    probably..... maybe slightly tweaked for trademark purposes.

    I love my maxi suds. so cheap, but so effective.

    you can send them over here and I can test it for you, ill be sure to send you back the empty bottles lol
    but yeah their opacity/color looks the same
    if they smell and work the same, no doubt lol
    you can get some ph paper and see if they have the same ph too
    CG does indeed do re-trademarking of products, look on their site =p

    its a common fact that CG/ warner chemicals makes products for many others.........even adam will tell you, but they are reformulated to fit his needs and specs as well as standards.

    I believe Poorboys, some groits garage stuff, and a few others are made/private label by cg. (correct me if im wrong)

    Ya Kilo you're probley right. I heard once that CG EZ Creme was pretty similar to PB's black hole glaze..
    And Griot's Garage stuff in my opinion is not that great.

    The only difference between them is the price tag lol

    LOL. CG, one reason why they are cheap is they dont use fancy flashy labels. and they have no web master, its some kid from the continuation school who has no clue about proper grammer. Keeps the costs down.

    I like CG, I think the people who work there are rather worthless, but the prices and the products fall into the lines of what I like and cost effectivness; and i get it in two days or less.

    I am not sure what the process is for private labeling, but they do advertise it.

    Yup! Half the time I can't understand the product description on the website. But I buy their products because they just seem to work.

    Interesting photo. What about concentration? I know Adam's Car Wash is 1oz per 4 gallons of water which is just insanely concentrated. If I'm not mistaken, Maxi Suds is 1oz per 1 gallon of water? Can somebody confirm? I only have experience with the Adam's product.

    I just wish some of the companies often accused of being CG rebottlers would provide a plant tour of where the products are actually made. I do not mean showing pictures of filling bottles from 55 gallon drums. It sure would dispel all the rumors rather than "no they are not".

    I just wonder why CG Bare Bones has been available 2 to 3 different colors and multiple scents. It looks like they are picking up production end runs. I have used CG Bare Bones, Adam's UC Spray, and Griot's UC Spray and they were not identical. Maybe consider CG like "coffee of the day" but that is why it costs less.
