    What to have on hand in a second location

    I have a second home in AZ. and would like to know what to keep at this location.
    I cannot carry all my products back and forth and don`t want to duplicate everything.
    It gets stinking hot there in the summer, so I will have to store some of the stuff in the house where the temp. is kept at 88 degrees.
    No machines involved
    Things come to mind is a rinseless wash
    Waxes
    AIO, but I am not sure what would work by hand.

    Re: What to have on hand in a second location

    I`m leaving Monday from MN to AZ.

    I find myself doing more No Rinse (Optimum) washes for mainly dust removal then actual soaking the cars. I added a faucet to the water softener so I`d have softened water out of the hose but I only used it twice last year. My stockpile is kept in the house too when not there. The only items that go back and forth are a Flex "Finisher" a "Pixie" and a Griots cordless polisher.... (too expensive for duplicates).....friends cars always need "help" so machines save the arms!

    I do take pictures of my supplies "stash" that is left behind so I can remember not to bring duplication`s.

    I allow myself one Bankers Box of "stuff" and the box folds up in a closet until the return trip.

    Have fun. See you at The Pavillions or Cruising Phil`s on Sunday`s?

    I am not going down until first week of Dec. because of last dose of chemo.
    My wife would not accept another polisher so I am trying to do without.

    I`ve set up my daughter with the following at her home:

    hose + nozzle
    5 gallon bucket
    good shampoo
    wash mitt
    drying towels
    glass cleaner
    glass towel


    Add-ons:
    bug cleaner?
    AIO (I think your idea is good on this, BC.)
    tar remover?
    squeegee?
    other things you might miss from your weekly wash routine?

    I would keep:
    • Wash buckets + Grit Guard
    • A rinseless wash that be diluted for different uses. Many can be used for glass, interiors, waterless wash, etc.
    • detail spray
    • wheel brush(es)
    • MF wash mitt
    • MF towels - PFM or equivalent, damp wipe towels (that can be used for other duties, work towels
    • Terry towels
    • An interior detailer
    • carpet cleaner


    I only do rinseless washes on my own cars, and use a MF wash mitt, tRC Creature towels for the damp wipe, spritz with detail spray, then dry with PFM. I use what is leftover in the rinseless wash bucket to clean the wheel faces (I use a Mother wheel brush), and sometimes the tires (some rinseless washes have more polymers than others).

    If your place is anywhere near Scottsdale let me know. I`m an enthusiast with way too many polishers and products. I`d be happy to loan you a GG6 and some AIO and some sealants etc when you need it. I could also make you up a batch of some APC in a couple different ratio strengths.
