Which detailer do you recommend?

Hi all,

Whenever I take my car out for a drive, I always wipe the wheels down with a microfibre cloth to get the brake dust off when I get home.

But I'd also like to remove the dirt from the body of the car so I don't have to clean it so often.

I've been recommended a few products, which do you think would be best? Also is there any others you'd recommend? And can they all be used in the body, wheels and windows?

Meguiars Ultimate Quik Detailer
Dojo Juice BoB Quick Detaling Spray
Roar Detailer 730

Thanks,
Richard.

Neither of them. Bouncers Done and dusted is a winner. Or look at the ADS range. Fruit twist and banana shake are great. My personal favourites are Zaino Z6 and Z8 for gloss. For protection Sonax BSD is the one. But for dusting off D&D is great

I hope this helps

If you want a QD for wheels, I've found Autosmart Tango at 9:1 to be ideal.

There is a hint of degreaser about the way it works that gets things a bit cleaner than a normal QD. Cheap to try as well; 500 ml is cheap and will make 4-5L. Perfectly good on bodywork. It will streak if you go beyond 8:1, so experiment yourself.

I am currently doing the same, cleaning wheels every time I drive home, but I'm spraying tyres and wheels liberally with a 15:1 solution of Meguiars Rinse Free Xpress Wash (D114). It's like super soap in a bottle, but it's not a QD, more like a Waterless wash.

For me it had to be Sonax BSD, it's a great all rounder. Just use sparingly, and it will last an age.
I've even used it on my glass shower screens

ok I'le through another into the mix, Optimum No Rinse, although not strictly a detailer it can be diluted to make some and its ideal for rinse less cleaning even if the car is slightly more dusty than usual.

Infinity wax rapid detailer spray. Almost foolproof to use. Can also be used on windows, plastic trims, wheels etc. Leaves no smears. So so easy to use. 500 ml is ready to use and is about £8. But would recommend buying the 1 litre as it's a concentrate and is £12 or £13. 1 litre makes 5 litres. Unreal stuff. The only other spray type detailer I use now is BSD. Funnily enough mixed 50/50 with the infinity

Hi richard,

Any reputable QD would be fine, but if you want to try and reduce inflicting any scratches ect into the paint make sure you use plenty of perfectly clean MF cloths (at least 8) in my experience and use each of the 8 sides of the microfibre per wipe. spraying plenty of the QD on the panel and MF to aid lifting and lubricating any particles.

I would recommend GTECHNIQ C2V3 Or bouncers beading marvellous as great products to use. check their usage guidelines too.
