Car Cleaning materials

For those of you that like to keep your BM all sparkly and clean, I thought I'd recommend a visit to cleanyourcar.co.uk

Bought from here a few times, always 100% and offers great advice for those that are interested in detailing.

Nothing to do with me, just a happy customer!

For the dash etc... bit stuck on what to get. Just bought a bunch of stuff to test out, including the No Rinse thingy and a bunch of MF towels (no access to tap where the car is).

Just wondering what to do with the interior dash and other plastics (I have lots of plastic in the CSL lol)

Dash, I dont use anything apart from a duster or a lightly damp cloth when it's showing signs of dirt.

For stuff like the sill plastics I use groom (get it in Halfords) which foams up nice and cleans deep into the textured groves. Plus leaves an apple scent.

I personally hate the shiney dash look thats why I use basics on the inside.

Groom is also a very good carpet/upholestery cleaner aswell.

Just a lightly damped microfibre to wipe all the plastics down with - the leather gets Auto-Glym leather cleaner. Didn't need to use it much in the 'vert as it had black seats, but this fox red stuff in the M3 discoulours a lot more and needs cleaning more regularly

303 Protectant for the interior plastics - it gets rid of more dirty marks than Autoglym equivalent and it doesn't leave it shiny.

Also, try PolishedBliss.co.uk who do some things for less than cleanyourcar.

Car-Lack 68, it's a German product and a little goes a long way, isn't shiny and has a UV protectant in it.

Cleanyourcar are more expensive for some products but I use them as you get discount ie. they do a points reward system and they're localish for me ie. Yorkshire. Some others charge more for postage.
