    Recommend best car shampoo?

    What is your favorite(s) car shampoo that cleans and does not strip wax? Or is there no such thing?

    I try to stay on a budget and can`t see spending a lot of money. I have used Turtle Wax Zip Wax car wash. It has great cleaning ability, has a wax to help with the shine, has good suds and lubricity for washing. 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.

    Nothing against CG but the only shampoo I have of theirs is citrus wash and only use it to strip any products on the car when I want to apply fresh polish and LSP. I`ve used Mr. Pink but wasn`t too impressed on a more than average dirty car.

    Hey guys, I have CG citrus wash and gloss. Its that the one that strips wax and sealant? I usually mix it one cap full (from the 16oz container) to 4 gallons.

    It shouldn`t strip using 1oz for 4gal of water. I use it as a stripper using 1oz for every gallon of water.

    The best shampoo, there is only one. Lusso Oro is the best. It`s pricey though.

    I have a lot of favorite shampoo`s for a lot of reasons, maybe all-time favorite being BLACKFIRE Wet Diamond Conditioning Shampoo, because I use mainly BLACKFIRE products on my vehicles and each wash rejuvenates the protection/shine.

    One of my new favorites is Pinnacle Black Label`s shampoo. Super slick, completely free rinsing, and a great smell as well.
