Product Description

The Chemical Guys Citrus Wash and Clear is one of the safest products you can use to strip off the protection (i.e. sealant, wax) from your paint. When used in the concentrated form (2oz per gallon of water) it is a paintwork cleanser that helps clean and prep your paint so you can get the most out of your detail. This process is essential for best results before beginning a full detail. You can further dilute (.5 ounces per gallon of water) the Citrus Wash and Clear so it will not strip off the protection. Without a product like this in your detailing arsenal you are left with limited options to remove old wax and sealant like polishing, washing with harsh soaps, etc. The citrus cleaning agents help safely clean the surface without the risk of drying out the trim or other wise potentially harming the paint. This versatile auto shampoo is a must have for any automotive detailer!

Buy any Chemical Guys product from now until the end of 2014 and you will be automatically entered to win a Limited Edition Project J97 Paste Wax valued at $850! The more Chemical Guys products you order the better chance you have of winning! For more information on this contest click here.

Professional Detailer Reviews

I find CG CWC to be extremely versatile, and quite effective weather you're performing a daily wash or prepping the paint for polishing. It's great to have one product that will cover so many needs, and because it's so highly concentrated, you get a lot of value as well.

Directions

USE ME:

Extremely concentrated and highly versatile 1/2 oz mixes with 2 gallons of water for a superior wash. As a paintwork cleanser dilute 2oz with 1 gallon water for superior surface cleaner to remove built up grime and leftover wax. Always wash vehicle when the surface is cool. Rinse the vehicle with water to remove loose grit and surface dirt. Start washing from the top down and rinse the car often. Frequent rinsing is important if you are washing on a warm day. Do not allow the soapy water to dry on your paint. Use a final rinse of free-flowing water (nozzle off the hose) allowing the water to sheet.

Great all around soap. I used it to strip wax off a Hyundai Santa Fe with no problems. Just dilute it properly. The lubricity is crazy, I felt like my mitt was gliding over nothing at all. Be warned though: DO NOT let it dry on the paint or glass. Creates spots like crazy. Other than that, it's a great bargain at an even better price.

Let's put it this way.. if you plan on stripping ALL of your wax off your car and polishing or putting new wax on, this is the stuff to get. I bought this product because I was planning on detailing my car with my new DA Polisher. I used this stuff for the first time as prep for a polish. I put 1-2oz in the bucket, filled it up with water, and washed my car with a Microfiber Sponge. Once I dried my car, my car was squeaky clean. It did not have the smooth feeling like you would normally feel having wax on it. It was straight up clean. Any bugs on the front of the car were melted off. My car was shiny just using only this. I then grabbed a clay bar. I wasn't pulling hardly anything off my car onto the clay. Using this product alone on your car wash would eliminate the clay step if you plan on claying your car. My car was that clean. This stuff really suds up pretty well in the bucket. I let the suds sit on the car for a few minutes before cleaning off the car. I then followed up with a polish which made my car pop. I followed up with wax...let me say...5 hours of detailing was well worth it. This is a great product to wash your car with IF you plan on following up with a wax or sealant. If you do not plan on waxing your car during your wash...do NOT use this product. Since I wax my car almost every time I wash my car, I may use this every other wash to make sure my car has new wax at all times. I will be buying more in the future when I run out of this.

This is my second bottle. Mix it strong and it'll strip old warn wax, use it diluted it melts splattered bugs. May want to consider rubber gloves if using strong ratio.
