What 5l quick detailer

My Clb quick detailer is running low as there no longer trading I need to look elsewhere )
I use the quick detailer to aid drying and help protect between proper bufftie sessions
If I can water it down 50:50 to make it go even further even better
The daily will get washed a couple of times a week atleast

Any advice on what to go for?

I’m using CarPro Ech2o at the moment and liking it. It’s super economical with its QD dilution rates. I would say just get the 500ml as that will last years no need to go for a gallon/5litres

I’m using it at 1:20 dilution

Iím with you i usually only buy gallons but with this stuff If you are using it at 1:20 the 500ml bottle will make 10 litres. With products like this that have such good dilution rates i prefer to get the smaller amount as I donít like them sitting around too long, you never know what their shelf life is.

I would go for either:

FinishKare #425 - Ultra Slick Polywipe
Or
Chemical Guys - Speed Wipe

I have started to use FinishKare 50/50 with Sonax BSD as a drying aid and it the bomb it leaves a awesome shine and even better the protection it leaves last at least 2-3 weeks, which in my book is more than approved for a QD.

from what I've used i'd be looking at:
Adams detail spray
AG smooth velvet

based on reviews from here the serious performance stuff could be worth a shout too
