Washing is the job we tackle most often when smartening up our cars, but picking the right car wash solution is tricky.
With enough water, just about any formula will shift dirt - so we concentrated on finding the one that made the job the easiest.
For our test, we looked at those that dried the panel best, leaving less water to take off with a leather or drying towel.
We also kept a close eye on costs - although prices can appear similar, there are often large differences in the amount you get through per wash.
We used each product on a car, then assessed how each dried the panel.
