The Best Pressure Washer Car Shampoo’s and Snow Foams Buying guide and FAQ

 

What shouldn’t you use to clean your car?

You should never use washing up dish soap to clean your car with. It can strip wax protection, promote oxidation and could wear other parts of your prematurely.

 

Can I use any car shampoo in a pressure washer?

Pretty much any car shampoo can be used in a pressure washer. We have never come across one that you can’t use in one.

What you shouldn’t use in a pressure washer to clean a car though is washing up liquid. Dish soap can stop the wax and wear the paintwork as well as other parts of the car and ruin the aesthetic.

 

What is the best pressure washer soap for cars?

In our opinion, the best pressure washer soap for cars is the Autoglym Polar Wash. Quite possibly the best all-around option and with all the other backup options available from Autoglym, there is a specialist product for everything.

Although it is on the pricier side of things, we do think it warrants the extra money and well worth the investment.

 

Can I use Meguiars wash and wax in a pressure washer?

We actually have the Meguiarts wash and wax included in our list and all of the products on our list can be used in a pressure washer. So, yes, Meguiars wash and wax can be used in a pressure washer.
