What is the liquid they use before washing the car

I have seen that they use a colourless liquid before applying a washing detergent on my car. I guess it is some kind of wax or an oil because normally after like 3-4 days there appears dust on the surface but after washing with that liquid first and then washing with Carnauba detergent still no sign of dust accumulated.

I'd suggest they use a pre-cleaner to remove spots and bird droppings and other environmental fallout from your vehicle before washing. Then washing with wash and wax, there remains a slight wax on the vehicle that will help repel some dust, but not all.

Frankly, I hate automatic car washes and always wash my vehicles myself. Cool water with mild car wash designed specifically for cars. No wash and wax which may give a nice temporary shine but little else. As I rinse the vehicle, I spray it with Griot's Spray Wax and then use a special dimpled synthetic chamois to remove the excess wax/water for a spot-free finish.

Clear coat protectants and polish waxes from car washes that are applied at the time of the wash are about useless. A way to grab more dollars from your pocket. They don't remain on your vehicle long enough to set, are not applied in a manner that is conducive to actually doing any good. All you get is the warm fuzzies and a good smelling car and a few less bucks in your wallet as you leave.

Soap is not completely washing all the soap powder away.


Stop using the powdered detergent. It has a reputation for clogging up machines and pumps. ALWAYS use the liquid detergent.

Hello,
Yes the detergent and softener will stay in the dispenser drawer until the correct time for them to be dispensed. The detergent is dispensed during the main wash cycle and the softener will not dispense until the rinse cycle

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

Do I put powder detergent in the same place I put Liquid detergent?


Detergent compartment
Add liquid or powdered detergent to this compartment for your
wash cycle. The detergent separator must always be in place,
either in the front or back position.
 Do not fill beyond the “MAX” level.
 Liquid or powdered color-safe bleach may be added to the
Main Wash compartment along with the same type of
detergent, liquid or powdered.
 Liquid detergent: Put the SEPARATOR in the front position,
between the guides, as shown as shown by Position 1 below.
There will be no gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

Powdered detergent:
Put the SEPARATOR in the back
position, behind the guides as shown by Position 1 below. There will be
a gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

NOTE: The separator will be in the POWDER (back) position
when shipped from the factory.

Which detergent for Haier HNS1260 washing machine.


Yes you can use liquid detergent, If your's is a high effeciency machine, use HE detergent. It cleans as well, but makes less suds, which can cripple a front loader. Alternative HE detergents can be made at home,if you're interested. They can be either liquid or dry. You can find the recipes on YouTube, with the search set to "Homemade Laundry Detergent". We make the dry version, and it works better than anything we can buy. It costs us .02 cents per load.
Back to your question, though. If you intend to use liquid detergent, look into your dispenser and see if there is a moveable divider that you can change for liquid or dry detergent dispensing. Set it to the appropriate setting if it does. If not, use very little detergent, and you may have to add it directly to the load, skipping the dispenser altogether. Another thing that you might consider is that, if you ever have to have any warranty type work done, and the tech discovers that you have used liquid detergent, they will want to void your warranty.

Best regards, --W/D--

Can you use Oxyclean along with detergent in front loaders?


I use 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Detergent and a 1/2 to 3/4 scoop of Oxyclean and I have had good results in my Front Loader. Clothes come out very clean and there is no residue on the inside of my washer.
