get a clay bar, they aren't expensive and the results are worth it. (and a side benefit is it'* very easy to do)

Glass cleaner...if you can find it, get the Zepp industrial glass cleaner (I found mine at Big Lots) and it does a very nice job. If you can't find that, get the Stoner Invisible Glass...a little more expensive but well worth it.

Purple cleaner for your tires and underbody if you are so inclined to do that.

WD40 for your door rubber. I also use it for engine detailing (hoses and such).

And the smell-good pinetree.

for glass cleaner use Invisiable Glass and newspaper. Never used anything better.

DEFINATELY get a clay bar, and do EVERYTHING (start at the top of the car and work your way around and down the car, so do the whole roof, then all the windows, then hood fenders and trunk, then lower. Until you get to the bottom of the car, since that is where the bar will get the dirtiest.

I would NOT use WD40 on the seals and stuff, silicone is the GM reccomended. And it is a good idea if you want to keep them nice and soft.
