Yeah it's all relevant isnt it? Cutting through the marketing and hype is 90% of this business.

Someone ay say "hey yeah i have a wax i love it, works for me £100 for 30ml, made by monks in the mountains and bottled by virgins" another will say "screw that, I get 5l for £3 that works for me"

Its what works for you, that KC stuff keeps popping up on my radar and recommendations so likely have to check them out. I LIKE concentrates, you can store and bottle in sprayers... in fact i like sprayers, for ease. I USED to like pastes and more old skool products as it reminds me of the 80s however in the real world, results are what you need, and the easiest way to get their in least time (for me, this is my view, others may have their own stories, may enjoy spending all day waxing one car)

However favourites normally comes with a comment of 'why' which can fit someones requirements.

Technicians Choice TEC582 Ceramic Detail Spray in 1 gallon- 5 gallon is getting a lot of love but USA only...


AutoFetish (youtube)goes on about Megs Detailer range and every product Ive used has been impressive. Im tempted to grab some Xpress wax as he uses it inside and out, the APC is great and the only thing that got cat poo out of my carpet in the house! His products crossover all day.. Wheel brightener whilst initially expensive also looks great.


Has anyone tried any detailers, bulk 5l from ebay? theres a few there quick detail rinse waxes with polymers going for about £10-15!

PRo-Kleen Washless wax was really really nice to use in 5 litres, spray on and wipe off. Even tried on a very soiled car and it did quite well despite the 20+ clothes needed haha. Im going to ry using it as a drying aid/rinse wax next time around.


On the flip side we also have £1 stores stocking some unknown stuff, you could go int here and got 10 litres for £10 - again worth a test/look for the zero-snob crowd.

Sorry, I should have added my other post here - What are you favourite wheel cleaners in 5 litre options?

If I had the space, and used the products more, I'd probably also pick up a 5L container of AutoSmart Tardis.

Tried the clean 100+ today - i woudnt say its meguiars standard but its ok. It has an oily texture and residue but it does work really good on glass so thats a bonus.

I dilluted it and its less oily but not as good at cleaning ability - megs is industrial, bt its probably very toxic to breath in too
this stuff smells a bit like sticky stuff remover

For cheap apc, nothign can beat 1l of APC or 25p Morisons or Asda have their own, I can get 4L of APC for £1 same quality as Flash.

No way you can beat that I dare any one to try !

And its dilutable I use it 1:4 to clean brushes buckets arches etc

That's interesting. I use it at 1:19 for general duties/bug removal and I find I could probably reduce that significantly and still get good cleaning power. I also use it at 1:9 for arches/engine bays and find it just chews through dirt and grease. I can't say I've ever found it be especially oily either, but perhaps that's more of an issue when used neat.

I’ve found Power Maxed 5litre products offer great value.

Glass cleaner, frequent use acid free wheel cleaner are the two most used products.

Although buying 5litres of C2v3 and 5 litres of Car Pro EcH20 was a bit
