Washing your car at home

So I think I'm going to start washing my car at home, have heard horror stories of people frequently using touchless or soft cloth car washes, and I'm running out of loonies and toonies at the coin car wash.

What kind of car wash products do you use and where did you get it from? A part of me just wants to go to crappy tire to get it all... but thought I'd hear it from here 1st!

I use Adam's. Their products can get a little pricey, but I love them.

+1 on Adams. I believe their products are more based to GM vehicles as well if i remember right. Their car shampoo is top notch, bunch of suds.

x100 on Adam's.

They should have a kit that comes with 2 buckets, and a bunch of washing stuff. They are a vendor here, you should reach out. See how much for a nice package to get you started on washing at home.

Adams Customer here. Use the Two Bucket Method, get the Grit Guards for your buckets.

I've been using Adam's products for years. Great stuff, but a little pricey

Mr Pink by Chemical Guys is my go-to for washing... if its really dirty i'll take it to the local DIY wash first.

Megs Gold Class is my second choice

So far, I really like Mr. Pink, then Meguiars. Thought bird poo had etched my clear coat last week, but after Mr. Pink wash, paint was perfect!

I like Adams products but there is a Chemical Guys in Pickering on Bayly St. I have been slowly converting.
