She pus some Iron detox in there and something else I can't remember



This was easily the best BF sale I found.





If you're into the idea, then the ring doorbell pro with free echo show looks a bargain at £149.


I was thinking buying the bilt hamber auto wash but once I saw CarChem 1900:1 5lt for that price I just went and bought it, ended up buying a litre of panel wipe also for £8 and had free delivery as it was over £20.
Regarding the ring doorbell I already have one but thanks for bringing it up, it may help someone else looking for one.

I succumbed to a posh wax from M&K - Philip wax in a crystal jar. Call me a chav if you like but it was less than 1/3 normal price

of all things 5 pairs of socks reduced from 25 quid to just over 15 quid a pair, would have bought them anyway but think I must have bought some last time round, prob got 30 pairs all the same by now, seem to last forever.
and bought a st dupont lighter for normal use as sick of cheap lighters apart from 3 st dupont lighters that only come out holiday time as they are too expensive for normal use.
useful as they are all the same colour so no need to match (socks that is, not lighters)

I use BH now, so it's going to be interesting to see which I prefer.

I actually really like auto finesse but the cost per wash is sky high.

Both bilt hamber and CarChem are really economical. Let me know which one you prefer once you get to use them. I know that auto wash is really high rated by almost everyone but the CarChem is also a favourite around here.

Lol, quite right. Glad it isn’t just me then.

I bought two things... not really detailing related although car related...

I really wanted window tints for my car however being the time of year my bank balance told me that I wasn't allowed them - so instead I bought some Car Privacy Shades that were 40% off, should have been like £90 and paid £50 posted. Fitted today! Look ace!

Also secondly, I wanted a performance air filter for my car so I found a performance air filter (duh) with a cheeky little discount code with X amount off and then found another code with next day delivery. BOOM - ordered, fitted and Bobs yer Uncle, I'm one happy man but Halifax now hate me!

As long as you’re happy that’s the main thing. Do you have pic of the car privacy shades?
