I’ve used this on oil spills on paving and on cleaning up dirty bicycle drivetrain. It worked great on both occasions. Best used by decanting some into an old jam jar and using a brush to apply.
I recommend this product!

Easily the best shampoo Halfords sell. Great lubrication, foams up beautifully, lasts ages and doesn't strip wax. It also smells wonderful.

If you need to make a car look great to sell then look no further. However, the product is chock full of fillers so the shine you get immediately after having applied it won't last long at all. Literally a week or 2. If it's for your pride and joy go for another product/s. Perhaps a polish to mask the swirls (AutoGlym Super Resin Polish) and then a pure wax to lock in the shine and protect the paintwork. If you want a decent all in one product - try AutoGlym Extra Gloss Protection or the excellent Zymol Cleaner Wax (which also smells of bananas).
I recommend this product!
I like:good shine......
I don't like as much:for about 5 minutes

As an 'all in one' polish and wax it does a good job. It's easy to apply but it takes a LOT of effort to remove even if you do one panel at a time. I wouldn't use it on warm bodywork or you'd be there for a month of Sundays trying to buff it off. Good product though. Less dust than the Zymol Cleaner wax but nowhere as easy to use. It adds good colour depth and lasts a good couple of months if topped up with a detailer spray such as Dodo Juice 'Red Mist' from time to time
I recommend this product!

My experience of using this is that you need a huge amount in the bucket and even then it does a poor job. I ended up throwing half of it away. Absolutely nothing compared to the Zymol shampoo or decent products such as Dodo Juice 'Born to be Mild' shampoo or Gloss It.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This is great if your wheels are in a complete state but it's incredibly acidic so if used regularly will strip lacquer and make a complete mess of your wheels. Use with care!!

I’ve used this stuff for years for when I can’t afford the time to do the whole separate polish/wax routine. It goes on and polishes off very easily. It is a bit dusty but it doesn’t bother me a great deal. By all means let the product dry on the paint but don’t let it bake on or removal is made marginally more difficult. If you like car detailing in direct sunlight I’d recommend stick to stuff like Poorboys which is designed with hotter climes in mind. This product won’t last as long as a dedicated hard wax but then you shouldn’t expect it to. As a ‘supermarket’ product I can’t rate it highly enough. Smells like bananas too!
I recommend this product!
I like:easy of use, smell, longevity
I don't like as much:dusty

Can this product be used on charcoal metallic grey?

I can't find a similar product for dark grey paint.

Don't worry about colour matching too much - it's as much a marketing thing than anything else. You're better off with a decent non-coloured product than a coloured product like this.

If the overspray is sitting on top of the existing lacque, clay is ideal for this.

I have a dark green colour car, which has small scratches ob the paint work. what is the best way i could remove them?

I have used T-Cut Colour Fast Dark Green 500ml which is good however the effects dont last long as scratches show again after rain.
Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
T-Cut's full of filler and doesn't actually remove the defects - hence the re-appearance of the scratches. The best way is to use a dual action polisher or rotary polisher and a proper compound. Or use an abrasive which can be used by hand (athough it takes ages when working by hand!)

T-Cut Scratch Remover is specially formulated to remove light scratches, swirl marks and scuffs
 

does it also remove left overs (numbering or letters) from graphics taken off car door (Vauhall corsa-jet black)

if not what is the best product to do so?
Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
I'd use white spirit. Maybe apply some heat with a hair dryer too to soften up the adhesive. T-Cut is horrible stuff and very abrasive.

What Autoglym car polish is best for metalic paintwork

Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
Do you mean polish or wax? Polish fills paint defects and wax protects the car. If you want to mask swirls and rejuvinate the paint Super Resin Polish is the best. However, it's finish doesn't last very long. Top up the SRP with a pure wax or sealant and you'll be laughing.

As often as the car needs it. If water stops beading you need to reapply. If the car's kept in a garage and not used much you'll be able to get away with a few months perhaps. If you do big mileage and it's kept outside, not as long.
