    Default Cleaning - 50 Budget...Advice Please

    Cleaning the Vectra this weekend. But, I need some new cleaning gear. So, I have a budget of 50 for cleaning products (lots of swirl marks etc to clean up).

    What do you recomend best for this budget as a starter?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Megs Deep Crystal 1,2,3 system - available from halfrauds. 2 buckets, lambswool wash mitt, waffle weave microfibre to dry and maybe a wheel brush if you've got fiddly wheels.

    That should come to about your budget and do everything you need

    Deffo get a washmit.

    I was sceptical about those but bought one anyway! I was impressed!

    Mit all the way for me now.

    For washing, I like the Autoglym body conditioner.

    For wax you will not go wrong with Collinite.

    The Megs 1-2-3 is good, I used that on the wife's car, to get ris of some swirls and light scratches. The only down side is durability so megs 123 topped off with a good wax would be perfect
