    Products like : motomax , waxoyl , Formula 1 , 3M are good ...
    Motomax is easily available .. Dont go for some free stuffs usually distributed at petrol pumps ..

    [attachment=0:38tsz66r]IMAGE_532.jpg[/attachment:38tsz66r]

    Should one straightaway wash it with shampoo mixed bucket of water or should one first wash it with a soft cotton cloth and plain water using a pipe??

    I have a Formula 1 wash and wax shampoo that I bought today.
    Also, what is the difference between "Car Shampoo" and "Wash and Wax"?

    First use only Plain water. Never use cloth since it will give swirl marks. Second wash can be with shampoo and cotton cloth and a third wash. I use shampoo once in a while. I use hose for first wash and another bucket with soft cloth then wipe with the same cloth from top to bottom. I always use separate cloth for lower portion, below the door level to avoid swirl marks(wash daily). You can try Amway shampoo. It is really good.
