Here's a little run-down of the CG stuff I currently have in the garage. As you can see from the pic below, I haven't used some of it. The products I have used are the Citrus Wash & Gloss, Honeydew Snow Foam, and Synthetic Quick Detailer. The others are still awaiting their turn.
L to R: Luber (clay lube), greenCLEAN (total surface cleaner, 1:16 dilution), P40-Detailer (Carnuba-based quick detail spray + waterless carwash), Lightning Fast Stain Extractor (for extracting stains!, 1:20 dilution), Citrus Wash & Gloss (amazing hyper wash, 1 oz: 5 gallons), Honeydew Snow Foam (best foam out there, 1/2 oz: 2 gallons), NONSENSE (upholstery/carpet stain remover, 20:1 dilution), Synthetic Quick Detailer (quick detailer & clay lube), and CG-Speed Wipe (spray wax & quick detailer)
Citrus Wash & Gloss is one of my favourites. It is a potent detergent and its finish is glossy, as the name would suggest. I have used it for years.
The Honeydew Snow Foam is one of two foams I have used, and it has always impressed me. It works well in each of my foam guns. I now buy it by the gallon.
The Synthetic Quick Detailer is a decent detail spray. I have to admit I enjoy the bubble gum scent of it. I use a variety of different detail sprays from a variety of manufacturers, and I probably won't order a replacement bottle when this one's done. I'll stick with my Griot's Garage Speed Shine for light spray details, and my Griot's Garage Spray-On Car Wash for the dirtier occasions.
I have yet to use the Speed Wipe, Luber, and P40. And, that's the thing with Chemical Guys, they produce such a vast array of products that you inevitably end up with more than one product that do the same job. I wish they had a more cohesive logic to their line up.
As for the other products, I am going to make more of an effort to get them into the rotation. My car doesn't ever get to the point where I need a product like the Stain Extractor, NONSENSE, or greenCLEAN, but I have a plan to do some details for friends in the Spring, so that should give me a chance to put them to the test.
