Horses for courses I guess. It’s always been my understanding that slow degreaser is best for this type of thing, as it doesn’t flash off too quickly before all the cleaning can be done, I don’t find Upol Slow too slow to flash off at all, I find it comfortable to use, even in the cooler weather we have just now.
I’m also using Spies Hecker 7010 as we speak, it seems to flash very slightly more quickly than Upol Slow, I haven’t yet made up my mind which is best but both are very good and I would recommend either.

Interesting, what do you use personally?

I use bilt hamber cleanser fluid its solvent based not ipa and much nicer to use.

Some lsps and most waxes/glazes are solvent based the solvents are there to clean the surface and help the product bond so a panel wipe might not always be necessary with some lsps.

So what do people use IPA for these days ?
i initially bought it for panel wiping although that appears to be frowned upon now.
I've been mixing it with aloe vera to make hand sanitiser.
I have 10 litres so may still be mixing it when Covid 29 hits us

Glass cleaner! my favorite glass cleaner is just 10-15% IPA and Di water.

Removing sticker residue
Disinfectant

IPA has a lot of uses

Lost over 3-months of my life Alan, just read this.
Made a point of adding the tip to get used to SEARCH with newbies when they join. It is very clear s lot of people have ceased to respond to so many newbie questions. It does get a bit thin. Search is the best section on here
