I just don't understand why people do not just use CARWASH. It is cheap, formulated for use on paint, and works well.

FWIW, my granfather who lived through the depression would use tide to clean his wrecker. In less than five years the finish was chalky blue and had rust EVERYWHERE. Notice that this is Memphis, we don't have rust problems here.

Just go to wal-mart and buy the cheapest soap that you can find. The cheapest soap there will be better than using laundry detergent.

save the laundry detergent for clothes....plz don't use your car as a testing machine for something that no one's heard of doing before!!! Why not get Meguiars or something similar? It's only $6!!! I don't think you're that ghetto if you can afford an RSX that you have to use laundry detergent.

I hope this is a joke...anything other than a good car wash product is going to strip off wax and dull your finish.

Laundry detergent...
Why is it people are always wanting to cover their cars in laundry detergent, toothpaste, bleach, baking powder, pam cooking spray... it's just flabbergasting.
Maybe because they are trying to get maximum use out of their everyday products? You got me.

"Hmm, my car needs to be waxed, maybe if I use the peanut oil residue from the peanut butter container I have here on my shelf, I'll be able to achieve a nice gloss on m'ride." :laughing:
