    Hi was just wondering if somebody could point me in the direction of how to clean my matt wrapped mercedes. I'm in fear of damaging the wrap using products that won't be sensitive on the wrap.
    Would be a big help if anyone is "in the know".
    Thanks.

    It's a vinyl wrap, just wash it as normal.

    Try Google...there's bound to be something very expensive you could use. But soap and water will probably do the trick. Don't use a rotary polisher after wards though.

    I've always wondered hiw to clean these wraps properly as the wrap has no protection unlike a metal body. Always thought they would end up like those PVC conservatory roofs, full of tiny scratches that give a blurred appearance

    It's a pity that you didn't get some off cuts then you could have tested anything.

    Thanks a lot i just used warm water and a sponge did the job as it wasn't too dirty. As for the company who wrapped it was no answer this morning when I tried.
    Thanks again.
