I use Rainex! A gallon lasts me about a year and I wash every weekend. As far as carpet shampoo USE VERY LITTLE. If you use a lot your carpet will hold in a residue and your carpets will attract dirt.

I am not so concerned about shine as I am with water spots. I recently started using a wash soap made by Rain-X and it does a nice job of removing grime and leaves very few water spots compared to other wash soaps.

We use the ARDEX Repo Wash where I work

Very good stuff and yes it smells great...Kinda like cherries

It's not cheap though...

I think were paying like $21.00 for a gallon

I use the Meguiars Deep Crystal Car Wash on my personal truck and boat

It's not expensive and it leaves no water spots

Used to use Mothers Car Wash but discovered Dodo Juice Born To Be Mild. Only used it a couple times so far on my new Tacoma and so far it is excellant.

Maybe his wipers were already hard & brittle. I've been using rainx washer fluid for a couple of years, no issues with blades.

Meguairs FTW... Shouldn't use dish soap, it is bad for the clear coat finish, and strips your wax....

I have that purple stuff. I was just thinking how inferior it was to Mother's. Mother's seemed to clean much better and foam up more. Maybe I got a bad bottle or it doesn't work well with hard water.

Consider picking up a water softener. That's going to reduce more water spots than just switching soaps.

The best to order is Zaino, but you can only order it and its kind of expensive for the amount that you get

A little Z7 goes a long way.

X2 I have been using Zaino for 8 years. It will take whatever winter has to offer and still look good in the spring.
