Best Products for Washing Your Car at Home

Washing your car may seem like an ordinary part of your weekly or monthly routine, but there are several ways you can make the most out of washing your vehicle. The result? It looks clean and brand new for as long as possible. There are many commercial options for washing your vehicle, and you can easily buy the supplies you need to wash it at home. However, if you decide to handle your car washes in the future, these are the products you should be using.

Meguiar’s Gold Class Car Wash

The best soap

This highly rated soap is designed to clean your car’s paint without hurting the protective wax coating.

Relentless Drive Ultimate Car Wash Mitt

An absorbent, washable mitt

This microfiber wash mitt has a thick nap that absorbs lots of sudsy water and helps keep dirt particles away from the paint.

Dramm ColorStorm Premium Rubber Hose (50ft)

The best garden hose

This tough rubber hose isn’t cheap and can be heavy to wrangle, but its strong fittings and durable body can last for years—and there’s a lifetime warranty, just in case.

Gilmour Full Size Zinc Pistol Grip Nozzle

A well-made, inexpensive hose nozzle

Far from fancy, this basic hose nozzle is affordable, solidly built, and easy to use, and it has a great spray pattern.

Meguiar’s Water Magnet Drying Towel

The best towel to dry a car

This waffle-weave microfiber towel absorbs lots of water and won’t scratch the paint.

Sprayway Glass Cleaner

An effective, affordable glass cleaner

This glass cleaner is inexpensive, effective, and widely available, and will quickly clear away the grime on any glass surface.

Stoner Car Care Tarminator

To remove stubborn tar and bugs

This degreaser will help remove stuck-on debris better than a milder car wash soap.

Eagle One A2Z All Wheel & Tire Cleaner

The best wheel cleaner

This spray-on, wipe-off cleaner makes it easier to spruce up wheels, although some scrubbing is needed with all of these cleaners.

Meguiar’s Quik Detailer

For bird poop, bugs, and other touch-ups between washes

Spray on this cleaner between full washes to wipe off dirt, dead bugs, bird poop, and other elements that can hurt your car’s paint.
