    Chemical guys cleaner questions???

    I've been using meguiar's apc and super degreaser and while they work, I was looking into some chemical guys cleaners such as nonsense(for no color or odor). But in general, not specific to nonsense, how do their cleaners compare to each other in terms of strength and being able to use on all surfaces. For example what compared equally or better to the Meg's I've been using but just as safe when thinking apc on ALL surfaces? And then what is the difference between grime reaper and signature series degreaser? All clean vs nonsense? Signature series vs glassworks?
    Help?!?

    At least with their dressings they have a chart explaining them all.

    I like nonsense for interiors and carpets. All clean + I like for exteriors, but Adam's APC is stronger IMO for tires and rubber.

    So could nonsense be a replacement for Meg's apc? Safe on leather? As effective on stains/spills? CG just has so many options. Seems as though they could make a chart to explain them all.

    It's safe, but I only use leather cleaners only leather.

    True. But meant more of overspray hitting the leather. Thanks for your input anyone else?
    And how about their various degreasers?

    If you can figure out all the CG cleaners based on the website, you should receive a Nobel prize in detailing chemistry.

    In reality, several are probably nearly identical, using different ratios of the same active ingredients. Ones that are actually different probably vary by substituting one of the following chemicals for the other: sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, sodium metasilicate, sodium tripolyphosphate, citrus terpenes or a combination of them.

    Has their customer service gotten any better seems all reviews from 2-3 years ago said CS was basically non existent.

    If you count the time recently that Greg made a very inappropriate comment about a YouTube poster's mom......pretty bad.

    I recently purchased the CG Nonsense. I have two dilutions: 20:1 and 10:1. I've used the 20:1 on multiple occasions for interior cleaning and really like it. It isn't COMPLETELY odorless. It has a slight odor, but it isn't offensive and it is only when sprayed. Once it is wiped, the smell is gone.

    I'll be trying the 10:1 hopefully this weekend while cleaning an engine compartment. I suspect it will work well.
