    Price not being a factor, from the ones I've tried, I love me the Zymol, the AutoGlym and the Adams.

    Hands down optimum for regular maintenance, I have gotten away from it though and have been using Adam's which I REALLY like too because of its lubricity.

    Excluding the waterless/rinseless washes my favorites are Optimum Car Wash and Dodo Juice Born to be Mild.

    Lusso (crazy expensive at the recommended dilutions although I understand that less product works fine if you don't have hard water) and Prima Hydro are on my list to try next.

    Next shampoo I try will be either Adams or Pinnacle.

    Another vote for Optimum Car Wash. Although my experience is limited to about 10 different shampoos OCW foams excellent, cleans very well, rinses well, and leaves a gloss better than most others. Still hoping to try Adam's someday.

    I doubt that Optimum will be better than Lusso.

    Looks like Optimum Car Wash will be my next soap.

    Optimum is a nice all round soap .It is a great foamer -- maybe too much for some. The bottles says 1 oz per gallon but works perfect at 0.5 oz per gallon,. It is also cost effective and one of the a select group of soaps that do not go flat when cleaning tires, etc. Adam's is nice too but for $11.95 you get a quart of Optimum compared to $9,95 16 oz Adam's using same dilution. They are both made in USA.

    Duragloss 901 (hate the smell), Zaino, OCW, Prima Mistique are all in my tops. I haven't tried Prima Hydro Wash yet as I have GALLONS of shampoo to use before I can think of even buying anything else.

    I have a new one from Raceglaze coming. $35 for 16oz. I'll set one aside for you! LOL Also, just tried Victoria Wax Super Soap ($18 / 16oz). Hands down the nicest soap I've used.

    you're right, it wasn't. Tried out Optimum car wash 3 times, still like Lusso better. Lusso may be pricy but you don't need to use a whole lot of product.

    Have you ever tried Pinnacle Shampoo by any chance?
    I can't decide between Lusso & Pinnacle for my next order.

    Like you said about the Optimum not being as good as Lusso. My turn to say stick with the Lusso. LOL
