Hi guys looking for some ideas for a wax safe car wash, currently looking at AF Lather or Dooka Wash Si?

Any other advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Ive tried lather, autowash, gold class, body work shampoo by auto glym, Valet pro advance car wash, and britemax cleanmax (this is my fave and I braught a gallon of it and attached a hand pump, 3 squirts in a bucket and im good to go.

AG shampoo conditioner is nice, although not that foamy, their new UHD shampoo is supposed to be very good.

Meguiars gold shampoo is nice - I’ve used this previously.

AutoAllure Luxallure shampoo is very nice to use.

Adams shampoo is supposed to be very nice

Gold class and cleanmax both contain gloss enhancers and will have a detrimental effect on the wax performance.

You want a pure shampoo like adams shampoo, waxplanet lava, carchem 1:1900 or britemax puremax to best maintain your LSP.

Fairy Liquid or Dawn plus. Both well-documented here to make no difference to waxes. Deffo no gloss enhancers.

Joking aside, I use Gyeon Bathe or GT Gwash, both pure and neutral, plus a capful of ONR for slickness (which theoretically does add polymers).
