    Default Why does it take so long......

    For me to clean my car?
    2 hours just to wash, chamois, & clean the glass!!!...........an hour to wax half a car!!! ( had to call it a day then as other things to do ), and besides, my poorboys nattys wax smelt great for the first 10 mins, then made me feel quite sick! what a sickly smell!
    Can ayone recomend something for the plastic trim, both inside and out? ( preferably something that will make the inside smell nice?)

    I had to clean two Vectra,s this morning, Mind you I did not wax them this time. But it can take what seems ages to do, but the car,s do look better for all the hard effort.

    I usually wash it just before it rains, avoiding the need to rinse the turtle wax off.

    Deffo AG Bumper Care for the outside. Inside I use a damp MF and the VXR Matt dash cleaner (made by Sonax I think) every now and again.

    Took me 6.5 hours last time:
