Please do not do this on your paintwork, painted alloys or leather!Darren C wrote:Cif cream, my best kept secret.

Ideal for tar spots, baked on brake dust on alloys, baked on squashed flies in summer, cleaning rust stains & spots off Chrome and cleaning light colour leather interiors.
You will abrade the paint on your bodywork and wheels and after a few applications can start to notice damage.
Leather upholstery..... how can I put this.......
Modern automotive leather is best thought of as being treated in the same way as your bodywork. The top-grade animal hide is boiled, stretched and scraped to a uniform thickness. Then a filler coat is applied to disguise any imperfections (scars, disfigurements, etc) before the colour is sprayed on followed by a protective 'lacquer'.
Any abrasives will wear away these coatings and before long you will be in a situation where you need someone like me to come and restore your seats.
(Not that I mind, I just get the impression that people wouldn't want to throw money at me unnecessarily.....)
