I wash my car every week or two and it generally doesn't take very long except for the wheels. I have AMG 6 twin spoke wheels. After I have washed and dried the rest of the car I wash the wheels by hand using a car shampoo and a sponge. I don't care about washing the entire depth of the wheel...
Just got a used pressure washer and gave car a clean today, looking perfect. Just rinsed it with washer and dried and already looks miles better. Although I know I need to do a lot more haha
Was just wondering if you could let me know what cleaning product brands you use, and what polish/wax...

My first attempt at jet-washing shows that I need to think about this a little more.
I had the key in my pocket, and the doors kept unlocking as I aimed water near the handle. The wing mirrors were folding/unfolding and the hose being dragged under the rear opened the boot mid-wash.

Hi can anyone recommend a budget pressure washer to use in conjunction with a water butt?
I have a 240l Waterbutt and want to make good use.
Will the water leave marks on my car or is rainwater better than the tap water (note we get hard water here)
Also any recommendation for snow foam liquids?
Guys I need an advise please.
My BOSCH VARIO PERFECT washing machine doesn't show any sign of life. :dk: When I want to turn it on no lights come on, nothing. Machine is new but because I bought it from an unofficial dealer as an ex display model it came without Bosch warranty. :wallbash:
Fastidious washing and polishing of cars isn't my thing but I would like to keep my latest car looking nice.
Although I've progressed beyond a bucket, old sponge and some washing up liquid, I only really want to wash the car and give it one coat of polish.
I am not interested in spending a...
Just washed my car - starting with the wheels. Utterly filthy, black with dust, mud, poo, you name it. Cleaned the spilt veg oil off with Simoniz Alloy Cleaner (black bottle - seems to be an end of line product). OK so far?
Yeah - so I tried it on the spilt oil around the filler cap. Wow -...
I have, as you know spent many happy an hour (day!) cleaning my car and have contemplated how to move to the next level given that whilst most people regard my car "as new" I still know where the micro and indeed less micro scratches are.
My local car cleaning place (Sgt Bills!) will wash...
As this forum is the fount of all knowledge I'll throw myself upon its collective wisdom.
Our old Hotpoint washing machine is terminally ill, if the one inch of play in the drum bearing and the accompanying noise is anything to go by. Replacing the bearing would seem to involve a certain...
Don't know if there is another thread on this, (I couldn't find one)
What do you all use for a general wash, wax, etc. including wheels.
What is recommended as the so called best product for your money.
Leather seat, cloth seats, carpets. Etc.
Just a note of caution for anyone using a high pressure washer from a water butt supply prompted by the recent Edinburgh outbreak.
Normal mains water is quite sterile, however any water collected from outside as in rain butts will obviously not have had any treatment. Warm weather allows the...
