Picked up a couple of bottles of the Auto Mate shampoo from Aldi also. Looks like it is made by Gliptone the Leather Care folk.

Hopefully it's decent. £2 instead of £5 on their website.

Get 7 of these cheap Chinese fake wool mitts (sorry AU ebay site, but i am sure that there will be UK equivalents). These will be like 1-1.5 pound each.

1PCS-Super-Soft-Lambswool-Car-Wash-Mitt-Deep-Pile-Cleaning-Glove-Wash
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1PCS-Sup...wAAOSwR29ZN58r

I use wet bucket method to wash my super soft car (more on that later), essentially no pads go back to the bucket and the soap is applied directly to car. I use 1 pad for roof, 1 for bonnet and front, 1 for boot and back, and 4 on each door (starting at windows and working down). These are super soft and machine washable. I have been using these for over 6 months and no visible scratches of any kind. Very highly recommended.

Cheers
Jenga

Used to use shoe polish on the tyres of my old motorbike. Worked a treat. Keep meaning to give it a go on my car tyres. Parade gloss.
