Citrus recommendations?

I currently use autobrite direct citrus wash as a pre wash but I’m coming to the end of the bottle. I’ve done a bit of a search and seen KKD Citrus Magic gets recommended quite a lot. Is that the best citrus wash out there? Or does anyone have any other recommendations?

I find autobrites offering pretty good but just wondering if there’s any good alternatives?

I've tried the KKD one, its pretty good.
Auto Finesse is another decent one.
Gtechniq W5 is OK but you have to play with dilutions to get what you want.

Valetpro Citrus Pre Wash is very good, I’ve been using it for years & never felt the need to change

I use this at 1:7 as a pre wash in a pump sprayer

1:5 in a spray bottle for body lines window sills, badges etc and a detailing brush while the snow foam is dwelling

1:10 in a spray bottle for interior cleaning instead of an APC

This is a great product very versatile and comes in 5l its a no brainier

I've also used the Valetpro citrus pre-wash too. I'll be buying some more actually to help tackle the dried on bugs during nicer weather.
