You probably spend a considerable amount of time, energy and money on shampoo to keep your hair conditioned and looking sleek. Your car also deserves the same level of love and treatment.

The best part is there’s a product for it too. In addition to keeping it clean and neat, car shampoo comes with many benefits for your vehicle.

There are various types of car wash liquid on the market today — each one with unique cleaning mechanisms and functions. However, car shampoo is known for its relative ease of use and high efficiency.

Car wash shampoo cracks down on any form of basic dirt that accumulates on your car. The solution also works against grease and oil stains. Car foam shampoo provides a slippery surface that makes it difficult for dirt to stay on.

Check out our collection of car shampoo and snow foam products for vehicles.

What is in a Car Shampoo?

From the science angle, car shampoo contains surfactants. These are molecules within the chemical makeup of the car wash detergent, and they’re responsible for eliminating grime and dirt.

Once you apply car wash shampoo to a surface, the substance engulfs the dirt and keeps it in a state of suspension. Hence, it becomes easy to rinse off the dirt with water.

The molecular structure of car foam shampoo is hydrophilic, which means it loves water and actively seeks out dirt particles. Car shampoo is usually concentrated and often requires a minimal application to become effective. Due to its hydrophilic properties, it easily lathers once it gets in contact with water.

Car Shampoo in Action

The fluids of the car wash liquid become more effective when applied with a significant amount of force from the user. For the best results, use a sponge or mitt to spread the shampoo all over the vehicle.

The mechanical force is necessary to get at harder and drier splotches of dirt that have caked up on your vehicle’s surface. The scrubbing action of your sponge adds friction and combines with the chemical action of the car shampoo to loosen dried up dirt.

On the chemical front, car soap and shampoos with a neutral pH like ours are the ideal choices for washing the surface of your car. A car wash detergent with a higher pH veering towards the alkaline may degrade your vehicle’s wax polish.

We only offer car shampoos and alloy wheel cleaners that are gentle on the integrity of your vehicle’s sheen. Look through our collection today!

Benefits of Car Shampoo

Alternative car wash products like traffic film removers are useful for cleaning your car. However, the biggest advantage of car shampoos is their ease of application.

You simply need a bottle of your trusty car shampoo from us, a bucket of water and a soft sponge. With these simple items, you’re good to start cleaning your car.

But wait, there’s more.

Car soap can complement the effects of car shampoo. This combination can adequately mimic the properties of quality car detailing products without the extra cost.

Car shampoo can also work as a caravan cleaners for larger vehicles like buses or trucks.

However, car shampoo may have a certain drawback as it may not be the ideal choice for car interior cleaning. The shampoo is effective as a screen wash but may need special caution when dealing with delicate and tiny corners within the vehicle.

Regardless, car shampoos are the easiest and cheapest product for cleaning your car. It doesn’t matter the coating of your car’s exterior; whether it’s vinyl, metal or ceramic coating car, shampoos are capable of removing any dirt or grime.
