Do Not Use This Car Wash...

Eagle One Car Wash...

This stuff is horrible. I was out washing my moms Jeep and the stuff is horrible. Wouldn't even stay sudsy.

It looked more like i was rubbing water all over the car, not sop...

my advise, dont use it. Its crap

I've used zymol and it's good. I've never tried the black magic stuff, although I use their tire foam and rim cleaning wipes... good stuff.

Take a wild guess what I've been using lately. :p
(pink stuff right?)

I don't have any problems with it. This may sound like a stupid question, but were you washing the tires/wheels at the same time as the rest of the car? Because the stuff that people, including myself put on tires (gels, armor-all, etc.) will actually neutralize the soap, thats why most people wash the tires and wheels last.

ouch, well i wash my tires and wheels last, with the armor-all wheel cleaner.

Yea, the Eagle One I used and hated was pink.

But do you have the same problem? More like you're rubbing water all over the car insted of soap? I couldnt stand it... I went in and threw the bottle away 1/2 way through the washing of the car...

I actually had that problem once or twice. Next time I just used more soap and did not have the problem. I've had that problem with lots of different car wash soaps, next time I just used more.

The Mr. Clean stuff works good but the wash and filters are kinda expensive. If you don't mind doing the drying with a towel, use the Blue Coral.

Mr. clean is well worth the price, and you dont see any towel lines or dust.

Well talking about car care, has anyone ever used blechwite (SP), i just got a bottle of that stuff and have yet to use it, but i heard it works great. And anyone with chrome rims or basically a rim that can be polished, you should try this stuff called blue magic, works wonders. My moms chromes were horrible, and nothing would take the crap off after washing, but when i used this stuff, it cleaned em up and it even adds a layer over the metal to make it resist the dirt for a longer time.
