Default Good Way to Wax (and clean floor mats)

Okay so I decided it's time to wax my subaru ('99 Outback Legacy). I have never waxed a car before so I have no clue what to do. So any help on what to do? What to buy, a good wax, ext. Also

I got a nice amount of mud on my floor mats (simple default cloth like ones). Is their any good way to clean them?

Oh and when I am done washing and waxing the car I plan to put a layer or Nu Finish on (any tips with that would help to)

Meguiars products have a good reputation. If it has not been waxed for a long time, get a surface cleaner (car polish) and use that first. Have a look here:
