Crazed Dodo Juice / change from Autoglym

So I fancy a change after using Autoglym car cleaning products since I have been driving. I now fancy a change so I have been looking at Dodo Juice products.

Im looking at Dodo Juice exterior shampoo and paint restorer.

Im also looking at Zymol.

Is there anyone on here who would be able to help me choose?? and any tips too!!

Autoglym HD Wax 4 times a year and Aquawax after each wash / final rinse. Seriously, you do not need anything else, other than some decent Clay.

I've got a Megs quick clay kit but TBH, our cars a cleaned so often build up is not an issue. I may buy some Bilt Hammer soft clay just in case. Pre-treatment prior to the wash pays dividends. Check out my top tips in the detailing section too

One last question SR if I may??

What do you use for your interior? cause I know you look after your two fab cars.

I have just got leather and aint got a clue what I need to use on it.

A damp cloth, AG leather cleaner followed by AG leather care cream. It's nice as it doesn't smell that strong. I should do the latter more often

re: Dodo Juice / change from Autoglym

People like other stuff and that's fair enough, I respect that. Over the years I've used all the regular stuff but I always come back to AG. HD wax has significantly moved things on for them and Aquawax is a miracle product IMHO and is a lot cheaper in 5 litre Express Wax. Finally, invest in some decent Gritgaurd buckets & ditch the chammy leather in favour of a decent microfiber cloth (not that diabolical, over priced Megs waffle rag though).

Re: Dodo Juice / change from Autoglym

The dodo decent stuff you need a wax after the restorer tho. Zymol is good aswell but your paying for the name. Try the victoria collection which is well priced.

Re: Dodo Juice / change from Autoglym

Don't hesitate to try new products. I know that SR is a confirmed AG-Phile and good on him, but IMHO there are lots of equally good if not better products available and it's fun to test the market.

Dodo has a great following, Meguiars DC3 Wax is one of the best value for money carnauba waxes available, Chemical Guys products like Jetseal are outstanding. My personal favourite is Carlack Acrylic Sealant (also known in the USA as Klasse AIO)

Visit the Clean your car website and check out the variety. Their products are great and their service is very good.
