Autoglym Washer Shampoo 5 L - 6 Halfords
« on: 09 January 2019, 12:22:50 »

Autoglym Pressure Washer Shampoo 5 Litre currently at 6 quid at Halfords, was 17.50

Good price and good stuff this, Ive used it many times on all sorts of things, Cars, Engines, House Windows, Garden Stuff etc, (Note, its not Snow Foam or Polish), its a good all rounder Shampoo / Detergent.  :y

Can be used in a Wash Bucket with Sponge as well if you dont have a Pressure Washer.

My Omega is being washed as I type  :y
and the forecast predicts it will be washed several times next week too  ;D
when i manually wash it ,I use turtlewax
or cheap washing up liquid  :o
(if i want to strip all the dirt and wax off to t-cut and re-wax )

I can insure Al, having bought the 2.2 LPG, that none of tunies cars will rot or rust away          .......well, not before the next MOT anyway.  :D

Right that the political bit out the way, now, decisions, decisions, do I choose the free 12 month Movies or Entertaiment NowTV Sky Pass. ;D

Since when did washing a car prevent rot? They all rust and rot away in places that don't see a sponge.  :)

you have to use genuine Vauxhall water. From the dealer's tap stores. It stops the car rusting through the power of delusional PFM.

I see why you all have rust issues
you've been getting your Omegas wet  :o
If you get an omega wet, you need to oven bake it at gas mk 4 for at least 2 hours as per the instruction manual ,(which I've  still not read  :P , but Mrs Builder looked it up while cooking cakes recently)  :y

No. That would make all the rust fall off, and that's the only thing holding most Omegas together..  :P ;D
