    Rupes Carnauba Soap

    I won some Rupes products, so I`ll review them, starting with the soap.



    The bottle is tiny! This is the most expensive soap I have (per ounce) I would probably reserve it for my car or maybe as a bonus if I`m detailing the customers car. This cost $20, you can get a gallon of gold class at Costco for $9.

    6 capfuls for about 3 1/2 gallons of water.
    That`s what the suds look like. It doesn`t even foam up. It feels like there`s not enough soap in the bucket.


    What I was working with. This is the dirtiest car I`ve washed.



    I honestly expected this to not clean very well, because it washes and waxes. This product did not disappoint!


    The jeep looks pretty glossy. I am curious how much protection is there. Will bird droppings etch the paint? Will tree sap adhere to the paint and still be hard to remove? I wonder how much UV protection is on it.


    The jeep looks good next to the Airstream trailer it tows.

    I recommend this if you want a high end soap that adds carnauba. It feels like I should be using this on a Ferrari or Tesla instead of regular cars.

    hmm expensive soap for sure... results looks good tho, any water beading or something after the wash and wax?

    Air stream looks like it can use a dose of NuVite polishes.

    I didn`t notice when I rinsed the soap off. after drying the car, maybe there would be some beading, I didn`t test for that, also I tried to upsell for a wax, but the client declined.

    Swissvax comes to mind. You could sell this as a premeum carnauba wash them with a Swissvax. Wonder how much that package would be. As to looking brand new, sadly you could feel the contamination and the paint is swirled pretty bad. He didn`t want a wax on it so I didn`t bother trying to up sell for clay bar decon and machine polish. I`d love to spend a few days with this thing.
