Higher foaming shampoo?

Afternoon.

I have tried several shampoos of late, Megs Gold Class, Wash and Wax etc.

But my car is white, and the roads are grime! So looking for a good shampoo with cleaning ability and plenty of suds, the Gold Class doesn’t have many IMO, evening mixing plenty of shampoo.

The foam starts of ok, but fades quickly.

I was thinking Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss?

Thanks
Luke

I’ve just been using Adams wash and wax, and was really impressed by that! Loads of suds that where still there after washing two cars, so it’s well worth a go and sounds just what your after.

I was quite surprised by Carplan Trade shampoo. I bought some cheap to use as a prewash but was surprised to how much it foamed.

Zymol Auto Shampoo from Halfords is pretty sudsy - especially with a bit of warm water and a blast of the hose pipe into the bucket when half full. I've never run out of suds on the dirtiest of cars.

All assumes you are using two bucket method so dirt isnt returned to the wash bucket from the wash mitt, and therefore you're not asking more of the shampoo mix.

Carchem 1:1900, Adams Shampoo, ODK Jet, Britemax Cleanmax/Puremax. All excellent shampoos that foam up very well.

I do love the smell of the Zymol! Wasn’t a bad shampoo when I lasted tried it.

I must admit, I don’t use two buckets! 😔
