    My car was parked underneath a tree over night and in the morning i noticed some "tree debris" had dropped on the roof so i took it to my local "hand car wash" and the stupid man hoovered it off but at the same time he slightly grazed my roof which i didn't realise at the time so i was just wondering if anybody new the best way i could remove it? Thanks in advance!

    in work we use a jet wash some apc or some interior cleaner and a scrubing brush seams to give good results , did you tell the monkey who did that to your car he is waste of space mate lol thats why i never recomend anyone to go to these places they do more damage than good

    What's apc? (sorry im a noob) Have you got a link?
    No unfortunately not because i didn't realise until i got home.
    I will never go to a hand car wash again in my life.

    DON'T use a APC (all purpose cleaner) on a convertable roof.

    Why is that, Colin? I used to use a weak mix of Megs APC via foaming head and followed with a thorough rinse. Too strong?! =/

    All I reach for now is 303's conv cleaner but interested to hear why no APC.

    thats a shame but i suppose it wouldnt have dryed properly till you got home anyway so couldnt have beaten him half to death lmfao , make sure you dont they dont give a toss about your car like you have seen , the way the wash cars a terrible too i recomend anybody to do it yourself and not take your car to these people they havent a clue
