That screwfix stuff is amazing. Sprayed it neat on the engine and diluted 5:1 round the engine bay. It literally chased the oil away Also did the underbonnet pad. Couldnt believe the amount of muck it shifted
Had the aircon regassed, which naturally led to the electric fan blowing its fuse. Not surprising as it was a ball of rust inside. Its fixed now and Ive painted the support struts which were on the to do list. Also I can recommend autoglym bumper and trim gel
Decades of wasting money on all different fancy products has led me to these go to chemicals, washing up liquid in 5 l containers for general degreasing and a cheap Swarfega replacement, wire wool soap pads and hot water or white spirit in a tub with a stiff paintbrush, aerosol brake cleaner for blasting out small jobs like threaded holes or small parts.
Rusted stuff goes in my citric acid tank ( Wilcos sell it )
All of which I can get on my normal shopping run in my small town.
We used to have the Safety Kleen parts washers at work, but the last time I went to use it to degrease a chain I found out they have gone green/eco friendly and it now has what looked like soapy water that does bu66er all
Virosol seems very well liked on car cleaning forums like Detailing World. Seen it recommended on a few Saab sites too.
I have been using Bilt Hamber Surfex degreaser. Expensive, but at 10% dilution it's still effective so does last a while.
It's the postage that makes these 5 litre products so pricey though, so good to hear some recommendations for stuff you can get locally like the Screwfix degreaser. Surprised Lidl and Aldi don't do some.
