We utilize this product as our only car wash soap here at a high volume collision repair facility. It works perfectly for us with loads of suds and great cleaning ability. Most importantly, it is perfect in that it really lubricates the wash mitt allowing us to clean newly painted surfaces without worrying about the dreaded swirl marks.

    Good soap although suds dissipate pretty quickly once applied to car. Smells good and doesn't streak; the price can't be beat.

                This stuff is cheap, does a good job, and goes a long way when properly mixed. It does not strip my wax. I've been using it for years as it's the best bang for the buck you'll find.

                    Great value for the price. Will get many uses out of it. Add to warm/hot water and mix well. It becomes very foamy and leaves a pleasent scent and doesn't feel gross like most washes. Rinses right off leaving no streaking. Probably won't be buying again any time soon due to the sheer amount of product you get!

                        We've been using Turtle Wax products for years on our vehicles - wash and wax products. Never had any problems with not washing off like other carwash products and our vehicles look great. I generally go through about 4 big containers a year because I have a 26' horse trailer, a big Ford Dually and two other cars I keep clean.

                              Upon checking with the manufacturer of Turtlewax Car Wash (1 Gallon) with Part No. T141 they assured that this part does not incur any problem with black color cars. As an additional information they also recommended the Turtlewax Color Magic Black Car Polish (16 oz.) with Part No. T374KT for a much better finish.

                              Yes it will be fine. Make sure you wash the soap injector section well by running clean water after running the soap through.
