I use them both, but for different purposes.

APC is great for spot treatments when you are working with a hand-held brush.

APC+ is the fantastic if you are using an extractor or DA carpet brush (my case). Plus, the orange scent is nice.


If I had to choose one of the two, it would be APC+.

Like the smell better! I think it has less foam too.
Both work well though. :D

My APC+ doesn't seem to smell like oranges .... I wonder why, it just doesn't really smell like much of anything.

APC+ here, just seems to be more versitile to me, plus it smells awesome :D

I actually have both at the moment but have found myself using APC+ more often

When I purchased my APC, it was the replacement for the original APC+ of several years back.
Since I had been happy with the original APC+, the new APC seemed to be a logical choice.
Since I don't use an extractor, foam or no foam was of no concern to me. The scent was also of no interest to me. The APC certainly isn't objectionable to me at the 10:1 ratio I use.
When Meguiar's came out with the APC+ available today, I was under the impression that less foaming was the only real difference between it and APC.
After reading the comments of some of the Meguiar's people that they feel the APC+ is a slightly better cleaner, it appears that the APC+ might be the better choice when I need more.
That might be a while since 11 gallons of APC mix lasts a hobby detailer quite some time. :)

I have both, but must say I prefer APC.

I've read from the Megs people that APC+ is supposed to be a bit stronger, but I have found that APC works better for me. I like them both and I do prefer that "just clean" smell from the APC.

How does the DA carpet brush work for you? I can't afford an extractor right now and want to know if that will help.

I realy like them both. They both have a place. If I was forced to choose only one. I would pick the apc+.

It is a brush that screws on to your DA just like a backing plate. I just used mine a few weekends ago to clean up my mats and carpets and it made quick work of it. I just sprayed some cleaner on the section to be cleaned, grabbed my DA with the carpet brush attached, worked the brush over the area for a minute or two. Vacuumed as much cleaner off as I could and then rinsed with my Little Green Machine and used the LGM to vacuum the water up. Lastly I used my Stanely Blowers to dry the carpet for a few hours (probably only needed an hour but didn't want to risk mold/mildew). Did a fine job.

In a month or two my brother and I may tackle his miny van. My nieces and nephews have made a mess of it.

I have used both and I think APC+ is better for my uses. Seems to not foam up as much and leaves a nicer finish.

Don't like the smell though.

APC+, because it can actually be sprayed out of a spray bottle, unlike APC which foams so much, it's literally impossible to get it to come out. :nervous1

Interesting.
At times I have even used APC with a foaming sprayer to get it to foam and cling to wheel wells. (Didn't work all that good)
When used with a regular spray head, I have no problem whatsoever in spraying it on a surface. Actually, no foaming is even noticeable.
I use it at 10:1 in most cases, but the few times I used it at 4:1, it didn't seem to foam a great deal either.
The gallon I am using was purchased a few months after the original APC+ was discontinued and is probably a few years old. Maybe that is the difference. :confused:

I use APC+. It's great for all-around cleaner (house and auto), and for carpet extraction as well.

Day to day, APC+, simply because it smells better. Although I have a gallon of APC so I will sitll be using that as well.

Ive used APC+ on leather and have never had a problem. More specifically I will use it with a mr clean magic eraser and use the APC+ instead of water if it is really soiled leather. I use it at a ration of 10:1
