Simoniz QD £2 at Tesco/Wilkos

I bought one from Wilkos a month or two ago, stashed it somewhere, forgot about it then after neglecting car for some weeks due to ill health bought a second one from Tesco. Although not as thick as BSD it has a baby powder smell and car produces small beads again as it has DSW underneath.

Have used Simoniz wash n wax and this leaves a film on top but beading not as good as BSD.

Anyone else given Simoniz QD a go?

I bought a bottle of this a while back and happily used it. It worked like any QD and was well worth the 2 quid.

They have two wheel cleaners, one is acidic and one isn't. The one which isn't is the 'ultracare' one.

Their stuff is decent. Great value when Tesco run the half price offer.

It smells acidic, but I could be wrong. I dilute mine with 30-40% water as I find it dries out too quickly even doing one wheel at a time.

Good solid stuff though.

Their Ultracare alloy wheel cleaner isn't acidic and works well.

Their QD is a bargain at £2. It is really good. I used to use it a lot before BSD as it was the most durable one I'd found up to that point. For £2 it's well worth picking up - it looks good, beads well and lasts a good while too.

In fact, here am I talking it up in 2007!

Can their QD be sprayed directly on wet panels? Assume so as most are I thought.
