Judging from many of the emails we receive, a common problem for many car care enthusiasts concerns exterior trim dressings and their apparent lack of durability under typical UK driving conditions. While it is fair to say that many modern water-based dressings struggle to adhere for any longer than several weeks at a time, it is also fair to say that in many cases their durability is compromised by the fact that treated surfaces are not cleaned properly first. Is it really fair to expect a water-based dressing to adhere properly to anything less than a spotlessly clean, oil-free surface? We think not, and suggest that Swissvax Plastic Wash is the perfect preparatory product for all water-based dressings. Furthermore, it's also the most effective plastic cleaner we've ever used.
