    You sure have built up a nice collection, Tomee. Might eventually rival your collection of fruit boxes.

                  I thought it looked a little like "grease monkey" from the same co.

                  "SHOCK" it actually works

                      Keep talking: Any residue or harsh odours? I have never used it before & need some good stuff for "homework".

                        My mum always steals my Wolfgang carpet cleaner & spot removers & my Megs brush for the carpet at home,
                        she has used my Xenit for bubble gum stuck to some pants & a couch too.

                        She has also taken a liking to my Z9,Z10, AIO & Bowdens Metal Polish for other stuff around the house,
                        she reckons all of them are much better then the stuff you can buy that's made for around the house
                        but I haven't told her how much it all costs me tho :roll:

                        PS Back on topic I will get the camera out soon to get a pic of my collection I'll finally have something to use it all on very soon.

                          One of the best detailer in australia didn't get a mention.

                          Rick has more trophies than anyone else, so dont just go by my opinion but the opinion of the judges at Summernats, Autosalon and AME show.

                 is the addy.

                          His work is the same high quality as Damien from final inspection, but in sydney.

                          So it'd be a waist of petrol to come all the way to melbourne when someone just as skilled is located in your own backyard :wink:

                              Bown- sorry about the later reply, i havnt had any residue and it leaves a lavender fragrence inthe car. I only clean my matts and carpets in full sun shine so they can dry in the sun afterwards so that no moisture is left behind. Im sure that there are better products out there designed for auto interiors but i find carpet power to work just aswell and doesnt cost as much and im not doing it often so its all good with me

                              The fragrance is strong to get rid of any odurs but its lavender and soon blends in with everything.
