As most of you know, I'm a RZR cleaning and detailing maniac!!!! In my everlasting quest for the best cleaning products, I have discovered the best washing soap I have ever used. It's Ultra Palmolive OXY Plus. It's cheap and the bubbles last a long time. It's also very slick, so less abrasion against your RZR body. :icon_rockwoot: All the automotive soaps I have used end up breaking down too quick and I end up using up the bottle in no time at all.



While I'm on this topic, another product that has been impressing me is Purple Power. I spray the chassis, engine, suspension, essentially everything under the body with this stuff. It seems to melt the dirt away. The only problem is, living in Canada, this product is not available up here. I heard about this product a while back, so when I visited the Oregon Dunes this past summer, I picked up some from WALMART. I just hope I can get my hands on some more of this incredible product from the States before I run out. :cry:



Now get out there and clean your RZR.

I agree with Purple Pwer being...well...awesome haha. I use it to clean the engine bay of my truck. I'll check into that brand of soap you are talking about. Any help is great so thanks!

The only thing that comes in liters/litres down here is Coke.....lol! The Castrol SuperClean is some awesome degreaser too. I put it in a spray bottle and spray it on and let it soak then hit it again right before I hit it with a high pressure wand....works best with hot water. Im glad my local car wash has a rinse cycle with hot water.

I have had good results using the Orange Blast that you can get at Wal-mart... I need to try the Purple Power myself I used it on my dirt bikes and then kinda migrated over the the Orange Blast... Time to clean my stuff up so it looks sweeeet when I roll out of the TH in Glamis

I'll give Ultra Palmolive OXY Plus a try. I seem to go though way to much of your standard car wash solution.

I am no where near as into the cleaning as you, but one thing i have been told is dish soap is bad. Something about salts or something promoting rust... probably BS, but anyways thought someone who works as hard keeping there crap so nice, might be into the details.

I wouldn't use this Palmolive soap on a vehicle, because it will likely strip all the wax and/or protectants off of the paint...unless of course you don't mind waxing your vehicle after every wash!!! It would be fine in the wheel wells and undercarriage though. On the RZR, once it's all cleaned, gets plenty of silicone protectant (SC1) anyways.

I find that Castrol SuperClean is to caustic. It does work pretty good, but now I prefer PP.
That is true Bil...DO NOT use the stuff on anodized parts, you'll be sorry. My son in law completely stained the front forks on his Honda CR 250 and they are butt ugly now. I also have a friend that soaks pistons in it to clean them and they come out looking practically new, the carbon just rinses right off afterwards.
