    Red face What car shampoo do you use??

    I have recently tried G Techniq G Wash and I can say it is quite possibly the best car shampoo I have ever used.

    What I have tried before:
    - Autoglym Body Wash
    - Meguiars NXT Wash
    - Meguiars Ultimate Wash and Wax
    - Meguiars Gold
    - Turtle Wax, Wash and Wax

    Well it has worked a treat on my solid black A3 and it must have some serious polymer technology... water doesn't just bead off it runs for its life! In terms of the car being a dirt magnet... it has been repelling dust like never before as well. Has a nice subtle cherry smell to it too. Amazing stuff! Shame about the C4 though it lets the product range down.

    Water just disappears when the car is rinsed - thus I feel I have avoided the need to by an Aqua Gleam De-ioniser (30ppm).

    I've used
    - meguiars gold
    - dodo juice sour power
    - chemical guys citrus wash (current)
    The Dodo juice is the best so far. Bubbles really nicely, and is really smooth and glossy when you wipe the mitt over the panels.

    Tell Sandra what you'd like in your poll, I'm sure she can sort it out for you. I never really look at the swissvax stuff, it's in a whole new price bracket!

    I've used:
    - Autoglym Bodywork Conditioning Shampoo
    - Planet Polish Hullabaloo

    Currently using:
    - Dodo Juice Basics of Bling
    - Optimum No Rinse (hosepipe ban trial for me)

    Liking both the current choices. The Optimum No Rinse is real 21st century stuff and I'm liking it a lot. I'll try and do a write up at some point. It is so quick, no hose or PW to get out. Seeing the way the dirt runs off with a pre-spray gives me the confidence that used properly it won't cause more swirls than the usual method.

    I use Auto Glym Body Work Conditioning Shampoo, Demon Shine after and every few weeks Turtle Wax Colour Magic, gives a brilliant shine to my Brilliant Red Dynamik,
    Demon Shine makes the window rubbers rattle so make sure that you put some Holts lubricant or Auto Glym Rubber Care or something like that to take the rattle off it

    So far I have only used Autoglym bodywork conditioning shampoo on my cars. Think I will give the Dodo juice products a go next, they get raved about a lot.

    I use sour power by dodo juice but I did buy a few bottles of Meg's gold class when halfords had an offer on and i must say its a decent shampoo, slick suds etc so......

    But once the gold class has gone I must admit I wont be buying anymore, i'll stick with my sour power.

    Anyone used both the dodo juice and chemical guys shampoos? Was the Dodo juice any better or were they quite similar?

    I have Dodo Juice Basics of Bling shampoo and Chemical Guys Glossworkz shampoo at the moment. I only recently got the CG one and did my first wash on the missus car today. It looks really good. They are both really good, don't strip wax and give a good finish. I would buy either again happily.

    Im using zymol auto wash, smells amazing! Lathers up a treat and feels really nice and smooth over the panels.
    Also using this Farecla G3 Paste Waxstuff also smells awesome and a dream to work with.
    This is the obligatory beading shot result.

    Another one for Zymol, I have found it to be the best for shifting road crud and bugs.
