SIMONIZ half price at Wilko

So, I picked up the 'Quickshine Detailer' as it's a no-brainer at £2.50, but is there anything else that's actually useful? Ideally I need a shampoo, but everything there is 'wash n wax' type product; no shampoo that is just a cleaner.

Howabout the SIMONIZ Carnumba Liquid Wax? At £2.50 that's another one that might be worth picking up. Anyone tried it?

Maybe some of their Back To Black Trim Cleaner its a 500ml trim spray, could be good for a quick spruce up of arch liners

I buy the liquid wax every year when i find it for £2.50. I use it every year in the winter on the alloys, i apply with 1 inch detailing brush and very generous and applied every 2 weeks in the winter stops salt without using the good stuff

Shame they don't have a simple shampoo/body wash without the silly additives.

No, they don't. That's what I need. Where did you find it? They don't have it in Wiko.

Tried the bug and tar remover. Surprisingly good.

I ordered the Back To Black Trim Cleaner and Liquid Carnuba Wax so will try them next week, as well as the detailing spray. That's quite enough for now. We'll see...
