Oh what Hairy Hands you have....mate....avatar name is relative....."Jungle".....lol
Lol Jassy, x
I'm off for a sniff....lol.
I bought a 2.5 litre container of TJ's shampoo and here is my review of it.
As a lot of you already know I'm a professional detailer so like to try out new products to find great ones that work well and good value etc, TJ's shampoo doesn't disappoint, the high foaming, nice smelling shampoo cleans very well! I've already used it on approx 5 cars and impressed with it, I've used it on waxed cars and also coated cars and it does the same amazing job on all of them.
Highly recomneded to all!!
What is the best way to buy your products as from the reviews & pricing I would certainly buy both shampoo & QD - was just about to try Bouncers Done + Dusted but not now
Saw a post that you were setting up a Website ?

Thanks Sandra - is there anyway to link the reviews to this page as it would certainly boost Toby's Products - the photos show some stunning shines.
Toby will take the reviews from here over as soon as he can Neil
I will PM you .
I bought TJ's Shampoo and Detailer on the strength of the feedback & photographs on this Forum.
I am not a Detailer or Expert in Car Cleaning Products - just a chap who likes a clean car.
Firstly Delivery was quick and Toby's communication was 1st rate dealing with my purchase.
I have never used a Detailer Product before but was going to buy some Done and Dusted but read a few reviews that some people had experienced some streaking so decided to try TJ's instead.
I have an Audi A6 Avant so quick a large car to wash hence looking for products which get the job done with the minimum of effort as I have 2 other cars to clean as well !
The pictures below show my car which was last polished with Poor Boy's Black + topped with Matty's Black - last done in April.
So a quick snow foam to take the dust off and I filled 2 cap fulls of TJ's shampoo and like other reviews found it good for retaining suds especially washing a large Avant - it left the car streak free when rinsed off and certainly better than Simoniz Shampoo I have been using so thumbs up for TJ's which left the paint far cleaner and with a good shine from the start.
The car is Moon light Blue and really brought out the colour.
I dried the car off and the next bit was a total new experience as I have never used a Detailer Product before.
I read the instructions on the bottle and sprayed it on the individual panel & wiped off then buffed with he same Microfibre folded in 4 sections.
Thought I was using maybe a bit too much Detailer so sprayed it onto the Micro Fibre and applied it to the paint - what do other do ?
Anyway the results were fantastic and I have never seen the colour come out so well - the Moonlight Blue always looked black but not this afternoon - a total convert to Detailing Spray and TJ's is impressive. For me no need to try any other product so next purchase will be a large bottle.
The Panoramic Roof , Privacy Glass and Black Trim between the doors ( think they call them piano ) have never been so reflective so a full convert to TJ's products.
Previously I had been polishing the car every other wash to maintain the shine I wanted - now that will all change using TJ's Shampoo + detailer.
So for me I can fully recomend both products and wish Toby all the best in his new venture.
I hope you,re well
Thank you very much for your great review

Fantastic review Neil, care looks amazing.
Moved onto Wife's car and same results - good products.
How many cars would you normally expect to get out of a 500 ml bottle ?
Got one more car to wash tomorrow so watch this space !
Probably ~20 washes, based on using 25ml per wash/bucket.
Sorry wasn't clear reading back my post - the QD - how many cars per bottle of 500 ml - is it better to spray on car or put on a micro Fibre ?
Know weather conditions will effect the spray if windy as today
Also QD every wash ?
I am not sure how many cars a bottle of QD will do, i have always bought it by the litre so never wanting to run out.
Spray on to car first is what i do but as you say on windy days you can loose a bit.
Impossible to say really, depends how heavy trigger fingered you are. I find that less is more with QD. You watch these vids by manufacturers, and the spray on shed loads per panel. I spray on fairly sparingly, wipe with MF, then buff with plush MF. QD does tend to last a long time, certainly longer than window cleaner for me.
You are certainly right less is more as the micro fibre towel was quite wet which defeats the purpose as it should be on the car !
Yes, I would say (in my opinion) if your MF was really wet, probably using too much QD
Got the hang of QD now - last car done now so time to start back on A6 again.
On an older car ( 40 years old ) the QD does all the jobs on chrome / grill etc so a huge time saving - the 500 ml bottle will do 5 cars going by my useage.
Nice one looking good. Yep, QD can be used on quite a lot. I mistakenly used on windows the other day. Worked fine
Found the QD did work well on side glass but did create a smear when it rained with wipers on and will need to cut it back with some glass cleaner to remove the greasiness. Otherwise QD is multi functional.
Love the Triumph covered in TJ,s Car Care, good work Neil.
Thanks Chris; I have to say, again, TJ's QD product is by FAR the BEST I've ever used
Here post today's ASN Stoke Audi meeting:
And sooo easy to wipe-over with a damp micro-fibre cloth after today's 75-mile Stoke Audi jaunt - as BLUEY is now about to get....
Note: might be holding onto BLUEY for a while yet; an SQ5 is 4"+ longer and 4"+ wider than the RS3; would be a squeeeeeze into BLUEY's garage space...
Bluey looks great mate.
TJ's QD product is very effective in the early morning rain, too:
Thats a wicked picture and keep using the QD.
@THQuattro was kind enough to send me a selection of his new Detailing company's products
So a little review of the shampoo
Vehicle test mule - The wife's Renault Captur GT-Line
Wash mitt of choice - Microfiber Madness Increditmitt
As previously mentioned I do like my car shampoo's to smell nice
The one sampled I would say is a tutti fruiti scent
I had no specific dilute ratio so I went with 15ml of shampoo to 15l of water, which worked really well for me
A quick blast with the power washer to foam it up a bit -
Nice smelling thick foam
Pic straight after washing the offside -
Pic after I had finished washing the car -
Prior to shampooing the car it had been pre-washed using ValetPro CPW
Decent cleaning properties & a nice smell to boot
Not a bad shampoo at all IMHO
Hi @Bristle Hound
Thanks very much for your review.
Just applied a smear of Ceramic wax to BLUEY's alloys, Toby; mega impressive; my hand slipped off the wheel just as it did with the QD...
Please do not cause your self a injury like last time as i cannot take the stress and worry ha ha.
Glad your impressed with it.
Done the A1 wheels now Toby, amazing stuff is that ceramic wax of yours, well done you.
However, just found this brilliant but brilliant video of your products:
Yes Josh done this brilliant video i am just waiting for a glass and wheel vid when the weather gets better.
A1 18-inch OEM rotor wheels (our winters) with a light coating of TJ's ceramic wax plus 50 miles and this morning's rain:
Oh, and POR15 on the OEM brake disc hubs and vents; 2-years now and no rust; OK, so a tad yellow in colour but still NO rust... Same on our TT and RS3 - why show a rust covered brake disc behind a nice set of wheels...
Looks like the Ceramic wax is doing its job.
Quality car care.
Managed to give the Audi S3 a quick maintenance wash. With TJ’s ceramic wax it makes washing an absolute pleasure. The drying process is so much easier and the gloss levels are still through the roof 6 months later!
Ceramic wax now being applied to bodywork, Toby, first to the A1 bonnet and rear-door and then, dare I say it, to BLUEY's lower quarters too! As with your QD, Toby, I don't know what it is - or care - but I sure do like it...
