Fellow Detailers, What Is Your Favorite Product For.........

Just gathering some information from you fellow detailers (both professional and amateur) and am looking to find out what your favorite product is for the following:

Car Soap:

Claybar:

Polish (light cutting):

Polish (medium cutting):

Polish (heavy cutting):

Glaze:

Sealant:

Wax:

Tire Dressing:

Wheel Sealant:

Interior Protectant:

Leather Care:

Quick Detailer:





I realize that your product of choice may vary from situation to situation and will also depend on what color of vehicle you are detailing, however just your overall favorite product for the category is fine. Just cut and paste the above into your post and fill in your favorite product. Thanks.

Car Soap: Chemical Guys Citrus Wash and Gloss with P21S Total Auto Wash Presoak

Claybar: Clay Magic - they're all great!

Polish (light cutting): Menzerna 106FF

Polish (medium cutting): Menzerna Super Intense Polish

Polish (heavy cutting): I have not tried any yet but I'm going to try Meguiar's M105 first then compare to Menzerna Power Gloss when I get a chance

Glaze: If you can polish, what's the point in glaze?

Sealant: Jetseal 109

Wax: I don't have much experience with this, but I've seen such great Swissvax jobs that I'm going with Swissvax Consoro.

Tire Dressing: Optinum makes a good one

Wheel Sealant: Jetseal 109 works great on wheels too

Interior Protectant: don't do interior detailing but 303 would be my first choice

Leather Care: no idea

Quick Detailer: Clear Kote Quik Shine is my top choice at the moment but that may change with Finish Kare #425 getting such a great rep

I just started getting into detailing. I haven't done all the stuff on your list. Here is what I've used so far:

Sealant: Wolfgang deep gloss 3.0

Wax: Pinnicle souveran liquid

Interior: 303

Leather: Lexol

Tire dressing: Black magic

Clear bra cleaner/wax: Plexus

Use Lake county pads w/PC, Prefer foam applicators over MF applicators

Great idea Garnett...I get so stuck in what I use, that I have a lot of trouble trying to pick new products to try. This should help...and make sure you put your choices on here too.

Soap: Mostly Megs...but not picky here. Use mostly OTC stuff.

Claybar: I don't notice the difference between any of the quality ones. Use mostly Megs because its OTC and easy to find.

Polish (light cutting): 106ff

Polish (medium cutting): SIP

Polish (heavy cutting): haven't gone there yet.

Glaze: not sold on glaze yet...tried it and just seemed like too much work for the bang.

Sealant: Zaino Z2

Wax: P21s

Tire Dressing: Zaino Perfect Tire Gloss

Wheel Sealant: Wheelwax

Interior Protectant: 303. Recently tried PBs Natural Look though, and I really like it.

Leather Care: 303

Quick Detailer: Z6 has always been my favorite...but leaning hard toward FK425 lately.

^ Thanks. The reason I wanted to start a thread like this is that I have my own detailing business and am always looking to try new products. I just wanted to gather some information and see what other detailer's favorite products are. As for me, the best products for each category that I have used so far are the following:


Car Soap: Poorboys Super Slick & Suds

Claybar: Clay Magic (fine grade)

Polish (light cutting): Menzerna P0106FF

Polish (medium cutting): Menzerna SIP

Polish (heavy cutting): Menzerna Power Gloss

Glaze: Don't use it, but have ordered Menzerna's Finishing Touch

Sealant: Menzerna FMJ

Wax: Poorboys Natty's Blue

Tire Dressing: Poorboys Bold N Bright

Wheel Sealant: Poorboys Wheel Sealant

Interior Protectant: Aerospace 303

Leather Care: Lexol leather cleaner/Zaino Z10

Quick Detailer: Zaino Z6


I have Poorboys entire SSR lineup of polishes as well which I find are very good, but I think Menzerna's are a step above. Another product worth mentioning that I really like is Optimum Car Wax. It's a spray carnuba that is quick and easy to use and also gives you great added depth and gloss.

If this takes off I would say this would be a GREAT sticky. I unfortunately have not really detailed a car(only wash/dry ha) so I can not contribute. But I would LOVE to learn how. This seems like a good start for knowing products. Thanks!
