PostSubject: Recommendation for cleaning stuff for a DS/S   19th January 2010, 11:49

Davey finished the last of my AG shampoo, when he attempted to clean his van at the weekend(!), and am looking to purchase some new shampoo.
Does anyone have any recommendations.
Have been happy with AG but would like to try something else, maybe one of the DoDo Juice ones???
ANy advice/recommendations greatly appreciated!!

I like Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo. Foams nice and always worked well on Jack.

Hi Gill both goofy and I use the same as Vics and really happy with it. We got 2 massive bottles when they were 3 for 2 at Halfies and only used a quarter of one of them so far, little goes a long way.

Ok ....... Very Happy

Traffic Light System : Red, Amber, Green

Caked in Cr*p - Salt, Tar, Road Grime etc

Chemical Guys Wash and Gloss :

Citrus based helps to break down all the contaminates while lubricating surfaces allowing debris to be gently rinsed off. ONLY use a small amount (1 cap full to 4-5 gallons of water) as it is very good at its job. ONLY use larger amounts if you want to strip wax and polish etc to start a clean slate as it is extremely concentrated. Glossy wet finish, suds and polymers lubricate grit etc :






Fairly Soiled - Dust, general driving road grime / film

Zymol Auto Wash : Natural Concentrate :

The name speaks for itself really high quality stuff Wink - pure natural oils : Lemon, Banana and Coconut Oils - Brilliant cleaning power lubricity is great can feel the dirt lifting carefully in the suds and not scratchy feeling. Again less is more on the quantity used. Shiny Bright with gloss finish (if that makes sense)






Very Lightly Soiled / Just Waxed

Chemical Guys Body Wash and Wax

Chemical Guys again ! shifts the dirt and brings back the life to your wax (despite the name Body wash and Wax its a synthetic wax that enhances the wax/gloss on your car). Like Megs Gold Class has ormula includes a synthetic wax that helps stop calcium drying to the surface and so preventing water spots. It also makes the water run off in sheets. - wet glossy finish

T can i suggest if your happy to do it. scratch That you compile a thread for all the products/top 3 you recommend for all cleaning needs. Then we can all refer to it once our current supplies run out. Then you dont have to repeat everytime some one ask & then refer to that thread Confused

We will certainly appreciate it Hug & I am sure others will do to.

Many Thanks

Back on topic Laughing

I find Supernatural Shampoo or Sour Power Gloss Enhancing Shampoo better - Mild is 'mild' less gloss - everyone has a favourite though.

Yeh a list of must have's/what you recommend for a full cleaning task/valet

i.e - like you did for the shampoo & have done for the wheels. Wash mitts, polish,etc/product recomendations but all in one place Laughing

So we can look at then follow/buy what we need

So we can all valet our mini's prob/the T way

Just a suggestion & thought if we had one thread it saves you from keep repeating your recommendation/when you working & people need your advice we can refer them to that thread & then if they req any further assitance/guides etc they can theh ask

Up to you but i am sure it will be really usefull & somthing that i want to do use/do after i used my current supplies

What do you think scratch
