Citrus Cleanser

(39 customer reviews)



Citrus Cleanser is a powerful pH balanced formula that removes embedded bugs, grease & grime, without removing waxes, sealants or ceramic coatings.

Safe on nearly all finishes, our Citrus Cleanser can be used as a general use cleaner, on rubber mats, door shuts, arches, boot liners, engine bays, wheels & tyres.


  • Apply before snow foaming or hand washing.
  • Spray directly onto the surface.
  • Allow the formulation to dwell.
  • Heavily soiled finishes can be agitated with a soft bristle brush.
  • Rinse with copious amounts of water until water runs clear.
  • Do not allow the product to dry.

Chemical Resistant Sprayer included with 1L Bottle.


  1. Best citrus prewash I’ve ever used, a great 1st step before the snow foam.

  2. A great cleaner for stubborn areas. I use under arches to agitate tough areas, and works well with steam also to really get areas pristine.

    Also works great as a general cleaner. Really versatile.

  3. Brilliant pre wash cleaner

  4. Amazing cleaner

  5. I love this. I used citrus based cleaners before but have found them to be aggressive, even affecting clearcoat on paintwork. This however is incredibly effective without any aggressive caustic effects. Use this on everything from cleaning stubborn car areas to even cleaning my brushes. Awesome product!

  6. I use this on everything

  7. Great pre-wash!

  8. Brilliant product!! A must especially with a hospipe ban!

  9. Great product. Cuts through dirt and grim easily with a pre-soak. Really is a must have product.

  10. This sprayer spreads very fine mist. When used as a pre-wash on bird droppings and dead insects, it was very convenient because it could be removed simply by sprinkling water on it.
    I think this chemical has high detergency.

  11. Used this loads of time no job too big for it! Breaks down dirt like no other brilliant product would recommend to anyone!!

  12. Brilliant stuff, does what it should and smells nice!

  13. Neutral and safe Very easy to use

  14. Excellent product the best i have ever used. A++++

  15. Works well as a pre-wash, managed to remove all the bug splatter!

  16. By far the best I’ve used, excellent cleaning power

  17. Great stuff removes all grime and dirt.

  18. Brilliant product, by far the best I have ever used makes light work off cleaning

  19. Great product, Makes cleaning the car so much easier!

  20. One of the best I’ve ever used, makes baked on bird poo just disintegrate!

  21. Really is a great. Apply it to all really dirty places before applying snow foam

  22. Great product, use it to remove road salt and works well on motorcycles. Foams up well in a Lance.

  23. I am a big fan of a Citrus APC / Pre wash products and have used most brands, keep coming back to the Carbon Collective citrus cleanser it is incredibly effective for breaking down bugs and thick grime. I love using it under a thick layer of Ultimus in winter to increase working time. The scent is lovely and I also really rate it when cleaning badges and window trims with an ultra soft detailing brush.

  24. Had dried bugs on my car for over a year now, tried a number of products with no success. Used half my sample 50ml over the weekend and now one side of my car is spotless. Cannot wait to finish the other side this weekend. Would highly recommend

  25. Brilliant product!! Made the job so much easier after a couple of months without a proper full wash!

  26. I’ve never used anything that works so well, especially combined with the carbon collective shampoo

  27. Fantastic product! Used on the dead bugs on my grill and front bumper along with Optimus snow foam and came off with ease. 100% recommend this!!

  28. I use this with the CC pump sprayer to make a foam over the car. It’s a great pre-cleanser for effortless removal of everything from dirt and grime to baked on bugs, with the added bonus of smelling great too!

  29. Used a couple times now as I don’t like to review after my first go; a great citrus cleaner, can really tell it gets those extra bits of dirt off compared to just snow foam alone. And the thumb sprayer is so easy to use.

  30. Works well when diluted in a foam Lance, applied straight the working time is not too long.

  31. Removed a nasty stain on my others half’s car with ease that looked to either be roadkill related or some sort of thick sauce that’d since been baked on.

    Product smells great and also had no issues removing bird dirt and bugs from the cars before snow foaming

  32. Another Great product.. i have now replaced my pre-wash bug and tar remover with CC Citrus Cleanser and i am pleased with the results!

  33. Absolutely fantastic! My car hadn’t been washed in 6 weeks and what a result after using the Citrus Cleanser! It seems to remove dirt effortlessly. Very happy with this product!

  34. I’ve used a similar product from other detailing product producers and this is my favourite. In my opinion it’s just more effective. Just makes lifting some of the more ingrained dirt and bugs so much easier and gentler on the paintwork. I love it and would highly recommend it.

  35. This is the best cleaner I’ve ever used

  36. Amazing!!

  37. Excellent product yet again from cc

  38. Brilliant product for your pre-wash needs!

  39. Used my sample bottle of this over the weekend on an uncoated car that hasn’t been washed since before summer. Lots of baked on road grime and bugs lifted off easily. Followed by Ultimus and Lusso the car was gleaming in no time. I’ll definitely be adding more to my next order. Love the smell too!
