    Wash the car, dry, use detailing spray to get rid of any watermarks left, and then apply a resin based sealant like Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection. I don't have etch problems at all .

    Definitely go for the Meguiars quick detailer - I use it all the time and my car looks brilliant. Best stuff.
