Homemade Car Wash Soap Recipe
You can make your own homemade car wash soap with this recipe:
Mix the ingredients together in a large bucket and wash your car with it.
The baking soda works as a mild abrasive to help clean off road grit and grime, including dead bugs and things like that without harming your finish.

Use Baby Shampoo As Homemade Car Washing Soap
by Miata Car Club founder & car enthusiast for 20+ years
Car Enthusiast says:
Dish soaps like Dawn
will wash your car, but you should also be warned that they will strip the wax off your vehicle leaving the paint open for damage by the elements, such as road grime, bird poo
, rain, leaves, tree sap
Do not use Dawn unless you plan as your next step to re-wax your car, or else you run the risk of ruining the paint.
The clear coating on todays cars is not strong! You pay so much for a car (between the cost of the car, gas, insurance, maintenance, etc.) why use dish soap and hurt it?
My suggestion, use baby shampoo and if there is grime use a sponge/rag covered in a pantyhose for 'scrubbing'.
Thanks so much for sharing these additional words of wisdom about making our own car cleaning products.
I would love to hear from even more people who make their own car car products, giving me your recipes and techniques. You can share your homemade recipes here
