    Can someone recommend a strong car wash soap or spray that is really good at removing grease, dirt, grime and all other contaminants?

    I've used some armor all cleaning wipes and spray cleaner, but I don't want to continue using it since I don't believe its designed for painted surfaces.

    Thanks

    If you have a pressure washer everyone seems to believe that investing in a Foam Canon attachment is one of the best things to help remove all the garbage. From there, I have heard that plain ole Simple Green is great for getting everything off. I have not yet tried it though.

    Dawn will strip almost all grease and waxes. I wouldn't use as a regular maintenance wash. I use chemical guys citrus wash. If u have stubborn grease and brake dust etc in paint finish I would use Car pro Iron x followed by a good clay to pull all the junk out of paint then a wax of your choice.

    X2 on Dawn...not for regular use. I use Zaion Bros. show car polish products and they instruct you to strip all old wax, grease, grime, etc with Dawn as well. They have the same caveat about not using Dawn for an every day car wash too.
