Tip on cleaning car

Found this on a '13 tips to a clean car' Not sure its the best idea.

A surprising no-wax washer

Add 1 cup kerosene to a 3-gallon pail filled with water and then sponge the solution over your car. You won't have to spray the car before washing or rinse or wax it once you're done. And the next time it rains, rainwater will bead up and roll off the car, lessening the likelihood of rusting.

Junkman recommends a Brillo pad for stubborn water stains. That's what I always use now.

I can't wait for someone to come in here and think they're serious and come back with a thread with a car like this.

I'm sure some Adams brilliant glaze followed by a thin coat of Adams buttery wax will make that look like new again.

Don't forget to do that step in the sun. The kerosine works well when the surface is hot.
