How to Use Gyeon Q²M Bathe
Gyeon Q²M Bathe is a traditional car soap which should be diluted in a bucket with warm water. Shake the bottle, then use the supplied pump dispenser to add 12-15 squirts (about 20ml) into your bucket. Then add 10 liters of warm water, giving you the suggested dilution ratio of 500:1. For a complete step-by-step guide on how to use the two bucket car wash method check out our PRO Detailer in-depth guide.
Gyeon Q²M Bathe produces thick, lubricious, long lasting suds with a pleasant scent. To maximise the soap suds, place the tip of your pressure washer lance below the water line in your bucket. Then spray a jet of water into the bucket to create even more, super slick suds.
Whenever washing a car, we always recommend you carry out a pre-wash before undertaking a contact wash. For a complete step-by-step guide on how to safely wash your car, check out our PRO Detailer in-depth guide.
If you follow our PRO Detailer guide, when you get to stage 6 – The Contact Wash, the process will remain the same. Wash your car carefully and methodically, one panel at a time. Work around the car from top to bottom.
