Use this on the interior of my car. Non-greasy, leaves a nice satin finish that isn't slippery. Repels dust and makes all the plastics look like new. Even helps hide small scuffs and scratches. I would only criticise the spray nozzle, as it's pretty poor and doesn't mist the liquid onto a surface at all. I use by spraying on a microfiber, lint free cloth and then apply to the trim that way. This is the best product of its kind I have ever used and note that a lot of professional detailers use this stuff too. I've even dressed the engine bay with this, worked a treat. It's only failing is on exterior plastics, where its longevity is compromised when exposed to external elements. For the car interior and detailing, this is a must have product IMO. I won't use anything else now I have found this stuff :-)
Purchased for car interior trim as it's a well regarded product used by professional car detailers.
The finish it provides is similar to those scented aerosol "cockpit shine" type products. Something I'd used in the past. That is, a smooth, almost slippery but non-greasy sheen. Unfortunately the aerosol products are extremely potent and only allow a quick slap dash application before you need to vacate the area to avoid being suffocated. Needless to say those went in the bin a long time ago.
The spray bottle isn't the best but applied to a microfibre towel first (or MF covered sponge in my case) allowed easy and accurate product spreading. Once finished give it a quick buff with a dry MF cloth to ensure completely even coverage.
The results are excellent and although it works well on textured plastic, it is smooth plastic that seems to come up best. In my case the trim around the steering wheel column and the wing mirror adjustment lever look completely transformed from faded grey to a black gloss. The product doesn't have any scent or potency so you can focus on application without worrying about being suffocated.
Also works on exterior plastic trim but won't provide the durability of a dedicated product.
Definitely pick some up. I never realised how faded some of my trim was until I gave this a try!
Tried lots of proprietary car cleaners to enrich the black plastic elements on my car, but this is by far the best. It really works and give a lustrous matt finish that repels dirt for a decent amount of time. 5-6 weeks in my case on lower black stippled plastic car body blades. Useful to protect many different materials too - see full description.
Tips: 1. ensure the area is cleaned before applying. 2. spray on a cloth and apply rather than the part you want improving. 3. polish off excess
As a detailing obsessive, I tried this as it was recommended from a reliable source. However, I didn't read the many reviews on other websites outlining its big flaw: white streaks when exposed to water.
It works very well on interior panels - although there are some types of plastic it makes no difference to at all. It also worked very well on exterior black plastic panels on my Audi - that was until it rained overnight. I was greeted with faint white streaks on every plastic panel and inserts. Manufacturer states this is due to over application of the product, but apart from spraying onto a cloth and wiping until dry, I'm not sure what other application technique is necessary. It's also pretty useless on rubber trims and makes zero appreciable difference.
I'll keep using it to see if I can muster the appropriate technique to make this product work as well as many suggest, but doubt I will buy it again.
perhaps 5* a bit premature but I am using it on the rubber deck hatches of my sea kayak and after the 1st use it has made a difference to the water repellence of the hatches and even made them look new
I was looking for ways to restore some rubber on my classic car and found some using this on YouTube. It showed it worked well, I was a bit skeptic but thought I’d give it a try anyway as new parts were so expensive. I didn’t spray it I poured the liquid into an empty container as the video had done and soaked the parts over night. To my surprise they came out really well. Genuinely recommend. I think you could probably spray this on to door seals etc to restore them, might take w few applications. I think it would work even better as a preventative measure too, just occasionally spray and work in to rubber seals etc. p.s. - video showed it being used on auxiliary / timing belts and all sorts!!
This product rocks! Instantly restores tired looking hoses plastic panels rubber items back to their black colour.
I used it on my car panels that were faded. Really faded items need to be removed and left to soak in the product for best results. Apparently it also prolongs the life of drive belts i soaked mine and will test the theory I'll certainly be buying more next time.
Purchased to put onto my Bell Royalex plastic canoe . My daughter has applied it and says the boat now looks almost new and she has noticed that it slips through the water much easier. A goos purchase and hopefully will keep my canoe well for years.
Great on engine bays, interior plastics and door seals but doesn't have any real longevity on vehicle exterior trim. It's not sticky and revives faded trims and other plastic parts. I've even used it on pipework outside the house, it works okay but fades over time because it's water based it washes off. I still prefer AF dressle, just as good and easy to get hold of, plus it's cheaper and lasts longer on outside car trim.
