IT’S MINT IS THAT!

Mint Classic is a young car care brand but one that really has found a niche within the classic car market with quality products at a great price.

I tried their Wheel Cleaner recently, which had been recommended to me and although a crowded market there are some really rubbish products out there. Wheel cleaners tend to fall into two camps when it comes to smell. They either have a pong like peroxide hair bleach or that of an oven cleaner and Mint Classic’s falls into the latter category.

It features a non-acidic formula and I had a filthy set of 22in More >

BLIZZARDS FORECAST

I’m a really big fan of the pump sprayers produced by Marolex. I’ve been the happy owner of their Ergo sprayer and an Axel 3000 foamer and they play a large part in my detailing regime.

The Ergo is ideal for use when I want to really clean my wheels as you can spray the wheel cleaner or Iron Fallout Remover right into all the nooks and crannies behind the spokes and the inside of the wheel, where crud can gather. Amongst the many possible uses, it can also be used to apply clay bar lubricant. It is supplied with different More >

GREAT POTTERY THROW-DOWN? NO, IT’S NOT THAT SORT OF CLAY!

Meguiar’s has announced the launch of their new Hybrid Ceramic Synthetic Clay Kit.

If you’re really into car cleaning, you’re most likely already familiar with clay bars (and the like) and have probably been using it for years. However, this kit takes removing contaminants and getting a smooth as glass surface to another level, Meguiar’s reckon.

Contaminants bonded on top of the paint are removed with a specialised Synthetic Clay Pad. Since the lubricant is the all-new Meguiar’s® Hybrid Ceramic Detailer, you get paint that’s smooth and shiny with the added benefit of water-beading protection, all in one quick and easy step!

BEADING GREAT MIKE!

I’m a big fan of Michael Cipriani’s Infinity Wax brand and the Glasgow-based operation has a large range of quality products and a very loyal band of followers. He places a signature on the label, which is nice, while he also values vivid colours and nice smells in his products.

Their Synergy QD is a ceramic resin-infused quick detailer, which solvent-based and gives a massive amount of beads and refreshingly is coating safe. This means that it will give your existing ceramic coating boost rather than remove it.

Success comes by applying it to one panel at a time. Spray it on, More >

BANANARAMA

There are plenty of waxes that promise to give your car a butter wet or mirror-like finish.

Most of them hail from America and some of them are really very good indeed. However, it’s good to be able to report on a UK car care brand offering such a product.

The wax in question is from Autobrite Direct and their brilliantly named Carbanuba banana-scented wet-look wax. The smell could well be nearly as a good as the wax!

It really does have an unbelievable banana scent that smells like a McDonald’s milkshake or a Bird’s Angel Delight. I like my car care products More >

IT’S NICE TO HAVE A FAN

2020 could be a good year for high temperatures. April was the sunniest on record for the UK and May continued to bring the sunshine.

Meaco has seen an exceptionally high demand for fans this spring, partly due to this weather, and in part caused by the lockdown with more people working and exercising from home.

It is therefore timely that Meaco has launched a new pedestal fan, to join its award-winning range of fans.

The MeacoFan 1056 Pedestal air circulator is the first pedestal fan for Meaco, developed and built following customer demand. According to Chris Michael, MD of Meaco: “Customers were looking for a floor More >
