I started using this a few years ago, then I ran out of it. So went something else, just recently bought a mahoosive bottle of it and started using it again. The more you use it the easier the car cleans and it seems the less the dirt sticks to it. Also use it as a clay lube and detailing spray.

I'm in California in a few weeks and filling my boots with cheap polish and big red sponges Sadly they are far too expensive to get from the Euro importert. You could probably do worse than trying Autogeek US but they have a $100 min order for international orders.

sorry to hijack slightly, i'll be going back to ONR for the first time in around 3-4 years probably. last time it was the popular zymol sponge whats the preference nowadays?

Many thanks
The big red sponge does look good but too expensive for me, I use a cheap noodle mitt. There is a recent thread where some nice looking alternatives. Once I find the link I will post it

Very good idea but I wonder if he now has 20 PM's asking for stuff to be brought back. I will send him a PM but not for a sponge.

I am happy with the cheap noodle plus I occasionally use the Serious Performance sponge
