Default Starting a discussion about car care products favorites vs least favorite

Hey guys. As i stated in previous discussions i love spending a whole day making my baby nice and shiny. So what is every one using to wash wax and polish their rams? Also what are some products that you have used that you hated?

Favorites

Wash- when it come to car was i just buy the cheapest since i follow with a wax any way

Wax- For black i swear by turtle wax black box wax. for all other colors my favorites are zymol and meguires professional yellow

Tire shine- Basic armor all foam

Metal polish- I havent found a chrome polish i liked yet but for any other metal hands down Wenol found at ace hardware and amazon i havent used it on chrome but jesus its crazy on aluminum and magnesium

Glass- Surf city garage "clearly better" glass cleaner. Only glass cleaner ive seen that you can spray on a hot window in the sun and not leave a streak

Carpet cleaner- Folex

Leather- Lexol is the only one ive used so i cant comment to much on this one

Leather/Plastic dash- meguires quick interior cleaner (no gloss)

Interior plastic/leather trim- basic armor all

Clear exterior plastics- meguiars PlastX

Exterior black plastic trim- mothers back to black

Rubbing compound- 3M rubbing compound

Clay bar- Meguiars professional detailing clay (mild) its a blue clay block in a round black tub. It works better then mothers in my opinion and better then their regular clay bar kit. I use it with Meguiars quick detailer spray wax to lubricate the clay against the paint

Head light restoration- For oxidized headlights 3M headlight restoration kit is the only one id ever recommend, in my opinion it is the only one that truly works

Air freshener- believe it or not but AXE body spray is great for making the interior smell nice and it lasts quite a while. If you have a bad odor how ever ozium gets rid of it really quick its just a little strong and new car sent smells like lemon

Products i hated:

Turtle wax black tire coat- Jesus this product should have a recall or something... what it basically is is a small can of clear coat paint which is why its "dry to the touch" when i used this product it left my tires with a oil on water rainbow shine after it was on a few days on top of that it left little over spray spots all over my windows which lead to an extreme glare when the sun was hitting it. i used so many things to remove the spots and ended up having to use goof off which even still didnt remove it all... worst car care product ever in my opinion

never dull- although a good product it is terrible on chrome which was my mistake i think because i dont think its advertised to use on chrome

nu finish wax- its not terrible but for a wax i think its one of the least effective ones ive used

liquid glass paint polish- i personally dont feel like it stands up to what it claims to do

headlight restore- blue magic headlight lense restorer. this product is good on non oxidized plastic if you just want to shine it up. if you buy it to remove oxidation on headlights you are wasting your money.

Turtle wax bug and tar remover- it will remove bugs but what standard liquid car soap and a little elbow grease wont. as far as burnt rubber in your wheel well and on your fenders its useless.
