    How do you wash your microfibre cloths ?

    Think main problem was not using any detergent, so they all came out contaminated and greasy. Washed them last week with polish pads at 40 with Surf ..and microfibres are clean no residue . Polish pads appear to clean but stained from black hole and nattys . Which is fine because they'll only...

    How do you wash your microfibre cloths ?

    yeah I saw on youtube on a big American detailers company to not use fabric softener as it actually coats all the fibres to be / look fluffy but makes them less absorbent. But read on forum post to not use detergent as it degrades and hardens the fibres. I'm thinking , some washing powder is...

    Beading dirty drying marks after rain

    Thanks Fran, yes looks more to be dirt/ earth that's either settling on the beading or same but possibly caught in rain on way down if that's possible. Also an old building has been getting demolished and crushed down for a new building site about 1/4 mile away so I think the air is much more...

    Beading dirty drying marks after rain

    As header says.. after it's been raining I'm getting beading shaped dirty drying marks. It can be a bit windy in my car park with dust/ earth being either blown around from the surrounding shrub beads or just dirty rain. Anyway as much as I admire the beading when it been raining on my car it...

    Summer Autoglym Super Resin Polish & HD Wax

    Hi, posted a week or so ago about Ultra Deep shine. It gets ok results , but an awful lot of elbow grease. Can leave white residue and it's not fully a wax and doesn't last that long. I'm going to to try Chemichal Guys blacklight and V7 , it looks so much quicker and easier to apply than UDS...

    AG Ultra Deep Shine, decent results .

    Thanks Chrissy, think I'll be buying some `poorboys dark car kit or `Chemichal guys blacklight which looked super easy to apply compared to the elbow grease needed for UDS. And maybe a wax over Blacklight then the V7 , and top ups with v7 after.

    I posted a wee while back about UDS . Today I got a full day to clean and polish and much happier with the results. Pretty good reflections and a huge difference from last time. I do feel it's quite hard to work with and prob using way too much . But to get a decent coverage I feel you have too...

    Newbie polishing - autoglym Ultra Deep Shine , white residue after wash

    Thanks for advice folks @Rich76 ...great reflections. One thing that bothers me about getting a reflective finish on `phantom black is you loose any look of the pearlesance and they look more solid black - is there any way to keep light refracting , are there any waxes , sealants that contain...
