    Todd –

    I use P21 on all of my client cars. I feel that nothing else should touch the exotics I work on.

    Gel wheel cleaner – The benchmark for wheel cleaners (I got my hands on 3 5000ml of the RED)
    Total Auto Wash – I pre-soak before washing with 1Z Perls (excessively mild soap)
    Polishing Soap – ridiculous on exhaust tips and hand polished wheel lips

    I still havent tried the wax, I may not get to it this season.

    i bought some p21 total auto wash. I am 22, but am not the best at cars. I have an 04 acura tl.. with black hawk paint.I bought the p21 total auto wash thinking it was a wash. i washed my car and it looks better than ever.. But i seen where people use it as a pre wash. Have i messed up ? it wont hurt the car will it ? can i use it for wash, or do i need something else ?

    • Chase,

      You’re correct…TAW is an all-purpose cleaner, not a car wash solution. While it won’t “hurt” your car the way you used it, you do want to get yourself a dedicated car soap. The TAW is good for pre-treating or deep cleaning areas, but it’s very strong and if allowed to dwell too long on the surface, or allowed to dry, or used on a hot car…it could stain the paint and potentially other areas as well. Use it dilluted, and apply it to lower (very dirty) areas on the car, or in the engine compartment, wheel wells, exhaust tips, etc when deep cleaning is necessary.
