    Default Waterless stuff

    As im a touch bored at work today, decided to flick the TV on, not a great deal on apart from "showroom shine" on Ideal world shopping channel. I've got some which i bought 6 months ago, when it was called Proshine, i Think its great stuff, was easy to use and only took 30 mins to do the car when it was really bad!

    Although, dont use it anymore as i spent a fortune on getting some proper detailing equipment which does a far better job!

    One thing that bothered me was they said it doesn't scratch or create swirls, but i've always found this hard to believe, does anyone know exactly how it works, would you advise using it or not?

    I find it only doesnt cause swirling if you change your microfibre cloth every couple of minutes, as soon as your cloth is dirty it scratches...notice how the person demonstrating it only uses a cloth one before they get a new one....it does work well and leaves a nice shine but i only use it on a few parts of the car these days....works wonders on the inside glass!

    As i thought, I've never used it on the vec, used it on my old car and it looked good but it wasn't black and black seems to show up every mark and swirl.

    my dad uses something similar..might even be the same stuff..he got it off the tv anyway... wouldnt fancy applying anything like that before its washed..just think of all the dust/grit being rubbed into the paint!!

    I'd sooner wash it mate. It may well work but i don't fancy it, especially on a black car.

    I think it's great, not least becouse I can only stand for a limated time.
    I take the worst of it off with water first, lower wheel arch, sill. Once there is a coat on the car, the muck, break dust and bugs just wipe off. No swirling yet. Mind, it rarely gets that dirty.
