Best Car Shampoo?

Ask a Question

What does everyone use as car shampoo?

Is there a particularly effective and affordable option, besides Fairy liquid which I hear is not so great on the paintwork!

Never ,Never, Never use detergent of any kind on a car . Doh !!! It will strip off any wax or coatings you have on your paintwork and look a mess .

Any supermarket car shampoo is fine and will clean and won't damage your car paintwork , a standard wash and wax may even make it shine a bit for not much money probably £5 for 5 litres ,probably 100 washes (cheaper in fact than fairy liquid ) .

After that for a deeper shine it can get pricey .

A great addition to make it shine is a wet wax , while the car is still wet post wash spray with the wax and just wipe off for a nice shine " Demon Shine " is about £5 and will do about a dozen post wash shines .

I personally swear by Meguiars hybrid ceramic stuff but it is pricey , Turtle wax hybrid solutions a bit cheaper .

In conclusion a supermarket wash and wax will be fine , just do NOT use washing up liquid !
