    I used to use Fairy, but found that it goes 'gloppy' in the cold. I now use Persil and it's much better. It isn't always the cheapest that's best.

    I don't use it but saw it so took a pic

    I use asda zesty lemon and flash gel concentrate
    2x1l bottles of washing up liquid and 1 small bottle of flash
    Stopped using it ages ago as it ruined my hands but nowadays i only have pure in my bucket and soap goes direct on to applicator so my hands don't get battered

    Daveyboy in my local BnQ, the other week they had Squeggee Off for £2 a bottle on reduced becasue I assume they could not sell them. So I brought 4 or 5 bottles and have been trying it out recently. Its good in my opinion, but I am a fairy trad-er and I still rate fairy over SO.

    I've never used Pure water in my bucket and I've never used flash either. In my opinion, its not what you use that makes the differernce, its the quality of the work.

    My work is always quality lol

    I use flash and washing up liquid as i like the combination of slip and cleaning power on dirty frames

    Pure i find behaves differently and tries to pull itself away from the edges which helps with 0 detailing with liquidators

    I work by adding my soap mix to the applicator which has been wet in my bucket of pure
    It always has enough slip as i adjust to weather and heat etc as needed
