Best pre-wash product?

Looking at buying some new AS pre-wash that won't strip the wax off and is pH neutral if possible? I'm mobile so don't need the forecourt type. I have the snow foam but sometimes its too messy to use in small spaces.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Bilt-Hamber Auto-Foam works great via pump sprayer. Dilute it 4-8% in sprayer (light dirt\summer time 4% and Winter time max 8%) and it's waxsafe.

Check this (can't create link with my phone):

(PH is 13, but it's still waxsafe)

People seem to have forgotten that we are in the autosmart section of the forum and it is unfair to mention non autosmart products which to be fair to the OP HE WANTED AUTOSMART RECOMMENDATIONS

I use Hazsafe XLS diluted 1:10 on my waxed car. Just spray on and then PW off. Does a great job of removing most soiling without touching the paintwork. I am curious as to how it might affect the wax durability after regular use? So far it's been fine though.

I also use hazsafe, it works very well. Tend to to 1-5 if it's heavily soiled but generally 1-10/20 ; I do find it doesn't foam up in a 1.5 litre pressure sprayer like g101, or as bad even. I do use g101 quite a lot as a pre spray.
