Thumbs up My top car cleaning products

I am very anal when it comes to my interior and exterior. So i thought this may be helpful information to some. These are the products I use to clean my car.
Car Wash Soap - Turtle Wax Ice- brings out the shine and leaves no residue or water spots.
Wax - its called Meguiar's Ultimate Paste Wax - Easy to apply and remove, leaves a real deep shine.
Interior Detail:
vinyl - Meguiar's Ultimate Protectant Spray - leaves no streaks and it soaks into the plastic instead of just on top.
I also use weathertech custom fit floor mats to keep my carpet safe and protected.
I use the little green carpet shampooer to shampoo carpets and the seats once every few months. not that my carpet/seats gets dirty but i figure it doesn't hurt to keep them looking like new.

I've been using Meguiar's products for years on my cars and boats with great results.

I especially like their Gold Class car shampoo, and it works wonders when you use it with a foam gun.

Mequires has a lot of great stuff, thier new microfiber compound might be the game changer in the auto detailing world.

I bought turtle wax ice car wash. i hated it. There was not much foam action at ALL. I had to put alot in and after i got done the whole car I din't have much soap left in there. I returned it and bought Black magic wet shine. WORKS GREAT. much better then TWI and cheaper. looks better to when i was done

Adam's FTW. All of their stuff. Zaino is great too, if you want to spend the extra time. Too may steps for me, though. I really have nothing else that I would recommend for a top quality wash/polish/wax. Anything you can get at Walmart or the auto parts store is second (or third or fourth) best. Do the research and get the good stuff. Your car will thank you.

Used them all and meguiars is just as good as any of them and with a very good price. Cant beat 105 and 205 with a pc.

Just switched from zaino to meguiars ultimate line.. Zaino's finnished product looked great but too many steps and hours. Hoping the meguiars stuff will be easier and faster even if I have to do it more often. Also for interior I use 303 aerospace protectant, it's a great product once you work it into your interior. It lasts long and really protects

I only use Meguiars on my car before.

I've switched to Adam's now. It's a little pricey compared to the over the counter one's but its worth every $$$ IMO.

Once you go Adam's you never go back!
