Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am going to wash it for the first time in my driveway.  Can plain liquid dishwashing soap
be used?  Do I have to buy a specific soap to do this job? I would prefer not to do that.
Thanks in advance.

Normal Liquid Dishwashing soap can remove the wax and polymers off the cars finish. I recommend a specific car wash you can buy at any auto parts store or department store in the auto section. The soap has some chemicals and wax like substance to keep you car clean and shiny. It's not all that expensive. You use a small amount in a bucket of water.
