While it's such a seemingly simple question, there are many answers to that question. To help me answer you better, I was wondering if you already have some supplies or are you looking to purchase a full kit? Also, are you looking for just the basics (bucket, wash mitt, soap, dry towel) or more involved maintenance items, like wax, dressings, glass cleaner, etc.?

Depending on what you're looking for, you can either get something like the DI Packages Washing and Drying Starter Package or something with more products like the DI Packages Washing and Drying Advanced Kit. You can obviously get random items not in the kit as necessary, but those two should be a good starting point.

Please let me know if you need any help putting together a kit and I'll be more than happy to help.
