The solution used neat is almost too powerful, and works even better when wetted with water. This is different to every other water-washable degreaser (Gunk/Jizer etc) that I have used. They go grey and lose their power, whereas with Surfex water merely increases the amount of degreaser working on the grime. (There's probably a scientific process going on here..) Dilutes about 5:1 it had awesome cutting power through all the crud.

Bl**dy well done lads, I will be buying a shed load more of this stuff!
Glad you like it, it bought my Alfa wheels up a treat the other day and it works superbly as a patio cleaner too. And environmentally friendly.

Where did you purchase it?
Either from us directly, or Elite or Pro Detailing, at the moment.

Yup, and if you order our new Auto-foam, all other BH items can currently be had with no extra postage costs either.
