What cleaning products do people use?

Post by Mick_Marsh » Sat 04 Jun, 2011 5:09 pm

I was going to use bees wax on the woodwork of the W109.
Is this suitable?
Does anyone else use it?
What do people use to clean their "prides and joys"?

I don't know but don't imagine it will do any harm. I have redone wood with estapol after carefully removing old coatings (no sandpaper which quickly destroys the thin veneers) and buffed to a high gloss, but really not sure if that is how they should look and if your wood is pretty good the bees wax would give it a more subtle look.

General cleaning I just use a fairly normal car wash, have used the clay block stuff and then a good quality polish and finish with carnuba wax and that seems to last for ages with just the odd car wash.

Under bonnets etc I still think the best thing is a kero gun on the compressor which cleans and leaves a slight oily film on the alloy etc, but I have to admit i don't do that much anymore due to the stink etc. These days normally just degreaser/truck wash and high pressure water blaster.

On all plastic, rubber, vinyl, leather or allmost anything inside or outside that I want to clean and protect from sun damage I use 303,
Non toxic and leaves a natural finnish, not to shiny which I like, its great on your tyres to I like it better than other tyre dressings that leave the the tyres looking to shiny.
