Cool Fav Chem Guys Products

Honeydew Snow Foam Cleanser - works great - quickly cleans your car with minimal work and without touching car.

Wet Mirror Finish Gloss Magnifier - this stuff does exactly what it says, and has UV protectant in it.

Signature Series Glass Cleaner - cleans very well, impressed, leaves a nice gloss.

Miracle Dryer Absorber Premium Microfiber Towel - makes drying car way more efficient.

for quick waxing - Lucas Oil LUC10160 Blue 24 Ounce Slick Mist Speed Wax - works very well!

What products from Chem Guys have found work best?

I don’t think I’ve used a bad product from them.

Jetseal has to be one of my favourites though.

I like their leather cleaner (colorless/odorless), but I actually prefer Optimum and CarPro generally.

I don't recommend their decon spray. Iron X and Sonax Wheel cleaner work way better.

Butter Wet Wax. I used to use it on my other car, but haven't used it since coating my car with CQuartz.

I've used about half of the products already mentioned. All good, nothing more to add.

Except the leather scent. Once the leather (read: vinyl) smell fades, Chemical Guys Leather Scent Premium Air Freshener & Odor Eliminator is great to spray on the floor mats. Some may not like the scent but I do. Closest leather scent I've found. The scent is absolutely identical to Zaino Z-10 leather-in-a-bottle.

Not Chemical Guys, but I just ordered a gallon of Bead Maker. Excited to give it a try. I've been really happy with Sonax Spray and Seal but this should be a step up.

Hope you enjoy it. For $10 it's a great buy and a ton easier than applying Zaino and then buffing it out...

Yeah I like it quite a bit - also works wonders on the plastic trim on my X5.

so the leather spray is no joke - it eliminates all odors and leaves a new shoe/leather smell. i like it - this big bottle will last 10 yrs though

The honey dew snow foam is one of my favorites. Their wheel cleaner is good too. Just received their leather care kit with cleaner, conditioner, leather air freshener, and their brown microfiber towels and applicators and will be testing those out today. Their glass cleaner is ok. I don't know who is making the Genuine BMW glass cleaner, but that is by far my favorite.
