Shocking! No posts since Nov 8th? What a disgrace :whistle:

Unfortunately I still haven't cleaned my car (work, weather, blah blah blah) but, I did get my wheel woolies today thanks to SRGTD :smiley: They look good and I'm looking forward to trying them out. Mind you forecast for tomorrow is rain, then I'm on night shifts and then I'll be too knackered... :whistle:

There was no information about cleaning them, just rinse them under warm water?

Glad you’re pleased with the quality of them Watts.

I rinse mine in a bucket of clean warm water to clean them, and then give them a good shake followed by towel drying them. I then hang them up in one of my many Wo-wo net bags and let them dry naturally before storing them away.

I gave the interior a good clean.  It was very very overdue! 

Used a combo of Swissvax Quick Interior Finish on plastic trim and Gliptone Leather Cleaner and Gliptone Leather Conditioner on all leather (and trusty WoWo microfibres). Metrovac Vac n Blo to vacuum out the piles of gravel, leaves and mud from footwells.  Compressed air, ValetPro detailing brush to chase out the dust in the nooks.

Looks good. I need to sort mine out this next week; interior and exterior.

Very smart indeed Jim :smiley: If the weather is on my side I'll hopefully give mine a spruce up tomorrow. I don't think it's been cleaned since the 18th of September...
