Wheel brush- How Much??

I saw these in Sainsburys on clearance. Thought they were worth a try as a wheel brush. Well they work well on protected barrels with shampoo and whilst not a problem for myself, if space is tight, these may work for you being flat.


Left is new, right used and dried. They are pretty thick even when wet.



And next to my AF large brush.



The brush part detaches for washing.

Oh yes, the price, £0.35 but even at full price of £3.50, not bad.

I've had one of these for a while and they do a decent job, even at £3.50 - ideal for wider wheel rims; the detachable cover makes washing easy too.

Still £3.50 in my local store, but will keep an eye out next week to see go to clearance, in which case i'll buy another one or two.

Just getting my wheels refurbed so been looking at wheel woolies but just cannot push myself to spend £35 on brushes. These are definitely worth a go!

Look at it another way - you have probably spent a couple of hundred pounds of getting your wheels refurbed, so a few quid on a woolie might be a good investment.

Some sellers do sell individual woolies, so you could just get one of the right size.
