    We have been using Muc-Off for a couple of years now, and find it the best product for cleaning the van. We buy ours in a 5 litre bottle from Towsure, we transfer it into a garden spray, the type that you can pump up, ready for use.

    Question, to you enlightened ones:ROFLMAO:


    How does the muc-off get on with polish, ie does it remove it like the fenwicks or not?

    Packed in the fenwicks except when Winne's exceptionaly dirty as it strips the polish off you see, not that there's is much on as we still haven't got a full coat on but it better than nowt and I made the mistake of washing with fenwicks after polish one:Doh:

    Is that for real ?:ROFLMAO:
    We used Autoglym polish on ours .
    It took over 5 hours to wash n polish it but she looks great now.

    I'm interested in the previous post too , asking if Muc off and other such shampoos would strip all the polish off , that we spent hours putting on ?
    Anyone know

    Is muc off pink BTW ? I think we may have used it before on our caravan.

    Hi Bev
    Yes Muc-Off is pink in colour.

    Does it take off polish??
    Don't really know the answer to that, we don't polish our motorhome that often. Will be trying Auto Glym Super Resin Polish next time we do, thanks for the recommendation.

    If anyone wants to check out any of the above products before risking using them on their pride and joy I unselfishly make the following offer... (Sorry, limited to Funsters only.)

    Why not come to Malvern/Shepton/Newark and try them on my Wagon first?

    Then I take all the risk if one of the products is harmful in any way... :thumb:

    JJ :Cool:

    PS won't solve the "will it take off the polish?" question unless, of course, you put some on in the first place...

    Worked for me at Knutsford...kind of....Janine took one look at my dirty van and gave me a quick demo of the dry-cleaning spray she uses. :thumb:

    Made the other 95% of the van look so bad I had to clean the rest when I got home :Doh:

    Do the bits that I cleaned stay cleaner for longer, Neil?

    It's supposed to leave a silicone layer which repels dirt.

    Busters


    Guys.. be VERY careful when dealing with Busters
    As you may or may not know M & P is part of the same firm and they are still up to their old tricks of failing to deliver and not giving money back
    Next door have just fallen foul to the tune of a little over a hundred quid :Sad:

    It is a shame really as Busters is / was a really good firm to deal with and all the folk who work there used to be top notch

    These chemicals are re branded degreasers that valeters have been using for decades, know as G101 - a caustic alkali. It should be available from most trade cleaning outlets - you can't miss it, its' flourescent yellow!

    You will also find it in shops, used as 'Kitchen Cleaner' - same stuff!

    It actually works by eating body fats, so has excellent fly removal properties, kitchen cleaning abilities and so on. Do wear gloves if using for long periods, as you will notice your fingers will shrink...yes it will soak through your skin. Trade stuff needs diluting....it is neat, the more commercialised, the more dilute it is. Don't let it dry on, as it will stain the paint.

    www.autosmartinternational.com

    Top stuff!
