There's some things in these videos that I find counterproductive to properly cleaning a car. I'm going to produce videos in the next few months that show better and more efficient ways to clean your car.

I never watched the 'Washing' video prior today, and I was shocked to see the video recommends using a Boars Hair Brush. I can think of few things more destructive to a vehicle's paint than something like this. Any washing mechanism with bristles or hair will leave an incredible amount of scratches behind. Besides that, these brooms can harbor sand and other micro contaminates that can destroy paint.

I don't remember seeing the hair brushes used on paint I'll watch them again to see, but on the wheels they are great for preliminary brake dust removal. Just a quick light sweep removes alot, and saves you some time. Especially when you can't devote half - full day to washing your car.

Great Video's thanks.

But does anyone know how to get a tyre gel/spray that won't splash up the side of the car? I have tried all sorts and left them to dry for hours but still find it sprayed up the side of the doors.

Any help or advice?


Many thanks
