Thumbs up Write Up - The Bane Blade (shampoo)

I have not received any Aston Martin DB5's, cash supplements, stocks & shares or anything else in return for this review
This is independent of my Review Team reviewing, yet is still impartial and my honest opinion.

The blurb
Baneblade - Looking filthy? No fear, simply slice away at the dirt with BaneBlade! Mix in your bucket at up to 1:1000, and apply with your chosen wash media.



How to use
Well, using a shampoo is not rocket science. You insert the product into the bucket, add your choice of warm or cold water, and have at it. This shampoo is no different in any way, albeit you can get away with using less product than many others, it is that concentrated! Soak your chosen wash media, and apply to the panel, rinsing after use.



The above photos showed three capfuls in the bucket, in the middle of the 1-5 caps suggested.

Good or bad?
Initial impressions are good. The product looks good in the bottle, and smells very much like Bakewell tarts with a hint of bubblegum, more of a heavenly smell than something out of hell (but hey, balance is restored). The scent of the product wafts around during use, creating a pleasant user experience. It suds up well in the bucket and on the wash media. Whilst not strictly an indicator of good cleaning (it's the lubricity you need, which this has in bucket loads), it is always useful to have a few suds on the panels so you can see where you've been.

So, onto the cleaning. It cleans well. Cuts through grime nicely as well as any other leading shampoo. So, like Ronseal, it does exactly what it says on the tin (ok, bottle, but who's picking eh). It leaves a streak free finish when rinsed, so no unpleasant residues to worry about. Happy days.

So, in short, it is easy to use, works well and smells good. What more can you ask for? Oh yes, at £10 for the bottle, at up to 1:1000 that works out very good value for money!

Washed and dried:

I doubt it can really do 1:1000.
That means in a 10L bucket you would have 10ML of solution, It may sud up but you don't need to be a chemist to know it won't do much else.
You could swallow 10ML of bleach mixed into 10L of water and you wouldn't even notice.

Still maybe I should try it before judging on a bit of marking speil.

Whilst I understand where you are coming from, it really can work at that concentration It's not quite as slick, but it is still plenty for a safe 2BM wash The cap holds as near as damn it 10ml too which is a handy guide

I'd also advise against drinking bleach in any quantity in 10L of water The brain can only take so much before you over power it and over hydrate...it can be lethal

Is there anyway to get shares in AB? I spend too much money on it all

Nowt wild about it It is very much UP TO 1:1000. I'd only use that concentration on a vehicle that has say been recently polished (and I'm washing off polishing dust) or lightly soiled. The concentration I used today (30ml in 10L, or approx 1:300) was sufficient to safely wash a car that hasn't seen a wash since early December

Fair do's I've tended to stick to the cheaper shampoos in my time myself, however, I'd happily spend the tenner on this one knowing how well it works and how far I can make it go
