To add a little consumer advice and help for you, we thought we’d review some car cleaning products. If you love your car/s then you love them being clean.
This week we focused on a range of products by Simoniz. We wanted to focus our attention on five products which are key aspects of any car clean, namely:
Wash – Simoniz Shampoo & Carnauba Wax (retails at £4-6)
Wax & Polish – Simoniz Quickshine Detailer (retails at circa £4-7)
Wheel – Simoniz Ultracare Alloy Cleaner (retails at circa £5)
Tyre – Simoniz Back to Black Tyre Shine (retails at circa £5-7)
Dashboard – Simoniz Gloss Dash Shine (retails at circa £4-6)
We wanted to test these products on a car that we are looking to sell, an Mazda MX5. Top tip: If you are looking to sell a car, make sure you clean it as good as you can. It makes all the difference when trying to sell it.
To give you a perspective on the products tested we are featuring a before and after video, so you have a good idea, and our thoughts. The car we are cleaning today is the legendary Mazda MX5. Perfect for cleaning as it’s nice and small.
Using Simoniz Shampoo & Carnauba Wax
It did an okay job. It’s hard to tell with a shampoo I think. They are all a much of a muchness. We give this product a 5/10.
The Wax & Polish
Simoniz Quick shine Detailer
Easy to apply, removes minor scuffs and tar, leaves the car with a nice gloss/ shine and is very easy to use/ apply. We give this product a 10/10
Simoniz Ultracare Alloy Cleaner
Easy to apply. Seemed to get more dirt off the alloys. It does what I says. We give this product a 7/10.
Simoniz Back to Black Tyre Shine
This product does what it says on the tin. Only thing I’d like to see moving forwards is a non-aerosol option. Does it really need to be in an aerosol can Simoniz? We give this product a 9/10, but if in recyclable packaging 10/10.
Simoniz Gloss Dash Shine
Again this product does what it says on the tin. Only thing I’d like to see moving forwards is a non-aerosol option. Does it really need to be in an aerosol can Simoniz? We give this product a 9/10, but if in recyclable packaging 10/10.
All in all, I liked the Simoniz products, they did a good job, so they get a big thumbs up from me.
