    I tried a expensive version of this product last year and thought it was good.........then when I saw Aldi were doing a similar product for about half price I decided to try it...and I bought a couple of the sprayer bottles 750 ml.

    In a word its brilliant.

    Next time its in Im going to buy a few of them.
    Its also fantastic on plastics and glass.
    very impressed.

    Anyone else use it ?

    I also use it (and I've used one off Ebay) and yes it's great. Removes black streaks easily as well as cleaning and polishing and no it does not scratch. Just make sure you use a really good quality micro-cloth.

    I always keep a couple of bottles in the van. I wash (?) it a panel at a time without all the fuss of buckets of water etc. A couple of cloths and it comes up a treat.
    I've tried both the original and the Aldi version and both work, but Aldi is cheaper.

    Another make which regularly appears(ed) on Ideal World TV Channel is Greased Lightning Showroom Shine. I only mention it as the Youtube video shows how these cleaners work..

    That was my first reaction.........but the folks next door were using it on a caravan and on their car.......and amazingly it just works.

    its a waxy liquid that just lifts of the dirt.
    I expect I wouldnt do it with thick mud...but for a swift clean its impressive.

    I use it. It's quite effective, especially on the thick coating of dead flies which we collect in the summer.:thumb:

    £4.99.

    well worth it .a third of the price of some brands and just as good if not better.

    Not so much thinking rubbish………. but at the end of the day if you just rub this stuff over the paintwork you WILL scratch the paint:Eek!:

    There is no such thing as an easy ride when it comes to car cleaning…………. still requires plenty of water and effort :Wink:

    I think if you were to suggest using this kind of stuff to the owner of a prestige or rare vintage car they would shoot you :Eek!:
