    What is your prefered car wash soap/shampoo?

    Just that..... what do you reach for time and time again?

    Hope I listed all of them!

    I have tried:

    NXT Generation Car Wash
    Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo & Conditioner
    Deep Crystal Car Wash

    I always reach for Gold Class... Someone suggested #62 so me sometime ago I am going to pick up a gallon when I run out of Gold Class.

    I use NXT Generation Car Wash. I have not done alot of comparison between all the products as yet. But from alot of comments I have seen from the others the NXT is a great wash for those of us with hard water issues. From what I have seen, I tend to agree.

    I am almost out of it so will start trying some others soon. I have plenty of the following around the house to try next:
    NXT Generation Car Wash
    NXT Generation Car Wash

    Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo & Conditioner
    Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo & Conditioner

    #00 Hi-Tech Wash
    #00 Hi-Tech Wash

    #62 Carwash Shampoo & Conditioner
    Carwash Shampoo & Conditioner

    Hyper-Wash
    Hyper-Wash

    Shampoo Plus

    I've tried Gold Class and Deep Crystal and love them both, so I couldn't choose just one! I will be trying NXT next so then I'll hopefully pick one and stick with it.

    For general washing duties I use M62. It's sudsy, prevents spotting, and is fun to use. Plus, I try to use the Professional products whenever possible. If guys like me don't support it, who would I blame if they discontinued it?!?

    When I detailed cars every day, I used to use the old Detailer Wash & Wax. It was killer in hot weather, and was a great lube... Meaning, it was the best wash available for soaking down the car after every buffing step. I felt like I was cheating using it... It's one of the only washes I've used that would rinse away easily (if I let it sit too long). They should have put it in the consumer line.

    For wetsanding, interior leather cleaning (diluted, of course), and claying, I use #00 Hi-Tech Wash.
    I guess if I had to use only one wash forever, I would use M00, since it's so versatile (And I use deionized water). If only it was available in a gallon...

    I think I'll try the GC next. Thats' the ony consumer level product I have. After that I'll switch over to the 2 gallons of the Detailer line and use them up. I think my goal will be to end up trying the Pro line last as I suspect I am going to stick with those unless I don;t like them. Which I find highly unlikely.

    I only have enough NXT for 1-2 more washes. I bought the jug in June and probably got somewhere around 40 washes out of it (guessing here). It doesn't sudz up like some other brands I have used in the past. But that is no biggie for me. My main concern was fighting hard water and NXT did the job, or helped anyway. I hope the GC gives me similar hard water fighteing ability we'll see.

    I just finished a big bottle of Gold Class and hated it, didn't suds up at all. But I just started using NXT wash on recomendations on the forum and it's a lot better. I did use a sample of Hyperwash and really liked it but I wasn't in the mood to order online so I got what I could locally and I'm pleased with it.

    I'm not going to vote because I use the GC and NXT. It just depends. If I am going to the car wash, I grab the GC because it is in a small squirt bottle. At home, I use the NXT I don't know either. I assume that when the GC is gone, I will just fill the bottle up with NXT.

    Gold Class.

    I try others and keep coming back (haven’t tried #62 yet).

    But I am finding myself enjoying Shampoo-Plus, might end up keeping both around. (Always keep #00 on hand too but I don’t use it for regular washing.)
