Cleaning equipment.

I got a list of few things to get to clean and maintain my car by a local detailer, did research on some of the product, and all seem to have great reviews, figured i'd share this info with you guys in case someone didnt know what to purchase.

- Meguiars Microfiber Wash Mitt X3002. Get 2 of them
- 16 Spoke Wheel Brush
- Duragloss #471 BR (Bug Remover) w/sprayer
- CarPro PERL Coat Plastic & Rubber Protectant (GREAT REVIEWS)
- Chemical Guys Honeydew Snow Foam 1gal
- Zep Commercial Foaming Glass Cleaner- 540 ml
- Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner
- 3 buckets & 3 Grit Guard Bucket Insert
- Uber Super Drying Microfiber Towel (http://www.detailersdomain.com/Uber-...wel_p_516.html)

I was looking for a foam gun, so i got the following 2 pieces
- Gilmour Brass Connector High Flow Shut-off Valve
- Gilmour Foamaster II Foam Gun

Hopefully this helps some of you.
whoever have used any of these products let me know how they turned out for you, i'll be putting them all to use very soon hopefully.

I used gilmour foam master II with dodo juice shampoo. I am sure you can get more suds with the shampoo you posted. Its a great tool especially if your hose has good pressure.

I would recommend sonax full effect wheel cleaner or p21s wheel cleaner.
