Product Description

Chemical Guys Citrus Wash is an extremely concentrated paintwork cleaning shampoo. The citrus based cleaning agents are extremely gentle and safe to use on your vehicle's entire exterior. Just add one ounce per gallon of water to create a paint safe shampoo formula that can remove the old sealant and wax on your paint. Your washing bucket will quickly fill up with tons of suds that makes washing very safe and easy. Having a paintwork cleaning shampoo like the Citrus Wash around is critical for any detailer who wants to start off their detail with a fresh surface. Trying to use a clay bar and polish over old sealant and wax will reduce the effectiveness of each of those steps. If you want to make sure you get the absolute most out of your sealant or wax wash the surface with the Citrus Wash before any application, so the surface is totally bare. Removing the old sealant and wax allows the new coat of sealant or wax to form a tight bond with the surface and give you longer lasting protection. As most top quality detailers know the real shine comes from your prep work and starting off with the right shampoo is extremely important. Don't risk getting sub par results, get the shampoo you need for a proper detail.

Great stuff. I use this as my stripping soap for when I do full polishes on cars. It will clean a car like no other. I will note that it's very thick product compared to other soaps. Serious business!

Product is exactly as advertised. Use only as instructed for the end result you desire. When I want to strip old sealer and wax, I use 1 oz. To use as a general wash LESS than one capful in 3 gal of water. I use the garden hose nozzle full stream and it really lathers up, then use that foam on a mitt. Rinse as per bottle, DO NOT let it dry on the sun. Use microfiber towel to dry for a ready to seal or wax surface. Great stuff!

I only used this product once at the proper strength to prep a car for a detail. It did a great job at removing old wax and it left me with a fantastic starting point for the clay bar process. However, I found an even better use: wool wash mitt maintenance. I live in a building with water restrictions so I use Optimum No-Rinse to clean my car regularly. After each ONR task, I use 1oz (a capful) or Citrus Wash in a bucket of warm water filled to just about 2 inches above a grit guard. I then clean the wool mitt to remove the excess tar, dirt, grime and fallout that the ONR picket up and the rinse bucket doesn't remove. I was amazed at how clean the wool mitt turned out. I was even more amazed at the filthy contents of the bucket - all I could think to myself was: THAT WAS IN MY WOOL WASH MITT!!! Citrus Wash allows me to have properly maintained equipment for a professional and quality outcome. I bought a jug of the stuff because I'm going to be depending on it a lot more than I used to.
