    I have always wanted a very suddsy wash shampoo.
    As we know some textures are moderately thick some even thicker - that doesn't mean one is sudsier than the other but just a observation.
    I noticed Wax Wash is near as thick if your ever used a snow bomb type of product, its thick and so is Wax Wash - nice yellow perfumed !
    Got to say I liked it very much - felt very lubricated over the paint work, so I'll use this product till it runs out so recommend it fellas.
    As you know I've been a huge fan of using the blower to dry off.
    This at times if being pedantic doesn't leave some areas 100% without noticing some blown water lines - this has bugged me sometimes but I've been more conscious limiting my contact to touching the paint work but this is why I bought Afterglow.
    Having the big green whatever it called micro fibre towel I soaked it up and ringed it out - sprayed on Afterglow as recommended and wiped down one panel at a time left for a mo then with another soft clean dry micro fibre wiped lightly the film Afterglow leaves.
    So upon doing the whole Sprint I stood back and went WOW.
    I think combined with the Wash n Wax then Afterglow wipe down black night Sprint "popped".......
    Now I won't need to use Afterglow every wash but it sure did lift the finish.
    I'm sure I could have achieved the same as I used to after a wash giving the car a spray and wipe with quick detail of brand this or that but I'm pretty happy working with these methods and the Bowdens regards these lines.
    By the way the shagatastic wash pad - not a long hairs or whatever way to describe this but seemed to feel ok once soaped up.
    Soft and flexible is how to describe it, I'll use it from now on, I have been using that good quality wool type mit for many years but wished a change.

    Perko, yes mate I still used the blower but knowing what I was doing next I didn't blow it as thorough - in some areas small blown runs were left and some beads wherever they were, I gave more attention to the grills/front driving light area/front guard badge where we know water is collected - I hate that and the blower is glorious clearing those areas up.
    Knowing the big green sucker towel soak up a lot of water whatever was on the car easily wiped away.
    I sprayed 3-4 times Afterglow on the towel, wiped down then as mentioned wiped lightly again with a dry towel.
    Next you turn over big green sucker use other side spray Afterglow repeat - then you ring it out again and repeat.

    Have you tried the nano wash?

    I have swapped to that and would be keen to hear how it compares to wax wash

    Yes, Nano was incl in my first kit I bought from Bowdens.
    I have a qrtr left.
    Look, I was satisfied with it because I feel their product is good - as mentioned I have always wanted very soapy wash water, long before detailing came more popular.
    I always use double in the bucket what they recommend can't help myself, so even so with Nano I don't think it suds up as much as I like, maybe I put in more with the Wash Wax mix - but not OTT, as mentioned its doubly thicker to Nano coming out of the bottle like the Snow Bomb soap so yer Wash n Wax is my pref at this stage.

    Good to know.

    I used the original, whatever that was called and stuck with it but wasn't really happy with it.

    I have swapped to nano because it juts feels to have more slip.

    Like you using more than meant to.

    Using wash and wax if you intend to use boss gloss or after glow makes a lot of sense.
