    My modest collection though I need to buy another chest for the MF towels. Oh, and the wonder wheels stuff is for the kid as they 'detail' their bikes at the same time as I wash mine. They have their own Karcher snowfoam Lance (you can see it next to Megs buckets, they use my BH snowfoam) along with a set of two buckets, Autoglym shampoo and a box for their AG and Halfrauds multipack MF towels

    @jassyo06 I'm assuming you meant wash the car? Or does your cat also get a snow foam and two bucket wash?!

    I've tried the left handed typing before and it's as if your seeing a keyboard for the first time hunting out the letters!

    I agree but I have Gboard installed on my iPhone and I love the glide typing, makes it so much easier and fun to type regardless of whether your shoulder is injured or not

    So just tried my recent purchases for the interior: VP leather soap (applied with VP leather brush) and Colourlock shield (applied with foam applicator pad). First impressions are good, although the soap does not have a pleasant odour, I’m hoping that subsides otherwise my interior is going to smell like toilet cleaner. The shampoo applied nicely with the brush and then buffed to a nice finish when drying with a MF. The colourlock applied and spread very easily with the applicator pad and dried quickly with no odour. My seats weren’t really that dirty as the car is only 5 months old, but I’ll see the finish better tomorrow when the light is better. As long as the smell doesn’t hang around I’d say it’s a thumbs up, but I’ll judge this over the next few days.

    There's worse smelling leather cleaners than leather soap of which l find smells OK, Gyeons leather cleaner smells rather clinical not the best, but l found the Gyeon leather cleaner leaves a better matte finish on my steering wheel than the leather soap, and it's the exact opposite on the drivers seat, where valet pro leather soap leaves a far better finish.
    I have Valet pro leather soap
    Furniture clinic leather cleaner and its anti friction coating, gyeon leather cleaner, Swissvax leather cleaner and the anti friction coating, Colour lock mild leather cleaner and out of them all valet pro is the best at cleaning

    Smell seems to have gone now so I’m happy with it. Strange cos the wife actually liked the smell. Cleaning wise it seems to have done a good job but like I say my seats weren’t really dirty even after 5 months. Happy with the two products though so thanks for the advice, I see this probably as about a 4 times a year job, I tend to wipe down any marks as they happen with baby wipes (everything free baby wipes so no chemicals in em), so everything stays fairly clean.

    Any advice on products and techniques for my mats? I’m gonna give them a thorough clean and put them away for the winter soon and change to my winter mats.

    The Velour car matts? I never use them mate they're chucked in the boot as soon as l get a car, l just use the fitted rubber one 365, but to clean the velour matts l would use the likes of Vanish upholstery/fabric cleaner then treat them with some dirt repellent solution like the gtechniq one as your a fan of this brand

    Haha fair dos! I’m pretty ocd with most things but I do like the carpet mats, especially as they have the nice red stitching.-That would work well with the rest of your red bits too....
