Car shampoo is specially formulated for use against dirt on vehicle paintwork. Used in conjunction with a wash mitt, car shampoos are the safest way to ensure a scratch-free wash. We recommended you wash your car with proper car shampoo and a two (or three) bucket method.

Vehicle shampoo is mostly made up of surfactants (Surface Active Agents) which are chains of carefully designed two-part molecules. One end of the surfactants is hydrophilic (water-loving) and the other end is dirt-loving. When an automotive shampoo is applied to your vehicle, these surfactants seek out the dirt and surround it so that it is able to be lifted from the paintwork surface.

Fairy liquid used to be the go-to soap for car washing – we cringe at the thought now! However, dishwashing soaps don’t rinse off easily, can dry out paintwork, can cause swirls and holograms in the surface, and can effect waxes and sealants on your vehicle. Car shampoo has a very different formulation. When used with water, it can create a lubricated liquid that allows the wash mitt to glide over the surface of your vehicle. It also rinses off easily, decreasing the risk of dried soap which will ruin your paint.

CARPRO Reset Intensive Car Shampoo was formulated as the perfect partner to nanotechnology based sealants and coatings, with cleaning properties tailored to their unique needs. Utilizing Intelligent pH Surfactants, Reset breaks down road grime and traffic films with the power of an alkaline cleaner, whilst being as gentle on the surface as a pH-neutral shampoo.

Gtechniq G-Wash has been specifically formulated to work in harmony with Gtechniq's range of coating products, such as C1, Exov2 & Crystal Serum Light. Gtechniq G-Wash produces a high foam content which both breaks the bond between the dirt particles and your vehicle’s paintwork and lubricates particles thereby enabling the safest possible removal of traffic film, G-Wash will ensure maximum gloss retention through reduced micro scratching during the wash process.
