In today’s car wash market, there are several product options for getting vehicles clean. Presoak is the typical nomenclature for chemicals applied early in the wash cycle.

The presoak has a high priority role in removing unwanted debris and contaminants from vehicle surfaces. They can be comprised of alkaline materials designed to remove organic materials, including grease, oil, bugs, and roadkill. Presoaks can also be made from acidic materials designed to remove inorganic materials, including brake dust and metallic particles. Finally, presoaks may be built from specific surfactant blends, which are pH neutral. They encapsulate dirt and promote release from the vehicle surface.

Does It Work Well?

Harry of Logan’s Car Wash in Pennsylvania says, “I have been using the Inbay Turbo Powder for the past 5 years. For being a powder, it works really well at both cleaning ability, and it has a great clingy foam that gives a nice dwell time with my automatic. I found it always mixes easily with warm water, and I mix it with a barrel mixer in an empty 55 plastic drum. My customers like it, and it does an excellent job with tires and rims, also. The cost per car is better than the liquid presoak I was using, and in the harder-to-clean season, I can afford to run it at lower dilutions so I can turn out cleaner cars.”
