no good automotive detailing products can be found in auto parts stores.

Amazon or autogeek for everything.

Sucks to have to ship shit, just order everything you need every few months to keep the costs down.

That's not true. Walmart carries the best soap I've ever used. Walmart also carries (or carried) Autoglym products also. Advance Auto also carries Griots Garage products which are almost universally recommended.

...besides, Woolite is not really a detailing supply so much as a home supply. Any Walmart or Target or grocery store should have it.

There are products far and few between. I buy my car wash soap locally, a few griots products here and there at advance(mostly speed shine), the rest of the products i buy are online. Sealants, polish, all purpose cleaners, wheel de-greasers, clay, pads, etc etc.

No wal mart doesn't have woolite so I figured if they don't, it must not be sold in Canada.
But I've seen AutoGlym products at Part Source.

Canadian Tire sells a whole line of the stuff, I just seen it there today. I was personally wondering about the leather cleaner myself, I want it to be clean but not have a blinding shine like I'm going to slide into the passengers seat when I get in. Any comments on how AutoGlym leather cleaner shows after use? maybe Vinyl And Rubber cleaner aswell?

On a funny note, I seen that they also sell "Bird Dropping Cleaners" in wipe form.. I found that quite humorous in the store reading the labels.
