Spray Mist Detailer....Which one?

I'm just curious as to which spray/mist detailer is everyone's favorite?

Its time to buy some, so just looking for opinions. Thank you!

I don't know which one is best but I'd avoid those that contains silicone. It you ever need paint work that stuff can cause catastrophic fisheyes and is very hard to completely remove before paint.
I believe one of the Mothers products is silicone-free.

Detailing

Check out Autogeek.com for their options and detailing topics . Some of their stuff can be pretty $$ but they have lots of detailing tips etc. I use several different products from Adams, Blackfire , Wolfgang and Surf City Garage on the West Coast.
There are as many choices as their are opinions.

Optimum No Rinse. You can dilute it down to a quick detailer, clay lube, use it for rinseless washes, etc. Genuinely the best product I've tried or used to date, and I've tried quite a few of them.

A 32oz bottle will dilute down to 4 gallons of product, for reference.

Thank you for the info. I wouldn't have thought of that.

I appreciate all the comments and experience that you all have shared.

My vote goes to Griots Garage for their wash soap. I get no streaking out of it.

I have been using Chemical Guys products for a few years now and have been very happy with them.
Their wash mitt and wash sponge with a clay coating are especially nice to use for washing and detailing.
