    Default Airfresher Warning

    just a warning to you not to hang your magic tree type airfresheners on the string they come on on your indicator/wiper stalks or anwhere with the same type of plastic as the steering wheel cowling round the stalks, I hung 1 there and took it off to replace and the airfreshener has softened the plastic and then peeled the top layer of the plastic off where its been sitting against.

    albeit, its just more of the same plastic underneath, but its like a sorta different shade underneath from the normal colour of the stalk surround plastic and has wee peel lines so you could peel all the top layer off if you really wanted and end up with 1 bit of stalk surround plastic thats a different shade to the whole rest of the interior trim plastic colour

    just to warn you.

    Go try the bubbledum deodiriser from www.autobritedirect.co.uk but don't put it on neat, like a numpty I did and it still makes by eyes water when I get in the car.

    Ah but they are keeping to their name as if you leave it long enough it will eat away at your car and soon your car will disappear like magic

    Jumping in & out of 5 customers cars a day which are mostly fleet cars & owners don't give a t0ss I've lost count of melted, deformed & discoloured parts of dash which have suffered the effects of various air fresheners.
    Personally will only use deodorisers applied buy trigger spray bottle to interior, not plastics.
