    Default budget valet kit for a tenner

    right i was asked by a friend at work, if i could put together a cleaning kit for him nothing fancy . so with asda having a few specials last few weeks i put this together for him .




    all this cost me a tenner

    to see how good/bad these were i tried them on his old merc which ive cleaned for him a few times as he has a badback .
    all the products were ok but the wheels cleaner i would say is a bit weak .but at only 1 pound not that bad the car came up nice and clean and he was happy with it . i would add that you would need a few microfibre cloths and a drying towel (but you could just use a couple off microfibres to dry it saving more money )asda did have 15 for 4 pounds . a few pics off the dirty now clean merc . khalid







    and cleaned







    this car was last cleaned by me in the end off oct and i put collinite 915 on it then and it was still beading with just a good hose down .. thanks .khalid

    i use very cherry on mine as i buy it in 5 ltrs at a time
    this was only for a friend and to see if i could buy a kit that would clean your car for not much money . i will be comparing it with some zanio z2 that i put on one off his panels as a test to see how the cheaper one lasts . khalid

    Just remember if you wax your wheels, that stuff will strip it all off and you will have no protection there at all.

    not bad Khalid.........but I expect alot of the finish is down to the prep work you had previously done on the car ..albeit back in October.
