I have found that on faded black plastic bits (especially when I had my old Escort!) that using black wax shoe polish is excellent. Not only restores the colour but also the wax part of the polish is a great water repellant. ALOT cheaper than back to black etc!

Cheap products are not necessarily value ....

Best way to stick to a budget is put a set of products together that work and compliment each other .... that way you don't end up with loads of half used stuff ...

Very good point - buying products that double up can save more money as if something does 2 jobs you have double the budget to spend on it.

Surfex HD has to be one of the most economical APC products available, it also has a large number of uses around the house, works wonders on UPVC windows.
