I haven't found Green Star to degrade my wax. I use Green Star diluted 1:20, sometimes but rarely 1:15. I've been using Green Star for nearly a year now. Wouldn't use anything else. It cleans brilliantly.

I imagine this will be a very long term test and there will be no top ups for the sealant (I never bother anyway).

I will confirm all prep work and cleaning gear to be used tonight
So, how's the Fusso holding up?

Been using Green Star up to twice a week since the DSW went on 6 weeks ago still no noticeable degrading of the wax. I’m really impressed with Green Star really easy to use, almost touch less, and cost effective. I’m using 75ml in 1500ml of water enough to drench the car.

OP - how long was the dwell time?

I've been using Green Star for over a year (not many washes unfortunately) and always apply it before rinsing with a pressure washer and doing a hand wash.

Personally I wouldn't compare this with BH Surfex. I didn't like Surfex because of the white residue it leaves behind - this is fairly well know about. It's not an "issue" per se but can catch you off guard and leave you with more work to do.

I found green star much easier to work with.

Worth noting that neat snowfoam has never cleaned like this stuff.

I always tend to find snowfoam only takes off the loose stuff which the pressure washer would take off anyway. I've never found one that really wowed me.. but this stuff has.
You need to use BH foam, its the nuts.

I am a lover of all thing KC but its BH all the way for me, just make sure dilution is correct.
