    A 5 hour clean

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi all.

    Woke up this morning with wife out in work and though I would give my a good old clean.

    I've read online about how using washing up liquid was a quick way to remove old layers of wax. So I thought I would give it a good old wash with good old fairy washing up liquid.

    I could instantly tell the difference between that and ordinary car shampoo. Once washing I rinsed with water and then washed again with some good old Tesco car wash. I then hand dried.

    I dug out my trusty car polish and began applying and buffing by hand and then went around again with some simoniz car wax.

    End results below.

    Must say I feel rather happy with the results.
