I purchased Maxi Suds II along with the Detailed Image MTM Hydo Foam Lance. Initially, I used the Meguiars NXT car wash (about 3 oz) that was sitting on my shelf with the foam lance and was very disappointed. This is a great soap when used in a bucket method, but it hardly created any suds through the foam lance. However, when I used Maxi Suds II (about 2.5 oz) with the foam lance, this combo provided very good foaming that stayed on the car for a few minutes. The difference in foaming was day and night. Both of these combo's were utilizing a medium-duty electric pressure washer using normal city water.

Maxi Suds II works very well in foam cannon leaving vehicle covered in a thick clinging foam. After allowing to dwell then wiping down with wash mitt and rinsing off, product left vehicle clean with a high gloss. Product smells good and as mentioned a little goes a long way.

Works great as my simple bucket wash soap. Foams up a bit better than Megs Gold Class soap. Otherwise, these two soaps are similar in performance but the CG soap gets the nod for sudsing.

Got this for free! This is my 2nd bottle! I love how it smells. Does a good job cleaning. You really have to wash this stuff off or it leaves a dried residue behind which can be a PIA to get off. But other than that, pretty good.

Tried to use it in a foam cannon for a quick wash, foam is great but doesn't have the ability to cut through the grime like Citrus Wash does. Best use is in a normal wash situation.

For bucket washes, I used Poorboys Concentrated Suds, but when I purchased the foam cannon, I had heard nothing but great reviews of Maxi Suds II. I pulled the trigger and bought it. It is worth the money, for sure. I did two full size trucks with about two capfuls. Even though my water is very hard (geography of the area), the suds were thick, rich, and smooth.

Well named! This is yet another great product from Chemical Guys. I love this wash and found the reviews are true. The suds are great as the name implies. It also has a great smell which is not normally something that matters to me but I found myself coming back to this when I was needing more soap because I like the smell and suds.

I use this in a Gilmour Foam Sprayer. I've used this and also Honeydew Snow Foam. I can't really tell which one makes more foam. They are both great! Maxi-suds makes great foam, feels really slippery and leaves behind a great shine. Other reviewers have mixed Maxi-suds with Honeydew Snow Foam and report good results. Maxi-Suds smelly a bit like wild cherry to me. Maybe my next carwash day will be a fruit salad.

I am always experimenting with car soaps and I wont be looking any further... Absolutely amazing! Just like the name it is sudsy and creates a smooth surface. My daughter and I love the smell as well. Whats got me hooked is the glossy look it gives after dried! No cons on this product, just another great CG product!

Awesome soap that suds like crazy and smells great. It is my preferred soap for prewashing the car with the foam lance and power washer and feels like it leaves a slick barrier in between my paint and the wash mitt.

I was skeptical whether Maxi Suds could be better than off-the-shelf car wash. Well I found out quickly the suds are much better and result in much less spotting. I will buy this product again.

This stuff works great. As it's name implies be ready for suds! just under a cap full is all you need. When your soap bucket gets low on suds just spray more water in and poof, more suds!

Wow, I never expected such a difference when I switched to Maxi Suds II, but this product really impressed me. This has plenty of suds that last throughout the wash process and carry the dirt right off the car much more easily than other shampoos I have tried. The 128oz option also makes it an economical price for a quality product!

My car looked great even without waxing. The cherry scent sounded dumb but it turned out to be a nice touch..

Filled the canister of my foam sprayer with water as suggested and used about 1 oz of Maxi Suds into that. Along with a Spotless CR system and the foam sprayer in the middle (3) setting there were a lot of suds. Very slippery product. Smells like Amoxicillin antibiotic suspension for kids to me -- not sure yet if that is a good thing or not, but if I want to get that smell out of my nose, I guess I can always take a sniff of the Dodo Juice Lime Lite I bought a few weeks ago :)

Best car foam/shampoo I've ever used. Foams up great. Smells terrific which is a plus since I have a heated garage and can wash inside when the weather is cold. Very mild... lubricates the car great but never leaves spots or strips wax or polishes off. Buy the big bucket if you wash your car regularly!

WOW! I've used many, MANY different types of soaps, with mixed results. Usually ending up in water spots that I have to detail away and rub sort of tough (towards the end of a wax job's cycle especially.) I used this stuff for the first time before waxing my truck for winter. The temp was 62* and it was partially sunny. This stuff worked amazing! VERY few water spots that were removed via my detailer before waxing. I was quite impressed at how well this stuff worked. I will only be buying this soap unless something comes along and beats it. Suds were great!

Great product! I've used this a couple times now on my car and my wife's. I use it together with the Gilmour Foam Master II gun. It's great. Even highly diluted it does a great job cleaning the car and won't strip off the sealant (wax or whatever you use.) Very happy with this product.

I use Chemical Guys Maxi Suds in my foam cannon. It does what the name implies, loads and loads of suds. I recommend adding the water to your cannister first, and then adding the shampoo. Seal it up an mix it into a solution. If you put in the soap and then add the water, you get a cannister full of foam, which won't last long at all in a foam cannon. A good shampoo, but unless I want to play with the foam cannon I prefer the Dodo Juice Born to be Mild because I think it cleans a little better.

Used this product the day that I got it, I just wish that I had gotten the 128 oz version because this stuff is so good. It was an easy to use soap just use a couple of ounces in your five gallon bucket and you should be good to go. Bellow are a few pros and cons that I saw.

Pros: Smell, Lubricity, pH Neutral, decent cleaning ability, great for use in a foam cannon

Cons: Price

Blown away by the amount of suds. I have CG citrus gloss which I thought was sudsy, but didn't really like using because of how much it hurt the protection layers. Oh and that smell is to die for, I wish it was edible. Not to mention its so thick and super concentrated that I imagine at my usage levels will last me 2-3 years.

Terrific stuff. Lives up to its name in terms of suds, but also offers great lubricity. Works very well in the foam gun as well as the bucket. This was an impulse buy as I had trouble finding my old Duragloss go-to. No regrets, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

I thought claims regarding lubricity were just marketing fodder, but I can honestly say that I can feel the difference (for the better) compared to the retail Meg's bottle I was waiting to deplete. Would def. buy again. Good size/price is a bonus.

Apparently I'm the only one who's not completely happy with this product. I really like most of the CG stuff " it can't be beat in terms of bang for your buck. But Maxi Suds produces minimal suds. It's good in terms up slickness, but I prefer the CG CW&G for a high sudsing shampoo.

I like it as a maintenance wash. I don't have to worry about it being too concentrated like the citrus washes. It suds up great and is very slick. My only complaint is that it leaves a bit of a film on glass.

true to its name, the suds just keep coming even toward the end of my wash. think I can use less and get the same results. suds are very thick. not quite as slick as PBW Slick & Suds, but a great value in 128oz. size. would slot this somewhere between Slick & Suds and Gold Class. great product.

Maxi Suds is very impressive. As name suggests, a little of this soap creates a lot of soap suds that last the duration of the hand wash. I've experienced other quality soaps that lose their suds towards the end of the wash process. Not the case with this product. Highly recommended.
