    Looking for a carwash soap that DOESN'T have wax in it, sell me on YOUR favorite!

    Sooooo, now that I have this Worx Powershot power washer I see myself doing more "traditional" carwashes but need my fellow geeks to suggest a great carwash soap for me. You see, I've been doing RW and WW's since joining AG only, mixing in quarter carwash trips and touch-free's along the way but 90% RW/WW's.

    I have some criteria:

    1. NO wax in it, my car is coated

    2. quality product, this goes without saying

    3. you REALLY know and use the product

    Ok carwash soap enthusists, have at it and THANKS inadvance!

    I like Optimum's car wash and Meguiar's Hyperwash. I use both and they clean well and are economical. No wax added in either. Both smell good, Optimum has a berry scent. HW has a good soap smell. I honestly don't know if I could tell the difference if you took away the scent. If I had to choose one car soap I would choose HW based on it being so economical.

    I read good things about Carpro Reset, but have never used Reset, nor have I had coated car.

    For me its Meguiars Hyper-Wash is a concetrated car wash for frequent or professional detailing. Super foaming, long lasting car shampoo from Meguiars. used up gallon now on the second one..but once this runs out might use different soap..since PH neutral soap cant remove traffic film effectively..will change my approach to how i wash my cars..

    I'm not into traditional wash soaps but it seems like the ones that get the most love are Reset, Optimum, and Hyper-Wash

    Meguiar's Hyperwash
    CarPro Reset
    McKee's 37 Xtreme Foam
    Rupes M101 if you are looking for something that doesn't have a lot of suds
    Optimum actually has a little bit of polymers in it but it works well and won't mess up your coating

    Thank you everyone, looks like a couple are popping up across the board. Is the Meg's OTC?
