You need to try Purple Velvet HIgh Gloss Shampoo!



The goal when washing your vehicle should be to remove as much contamination as possible before carrying out our Safe 2 bucket contact wash, therefore when washing your pride and joy, we thoroughly recommend that you carry out a Pre Wash process using Citrus wash All-purpose cleaner, followed by Magifoam or one of our other pre-wash snow foams.

For the wash process, we recommend using 2 of our detailing buckets fitted with grit guards to minimize the risk of free-floating debris. Fill both of these buckets with fresh water, one for rinsing and one for your wash solution. Purple Velvet shampoo is an exceptionally high gloss, high foaming shampoo that cleans and maintains as it goes. Containing the finest ingredients to clean all manner of dirt from your paintwork. For general use, Purple Velvets dilution ratio of 1500-1 translates into 10ml or a single cap full per 18-litre bucket. Once you have added your chosen shampoo agitate the solution with a moving water source e.g hose or pressure washer to achieve the level of foam required.

Using a quality wash mitt, begin washing your vehicle from the top, down, applying minimal pressure to your chosen wash media.
Ensure that your wash media is rinsed regularly to prevent particle build-up within the media and reduce the chance of inflicting any paint damage. If washing the vehicle on a warm day we recommend washing panel by panel rinsing as you go. Once the wash is complete, give the vehicle a thorough rinse ensuring to remove any shampoo residue from panel gaps and door shuts.
We recommend using Top Gloss Shine as a drying aid to help reduce the chance of water spotting and leave a glossy finish.

Drying the vehicle should be carried out as soon as possible after washing using one of our Ultimate drying towels Now stand back and admire the gloss, team up with Cherry glaze All In One and Elegance luxury finish detailing spray for an outstanding finish!

What Makes a good car shampoo?

A good car shampoo is one that effectively cleans dirt and contaminants from your vehicle’s paintwork while being gentle on the finish. It should produce a high level of foam for lubrication, making it easier to glide a wash mitt over the surface. Additionally, a good car shampoo should be pH-balanced to avoid damaging the paint or stripping wax or sealants.

Does Car Shampoo make a difference?

Yes, car shampoo makes a significant difference in the quality of your vehicle’s wash. It helps to safely and effectively remove dirt, grime, and contaminants from your vehicle’s paint without causing damage. Using a high-quality car shampoo, like Purple Velvet, can enhance the cleanliness and shine of your vehicle.

How often should you use car shampoo?

The frequency of using car shampoo depends on factors such as how often you drive your vehicle, the type of environment it’s exposed to, and your personal preferences. Generally, it’s recommended to wash your vehicle every 2-4 weeks to prevent the buildup of dirt and contaminants that can harm your vehicle’s finish.

Does car shampoo fade paint?

A good-quality car shampoo, formulated to be pH-balanced and gentle on automotive finishes, should not fade or damage the paint. However, using harsh or abrasive cleaning products or scrubbing aggressively with inappropriate tools can potentially damage the paint over time. It’s essential to use a suitable car shampoo and proper washing techniques to avoid any harm to the paint.

Can car shampoo damage paint?

A well-formulated car shampoo like Autobrite Directs, should not damage the paint when used correctly. However, using low-quality or harsh shampoos can potentially damage the paint. It’s crucial to follow proper car washing procedures and use high-quality products to minimise the risk of damage to your vehicle’s finish.

Lots of suds, high gloss, smells great and minimal product required to achieve all of the above. Amazing, what more could you need from a shampoo.


I’ve gone through my fair share of shampoo’s in my time but WOW! This is something else. You need such a small amount to create thick lushes suds that last the duration of you wash. You can literally feel the high gloss this leaves on your vehicle even after a single pass with your mitt.

Love purple velvet amazing suds and overall high quality product!

Ryan Hopkins

Well not even 1/4 of a way through my 5 litre tub had this tub for over a year now ... its brilliant stuff.. smells wonderfull.

Alessio Marino

Its ok.. His cleaning properties are good and the smell its awesome. But I don't know why it leaves a protective kinda film on the bodywork that during the rinse phase it reduces the beading and sheeting of Magiseal which was applied the previous week ? very strange. I'm the only one?!?!
