New from Wax Tailor and part of their Yorkshire Gold range is Liquid Gold Wax Cleaner that I tried on the notoriously difficult to clean well black Mica paint on my Audi, a surface that is a genuinely good gauge of a polish’s ability with many so-called market leaders not cutting it (literally!).

Some struggle to remove swirl marks on it, but this one did a pleasingly good job, and it seemed to give a deep lustre that enhanced the colour and shine, fully bringing out the glitter-effect in the paint. During this week’s heavy rain I noticed that water on the surface was beading-up nicely, too.

A 500ml bottle costs £19.95 and is available via www.wax-tailor.com or at the other end of 01964 614 006 ENDS.
