Default Mixing Car Washes

Hey all,

I went to wash my rides the other day..... but I didn't have quiet enough Mothers to bring the suds level in my bucket upto what I like (I was washing 2 cars).... so I added in some of that Rain-X Wash & Wax.

Can anyone think of anything negative?

Sidenote....
Previously I washed one car w/ Rain-X Wash & Wax and the other with Mother'*.
The differences are (that I saw) the Rain-X was really thick and made suds well... took the dirt off fine, and those "wax beeds" were kinda neat. But Mother'* resisted water spotting far better then the Rain-X.

only negative possible with all washing is not using the right amount of concentrate.

too much will most likely leave a soap film.
too little might not provide enough lubriacation for the wash mitt or sponge that you are using, or it just might not float away contaminants good enough
