    Now as a rule I would never normally touch one of these dry wash potions but I am tempted to give this a try

    I would have no issue and have used QD as a wipe over on a dusty car before but I just couldn't bring myself to use only this on a dirty car. TBH at £15 its a joke. You could use something like Demon shine at full strength for a lot less money(asda usually have it on at 2 for £5) or AS Reglaze and make up your own strength spray. Remember that these products just lubricate the dirt which you remove on a MF cloth.

    Deemon shine is ok bud but i've found that it doesn't seem to last very long. Only time I use it is in the winter when it's too cold to wax the car

    I may get a bottle to keep in the boot for shows and during my holidays to keep the car looking good.

    TBH Demon shine is only really only to give a car a temporary shine, there is no requirement for longevity. But because of its make up its ideal as a QD. My local Motor factor sells Showroom Shine, its even more expensive at £20 for 1lt.........
