Default Good car wash product

I know I am probably opening up a can of worms here, but who makes a real good SUDSY car wash product? I just ran out of the one my wife bought me when I first got the truck. It was O.K., just not sudsy enough. My old man used to use dish washing liquid, but I have read things (like on autogeek.com) that say NOT to use it. What do you guys think?

I use adams car wash shampoo. I like it and it smells good lol. I think chemical guys have a soap called maxi suds or something like that. Don't use dish waging soap unless your trying to strip all the old wax and other products off.

maxi sudds is one that gets great reviews..i have it, and i find it just ok...most guys are using it in a foam cannon, and im just a two bucket washer. i much prefer Poorboy super slick and sudds.

if you are looking to oreder something online, id look into Poorboys super slick and suds, or chemical guys citrus wash n gloss...both very nice bucket washing soaps.

The best bang for the buck however, is Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate or their rinseless wash with Aquawax...

The chemical guys citrus wash is what I was referring to but I got confused with the maxi suds in the foam gun/lance.

I bought a product, it was inexpensive and very very sudsy and smooth. It is turtle wax car wash plus wax. It works extremely well and leaves a actual wax like appearance and a thin wax like coat. And it smells good too. A gallon is like 6 bucks. Trust me it's good stuff, but stay away from turtle wax interior dash board cleaner, if you have a painted dash it takes some of the paint off if you use it often. Ask me how I Know lol...

you know there was alot of hype surrounding the adams line of detailing supplies...so much so that i actually was going to be a distributor of the products...until i tired them.

i dont want to knock the Adams line, and i never tried any of the polishes (which is what i was really interested in), but some of the stuff i tried was terrible. the only thing i liked was the undercarriage spray..and that was just ok...therefore i never ended up getting on the adams bandwagon...too bad though..thee seems to be such a fiollowing, that im might have been able to move the products...unfortunately, i never really stood behind, or liked really much of what i tried.

while i never tried the car wash, I did try and didnt like the detail spray, the window cleaner, the waterless wash or the APC.

Good thing you brought that up because I never heard of adam's. I think you should also give that turtle wax stuff I use a try, it's very very good. I was actually impressed because I don't trust wash with wax inside. I just do a wash then do a couple coats of carnuba wax. I like synthetic waxes because it actually seems to be a bit more shiney but the carnuba lasts longer. Sadly where my truck is, all dirt roads. So I clean it and less then a mile it literally covered in dust :'( So I essentially wash it every weekend. But I absolutely love the turtle wax products. I never tried mcquires but I know that stuff is awesome for black trucks.

I have to say that is very weird that you didn't like any of those. Detail spray and the waterless wash are some of my favorites. Different folks for different folks though. I knew I liked it after a few times of getting a little technique down and people always complimenting on my truck. I'm pretty much known for having the cleanest black truck around (just don't look right now) lol.

yeah i dont mean to disrespect the Adams line, but maybe i didnt give it enought time...there must be something to the products, or it wouldnt have such a loyal following, and every vehicle ive seen that uses adams polsihes look great. for some reason i couldnt get into the products i tried...except the undercarriage spray...i loved it..and the grape smell....

I also did try and put the APC to a good test. i had to clean the crud from the bottom of my recycling boxes..you know the dried food/pop/and god know whatever else leaks out in there...I ried the APC on that and it didnt touch it...two shots of mean green (which i think is an environmentally safe/respecting product which usually = crap) ate right through it...

with that being said, if i do get the chance to try the polishes out im going to..
