There is another thread on here about the exact same thing, I seem to remember there were some cracking ideas,

I’ve used demon shine spray shine on my glossy kitchen cupboards, after the wife used my green star APC on them to clean them.lol

Chemical Guys fabric clean is bloody awesome at getting soot/charcoal dust out of a cream sofa.

Not the most practical colour or fabric choice when you have a log/multi fuel burner!

Glass sealant on phone covers.

T-Cut (duck and cover!) for removing scratches from the faces of a watch etc...

I've used Wolf's Bodyguard on the bathroom sink, taps and shower valve/head.

Orchard Glitz tyre dressing on the edge of the sole of my sons school shoes after I've polished them.

Gtechnic i1 on my trainers, a quilted jacket I keep in the car and a barbecue cover.

APC on floor tiles - this needs to be thoroughly rinsed off as it can leave a residue.

Orchard Perfection on anything I need to be shiny. It's incredible.

Surfex hd on the cooker and oven! Mix was 10:1 but will be using neat next due to the amount of grease involved.

We use Tardis in our workshop to clean old wax off skis and snowboards. We also use APC for to clean the top surfaces.

I've done this with a few things, even a ladder where I got the full asking price and the buyer commenting on how presentable it looked!

I have just detailed the double kitchen bin - it was in the middle of our house refurb and now looks like new!

Solution finish on the lid, clay and wax to the stainless sections and APC/Meguires Endurance on the pedals - took the opportunity to remove all of the stickers on it as well
