Hi. I have a Ford Fiesta Metal with Smart Guard paint protection. I was wondering us it ok to use other car shampoos on it other then the Smart Guard stuff has I have to keep ordering online and the charge me £10 just for p&p. I don't mind spending money on cleaning but I would rather be spending the extra £10 on the car then on postage. Hope you can help.

Modern car shampoos usually have something written on the packaging telling you that their product does not remove wax or protective coatings. These would be ok for your car, but the smartguard shampoo likely has a little something in it, to keep topping up the protection though. Maybe alternate an ordinary wash with a smart guard one which would  be cheaper in the long run.

Use a decent quality shampoo and you will be fine.

 

Your smart guard protection won't actually be lasting that long anyway, its only like every other product around in that it will wear off due to road conditions.

Aslong and your shampoo is PH Neutral you'll be fine. Have a look on Polished Bliss there will be loads on there and its free postage :-)
