After suggestions for an interior dressing

Been using Daisy APC first followed by AG vinyl and rubber care for nigh on 14 years now. I'd like a bulk (5 litre) recommendation to replace this. Any suggestions?

Asda smart price APC is 25p a liter so you can get 5L for £1.25.

Ive use daisy and flash APC along with Surfex HD and green star.

The ASDA smart price is as good as the daisy and Flash just doesent smell as fragrant.

I use this for arches tyres and exhaust in a 2l pump sprayer mixed at 1:4

I also use it for pre soaking realy dirty MF and cleaning my buckets and brushes

Where else can you get 5l of APC for £1.25 as I usual by 5/4 a time myself

I always wondered if the household APC is much different to the stuff we buy for automotive use. If not, then like said above, 25p a litre is great value. May have to give it a go on arches and tyres etc. Great tip, thanks guys

Essentially their is no difference between some household and car specific APC's very similar recipes its just people will tend to pay more for Car specific products as they are marketed as being "Safe" in reality its like anything in the wrong hand its dangerous but use common sense as you would with car specific products and your fine.

Their are obviously exeptions like organic/eco APC's and cirtus bassed APC's.

It works out about 6p per L once mixed at 1:3

If you like this tip pick up asda's cheap dish sponges 8 for 40P they are perfect for applying Tyre dressing then just throw away and dont worry about saving a dirty £2 tyre sponge. works out cheaper in the long run especially if you cut one in half!

As for the interior dressing I'd recommended Carpro Perl at 10:1 dilution. Really nice with lots of other uses at different dilutions.

APC wise, I've never used a dedicated car APC, Flash or Stardrops is what I normally use and they are absolutely fine. But I'll look at that cheap ASDA stuff.

They are surprisingly popular in my local ASDA and I often see them sold out so I tend to pick up 4/5 a time

ODK Cabin, unfortunately I've never seen it in 5l amounts but cleans really well, is anti static so stops dust settling as much and the smell is amazing!!!
