Your favorite detailing products?

What are your favorite products for detailing (brands and/or specific products) and why? I did a quick search and did not see that specific inquiry.

I put Simple Green industrial (it's purple in color) in a spray bottle and got the carpet pretty soaked. Waited about 10 minutes for it to soak in.

Then used a cheap upholstery hot water vac with only hot water in it (no other cleaning chemicals) and cleaned it normally. Looks like new. The water was the blackest I've ever seen.

Then I got a ozone generator for about $80 (Enerzen 3500mg) and ran it with a window cracked for two cycles. The funky old car smell is almost gone. I have the ozone generator running in my house now (no pets) just to freshen the place up.

Wax - Good Ole Turtle Wax, straight wax no cleaner mixed with hot water and applied with a soft cloth, machine buffed. Plastic interior parts - Armorall, just not the glossy finish believe its called natural. Used Groits Garage leather cleaner for years until I was offered a BOGO on Peak leather conditioner. Stuff is amazing and never went back.

Griots and Chemical Guys are my choices. We also carry other brands and are happy to answer any specifics about what products work best.
