Mothers 07240 California Gold Clay Bar Paint Saving System

Clean your paint! As you drive, your car picks up environmental pollutants from the atmosphere and the road. Over time (and not much time) these particles will adhere to your paint job and dull the finish. You cannot avoid this condition.

This gunk is literally embedded in the paint. Soap and water can't get it all. Don't waste your time and possibly damage your paint by rubbing. This gentle but effective clay bar technology literally scrubs away road gunk and makes your paint look like new again. A special towel and a bottle of detailing spray is included.

Mr. Clean AutoDry Car Wash System

Folks have been using the Mr. Clean brand since 1958. Procter and Gamble sells billions of dollars of cleaning product around the world with the Mr Clean logo. This extremely handy package includes soap, filter, and three separate nozzles for attaching to your garden hose. Order a garden hose if you need one. There's no need to visit the car wash: wash your baby in your driveway to save money and time.

This technology eliminates the need for buckets and sponges. Your car will be clean in much less time: connect the nozzle to your hose, add soap to the reservoir, and start spraying. Specially engineered cleaning agents will not strip wax: only road dirt and grime is removed.

Maxell CD-AUTO Automobile CD Lens Cleaner

Your CD player may not be broken, it might be dirty! You can't poke a vacuum cleaner nozzle in there and you shouldn't spray it with compressed air: use this specially designed cleaning disk to remove accumulated dust and dirt from the inside of the device. Gunk accumulates on all the interior surfaces of your vehicle and your CD player is no different. Static electricity on electronic components actually increases the rate of accumulation. This device inserts into your player just like an audio CD. It actually includes audio instructions to guide you through the cleaning process.

Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a replacement CD player, keep your stereo clean with this simple and easy to use system.

Mothers 05632 California Gold Car Wash

Car enthusiasts depend on Mothers to provide quality cleaning products. This bottle of shampoo for your car will cut grease and remove road filth without stripping wax or dulling paint. It creates a lot of foam! Foam doesn't actually do anything, cleaning-wise, but it looks busy. California Gold is concentrated, so a only a few ounces will provide a bucket of cleaning solution. Combine it with warm water and a gentle sponge of washing mitt to create a cleaning system that will make your neighbors jealous.

Stoner 91086 More Shine Tire Coating

Clean up your tires with this specially engineered cleaner. Simply spray it on and allow it to dry. There's no need to rinse or wipe down the tires. It repels water and dirt, but doesn't fly off when you drive. Your paint and wheel wells won't be sprayed with excess cleaner from your tires.

Your tires will look as black as when they were new. One coat produces a dull black finish while two coats gives you much more gloss: it's your choice. Try one coat, drive around a while, and consider a second.
