ScrubaDub - Buyer's Guide

Don’t Get Caught Ridin’ Dirty

Jul 24, 2012

It’s summertime and time to keep our rides clean. And without getting too much into detail, we wanted to showcase our top ten car care products we use on a regular basis. These goodies are some of the best our measly incomes can afford and their available at most auto parts and department stores. They’re all easy to use that even our inexperienced Holly Lee had no problem shining up Jonathan’s EF!

1. Mothers Carnauba Wash & Wax
The basics start with a good soap. We use Mothers Carnauba Wash & Wax. It’s easy on the paint while quick to remove any dirt and grime. It also leaves an almost ‘just waxed’ finish thanks to the Carnauba.
Price: $11.79 (64 oz)
Contact: mothers.com

2. Mothers Lambswool Wash Mitt
The Mothers mitt is made of thick quality wool that’ll last plenty of washes and also features a great design to keep it from sliding off your hand.
Price: $8.99
Contact: mothers.com

3. Sanctiond Car Wash
Another option is the stuff from Sanctiond. It’s a new soap that’ll give you a great hi-suds wash that’s also safe on all paints and smells yummy.
Price: $8.99 (48 oz)
Contact: sanctiond.com

4. Mothers Microfiber Towels
Multi-purpose, these microfibers work like a charm whether you’re polishing or drying the car as Holly demonstrates. Made of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide, it’s safe on virtually any surface.
Price: $25 (12-pack)

5. Mothers Clay Bar System
When it comes to getting rid of debris, tree sap and small scratches, a clay bar is an easy solution you can do at home. Mothers offers one of the best we’ve tried. It’s dependable and gets the car ready for a fresh coat of wax.
Price: $23.99
Contact: mothers.com

6. Mothers Synthetic Wax
When it comes to wax, there are literally hundreds of options. This synthetic wax isn’t anything fancy but it’s reasonably priced and provides the shine and protection we need. It’s easy to apply and wipe off. But don’t waste it like Holly…
Price: $8.99
Contact: mothers.com

7. Mothers Applicator Pads
(not pictured)
Instead of excessively squirting your wax supply, put some on a microfiber applicator for even distribution. It’ll also prevent scratching the paint.
Price: $2.49 (2-pack)
Contact: mothers.com

8. Eagle One EnviroShine Glass Cleaner
Keepin’ the glass clean is elementary and the Eagle One stuff doesn’t leave streaks. It’s also safe on tinted windows, mirrors and vinyl.
Price: $3.99
Contact: eagleone.com

9. Mothers Glass Cleaner
(not pictured)
If you’re looking for another option, the Mothers glass cleaner is equally grand.
Price: $4.39
Contact: mothers.com

10. Sanctiond Spray Detailer
In between car washes, you might need to touch up on some dust or handprints (ahem, Holly). A quick detailer product is something handy to keep in the car or garage like this new Sanctiond product. Mist on, wipe off and you’re clean again!
Price: $9.99
Contact: sanctiond.com
