Car Shampoo Reviews
What’s the best way to wash my car?
There’s always that temptation of taking your car to an automatic car wash or a hand wash station, where a powerwash and a horrible stone and mud covered brush are provided. Take pity on your cars paintwork and treat it to a nice wash with your own fair hands. It’s a lot cheaper and a lot less damaging to your car this way.
Why shouldn’t I use dishwashing liquid (washing-up liquid)?
Dish washing liquid is too harsh for your paintwork and contains salt which rots metal. It also strips any previously-applied wax or sealants too! It’s much better to use a high quality specially formulated car shampoo. It’ll be much better for your paint and trim.
Ok. But what’s a good car shampoo?
There’s some great wash ‘n’ wax products out there that don’t cost the earth but do do the world of good for your car and it will love you until the end for this (well, we can’t promise that actually). Lets see what’s hot and what’s not.

A good product to use, won’t remove wax or polish, dilution rates are slightly high.
