Car wash: Can you wash your car with washing up liquid?

“Those using washing up liquid to clean their car’s exterior should understand that it will contain a grease-removing agent which removes the wax and could make a real mess of the bodywork.”

The AA advises car owners invest in a car shampoo.

Their website says: “It’s important to use specialist car shampoo, rather than fairy liquid or other household products, which can break down the protective wax applied to your car.

“You won’t have to take a side job washing cars to afford the shampoo either; you can pick up reasonably priced brands at most supermarkets or specialist stores.”
