    Demon shine - underrated when used for it's proper purpose!

    Dug out the demon shine today when I decided to give the car a super quick clean.. Forgot how good this stuff is

    Regularly on offer is asda/tesco at 1.50 ish for 2 litres.

    Lots of people bitch about it because they seem to think it's some magical miracle cleaning product when in all truth it's a good drying aid for the busy detailer/cleaner.

    All I did today was snow foams the whole car, jet washed off and then rinsed with a couple of buckets of demon shine mixed 1:10 ratio.. then I took the car for a spin to dry off, certainly looks like I've put in more effort than I have.

    Admittedly I dont have photos because it's just started raining, hence the rush I was in.

    If anyone hasn't used this product and gets annoyed trying to dry a car I genuinely suggest you try this stuff..

    I'd never tried it before, until @Kevin Whittaker mentioned it a little while back being on offer... It's brilliant stuff for the quick wash
    Which reminds me, I need some more.

    I only use Autobrites Banana gloss shampoo, then a rinse with diluted demon shine. Gives spot on results and both are cheap

    I sometimes use it and it is exceptional value for money.

    I broke out some Project 32 from Autobrite today, bought it last year, but used up my existing detailer first. Wow, it's fab

    Demon shine is awesome, always use it before drying the car, it's cheap as chips and does it exactly what it says on the tin
