Can I use hair shampoo to wash my car


Hey guys, this is Natasha from Wollongong, I’m a 18 year old female who doesn’t have any experience when it comes to taking care of car, I just bought my first car, my question is can I use hair shampoo to wash my car? Will it damage the paint?

Can I use hair shampoo to wash my car

Well loving your car like you love your hair is a good thing, but that doesn’t mean you have to wash your car using a hair shampoo.

To answer your question, No you can’t use your hair shampoo to wash your car, it not recommended.

Washing your car using a hair shampoo wont damage your paint, it takes a lot more than a shampoo to damage the paint of a car, but I’m not saying wash your car using a hair shampoo.

If you don’t have a car shampoo for now, then I would only advise you to wash your car using a dish shampoo until you buy the proper car shampoo.

Why washing your car using a hair shampoo is bad?

Well, it won’t shine your car but it will be dimnessdusk or hazy instead even though it won’t damage the paint.

Some people even think washing a car using a baby shampoo is okay, well it not. Baby shampoos were made for babies, hair shampoos were made for hair not for cars. That why they are called hair shampoo or baby shampoo.

I don’t care whether you have a human body shampoo, hair shampoo, baby shampoo or what so ever, as long as it is not a car shampoo I’m against using it.

You need to love your car like you love yourself, that will make it last you longer than expected.

Let me ask you this!!!!!

Will you wash your hair using a car shampoo? I’m sure you won’t, that why using hair shampoo on your car is also wrong.

Well it just a car, what could probably go wrong?

Washing your car using a shampoo that wasn’t designed to wash cars will slowly dimness the paint, that why buying a car shampoo is a good option since most of car shampoos were also designed to protect and clearance the paint of the car.

What is the best car shampoo on the market right now?

Well I’m only going to recommend a shampoo that I have also used on my cars. My best and only shampoo that I use to wash my cars is Meguiars gold class.


Because it condition the paint, clears debris to reveal the color and clarity, I have been using this for about 6 months and don’t have a single regret from using it.

Where can you buy Meguiars gold class car shampoo?

Well getting this car shampoo offline is very hard, the easiest way to buy this shampoo is by making an order from amazon.

I would advise you to use a dish shampoo while waiting for this Meguiars gold class, a dish shampoo won’t do no harm on your paint as long as you use it occasionally.


Don’t wash your car using cloth rags, using cloth rags to wash your car can sometimes scratch the paint, you need to buy car washing towels.

For now I’m using VibraWipe VWM-08 Microfiber Cleaning Cloths when washing my cars, it an excellent cloth for washing cars.

If you were also wondering about how to make your car smells good then I would advise you to buy Etonner serenade in Versailles capacity, wow wow wow, I don’t have words to describe this car perfume.

This car perfume helped me to get the most beautiful girl I ever wanted at work, who is now my wife lol.

To be honest I don’t know of any store that sells Etonner serenade in Versailles capacity. I bought it from amazon.

But this car perfume is new, it only have two reviews from amazon, a lot of people don’t know about it yet, it was also introduced to me by my boss.

My boss told me to take his car to the car wash last month and it was smelling very nice, so I asked him what perfume was he using on his car, he told me it was Etonner.
