Hi, Just picked up a bottle at the middlesbrough store, huge bottle, should last ages, also the wax was the same price (same brand).
There were lots of other reduced items, happy bargain hunting to all!

great value...voted hot

Yes i Bought it aswell. Loads of Bottles at this Price in the Sainsburys Petrol Station.:thumbsup:

This stuff is ****!
I have about 2 litres, that I bought cheap, in my garage and it just doesn't get my cars clean. When I complained to the manufacturers, all they did was send a sample bottle size to replace the 3 litres that I'd bought.
In my opinion Turtle Wax is a better product.

bargin price !

It's a budget product, it's *always* on offer somewhere. Nothing special, does the job ok though.
If it's not getting your car clean, then either you don't know how to wash your car properly, or you have a shïte car.

morrisons have it for £1.69 (500ml with 100% free making 1 litre) but its been 100% extra free for the last 6 years! lol

Try using Lynx Shower Gel to wash your car. Sounds wierd, but excellent results. Give it a go. Your car still looks good and shiny 2-3 weeks after washing.

Auto Glym ++

Wilkinson's have this deal on also, as i bought some on Sunday.

I've always just used fairy liquid in hot water for getting for getting dirt off car, although I'm (clearly) no expert

£1.65 in Wilkos at the moment.

Ohhh, big no no. Containts a tiny amount of salt so not good for steel bodywork.

Splash out the £1.75. If you want to increase the time between washes, wax it & watch all the raindrops bounce and roll off the bodywork. Pay special attention to problem areas such as wheel arches.

Second the Auto Glym opinion, great stuff.

good to know. thanks

I got a brand new car a few weeks ago and haven't given it its first wash yet, so you've put me on the right track!

Will have to ask the wife what she uses to wash my car and if she wants me to get some for her :whistling:

lol you could phone her mobile while she's doing it & let her know if she missed any bits - you probably have a good vantage point from the sofa.

Not to mention the fact it famously breaks through grease so it will remove all the oil on places that you require it like window wiper hinges and door handles etc. Autoglym stuff is good as the rain runs off the paintwork and windows nicely.

I find a tiny bit of petrol on a rag is really good for getting off the bits of road tar and stuck on dirt.

It's also excellent for taking off those "DO NOT PARK HERE" permanent window wrecking stickers if anyone has ever got one of them. (I haven't but I helped a friend take his off using a little bit of petrol) Also- vinegar cleans the interior windows well, smells a bit naff but it works good

WD40 is also very good for window gunk.

I use AutoQuest Wash & Wax 1 litre from the Pound shop. Much better than Tesco brand and others. I think the company Tetrosyl of Bury Lancs bottle for other supermarkets.

I use that as well, brilliant product! Works a treat although i did buy some of this for the hubby on his birthday last wk, thought id splash out :thumbsup:

woolworths also do triplewax cheap with 100% extra free

I've washed my cars in fairy liquid for years ;-)
It doesn't take long for them to rust away, but my hands are as soft as a babies bum! :-D

I've voted hot for the price, but I've used various cheap car shampoo's and I end up using a third of a bottle in a bucket to get it to foam up for just a few minutes then it goes back to being water again, hopeless. I've used AutoGlym ever since. It may be a bit more expensive, but I only need a couple of small cap fulls in a bucket and it foams up really well, cleans the car great and keeps it looking that way.

Okay, okay!
I said I used Fairy Liquid but did also say that I'm no expert.

For what it's worth I've never had any rust or corrosion on any of my cars - including 2 I just traded in towards new car, one of them 7 years old and one of them 8 years old. No rust whatsoever, including underneath or in wheel arches.

I totally accept it isn't recommended and will avoid doing so in future but, equally, a little bit of knowledge (but not a lot) re. it having some salt content can lead to total exaggeration of harm it would do.
