What to do with Mr Pink shampoo

So I got a free bottle of CG Mr. Pink with my order from Slims the other day. I'm already a dedicated user of BH auto-wash which I find to be fantastic. From what I've read about Mr. Pink, it's not all it's cracked up to be but is at least moderately usable so I can't see it replacing auto-wash as my go-to shampoo any time soon.

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest any creative uses for it? My current thoughts are either to use it up as a dedicated wheel shampoo or possibly run it through the snowfoam lance if i ever want to do a quick wash and don't want to use auto-foam.

Try it as a main shampoo to see how you find it. Just because others don't like it, may not mean it's the same for you.
If you try it and then still don't like it, relegate it to a wheel shampoo

Tried it and wasn’t impressed with it, used it as a wheel shampoo and haven’t replaced it when it was empty.

Mix it with apc.

I tend to buy ASDA smart price APC 25p for 1l and mix 1:4 in a pump sprayer and trigger spray for arch cleaning, exhaust cleaning and other ****ty jobs.

I also put a few squirts of their cheap dish soap in their for extra bit or cling you could do this with MR pink

Never had a worry off using Mr Pink as a shampoo, either by bucket or snow foam lance, Do need a little more in the bucket compared to my regular shampoo, good blast with PW to mix . Have not notice any adverse affect on any of my waxes .

It's quite thick so in a Lance it might do well.

I reckon I'll try it through the lance on the weekend. It's a new one for me so I want to give it a go myself. I'm sure it's fine so even if it ends up as wheel shampoo, that's okay by me as it means my auto-wash will last longer!
