Gave the caravan a quick once over with some waterless wash and shine (Triplewax) then topped with BSD.

The Triplewax is excellent at removing the black streak's.

VAX'd the carpets, can believe how much muck came out. Then a bit of interior detailing.
A good peaceful afternoon.

The washer jets on my civic have been playing up of late so I decided to investigate why yesterday.

The photo shows what the filter of my washer bottle pump looked like once I'd removed it. Not really a surprise barely any water was making it through to the jets.

I didn't take an 'after' shot but it's a white plastic cylinder with lots of tiny holes all along it. It now looks brand new and the washer jets will happily cover the screen, roof and car behind me in washer fluid with just a short pulse.

I gave my washer bottle a soak with hot water and vinegar before flushing it with the hose pipe. I've refilled it with DI water and Sonax nanopro screen wash and will keep it this way from now on.
