Your search for the best in professional car detailing products will have you bouncing between endless opinions on what works and what doesn't. From so-called experts to so-called professionals.
Naturally any car owner, driveway detailer, or soon to be professional detailer wants the insider secrets of the best in auto detailing products and supplies.
And while I could bury you with a list of detail products and supplies that would make your head spin, my goal is to provide you with a simpler approach...
"The actual products and chemicals I use in my professional mobile auto detailing business to make my picky and finicky customers coming back year after year!"
"If you were to follow the industry's lead, you would have an entire garage filled with car care products. And in the end; are you really getting more of what you want, or is the industry really getting more of what they want...your money!"
These professional car detailing products are a must have for anyone looking to simplify their auto detailing business, or any enthusiast looking for better results.
The gallon sized products might seem over-kill for an individual car owner, but most of these products are so versatile you will find endless uses for them, and they are so effective you will not mind the economical use of buying in a concentrate form.
Darren's Note: I have been accused of being a paid spokesperson for Meguiar's as I recommend so many of their products; I can assure you that I am not married to any one line of products. I simply recommend what I have either tested or use professionally myself. I don't want to be more of the problem which is over-loading you with endless reviews and choices, but merely offer these professional car detailing products that will perform at the professional level, and save you from chasing your tail buying and trying endless products just so you can get started.
Darren's Tip: I have used this polish at a professional level for over 15 years. It was not available unless you were in the body shop world. Now this Concours Level polish can be had and used by everyone! Read my review on the best car polish for a full review and see why I consider this the best of the best!
Darren's Tip: I love this all-purpose cleaner! So many uses and comes in a concentrate making it economical and allows the ability to custom blend based on strength you need. I replaced the Meguiar's all-purpose cleaner with this product as it is safer for my health and the environment. All-Purpose Cleaner
Darren's Tip: I dilute this 10:1 and use it exclusively on mild to moderate interior cleaning and shampooing. For a complete comprehensive review, you can go to Meguiar's All-Purpose Cleaner.
Darren's Tip: When the All-Purpose cleaner form above isn't strong enough for the job, I reach for the Meguiar's Super-Degreaser diluted 10:1 for the heavy lifting of interior car upholstery cleaning. For cleaning and degreasing car engines, I dilute it down 4:1. You can read the comprehensive review at Meguiar's Super-Degreaser.
Darren's Tip: Dilute 4:1 and spray on any of your car wheels for a cleaner with an amazing ability to cut through brake dust. Not intended for un-coated aluminum wheels. For the comprehensive review, see Car Wheel Cleaner
Darren's Tip: I use straight from the container and don't dilute. Suitable for both interior and exterior use. For my comprehensive review and professional tips of use, see tire cleaner and dressing.
Darren's Tips: I use this mostly on the interior of cars when I decide I want to add some additional shine to restore a materials original look. I simply spray and wipe until the desired level of shine has been accomplished. Also effective for dressing door jambs after cleaning and engine's after degreasing. For the comprehensive review, see Car interior Dressing.
This product was introduced to me by a fellow detailer. After using it a single time, I realized I had found to be what I consider the best all-in-one (AIO) car polish and sealant I have ever used.
As a professional detailer, having an all-in-one polish and sealant as part of your professional car detailing products is a must have when working on those jobs with a very tight budget. Now you can deliver the results of any demanding customer, while remaining profitable. See HD Speed review for my full review.
Darren's Tip: I use this product straight; no dilution necessary. Many beginner detailers do not understand the amazing abilities of a quality spray wax that is a non-staining formulation like this one. I use it on all my maintenance detailing and whenever I want that "just waxed" look in a fraction of the time. For the comprehensive review, you can see Meguiar's Synthetic X-press Wax.
Darren's Tip: Works best on any hard, smooth surface. But have used on virtually every type of surface from car leather or vinyl, to boat vinyl interiors, to car plastic trim pieces both on the outside and inside. For the comprehensive review, see Mr Clean Magic Eraser.
Darren's Tip: I have tried many of the retail and commercial grade tar and adhesive removers. This one has so many benefits and truly performs at a far higher level than any of the other products I have tried before and deserves a place on my "must have" list of professional car detailing products. For a comprehensive review of the product see car adhesive remover.
Darren's Tips: The 3M Adehsive Remover is a well known name brand product and many people simply want to default to name brand products they may be familiar with, if only by name. 3M has certainly been around a very long time and carries plenty of brand credibility with it. Because this is an aerosol can, it cannot be shipped via air which limits this to certain areas of the world regarding shipping.
