    Re: Recommend best car shampoo?

    Love me some Chemical Guys soaps. I like to use Citrus Wash at 1oz/gal to strip LSP, and for maintenance washes Mr. Pink in a foam cannon and Glossworkz in the bucket. Glossworkz smells so good. I just wanna bathe in it.

    Wax and shampoo threads are like GEICO commercials at this point.

    It may be a shorter list of washes people do not like. They are like many things - lot of subjectiveness involved so all about personal preference. Some would wash just with water if they could get away with it..and some do!

    Just tried Duragloss 902...very nice cleaning, smelling, and sudsy soap! Could this be used for a maintenance wash product for coated cars (Cquartz UK)?

    Re: Recommend best car shampoo?

    I grew up on zip wax car wash. Today I would never use it as I don`t want the wax getting on my coatings. I prefer LSP safe shampoo. I have used a few and they are all good:

    1. Poorboys super slick and shine. -Still would purchase, great price and performance

    2. Ultima Paint Guard Plus-purchased this when I was using the UPGP and it is concentrated so it lasted longer than the use of UPGP.

    3. Lusso Oro wash-The most mild wash I have found to date. I use it on my cars when they are not too dirty and it seems to extend the coatings and it smells great.

Call me cheap but I use it and it works for me and can`t see spending $15, or a lot more on some brands, on a pint of shampoo for the car. JMO.

    Re: Recommend best car shampoo?

    I already posted some of the stuff I have used in the past and I can tell you that other than smell, I do not think I have used one that ever hurt the LSP or did not remove dirt. Some foam more than others in the bucket and some require more concentrate to get that super slick feeling but its hard to make a mistake in any shampoo you buy in this store or from a reputable company.

    I know my mix is heavy and I di this because I hope it cuts down on marring. When it rains, you should see the foam that rises out of my pavers.

    Some of my Favs are:

    Poor Boys SSS: slick, slick, slick. And great suds.

    Lusso Oro: see above, even more so.

    CGs Honeydew: Best in foam cannon, period.

    P21S Soap: very gentle with wax. For when the car is only a little dirty.

    Vic`s Super Soap: See above.

    Sonax Gloss Enhancing Shampoo: like a real shampoo

    1Z Exclusive Gloss: good all around

    CGs Citrus Red: aggressive cleaner for filthy cars

    Dodo Juice B2B Mild: Good all around.

    Re: Recommend best car shampoo?

    I have something of a car shampoo jones and I must have tried fifteen or more. I tend to prefer shampoos that don`t have a ton of glossing agents or, god forbid, wax added. My favorites are:

    Lusso Oro Auto Bathe
    Dodo Juice Born to Be Mild
    Prima Hydro Wash

    with more in the way of glossing agents
    Optimum Car Wash, with Duragloss 901 as a close runner up

    Interested in but yet to try
    CarPro Reset
    Orchard Auto Care Bramley Bubble Bath
    Bilt Hamber Auto-Wash
    ArtDeShine Nano Shampoo

    Re: Recommend best car shampoo?

    I use Meg`s Gold Class for my families car, they don`t need any crazy shampoo detailing and I use it with a foam cannon.

    When using a foam cannon and two bucket method afterwards is it ok to mix two shampoos? I have CG Glossworkz and was wondering if I should have that in both foam cannon and bucket to take advantage of the affect?

    Thanks!

    Re: Recommend best car shampoo?

    Our highly concentrated, anti-corrosive car shampoo auto-wash has once again, won the best buy award from a top car magazine.

    This time it`s Professional Driver who were kind enough to present us with the best buy car wash award, and rating the product 5/5.

    Check out the article here on page 38!

    9 other car shampoos were tried out in this comprehensive test, which saw some big names get put to shame and some lesser known brands take some glory!

    Heres a taster of what the guys at Professional Driver had to say -
    "Essex Producer Bilt Hamber just gets the verdict here thanks to the tiny amounts needed and low cost. Remarkably it combines this with a water repellent finish that beads water away. A winning combination."

    Auto-wash comes in a 300ml bottle and costs £9.14, this may sound pricey at first glance, but because you only use 5ml per every 10ltr bucket of water, it works out very economical.

    Click here now to buy yours!

    Used PBL Diamond Coating Shampoo this weekend and it worked great. I added a splash of Pinnacle Signature All Purpose Cleaner for extra cleaning power.
