Re: cleaning products

Hey matt,

On the outside of my car I just go down to Car Lovers Car Wash and spray my car down with a high pressure hose then use the soapy brush the use the high pressure hose again.

On the inside I use armougard all over the vinyl and everything, it leaves a new car smell in the car, then I spray some Fabreze on the seats and floor.

Re: cleaning products

Try Meguirs Professional, it is a litle more expensive but the results speak for themselves.

Meguirs has car wash,wax,polish,wheel cleaner everything...

The best of all is the Meguirs Lambswool mit, buy it without hesitation, it's in a class of it's own

Re: cleaning products

Ultra Violet wash and wax for mine, as both mine and Dads cars are treated with Amazing Glazt (tm) Paint Sealant. Amazing stuff, comes in a big bottle, is purple and smells remarkably like kool fruits lol.

Just a word of warning for Carloves regulars - ALWAYS give the foam brush a really good run through with the high pressure hose before you use it, cos it may have stones or otehr stuff stuck in it, and stones against paint are not fun!

Re: cleaning products

For a normal wash I use polyglaze wash and wax. For a really nice job you can't go past eagle one WET Polish & Wax! It is worth a fiar bit but it is so easy to use and gives amazing results. Also I use eagle one wet tyer shine to bring those wheels back to life.

Re: cleaning products

Inside the car I use Armor All spray on stuff, which seems to make it all look nice. I also use it on the bumpers and door handles outside the car. Due to water restrictions, I haven't been able to wash the car at home for quite some time. Before the water restrictions were in place I used Polyglaze car washing soap. Polyglaze also make a good tyre shine, which I use if I'm going to a meet or could be bothered.

Re: cleaning products

The best way to clean the inside of the cars is to not use armorall. Dust sticks to it and it makes everything refective and glary. Also I asked an auto upholsterer and he quistions if it would save the plastic. I wet my chamios with warm water and wipe everything down, lifts dirt off straight away and is free.

Re: cleaning products

When I can wash the old girl its C-18 truck wash ........ its the only thing I can find that removes the bugs I get out here

For the inside I only use a soft cloth & a bit of soapy warm water ........ living on a dirt road it gets really yuckky inside :(
