Looking for some cleaning supplies

I was going through the product reviews but there was way to many different things in there that I haven't really heard of, basically just wondering where I can find some good/cheap cleaning supplies out there. Rather not walk into lordco or some other place and get them to recommend me things that are a complete waste of money.

Thanks.

eshine.ca, carcaresmart.com, and autogeek.net are also good sites to order from. The first 2 are Canadian.
Shampoo: go for something basic, meg's GC is a good, simple shampoo. There are others, too.
Window cleaner: Stoner's invisible glass is popular, and I find it to work pretty damn well.
Wax: there are lots of waxes, and they vary in price by a lot. Assuming you're new to detailing/proper maintenance, I wouldn't really spend more than $40 or so. There are some DoDo waxes you can get for around there, if they're on sale. Most of the waxes on the above sites will do just fine. Keep in mind, some waxes are made for certain colours, and that should be listed in the product info.

its one thing to order online

but its a completely other story when u can go walk up to the expert, ask for his advice.

no 2 products are alike, one may be better for dark colored cars, while other is good for light colored cars.

go see autowerkesexclusive.

well said, Ken @ autowerkes will get you set up. That and you're actually able to demo the products and see what you like better most of the time. Give him a call.
