    Re: Which Car Wash do you like the best?

    I'm puzzled by people's comments here about shine? Isn't a shampoo's job to clean safely? Personally, I feel that shine will only ever come from surface prep (polishing) and (to a lesser extent) LSP. Are people generally looking for a 'wash 'n' wax' product that will leave a shine by itself?

    I agree with you and I was thinking the same thing. I think there may be a misconception among some people that a car wash can shine paint. As you said, a car wash can only remove dirt etc to reveal a shine that was already there...

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Re: Which Car Wash do you like the best?

    Gold Class is my favorite and what I usually use. I would like to try Super Soap in the Detailer Line though. I have used GC for about 10 years or so...ever since I started driving. And to the two above posters. I have also used MANY other shampoo's in that time and I have no problem saying that GC leaves behind a definite shine over brands.

    Gold Class! It seems to work well for me, clean and looks good when I'm done.

    Re: Which Car Wash do you like the best?

    I have to say GC because when I finish washing a car that has a faded look and it has some kind of shine, you know it was something in the product and not just that you put water on it. I also say to the person who did not get good suds. I bought this stuff probably when it first came out. The directions said to just put a cap full in a bucket of water. I also pour the wash in the bucket before adding water. I dont' measure any more but if you keep it that way you still should have lots of suds. You also can tell if you have too much water because you wan't fell the wash mit glide over the surface. I usually wash my vehicle twic because of habit(used to miss the lower panel by the tires at the spray wash back in the day). Anyway, the first time over I wash top down. Then I switch mits and use a second bucket. This time I can really feel the mit just gliding over the surface. The bottle also used to say to let the water run off instead of spraying off with pressure. I don't know if that changed but that's how I used to do it and it always left a great shine no matter what condition or color the paint was. I high pressure it off now and it still looks great lol. I also think the deep crystal has a lot of suds. I used it a few times back in the day.

    Haven't used any Meguiar's car wash other than GC, but I really like it. I had been using the Mr. Clean system, but found that when doing a full 5 step process, the cars look much better with a GC step 1. Also, GC is readily available, smells good and is relatively inexpensive.

    I know I will not hear the end of this, but I have never had a problem with using Liquid Ivory. The water still beads after the wash is done and wax still last a couple of months. I get all the road grease off easily and still have wax on the car.

    I love gold class and I use NXT on really dirty cars so I voted NXT because every one else it seems voted Gold class but I like them the same and I could not get by without either.

    Deep Crystal and for a good reason. It is the only one I have used in the past few years. For some reason it was really cheap so I bought a few. They last for only having 2 cars to wash.

    I like a product called Wizards wash concentrate. Wizards is the company....i think it is based in Wisconsin. their soap is super sudsy and works great.
