Best price: £3.99 (Halfords)
Capacity: 500ml
Type: Spray

For: Effective and cheap for this type of remover
Against:Not good for quick touch-up work
Overall:


Effectiveness:
Like the two Turtlewax products on test, the Halfords remover is more like a polish. Halfords’ fluid is the cheaper of the three and worked well once it had been left to act for a minute.


Buying:
Cheaper than both Turtlewax removers.


Ease of Use:
Residue needs to be washed off, which makes the process more involved – fine if you were planning to wash your car anyway, but not for a quick clean up.


Special features/Limitations:
Can be used to remove a wide range of contaminants from glass and painted surfaces, but not rough, unpainted plastics.
