It has a blend of deep cleaning detergents infused with Citrus Oil to give fast-acting cleaning, removing the toughest of grime with ease! Citrus Wash is also ideal for removing road grime, bug splatter, moss, and mildew from all painted, plastic, vinyl, and rubber surfaces.

The Autobrite Direct Citrus cleaner is a gentle cleaner that will clean almost any surface and rapidly remove dirt and grime. Ideal for pre-spraying many different parts of the car. Lower door panels, bumpers and badges, wheel arches, engines & door shuts, convertible roofs, tyres, and pretty much everything it touches! Citrus Wash is also ideal for all types of vehicles such as cars, motorcycles, vans, trucks, etc.

This multi-purpose citrus car cleaner is also safe for all glass and plastic windows and other delicate areas and materials found on vehicles. It can be diluted as far as 1:100 for extremely economical use during summer weather and can be used in heavier concentrations to eliminate even the nastiest of road grime.

Dilution information:

  • 100-1 Light summer use - This is perfect for applying in warmer temperatures to remove the lightest of dust and dirt.
  • 50-1 General Pre-Wash - This is our general recommendation on the day-to-day cleaning of your car, at this dilution Citrus Wash will remove dirt, grime, light traffic film, bug splatter, moss & mildew build-up, etc
  • 30-1 Heavy Pre-Wash - At this dilution, this dilution is recommended for heavy road traffic film, heavy bug splatter, extreme winter salt, embedded tree sap, heavy dirt, mud splatter, and heavy grime.
  • 10-1 Degreasing - This is the strongest dilution we recommend for our Citrus Wash. This is ideal for engine bays that contain heavy dirt, grime, and light grease and oil (for heavy oil look at our Demon) inner arches, suspension components, door shuts, extreme grime, dirt, and traffic film.

Excellent cleaning 👌


First time at 100 ml to 1 litre water in a AD spray bottle used around the windows rubbers shunts boot engine bay badges and wipes to keep them clean from road grime this is a fantastic product this is my now use pre wash and i even use it on the first stage before power washing the car would recommend it and will be buying a 1 litre next time a little goes a long way keep up the good work AD and got some good advice from kevin as well.


Fantastic product - I personally use the Citrus Wash immediately before foaming with Magifoam for increased 'bite' and dwell time, and it cuts through road grime and dirt with ease. Love it!


Brilliant efficient cleaner. I mix to the instructions. I use it on the inertia plastics and the tires. also extremely effective at lossening bugs off the front of the car and my bike before rinsing and snow foam,
