Let’s Talk Suds. Should You Use Car Soap Or Dish Soap When Cleaning Your Car?
It’s a question that has vexed the car-cleaning community for years: which soap should you use when washing your car? Should it be dish soap or car soap?
The answer is, of course, both! But here’s the thing—you shouldn’t just pick one and go with it. The best way to clean your car is to experiment with both types of soap and see which works best for your vehicle.
You can’t go wrong with using dish soap on your car. It’s made specifically for cleaning dishes, so it’ll get rid of food residue quickly and easily. Plus, it has added lubricants that will help protect your paint job from scratching while you wash your ride down at the local car wash.
But don't forget about car soaps! These products are engineered specifically for cars, so they'll be able to remove dirt and grime much more effectively than regular dish soaps. They also contain special compounds that help protect the paint job from UV damage during exposure to sunlight (which can lead to fading or cracking).
