Place your hose to get affordable use with cleaning helpers you have on hands or that you could find in the dollar store. No requirement for spending hrs buffing and shining. There exists a trick to make it seem like you simply drove them back the dealer’s lot. And when you haven’t attempted washing your vehicle before (we have had the experience!), take a look at tips and methods for any really sweet ride.

What You Will Need:

  • Large bucket
  • Vehicle wash mitt or microfiber cloth
  • Dish soap
  • Hair conditioner
  • Dry hands towel


  1. Move your vehicle to some shaded area and provide it a great dousing water. Washing your vehicle under the sun may cause streaks in the cleaners drying within the hot sun. Fill the bucket with water, and give a teaspoon of dish soap. You do not need a lot of soap, and also the bit helps split up gunk and dirt while being gentle in your splash of paint.
  2. Use the sudsy water for your vehicle with lengthy strokes, moving horizontally utilizing a vehicle wash mitt or microfiber cloth. Avoid your circular motion, which could cause swirl marks in your beloved vehicle. Dunk the mitt within the bucket frequently to get rid of dirt. And if you discover the soap and water gets really dirty, then dump it, and begin fresh with a brand new bucket.

  1. Once one for reds of the vehicle is sudsy, provide a rinse, which will keep the soap and water from located on your vehicle and drying — leading to getting to clean the vehicle once again. Continue washing in sections before the vehicle is totally clean.
  2. Now dump the soap and water, and rinse the bucket with water, making certain there is not any dirt or sand towards the bottom from the container. Fill the bucket with two glasses of water, and blend with 1/2 cup hair conditioner, which you’ll get in the dollar store. Make use of a clean microfiber cloth to smooth over your vehicle. We left one for reds in our vehicle untreated to find out if using conditioner made a positive change.

  1. After since the entire vehicle using the conditioner water, hose lower your vehicle, and relish the shine! Finish by drying having a clean hands towel, as well as your vehicle is going to be like new. Our unconditioned side remained alone to air dry, leading to visible water marks. Yay for conditioner!

How to use Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner


Gjp 85: this and maguires the best 2 shampoos out the only 2 I ever use. u pay for what u get

David Moran: Always very disappointed with this product unfortunately, got a bottle in a gift kit at Christmas, I love autoglym products, The aqua wax is amazing btw, but I just can't seem to get to grips with this. I've been using Meguires wash and wax for years and keep trying to go move over to the AG Shampoo and Conditioner every few months thinking it'll be different to the last time I used it but it's always disappointing. Put 2 cap fulls with 10L of water as directed on the bottle but it just doesn't seem to work, can't see any soap on the car when washing at all, just feels like I'm washing it with plain water and the mitt just doesn't seem to glide over the surface anywhere near as good as other shampoo's, don't get me wrong the car always comes up relatively clean but the experience of using it just isn't nice if you know what I mean. \n\nIf autoglym could give the product a more soapy appearance with lots of bubbles and a more "slimey/slippy texture I think it would completely transform the product imo \n\n

AutoglymUK: Hi, this product is low foaming on purpose. It was formulated that way, so it will never foam up a lot during use. This is to make rinsing off easy. As you noted the shampoo cleans really well, but without a lot of foam. If you are looking for a more foamy shampoo, check out Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo. This is a high foaming shampoo by design.

Krystyna Antys: I've washed my car with Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner twice now but once the car is dried (I give it a good rinse with my water pipe) white spots/circles appear all over it. Its really hard to get them off when polishing the car.. what am I doing wrong?!

AutoglymUK: Have you dried the car with a drying towel after rinsing with water? If there are any water droplets on the car that are allowed to dry, these can leave white spots of circles. Another thing to pay attention to is the dilution, make sure that is correct to enable the shampoo to rinse away well.

eddy brown: U used this shampoo today witg a microfibre mit and was disappointed… Looks clean but feels grimy… Im gona invest in ag tar remover befor next clean… Should i us the sponge provided in my ag kit instead of the mit u hear stories tht sponges are hard on paint work

AutoglymUK: +eddy brown Hi Eddy, if the car still feels rough after washing, it sounds like you could do with some clay. The roughness you can feel is often bonded contamination that can't be washed away, but will need to be removed with detailing clay. Check out this video for details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40DWr9c6l9k

eddy brown: +AutoglymUK thanks. I will try the sponge and ur tar remover this weekend. I kinda half arsed tho job tbh gona dedicate a good few hours this weekend ��

Asterio: I put 3 cap worth of Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner into a 5 liter bucket, given it a good stir, all the green shampoo conditioner just disappears… I hardly got any bubble… why is it???

AutoglymUK: +Asterio This shampoo is low foaming by design. It will clean your car perfectly, but does not foam up a lot. Remember, foam doesn't clean the car, the cleaning chemicals do. If you prefer more foam, check out our Bodywork Shampoo instead.
