Thoughts on KKD Citrus Magic

Another short review, this time trying out KKDs Citrus Magic. I see a lot of people really hyping this product up on here so had high expectations. No dilutions on the sample label that I could see, but a quick google told me that 1:20 was the norm. The passenger side door was swiped with a damp make up low down before the full car was pre rinsed.

80ml was in this sample bottle, this was mixed up in the IK9 with warm water to the 2L mark giving me a 4% PIR or 1:25. It foamed up surprisingly well and produced a foam that dwelled reasonably well. This was allowed to sit on the car for roughly 7-8 mins and during that time I could see the foam pulling dirt off the car, always a good sign.

It was pressure rinsed off and then swiped with another make up pad close to the same area as before. Both were allowed to dry before comparing. The results aren't quite that of the best on the market but it's not a million miles off. It's an above average pre wash but I wouldn't use it again due to price, dilution & performance compared to the competition.

Def clinging well - do you find anything you use via the IK9 has a better cling than via a snow foam lance ?

Hi guys,

Yes the car is wearing a layer of WP Oblivion which is roughy 2-3 months old. Has been washed 3 times since then by my GF and she has used whatever QD she hah at hand on it.

With the IK9 you have to really watch your dilutions. I'd say maybe 20-30ml is plenty mixed in 2-3 litres of water when using a typical '1" in the foam lance' type foam. If you put to much in you end up with shaving foam and struggle to get good coverage.

With products that state an exact ratio it's an improvement I think. The likes of Auto Foam used at 4% so 40ml in a litre of water gives a nice consistency foam which will dwell 5-7 minutes quite easily. I don't find you get more than 2-3 mins dwell from AF when used via a lance.
