    AIO with best paint cleaning abilities by hand

    What would you recommend as a paint cleaner for a newer neutral color car that doesn't need much paint correction?

    So I guess what I'm asking is which AIO product has the strongest chemical cleaners?

    I've always had great results with Meguiar's Cleaner Wax... The OTC version in the maroon bottle. To this day it's one of the best chemical cleaner AIOs, with no abrasives, and I always have a bottle on my shelf.

    Just as important - make sure your applicator is clean and your wiping towels are un-contaminated.

    FWIW, I just tested the tailgate of my truck with P21s Paintwork Cleanser to see if it would remove Griot's 3 in 1. Much to my surprise, it did. I did it by hand too. I assume any other polish would do the same.

    3D Speed has given me good results by hand. Speed is such an easy product to work with either by hand or polisher.

    Since P21S GEPC doesn’t contain any
    kind of LSP (protection) ingredients,
    I don’t consider it to be an AIO.

    •Meguiar’s A12 is just one of the
    many excellent AIOs in their lineup.

    Bob, do you think the cleaning ability of something like P21s a bit higher than a regular major brand polish?

    With everything else being equal—most
    major brands’ polishes contain some sort
    of abrasives; whereas GEPC does not.

    •With that in mind (and based solely on
    that lack of abrasives in it’s formulation);
    -Then, IMO: GEPC’s paint cleaning ability
    could not be higher than polishes that do
    contain abrasives.
