How do you just wash your car and not polish and wax it?

Sometimes I see people make comments like "I wash my car once a week but wax once a month".

If I were to just wash my car, I'd have a lot of water spots on it. The water spots mean that I have to use some paint cleanser (like P21s cleanser) to get them out. If I use the cleanser, then I need to apply a new coat of wax-- so its like a whole vicious cycle.

What do you guys do when you "just" wash your car?:confused:

You guys totally crack me up.

Yes, I wash my car at least once a week, but that one time might be at the coin-op carwash with the high-pressure wands.
If you wash once a week I'd hate to find out how many times a day Al does it. :yikes: I have no idea how I'd manage to wash it on a weekday, even. (no, I will NOT get up at 5am nor wash it in the dark after sunset)

Unless it rains, it takes my car 2 or 3 weeks to even look like it wasn't washed just the other day.

I suppose it helps that my car is white and is garaged at home and in a structure at work.
