Great on tyres, door jams, plastics etc.



Mix it 50/50 and its great for dried on bugs too!!



Available in Tesco and other shops.


Does this strip LSPs? And are you using it neat on wheels/door jams/plastics?

I mix it 50/50 for door jams and plastics. Use it neat on tyres and stubborn marks.

Not sure on LSP, but not seen an issue on the front and mirrors of car I used it.

Originally Race Glaze Whitewall Cleaner was marketed as a general tyre cleaner, as it removes the browning that affects black tyres under UV.
But we found it was bought almost exclusively by whitewall owners, who buy it in droves, so renamed it - though still works just as well on black tyres.
Its alkali blend so not solvent based, so you'll not suffer from consistent use. I use it on my cars which do include a Range Rover.
Try some !

We had this asked pretty frequently so we just named ours 'Tyre Dressing Stripper'

The best by quiet a way we’ve tested is Tuf Shine Tyre cleaner. You’ll see the gunk running off.
