    Looking for a new APC... Inteior and exterior use

    So Im almost out of Meguiars D103 and looking to see whtas new out there. I need something that can work on leather without issues but also be used on engines, wheels and if need paint. Suggestions?

    Looks like D101 has optical brighteners, but Im not into that. Just looking for a straight APC.

    What exactly do optical brightners do? Iíve gone through several gallons of D101 and never known heard of them.

    I've been using McKee's 37 Hi-Intensity All Purpose Cleaner Plus diluted 4:1. I bought 2 gallons on a BOGO and have been using it for everything on the vehicles and around the house.

    Meguiars D101 is one of the best cleaners I have used but I also like Blackfire BF-450 and even Simple Green. Diluted Simple Green is a safe, pH neutral cleaner. You may want to consider Meguiars D103 if they still make it.

    I think he means why are you worried about optical brighteners?
    I have been using it for over 5 years too and love it. Never noticed any problems. I would bet its just verbage to make it sound cool.

    So where did you see that cause I just looked at Meguiars site and dont see that.
    Meguiar's(R) D101 Detailer All Purpose Cleaner, 1 Gallon

    This is right from their MSDS, I dont know if any of these constitute a brighter

    They brighten the optics. I'm surprised that you didn't know that.

    Happy Thanksgiving Bro.
