    Hi
    I bought one of these to remove very stubborn marks on the side of my van i think they were traffic film backed on by the sun. I have tried several times washing and other products but the Magic sponge worked great. Black streak marks just disappeared as well with little effort and it cleaned the handles on the garage and caps on the water very well

    I used to use them in the caravan until I noticed that the white was coming off after quite a bit is use. So keep an eye on that. Won't use it on the MH but I use them at home they are very good.

    You mean the "magic" sponges that are abrasive and remove the surface along with the dirt bugs or grime ?

    Yes, be very careful using those, very abrasive, better off using Autosmart G101, use as directed and rinse well and wax after (y)

    Stubborn dead flies and muck that have been left for ages are best removed with a towel soaked in water as hot as you can stand. They / it needs softening up . Place the dipped towel over the muck and leave for a minute or two.

    Of course its best to clean muck off soon as possible but not always practical.

    But please do not scrub them off with what is in effect a mild scouring pad.

    By all means buy expensive products to spray on to soften muck up... Me ? I keep gallons of the stuff in the tap with H on it (y)

    See this on other forums over a year ago, after trying some on our saucepans and seeing all the fine scratches no way would I use them on my van.

    I was selling those things about 12 years ago.. Not with the Flash label but an obscure maker..
    They used to be £2 for a pack of 10 back then.. How much are the Flash ones ?

    BTW, please be aware they are very abrasive.. Do not use them on paint !!
