6. Turtlewax Platinum Series Tar, Tree S
* Is your car covered in sun-baked insects? * We test the best cleaners * See what's best to clean your car...
Best price: 6.48 (B&Q)
For: Most effective liquid on test
Against: Expensive and messy to clean up afterwards
Very effective. It required only 30 seconds to lift debris from paintwork, and was the most-powerful liquid on test. Insect remains wiped off with the minimum of effort. The thick formula was more like a polish and the instructions stated that residue needed to be washed off afterwards.
The second most expensive product on test
Ease of Use:
The Achilles heel of this product is that it requires washing off after use. As with Turtlewaxs other product on test, and Halfords Bug and Tar Remover, this makes it more suitable for a pre-wash treatment only.
It is safe to use on all finishes and in dealing with a wide range of surface deposits.
