Economical APC Ideal for everything interior accept for carpets in my opinion
April 2, 2022
Pair it with proper brushes or even a steamer this will clean all dirty plastic vinyl surfaces without chalky white residues. Very strong even at 10:1. On carpets I personally wouldn’t use cause it’s not really strong enough to target heavy soiling on upholstery. It will work on carpets but with more work required (if that makes sense) Exterior wise it is ok but maybe not designed for it necessarily
ProsDilutable (I find it 10:1 is where it shines on cleaning plastics and vinyl surfaces) Great on leather and about everything except upholstery
ConsHarsh scent plz consider wearing a respirator if u aren't working in a decently ventilated area

Great Value for a Really Good All Purpose Cleaner
April 2, 2021
The price point that Meg's has this selling at, alone make it a great product if just for that reason. It's the best smelling cleaner on the market but it's not a deal breaker either. Simple and easy dilution ratios and effective cleaning properties even at 1:4. I usually run it a bit stronger at 1:3 and the difference is very different. Used it straight 100% on a set of badly stained seats from grease and dirt and hydraulic oil.... And it's brought them to like new condition!
ProsEffective strength of cleaner, even diluted Doesn't spot or stain or discolor any material as of yet Excellent value, probably the best value on the market Works on all kinds of areas from wheels and tires to saddle leather
ConsSmells bad, chemical smell is harsh Could stand to be a tiny bit stronger

This gallon of APC dilutes to so many gallons, it will last a very, very long time. And it works very well. I spilled a little bit on the floor of my garage, and when I wiped it up, it left a big clean circle on the floor. Now I see it every morning and it reminds me how well this stuff works.

Always a detailers favorite APC. Multiple uses dilutable cost effective. You can waste it compared to the competition at twice the price and not feel bad. All around winner. Main uses tires, all weather mats for me.

Great apc if diluted right

In use this quite a lot for cleaning interiors of semis that have been smoked in at 1:5-1:8 ratio and it will literally pull the nicotine and tar right off the plastic interiors
By Jed
Works good

I like using this product. The ability to change the dilution ratio is nice if you need a little more power or less its an easy fix.

Great all around product
November 23, 2017
This product has been great for me on all interior and exterior surfaces. Recently used it as a pre-wash cleaner as i forgot my foam lance on a job. Got the job done as it always does. I use it 7:1
ProsWorks great 7:1 which will yield 8 gallons!!

I ordered this last week from AUTOPIA. its not my 1st time using it, but its my 1st time receiving it from AUTOPIA as a gallon. Came packaged great. Caps were even taped down for extra protection. Product is a must for your detailing collection!

Tried as leather cleaner
November 6, 2016
I had reservations on using an APC for leather. However, I tried using many leather cleaners including the many highly rated leather cleaners. I used at a 10:1 ratio with a leather brush and then wiped down with a damp microfiber, followed by a dry microfiber. It worked excellent (back to new). Very impressive on my ivory Lexus leather. I believe if I didn't let it get so bad the standard cleaners would be fine. I just needed a little extra cleaning power and this did the trick. Very happy.

It's ok for all around cleaning
June 30, 2016
This is a good APC and it will last a long time. it has a strong smell that will irritate your nose if you spray a lot. It is not that effective on wheels. If you plan to use this on wheels, buy a dedicated wheel cleaner.
Proscleans well foams up, especially if you use brushes and agitate it.
Consnot that effective on wheels, you're better off buying a dedicated wheel cleaner

Great APC at a Great Price!
June 17, 2016
This is my go to APC! Its very versatile and can be used for everything from light interior to cleaning filthy tires - just adjust your dilution accordingly. At this price, it can't be beat.
ProsVersatile! Pleasant smell Great price and value

Even when it's diluted 10:1, it foams and cleans like nobody's business. Be careful on dials with white printed labels, because it can smear them or completely erase them.
ProsGoes a long way! Good smell Foaming action Strong even when diluted
By Noah

Use this product and always have a gallon or two on me. Can be diluted to fit anyone's needs and can handle the exterior and interior with ease.
ProsCheap, effective

Good Product for Price and Size
February 23, 2016
When using this product, obviously you must dilute it. For me, it has been working great, from cleaning the tires to buffing out a few scuffs on the interior. After almost a year, I still have the gallon and use it to clean many parts of the car. I would be careful with getting this product on skin and smelling it. When I am cleaning my car, sometimes the smell gets to my nose when I try to avoid it and it just burns and smells awful. Sometimes I need the product for a quick touch up and don't wear gloves (big regret), my skin tingles and feels awful afterwards.
ProsCleans very well Good bang for buck
ConsSmell is harmful Contact on skin is harmful

Mix stronger for tires
November 23, 2015
The instructions quote 10:1 for general use and I was disappointed with it on tires. It simply would not clean and just foamed slightly. After reading other reviews and mixing 4:1, the cleaning ability has increased greatly. It works, just mix it correctly!

Good APC and great price
September 10, 2015
For me, it is pretty hard to mess up an APC. This one did the job and dilutes nicely. It is definitely better to just buy a gallon of concentrate as opposed to the pre-made stuff.

Our Go-To APC

We use Megs APC D101 for everything. Carpet stains, light bug residue on headlights, wheel wells, tires, trim pieces, boat seats, etc. Buy the gallon! You will find a use for it.
ProsVery Cost effective Endless uses Smells decent Works well on interiors
ConsFoams a lot when used with an extractor Not quite what you need for greasy tires and wheel wells

Great interior APC
June 13, 2015
Great interior all purpose cleaner, used it on a 2005 ram 1500 seats with extractor very good results. I use it with a brush by hand also general interior cleaning / carpets. As far as a exterior there are better APC available. I bought 2 megs spray bottles 1 for 10 to 1 & 1 for 4 to 1 so I'm prepared.
ProsPrice At 10 to 1, one gallon will last awhile Smells nice
ConsNone that I've seen so far.
By Max
Best APC!!

This has to be the best APC on the market. I detail two vehicles using this cleaner and both clients were very very happy. I will only continue to use this great product.
Proscleans everything, Great on carpets dash with a nice clean smell.
ConsNo sure

Very good APC
December 1, 2014
Great APC for the price. It cleans almost everything very well at high dilution ratio's however even 1:1 doesn't seem to be enough to get tires perfect with one or even two go arounds. Always still a little bit of brown left after scrubbing even if it isn't much. But I do use this everywhere around the house, garage and the cars.
ProsVersatile Cheap
ConsCould be better cleaning tires

Purchased this so I can use it for the leather seats and clean the dressing off the tires. Best of both worlds. Smell is not to pleasant though. Thinking of mixing in some Meguiar's Glass Cleaner to make it smell better.
ProsGreat foaming action Can be diluted many ways
Conschemical smell

When I couldn't get the APC+ anymore I went with this. Basically feels about the same to me but im hesitant to use it on upholstery since it has a tendency to foam up. Not the best for carpet if youre worried about that. Besides that it cleans great!
By Wendell J.

Another great Product
September 6, 2014
This is a must have product.....very versatile can be used on wheels, wheel wells, but does its best work on carpets and upholstery ....can be mixed for stronger and tougher carpet stains, works great either from a spray bottle or extractor.....A must have product
ProsVery versatile , clean smell, works great on carpet and upholstery...priced right too !!
ConsA bit too foamy
By EVOlved
Think it can't be done, think again!!
September 4, 2014
D101 is a truly great APC it effectively cleans tires, wheels, interior grime, carpets, and stuff around the house too!! On carpets it is quite foamy just a forewarning but it does work well. I don't find the smell to be offensive at all once diluted. Overall a fantastic product that is extremely cost effective most jobs can be done at 10:1 dilution, besides tires which I do at 4:1. But like stated the results are fantastic it does it's job.
ProsCost effective Truly all purpose Doesn't smell offensive when diluted

Your Basic APC
April 12, 2012
Meg's D101 APC is your average cleaner. At normal dilution ratios is is an average multipurpose cleaner. For tough jobs you really need to up the amount of APC in the mix. Based on standard dilution ratios there are better APC's out there but most of them are twice the price. Meg's D101 works well on my vehicle that are well maintain.
Pros- No harsh chemical scent. - Half the price of other APC's
Cons- Not very strong at standard dilutions
