lol I use Meguiars. Not for any specific reason, I just decided to get Meg's when it was on offer, and have stuck with that. I used AutoGlym polish the other day as I run out of Meg's, and wasn't as impressed with it to be honest.

So Meguiars all the way for me. If people want to get some cleaning stuff, then Halfords have 3 for 2 on all cleaning stuff.

You're not using my Meguiars stuff to go cleaning the house! Besides, our bathroom tiles are a rough surface, doubt it will be good for them really!

I have used Auto Glym's super resin polish lately - and i must say it is really good.

Havent tried meg's before, but i might have a dabble seeing as the offer is on at halfrauds.

Yeah, I used the super resin polish at the weekend, and was not as impressed with it as Meguiars which I normally use. It was very powdery as Jon said, and left alot of white marks, whereas Meguiars doesnt do that.

Each to their own though. But gives Meg's a try!

well where do i start with my collection ???

i use meguiars stuff but have recently started using some Poorboys and Clearkote products

The Clearkote stuff is the nuts to be honest. You can use in sunlight with no affects and no dust like Autoglym

i use 3 different bottles of Clearkote at different stages

I take it this is Gaz who has/had the immaculate FRST? I remember ages ago he was on about setting up a cleaning website for products.

May have to give the clearkote stuff a go one day.
