I really appreciate your kind words and glad to hear you’re getting on with the products! Thanks for the order too, that will be sorted tomorrow 🙌🏼

I love citrus blast, it’s so handy to use on interiors with stubborn stains. I used it on some Lexus seatbelts this week and the results were great.

Any after photos? My cream belts in my beemer are disgusting.

I'm after a few bits after finishing off my wheel cleaner, ironX and tyre shine this weekend so may take advantage of your 15% off first order offer 👌🏻

What washer have you got?. Will just need the relevant connector. Karcher etc.

Ordered it and the Karcher adapter, so hopefully all straight forward. Also ordered the whee cleaner. Absolutely hate cleaning cars as my Karcher lance gets stuck, drives me insane.

I don't have an after picture, but the one I posted was a 50/50. The entire seatbelt looked like the bottom half.

Thanks for your order! I'm just working through getting them all packaged today :)

@Hxrry with the stubby lance.. is it plug and play? My Snow foam lance still connect to it?

Hi mate, the stubby gun that you've ordered has got the reel adapter. You simply un-plug the hose from your karcher gun and fit it into the hose adapter, that way you can use your original reel!

What snowfoam lance do you have? You may need one of these adapters for the snowfoam bottle, which goes from the short stubby gun to the lance.

It’s an old autobrite one, and Karcher K4. I can’t get my head round it.. will I need an adapter or will that snow foam bottle plug into the stubby?

The lance you've pictured has got a karcher adapter on, which you won't need any longer! The stubby lance kits come with an adapter to convert your old lance to quick release. You'll have to unscrew that and screw in the new adapter (I'd recommend PTFE tape)

Quick release adapter is the bottom part in this picture

So I don’t have to order anything extra? Thanks for the advice mate.

All being well no. The thread should be the same on the old autobrite lance as the majority of others, meaning the adapter should fit. If by some strange reason the thread is a different size (I'm 95% sure it will be the same), then you'd need a snowfoam lance with a quick release adapter!

Hope this helps (y)

We may have a contender for my top 3 or 4 detail type sprays. Was going to wait until the weekend but getting a car ready to go out. Srp followed by their detail spray. Must say I will buy another. Easy to use, smells great and looks even for a nissan note is spot on.

Mine recieved as well mate thank you. Was pissed to find you had forgotten my tyre gel applicators… then looked at my order and found I had removed them rather than amend the quantity 😂😂😂 so you are forgiven! I’ll grab some next order. Looking forward to some overcast weather so I can clean the cars

Alright people, been a while posting on here. I washed my car before i went into hospital and when i came out about 3 weeks alter I've just preshure washed the car twice with snow foam and put the gyeon bathe+ in the snow foam bottle so i dont have to hand wash it. it's ben about 3 months since I've hand washed the car and done it today. And I've norticed quit a few water spots all over the car and didn't have those before and also I've got like dark areas of dirt all over the bonnet I'm not sure if this is down to the stickyness of the shampoo not getting washed off properly. i'm going to try and use some 5-1 purpose cleaner and spray that on the car see if it budges. Any ideas? thanks

Probably residue, i get the same with BH autofoam if i dont pressure wash it off properly. I reckon APC should get it out or a very mild polish.

Ah ok thanks for that, i thought i didn't take it properly. i'll use the APC next time I'm a bit tired now to do it. I'm getting the car professionally detailed next year, I do the best i can but I'm still recovering from a major operation so I'm taking things easy at the minute for a while, i put on some gyeon wet coat too as i know it's going to rain very soon.

My current APC I’ve been using the Gtecniq W5 Citrus APC as it’s safe for coatings and that but it’s pricey and I’ve noticed that Bilt Hamber do a good APC but it’s not Citrus based, is this one still safe for coatings? I don’t have ceramic coating other than the Easy Coat and the odd Gyeon Wet Coat

I do a citrus pre-wash that's safe to use on coatings but to be safe dilute it 50/50 (it can be diluted 1:10)
