Muc-Off Ubershine

  Ollie's Silver Cup
Afternoon! I thought I'd write a short review of a product I've used for the first time today; Muc-Off Ubershine shampoo.

A couple of days back I was asked by a mate to give it a go, as his place are currently/thinking about selling it.

First thing to notice, the 'subtle' bright pink appearance;


For the past however many month I've been using dodo juice supernatural shampoo when cleaning the cup and think it's great. Considering the Muc-Off is at the cheaper end of car cleaning chemicals, I thought I'd be disappointed with the finish/result.

I was very much mistaken, I'm amazed by the results; especially when considering it's available for about £6-7 a bottle online. It's one of those products that very much 'does what it says on the tin' by leaving the car with a deep and very high gloss looking shine.

Opening the bottle, although given it's bright pink appearance I was half expecting it smell like bubblegum, it smells of apples! Given the fact it was pretty cold outside, I was happy to read that it should be diluted with warm water. :approve: It produced lovely thick suds, which is something I personally prefer with shampoos.

So, I cleaned the car using exactly the same technique I would normally. I snowfoamed first and then cleaned the car using the Muc-Off product and a wash mitt. The only downside, was that it doesn't dilute as much as some other products (such as the dodo juice supernatural) meaning you have to use more product; however, given the price of it, that's no concern in all honesty.

As above, very impressed with the results. I pulled the car into the garage and got a few reflection shots to share;




So, if you want a shampoo that's bright pink, smells of apples and is reasonably priced, I'd strongly consider this one. :star:

Looks like a good finish from it I used to use muc-off on my mountain bikes never knew they did car stuff.

Look I on side of the bottle in the pic it ses ph balanced formula so at a guess I think it is :)
Would have been my first question, but answered above.

Looks good chap. Let us know how it continues to perform.

As mentioned above, it states it's a ph balanced formula

It also says that it contains no harmful acids, CFC's or solvents :)

We are in a hard water area Todd.

I get horrid watermarks..luckily it doesnt show up that much on silver! On the old Clio it was shocking.

I live in a hard water area too.

One of things I noticed about this muc-off stuff is that it contains water softeners to reduce/eliminate spots.

You don't generally get them on silver all that much though, so I can't say how well this works.

But they are in a soft water area!?!?! ????????

Ours around here is also very limey (is that even a word!)

Can you use this as a snowfoam? As i use it in the bucket at the minute but ive just purchased a pressure washer :)
Nice use of the search. The model CS user.

You can technically use any shampoo as a foam. They might not stick or foam as well. I'd stick to tried and tested foams.

always search first fella ;-)

Seen you post on quite a few detailing threads, what foam would you recommend?..going to visit the local halfrauds tomorrow after work
Good man. Foam wise I would suggest Meguiars Hyper Wash but it's only available online (unless you live close to an online shop's warehouse!). Also good as a pH neutral shampoo and APC.
