if you're letting your car get that dirty that it needs scrubbing the soap isn't really going to matter...

I buy Optimum No-Rinse car wash and dilute it to quick detailer strength. Get a lot more out of that little bottle.

I will second this but, when Megs Ultimate Wash And Wax Anywhere came out I grabbed a bottle to use as a detail spray and it works even better. It was $10 the first week it came out but now its $15. On to a Chemical Guys detail spray next.

yeah i mean i need to go pick up the broom with the sponge on the end to make it a little easier too, i definitely hit every spot with the hand sponge multiple times though, it is hard to keep a black car clean for long though :(
