    Engine : 1.9 cdti

    Year : 2008

    Default recommended car washing tackle

    firstly can i just say that I HATE DARK CARS!.

    all my cars have mainly been silver or light coloured but this royal blue thing is a pita to keep clean and it streaks like hell when i wash it....

    what (cheap) shampoo do you lot use?..... im not into that waxing and polishing lark cos im too lazy but i do wash it at least once a week and i just want a basic washy/waxy type thing that will do a decent job on a dark car.

    iv always used good old washing up liquid in the past and its been good enough for the other cars but not this thing lolol...

    Hi mate, this polishing and waxing lark only has to happen twice a year. If you wash your car every weekend, then I would get some good old spray wax to finish the car off with, simply spray it on and wipe it off, job done.

    As for shampoo, I have heard a lot of good things about the auto glym, one, but I use Meguiars gold class, which leaves my black cars very nice.

    Bear in mind that have a shiny car is all about the prep work.

    Its designed for washing the dishes, not your car. Do you shower using Fairy liquid, I bet not........ We've got our work cut out here Ginge, lol.

    Go to Asda they always have good deals on Car Shampoo, think they have the new Triple Wax Gold One on offer at the moment. As Ginge points out you only really need to polish and wax your car twice a year, AG SRP and Collinite's 476 will sort you out for months. Polish and Wax in March, re-wax in July and October and that will keep your car in top condition all year round. While your at Asda pick up a wash mitt too.
