Poorboy's

Natural Look Dressing.

Not far off finishing the bottle, I'm quite impressed with it, it works brilliantly on some plastics and ok on others.

Just wondering if anyone knows of anything else as good (but cheaper) or something even better ?

Don't mind if it comes in 5 lts either.

The Poorboys is nice but it does have limited cleaning abilities so cannot compete with a clean with a dedicated cleaner first. The under rated Optimum Interior Protectant is nice but my favourite is the Gtech C6 matte dressing. It has a lower gloss level than the Poorboys and is much more durable.

Thanks, I've actually got this but yet to try it out !
This though, is probably (I'm assuming) at the higher end of product price wise.

Anyone know of anything by Autosmart or Autoglym etc ??

I use Autoglym interior shampoo. It is about £4.50 and it has very good cleaning abilities.

I use it as a shampoo, i.e. spray onto surface, wipe with damp cloth, and it lifts out dirt etc.

But if dash is already quite clean, I spray onto surface, and wipe with a dry cloth - and this leaves a super matt finish.

I use SLEEK from EZ Car Care.

Cleaner and dressing all in one. Cleans great and not too over-powering scent.

Found it better than the off the shelf stuff I've tried before like AG as you mentioned (Not a bad product though)

https://www.ezcarcare.co.uk/collecti...nt=23784228551

Also worth a shout it Trim Reaper from Auto-glanz, can be diluted upto 1:25 for interior (less of a shine the more diluted it is)

Thanks for all the replies however, for 5 litres these work out as between £50 & £60.

I'm looking for something that'll bring my costs down.

I've recently started a p/t business and looking for some products that'll help me get a good finish for not mega expensive costs, I'm then able to offer my services that bit cheaper.
At mo, I'm doing friends & neighbours and although they do pay me, it wouldn't work out as a decent enough 2nd income considering what effort I'm putting in !!!

Do Autosmart do anything as good ?

Now that looks mighty impressive for the price.

Have you (or anyone else)tried it and is it any good ?



Thanks for link

I forgot who but there's a well respected guy on here always uses their tyre-shine.

Personally not used any of the products I'll be honest. Hopefully someone has tried it! I almost put an order in but 5L is overkill for me personally
