Must be a typo, the quoted 1:1500 IMO

If you click thro' one of the hyper links on that thread to the Elite website they quote a 1:500 dilute ratio on the product details

Thanks for the Review Pugnut,

As for the dilution,
Shampoo as a cleaner will work at most dilutions, and it varies effectiveness based on the water hardness, I've found the shampoo works effectively to remove dirt and road grime up to around 1:800.
However, to work as designed, and remove oils and surfactants blocking the surface of Cquartz products 1:500 is the ideal solution for UK customers,

The 1:1500 I believe was a typo when one of the resellers listed it on their website which has been quoted and re-quoted leading to confusion.

As for the label suggesting 1:400, this isn't our department however it could be that the labels were designed for US market where the water hardness effects the shampoo more. You will find a lot of big name US brands, when you import the shampoo to the UK the dilution ratios are stronger than required for the UK.

Hope this helps.

Just received and tried this new shampoo out (over cquartz finest), WOW!
- Cleaning abilities, most impressive!
- A little really goes a long way.
- Great suds & slickness, in fact the most suds experienced from any shampoo I've tried.
- Pleasant neutral smell, non overpowering whatsoever - no BS.

I really liked the ironx soap gel (still have and use - great for bug guts),
and the snow soap has been my daily 2BW product. It's great to see this
shampoo compliment the cquartz system, will definitely be using it between
polishing wipe downs also, very, very impressive cleaning abilities.

Can't and probably won't be able to comment on how this would result in washing over wax, as all our vehicles are cquartz coated.

Excellent work gentlemen.

How you would compare it against BH Autowash/BTBM/Lather?

Hi Sm81, hopefully one of the other members can answer this for you, while I have used the mentioned shampoos I would not wish to make comment on someone elses products vs our own as it would be seen as biased.

Ok. But why? I can tell why BH Autowash is mine but maybe not here.
