Your top five bargain products

Although itís nice to have some premium products on the shelf whatís your top five bargain products, here are a few of my favsÖ.

Valet Pro Citrus bling (£8.50)
Lots of uses, such as fast wax, paint cleanser, clay lube but really shines as a quick detailer, smells great and isnít smeary like some QDís and looks great on glass can be diluted as much as 1/10 with water meaning you could get 5l out of it.

Collinite 476 (£15.00)
A great winter wax, really durable with superb beading, also great for use in engine bay, metals and on wheels.

Auto Glym Super resin polish (£10.00)
A great all in one, polish, gloss enhancing glaze with plenty of fillers to hide minor swirls and paint sealant, every time I use this Iím impressed with how well it performs. And since the new formula came out I have seen protection last 3+ months even in the horrible weather we have been having, worth seeking out 3 for 2 deals in B&Q and Halfords.

Demon Shine (£3.00)
Great for use as a drying aid, cheap as chips when brought from the supermarket when on offer. Makes drying the car so much faster and minimises water spotting, use mixed 1/5 in a pump sprayer sprayed all over the car then use an open hose to sheet the water off leaving less to mop up with a drying towel.

Sonus SFX4 (£12.00)
A great synthetic paint sealant, once applied makes the paint feel so smooth and slippery, good at repelling dirt and doesnít have the cold sealant look to it, not a great big bottle for the money, but should still last a good year or so unless youíre using it on many cars.

Bargains for me last few weeks were a lot of 3m cleaners on the 3m website half price plus extra 10% off too , window cleaner was really good not had time to use the rest yet ...

Auto finesse lather car shampoo I got from a fellow detailer, bargain and its defo the best car wash shampoo I've had by miles....

Also got some auto finesse soul wax which is a easy wax to apply and take off ...and smells good enough to eat...

Some 3m clay bars on eBay ,think I got three for £7 odd inc postage ,and they are I tryed and tested clay bar from a lot of detailers and work perfect...


Noddle mitt from Asda was a bargain too think about £3 , and feels the same as expensive one...

Polished bliss had some cracking offers on a lot of car cleaning stuff , plus free postage on anything too...
