Mr.Clean Auto Dry Carwash soap

Postby rbrew17 » Tue Mar 10, 2015 11:59 am



I bought a Mr.Clean Auto Dry Carwash sprayer a few years ago and found it perfect for washing my Goldwing. Now I'm out of soap for it and cant find it anywhere. What did they do go out of business. What can I use instead of the green stuff it came with?

I've never used it but there're lots of soap and filter refills for sale on Ebay and Amazon. Kind of expensive though. Also, lots of articles on the net about substitutes to use instead of the Mr. Clean stuff. Most say any good quality car wash soap.

Yeah - S100 is cheaper than that stuff and prolly does just as good a job, except for the auto jet dry component... :mrgreen:

I use diluted purple industrial cleaner. Dilute half way with water for a really strong degreaser, or add even more water to get to a spray and wash. Just pump spray it on, let it sit for a bit, run a soaking wet cloth around till the whole bike has been wiped a bit, and hose it off. A good synthetic chamois from Walmart takes care of any streaks. Then the old spray can Pledge.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

The soap that comes with Mr Clean is the only soap that works with the Mr Clean sprayer. I tried others but nothing works. I guess that's why they can charge so much. I broke down and paid the price of the internet stuff but I hope I don't get ripped off with diluted stuff or imitation stuff.
