First off, this product was provided to me by Meguiar’s for testing. This product is Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Wash and Wax. This product is a bit different from your typical “wash and wax” product as it has two separate chambers: one larger one with the car soap, and another with a smaller one that contains the SiO2 boost “wax”.

If you’ve ever had restored headlights before, you’ll know that after you’ve sanded and polished the headlight lens, it is imperative to applying a coating. Otherwise, the headlight lens will yellow and haze back up again within a matter of time. I recently restored a set of headlights on my car and needed a headlight coating. I purchased a spray bottle of Meguiar’s Keep Clear Headlight Coating and it did a superb job at coating my headlight lenses.

Wheels cleaners are usually pretty effective at removing the dirt and grime that is baked onto the wheels of a car. Typically, wheels are the dirtiest part of a car because it is located so close to the ground and and is constantly being bombarded with brake dust coming from the brakes. Add the fact that the wheels are always exposed to the elements and are always exposed to heat from the brakes, and you have a recipe for hard-to-clean wheels. Griot’s Garage sells this wheel cleaner called Heavy-Duty Wheel Cleaner that is acid-free and safe, yet is very effective at cleaning very dirty wheels.

If you’ve ever dealt with pet hair in your car’s interior, you’ve probably dealt with the frustration of trying to remove said pet hair from carpeting and fabric seats. There are a number of tools that are used for cleaning up pet hair, but one tool that is inexpensive and is very compact is the Lilly Brush Pet Hair Remover. This thick piece of red plastic with a perimeter of rubber helps with the collection and removal of pet hair.

If you’re looking for a car wash soap, you have a plethora of options to choose from. One of the most popular car wash soaps out there is Chemical Guys Mr. Pink Car Wash Soap. This soap is bright pink in color and smells of bubble-gum or candy-like. This sweet odor paired with its ability to foam up well makes it a great choice whether you wash your car with buckets, a foam gun, or a foam cannon.

When you clean the interior of your car, you are faced with many choices for cleaning the inside of the cabin. Griot’s Interior Cleaner comes right out of its container ready-to-use. There is no need to dilute it into any particular mixture ratio. The product is simple to use: spray it onto your microfiber towel, and wipe. I do this whenever I’m cleaning a newer or cleaner vehicle as this method helps to clean all of the surfaces of dust, but also cleans the surface gently with each wipe.

Wheel cleaners can be one of the more aggressive chemicals that we use on our cars. They are made to be strong enough to clean off the dirt, grime, and brake dust that is typically baked onto the wheel surface. However, sometimes you want something that is safe to use on your wheels, yet still be able to clean your wheels adequately. Sonax Wheel Cleaner Full Effect is an acid-free wheel cleaner that is safe to use on almost all factory-installed wheels and is a great choice for those wanting a safe, yet still effective wheel cleaner.

I’ve used Adam’s Iron Remover for almost a year now and have been pleased with the results I’ve had. I’ve used it on a number of vehicles ranging from a vehicle that has never had a chemical decontamination for more than a decade to a brand new vehicle. It does what its supposed to, which is to assist with removing ferrous (metallic) contaminants on your car’s paint.
