    Re: has anyone ever used this wash soap

    My first thought is I would never use a powder auto soap over a liquid one. I'm not convinced not matter how well you mix the powder, that the powder granules would completely dissolve to a point where it wouldn't cause swirling or scratching. I also don't think a powder car soap could match the lubricity of a luquid one like Megs Gold Class or NXT, but I'm a novice to auto detailing, so I'll step aside and let the Big Dawgs have their say.

    Thats my thoughts as well... no mater what, the amount of mixing, stirring or agitation some of the powder will remain a powder. Stick with liquid!

    I agree with the others completely mixing it would seem to pose a problem.

    If you read the product description, it states how great it is for vinyl tops. That is from my day back in the 70's. Just like paint and waxes have changed since then, I believe so has car wash soap.

    I would never use that. It would never completely dissolve and mix together in the water, thus causing swirls and scratches. It looks really old. There's a reason why the top 5 car care products don't have that type of product. Stick with NXT or GC Wash.
