This is the shampoo I use for stripping wax and prepping the car.I like it because it doesn’t dry out plastics / rubber like Dawn will. I use at least 4oz in my Gilmour foam gun. I haven’t tried a different shampoo for stripping wax so my opinion is a little biased when only comparing to Dawn.
Iron removal products are an essential part of the decontamination process. They remove fallout, overspray, and all other kinds of embedded contaminants. I use Iron X before I clay the car and it saves me a ton of time. Beware that this is one of the worst smells known to man!
I rarely need to use this because my car has several coats of wax and I usually remove the bugs the same day. It’s good to have a specialty product in your arsenal for the situations where the car is caked with bugs over an extended period of time. Also, this product will strip the current protection so only use it when decontaminating or make sure to reapply your wax/sealant afterwards.
This is a product that makes so much sense especially on paint that is in good shape. I have the medium grade block and it works well. Just use some lubricant and water and it works just as well as a clay bar, but saves a ton of time! Don’t leave it in the sun because the rubber part will melt – don’t ask me how I know that!
This does the job, but is honestly not my favorite because it turns my hands blue. You can use soapy water or Adam’s detail spray as well, but detail spray can get expensive. Clay lubricant is nice to have though.
