Chemical Guys Clean Slate Surface Cleanser Wash

Clean Slate Surface Cleanser Wash is a premium car soap that strips away old wax before a full detail. The advanced cleaning formula removes dirt, debris, and old layers of wax to prepare the surface for further detailing treatments or vehicle wrapping. Clean Slate is super-concentrated for maximum cleaning power, and rinses clean without any residue. Professional detailers routinely remove old layers of wax and sealant that block fresh wax, clear bras, and vinyl wraps from sticking directly to paintwork. Wash with Clean Slate before polishing to avoid wax residue buildup on polishing pads. Remove leftover coatings with Clean Slate to make clay bar decontamination services faster and easier. Use Clean Slate after polishing to remove oils and residues before applying vehicle coatings, clear bra wraps, vinyl wraps, decals, or protective wax. Clean Slate provides maximum lubrication to avoid installing any swirls or scratches while washing any vehicle. Clean Slate is pH-balanced, non-caustic, and will not dry out any plastic, rubber, or vinyl surfaces found on bumpers and mirrors. Clean and prepare the surface of your vehicle for a fresh layer of wax and sealant, or wraps and decals. Wash away old detailing jobs and start fresh with Chemical Guys Clean Slate Surface Cleanser Wash.

Detailers and enthusiasts used to wash off old car wax and sealant with dish soap. While dish soap removes grease and food from plates and cups, it is simply too strong and caustic for automobiles. High pH dish soap etches car paint and stains rubber and plastic bumpers and moldings. Chemical Guys developed Clean Slate Surface Cleanser Wash to gently release old layers of glaze, sealant, and wax for superior surface preparation during a full service car detail. The pH-balanced formula is gentle on all automotive surfaces like paintwork, vinyl, rubber, glass, and plastic. Clean Slate removes old layers of vehicle coatings, and will not cause any etching or staining. Wash with Clean Slate by itself, or add Clean Slate to your normal two-bucket car wash or foam cannon soap for extra thick cleaning power that sticks where it’s needed most. Slick lubricants and emulsifiers lift and separate abrasive dirt and grime for a scratch-free car wash experience. Start a full detail off right with Chemical Guys Clean Slate Surface Cleanser Wash.

Leaving old layers of wax, grease, and contamination on paintwork ruins fresh car details. Fresh wax, clear bras, vinyl wraps, and decals stick better directly to paint, not to old faded wax. Clean Slate Surface Cleanser Wash releases old layers of wax, sealant, and glaze from exterior surfaces. Built-up products block new layers of wax and clear bra wraps from sticking directly to paintwork, and clogs buffing and polishing pads. Washing away old wax with Clean Slate is easier than scrubbing it off with a clay bar. Removing old products totally exposes paintwork for a true look at the condition of the finish. Reveal every scratch and defect and remove them with proper paint polishing and compounding steps the first time. Machine polishing pads work better over totally clean surfaces, and take longer to clog up with spent product and paint residue. Polishing over clean surfaces saves time and energy, and produces more purity in reflection. A clean bond gives the best look with longest durability to any wax, vinyl wrap, or clear bra. Produce superior shine and long term results by starting any detail with Clean Slate Surface Cleanser Wash.

Works like stated!

Stripped the existing layer of wax off and made it squeaky clean for a fresh layer of wax to sit on!
