Question Do you dose or glug?

We were wondering, do you measure out your shampoo according to manufacture instructions with capfulls etc, or do you just glug in whatever feels right?

i've gone for measure but after using the same shampoo regularly you get a feel for how much is needed and sometimes just 'glug' to around what i'd usually put in

Depends on the size of the container lol.

5Litres or above I tend to go with what feels right (The more the better right??)

My small Bilt hamber Shampoo I use one cap and its lasting a absolute age

Usually go by capful measurements, if there are no instructions then I glug away until I get it to how I like it.

Mine is in a 5 Litre container and i usual use 1 press of the dispenser - sometimes less depends on how dirty the car is (usually not very ).

If using Autoglym Bodywork conditioner rather than remove the cap to measure i just use a 'glug', its pretty easy to judge with experience how much to use.
