    Crystal Seal question

    If I were to add a second coat of Crystal Seal about a week or two later, do I have to wash the car with BF Wet Diamond Shampoo or will any shampoo do? Does a shampoo generally leave something behind or do they pretty much get all rinsed off? Lookiing forward to trying Crystal Seal. Thanks

    Best bet is to use a shampoo that rinses clean, and does not add anything.

    I wouldn`t imagine washing the vehicle with BF shampoo would negatively affect the BF CS (crystal seal) that much- but I could be wrong
    I`d wash with BF shampoo (if you have it) and use CS as a drying aid
    Ideally I`d recommend Poorboys Super Slick and Suds

    I don`t have any BF shampoo, Forgot to get it. It`s hard to find Poorboys stuff out here in Hawaii. How about Chemical Guys shampoos? Will they leave behind anything.

    Carpro Reset is supposed to rinse completely clean and leave nothing behind.

    Meguiar`s Hyper Wash is another one that leaves nothing behind.

    Re: Crystal Seal question

    About the only way you can tell if the soap has any "glossifers" is to read the label or the manufacturer`s description. I use CarPro Reset or Ultima Paint Guard Wash when I want clean paint. The Ultima is a little pricy but a little goes a long way.
