  • Top Recommended Detailing Products

    The following data us gathered from several detailing forums asking " What is your favorite _______________". The following is not my opinion. It is real world data from professional detailers and detailing enthusiasts.

    Note #1
    Do not make unfounded/unsubstantiated claims that product xxx is better than xxx unless you have some real-world proof.
    Ex. "I conducted long-term testing of product A vs product B and found A is ______".
    Any posts made making such claims will be deleted.

    Note #2
    Products receiving less than 5% of votes were left off. There were votes for other products such as Meguiar's, NXT, 3M, but did not receive at least 5% of votes. I didn't see the need to list them all.

    =Wheel Cleaners=
    Four Star
    Griot's
    Menzerna
    P21S
    Sonus

    Treat your wheels like you treat your paint! The products are PH balanced (no acids to strip away coating) and safe for the finish on your wheels.

    =Wheel Protection=
    Wheel Wax

    =Interior=
    1Z Cockpit Premium
    303 Aerospace Protectant
    Chemical Guy's VRT
    Griot's Interior Cleaner
    Lexol Vinylex
    Meguiar's Interior Quick Detailer
    Poorboy's Natural Look
    Wolfgang VRP

    AFAIK all of the above products will leave a matte (not shiney)) finish.

    =Glass=
    Interior
    Stoner's (overwhelming)

    Exterior
    I have used Zaino on all my exterior windows, mirrors, headlights, fogs, taillights, rubber trim and non-porous plastic (except front windshield).

    After almost 6 years of on the street parking, everything looked almost brand new.

    Any synthetic wax will work just as well to repel water and help to repel dust. Use detailing spray on them, too - it really helps. Try it.

    For water spots on glass, CEGer phd2be recommends:
    One Grand
