In my view car shampoo is a waste of money. A bucket of water , sponge and a drop of washing up liquid is all you need . I know people will say washing up liquid is bad due to salt in it but there is more salt on the road. Just a touch of washing up liquid is all you need.

Then use triple wax car polish rubbed on with paper towel/cleaning cloth and buffed to polish before it dries with cleaning cloth. Triple wax Car polish is thick stuff and a brilliant shine, out of all the other polishes I have tried, including those more expensive ones that you are supposed to be able to set fire to and it protects, Triple was polish is the best.
However shampoo is a waste of money.

I disagree. Most times I wash my car I don't wax and car shampoo does create a water-beading layer that washing up liquid itself doesn't.
Car shampoo also creates foam which visibly helps the cleaning process.
I'd also prefer not to deliberately put salt on my car.
There is also the factor that washing up liquid has a cost too so it seems a virtually pointless compromise.

See that's where you're wrong. Washing up liquid will strip any protection your cars paint will have on top of it. A properly polished car sealed with wax will never need polishing again as long as it's done properly. Washing up liquid (or any non PH neutral shampoo) will strip all of that off meaning you need to redo it again everytime you wash your car. Now if you use a good car shampoo (PH neutral) it will not remove that protection and will make it a hell of a lot easier to clean and dry.

This is an image of my own car which was polished (by machine) last year and since then it's only received safe cleans every week along with a top up of wax every 2 months to keep up the protection.

Any car detailers etc please excuse my choice of words. I've tried to make it a lot easier to understand for the average Joe.

I once washed my car using washing up liquid and scouring pads and didn't achieve the finish I wanted. I then tried touching it up with brasso polish all over the body and made things worse. My advice: cars need special soft cleaning products.

Aww shucks!!

i agree don't use fairy liquid. it will remove the wax on the car.
these car shampoos are designed to get rid of muck off the car and leave an extra wax protection that lasts 1 or 2 weeks.

Any car detailers wont be using the advertised product so your safe. Don't mention snow foam and claying it will melt their brains. Is that an R36 by the way?

I was thinking about getting this but th reviews of the product are bad..all i want is a bloody shampoo that'll make my car look shiny and clean for a decent amount of time..

Imma decant my three bottles of triplewax into one container and make NINE WAX.

I wouldn't use washing up liquid on a car, but I've found that mixing some cheap foam bath into car shampoo makes a creditable 'snow foam'.

Haha I Had to be careful not to go into all of that. I usually get carried away on this subject as detailing is a big hobby of mine :). And it's not an R36 (wish it was!) It's just a Mk5 Jetta TDI :).

I'm on DW but have hardly posted on there to be honest. ED38 the other hand I used to be quite active but recently I've not touched many forums. The main one I'm on is Uk-Mkivs.net :). And thanks dude it's actually a Jetta though ;). You wont believe how many people mistake them for Passats though.

Try Meguiar's Gold Class...

Auto Express used to recommend this shampoo against the others in group tests as it beaded water the longest and was good value BUT like many things in recent years.....it isn't the same anymore, it's very weak and doesn't lather barely at all, the product is poor now, I have used it for years....

i have some 1L bottles i bought over 5 years ago and still using it. its possible the 5L bottle i recently purchased from B&Q for only £3 which is a bargain i think may not be the same. like you say the formulae could have changed.

Nice shiny motor posted earlier would need cleaning within a week where we are, if you go any where. Tree sap, Sahara dust, pigeon poo , tar, dirt .

Bit like shaving foam you use a pea size drop (of washing up liquid ). If people want to pay for shampoo that is up to them, I would rather pay for triple wax and wax it each week.
Car washes despite what the claim can still leave brush scratches so it is still best to wash and polish yourself. Though slot of immigrants make a cash living taking over from the machines nowadays.

Your missing the point. All those contaminants you list above wont stick to the paint if you have a decent base of ceramic sealer or few coats of quality wax. They are hydrophobic so repel water so you just use PH neutral shampoo to remove the dirt but it leaves behind the protective layer of sealer / wax. If you use fairy liquid your just removing all the wax and protection you might aswell just hope for a good rainshower. Now a days snowfoam mild tfr like KKK Blizard or Magifoam and a rapid detailer such Sonax BSD have replaced the need for shampoo but I still like to use a shampoo with conditioner as I leaves a silky feel on the paint and aids claying with a Mitt.
By the way the carplan product advertised is next to useless if you care about paint protection. As far as I know it contains little or no Carnauba wax instead its got some synthetic water repellents which aren't as good as the competition. Its cheap you get what you pay for with a few exceptions. Happy to "provewrong"
