I feel sorry for you guys that live up farm roads ! Must be a nightmare trying to keep the cars clean !

I stopped using they jetwash things when i thought about the amount of sh*t that will be stuck to the brushes

Ive heard about the hot rims and the feedback i got was that its the best stuff to buy considering the price of it. Ive got a clay bar too just no lube for it so i tried using water and it worked enough to get the main crap off the bottom of the 4 doors. Havent used it since as i plan on getting another bar and some lube and in the better weather just abusing it so the cars spotless.

What do you guys find best for putting tar remover on as i just use and old towel as its rough so when the tar remover soaks into that its brilliant for getting anything off. But of course i know thats not what your meant to use so i just wanted to know what you guys think best and ill give it a try ?

Plus cheers for all the replies ! Got a good wee discussion going :)

I might look into that !

Do you guys just soak a cloth in it and use that to take the tar off ? Or a micro-fibre cloth ?
