    I just tried the duragloss wash with some aquawax added to it and I was really impressed. My other wash is the DP extreme foam for my foam gun but it is also great in the bucket.

    It seems like I've got a bunch of them but I grab the Duragloss most often.

    Nothing wrong with the Gold Class. I'd use it up first.

    I use Gold Class when not using ONR.It works nice in a foam gun and its fairly cheap OTC.

    I've been thinking of this too. What are the notable differences between the different types of car wash soaps? I've always been under the impression that "Car Wash Soap is Car Wash Soap". I know some washes have wax infused, but outside of that, or using a 'detergent', the results would pretty much be the same.

    Re: car wash soap

    Just about any will clean, but the difference is how the formula treats the finish. Premium "Ph balanced" detergents generally indicates that it will clean without totally stripping the wax layer that presumably was on it before washing. If desired that is done with a dedicated product such as Cleansing Lotion. The other variables are largely preference e.g. lubricity, sudsing, dual performance in gun or by hand, perceived value, et cetera. Look forward to trying something besides Pinnacle, myself, maybe Wolfgang Auto Bathe.

    Nothing wrong with Gold Class either a solid performer. I just get great results with Optimums car soap and it's great for me in every category I was looking for.
