I've only washed Dubster by hand once & that was last summer.


That's my collection of Autoglym Products, also use Fast Glass

Car was washed at the weekend using a rare product called the generous brother-in-law I've no idea what he used to clean it but it briefly looked good although was back to being muddy again after less than 24 hrs

It's not really worth spending hours cleaning the car when your commute consists of 15 miles of farm roads

Dubster just gets dirty from going along the Dual Carrigeways, that an Seagulls in Ayr like to use Dubster for Target practise.

Gave him a quick jet wash the other day 8mins for £2

On my punto, I've used:

Meguiars:
NXT detailer - Avoid, utter crap
Trim and dash restorer - actually quite good
Liquid Gold Shampoo - No complaints
Liquid Caranuba Wax - Good but a cnut to buff
Hot Rims (The tyre stuff) - Very good

Neilsen
Super 'A' Sheen - Not that good
APC - Quite an inferior product

Autoglym
Interior shampoo
Bodywork shampoo conditioner
Super Resin Polish
High Definition Wax
Rubber and Vinyl cleaner
Fast Glass
Bumper and trim gel
Might have forgot some others

Turtle Wax
Tyre gel (The "nano tech" stuff)

RainX

I've also used Meguiars clay bar, Turtle wax polish and a couple of other cheaper products on my other cars.

I feel sorry for you guys that live up farm roads ! Must be a nightmare trying to keep the cars clean !

I stopped using they jetwash things when i thought about the amount of sh*t that will be stuck to the brushes

Ive heard about the hot rims and the feedback i got was that its the best stuff to buy considering the price of it. Ive got a clay bar too just no lube for it so i tried using water and it worked enough to get the main crap off the bottom of the 4 doors. Havent used it since as i plan on getting another bar and some lube and in the better weather just abusing it so the cars spotless.

What do you guys find best for putting tar remover on as i just use and old towel as its rough so when the tar remover soaks into that its brilliant for getting anything off. But of course i know thats not what your meant to use so i just wanted to know what you guys think best and ill give it a try ?

Plus cheers for all the replies ! Got a good wee discussion going

I might look into that !

Do you guys just soak a cloth in it and use that to take the tar off ? Or a micro-fibre cloth ?
