Cheating b******s 😂

What dye is this?
Loads of people do it. I like Autoglym aerosol as it’s a bit more tame.
Autosmart do a one called midnight and it’s probably the best, but only available in trigger application and it gets everywhere. Not ideal.

Yeah pretty sure the one i borrowed from work is from autosmart, a spray type. Its perfect for cheap ass hard to cleam carpets.

Yeah it is that

I didn’t need to on this, it in the absolutely fucked stuff, a tin of satin black paint or a black carpet dye works wonders.
Less is more, but it’s a godsend on the bangers.
Have you got one of those tornado blowy things that I keep seeing TikTok detailers use? They seem to make light work of dog hair/straw/loose stuffs.

I have one. Unfortunately I dont have access to a compressor anymore so its redundant, for the moment....

I bought a cheap ebay special. As a tool, theyre fantastic. They spin a inner tube around at a billion mph which causes a 'tornado' effect to fly into the carpet. It really does dislodge a lot of crap and make light work of mats etc. The 'proper' Tornador ones, US Brand, are eyewateringly expensive. Over £80 for the basic one.

A couple of points to mention: DONT buy the cheap ebay ones. The quality is utterly s**t and it WILL fall apart rapido. My inner tube came flying out, at the aforementioned MPH, only to smash into the fresh extended leather spec 4.0 GTS I was detailing. Poo moment. Luckily, the dash was fine.
The volume of air required to keep you able to use it properly is bonkers. I dont remember the units, but its got to be over 9. 9LPH? Its got to be a big boi otherwise youre forever waiting for the compressor to catch up, or its not got enough power to be able to keep up and just blows mild air out.
Not so great for interiors. Even after hoovering a footwell, you go and blast the s**t out of it and dust and debris goes EVERYWHERE. That dash you just wiped over and dressed? Yep. Its now covered in debris. The rear seats? Those too. Neighbours cat? Looks like hes just been on the beach. I speak from experience here....

Ah, it's not for me, I've absolutely no use for one. It was more just seeing if @Daniel had one so he can cut his 8 hours with a bog brush down a little bit 😂
I have had them in the past but to be honest as Nancy points out, they make a s**t load of mess. Which you end up having to clean up again.

The last one I actually paid for was stupid money, £260 iirc?? From Autosmart. Then when that broke I bought a £30 one off eBay and it was the same just a different colour. 😂

I've used one and completely agree - great for crevices where you can't necessarily get a hoover attachment to it, but surely suck not blow to clear mess (heyoooo).

Ran out of BH Touchless a while ago and struggled to find any anywhere.

Turns out they've tweaked the strength now, doubling it's concentration (max 2% PIR instead of 4% previously).

Only available in 1L currently though.

How did you get that, I looked and they are £2.38 each lol
It's £9.95 / 1L bottle now. Was it 2.38 each ?

Do you find it that good that you ordered 10L ? I bought 5L a year ago, after reading people saying how good it is, but I found it average, or even bellow that.

From £2.38 but that was the smaller size I think.

The car chem pre wash I bought when they did that flash sale thing is really good.

Used to be a snow foam chap but limited space on the drive I have been using citrus pre wash.

The neighbours albeit really nice would see his ass if his mercedes was covered In foam lol.
