IF ROAD rash is getting you down, apply one of these smart ideas to remove the scratches on your motor. Is there anything more infuriating than finding a new blemish on your pristine paintwork? Cleaning the car ourselves can often highlight knocks and scratches that we would have otherwise ignored. Closer inspection gives a more detailed perspective on the family workhorse. Knocks and scraps are inevitable. Cars are getting bigger, so parking spaces feel like they’re getting smaller. Couple that with Blighty’s narrow streets and potholed roads and you’ll be lucky if you and your motor manage to escape without injury. If you’re one of the unfortunate ones, you might be able to get rid of any unsightly damage with a few pennies and a bit of patience. Here’s our guide to the best car scratch removers you can buy for your car in 2019, compiled using a mixture of our expert knowledge, user reviews and industry tests. 1. Autoglym Scratch Removal Complete Kit Autoglym scratch removal complete kit Autoglym Scratch Removal Complete Kit, £18 from Halfords – buy here Car care favourite, Autoglym, has put together this kit that takes you right through the scratch repair process from start to finish. It’s a bit pricey, but contains everything you’ll need. The waffle applicator pad not only works the product into the paintwork, but has been effective at reducing hand cramp that often accompanies repairs like scratches. Though the applicator pad can be tough to get into places like door handles, repeated detailing in these areas will reduce the appearance of scratches. Buff the excess product and Super Resin Polish for a high-gloss finish all over the car. 2. T-Cut Scratch Remover T-Cut Scratch Remover T-Cut Scratch Remover, £8 from buy here “Enhanced by nanotechnology” is another way of saying that science has enabled T-Cut’s boffins to refine the molecular structure of its scratch remover. This means its particles are even more effective at gently removing blemishes without damaging the surrounding area of the paintwork. If it goes beyond the clear coats of lacquer, T-Cut’s range of colour choice will help hide the damage and enhance the car’s existing colour. It won’t be perfect, since that can only be achieved with a respray. However, for this price, it’ll be marginally less conspicuous. 3. Meguiar’s M205 Mirror Glaze Ultra Finishing Polish – 8 oz MEGUIAR’S M205 Mirror Glaze Ultra Finishing Polish Meguiar’s M205 mirror glaze ultra finishing polish – 8 oz, £20.49 from Amazon- buy here Like many of the car polishes on this list, Meguiar’s Mirror Glaze is a fine-textured formula for removing debris off the paintwork. If you’ve only got white hair-like scratches, you’ll be left with a beautifully smooth surface, which you can buff to a high shine. However, if the scratch goes through to the colour, primer or metal of the car, Mirror Glaze won’t be sufficient to repair it since it’s designed to smooth scuffs and minor scratches from the clear lacquered layers of the paintwork, rather than the lower layers. 4. Auto Care Repair Paste 250g Auto care repair paste Auto Care Repair Paste, £6.25 from Wilko- buy here Auto Care Repair Paste is worth a mention for those looking to fill in deeper scratches. A little bit like Polyfilla, Auto Care Repair Paste fills the gap, if the scratch is significantly more severe, or has turned into a hole. An involved effort is required as you’ll need to colour match your paintwork. However, the paste is worth a try if the scratch isn’t in an obvious place and you have a gentle hand when it comes to touching up paint. 5. Farecla G3 Professional Scratch Remover G3 Pro 7164 500ml G3 Professional Scratch Remover Liquid Farecla G3 Professional scratch remover liquid, £9.25 from Amazon- buy here Farecla is another brand that has been in the laboratory enhancing its formula. Using a blend of what Farecla calls ‘Engineered Diminishing Abrasives’, the idea is the particles reduce until the scratch remover turns into a smooth wax polishing fluid. Best applied with the waffle applicators Autoglym also recommend, Amazon does a deal, charging £17.24 for both the remover and pads (and in the process, making Autoglym’s kit look like a bargain). That said, users report fantastic results, especially when tackling remnant bird poo marks other products won’t shift. The pros love it and the results speak for themselves. 6. Quixx Paint Scratch Remover Quixx Scratch Remover Quixx paint scratch remover, £8.98 from Amazon- buy here Quixx is a great product for those with a careful disposition, steady hand and bags of patience. Quixx Paint Scratch Remover is better at tackling deeper scratches, but if the scratch goes to the primer, you’ll first need to apply a colour correcter and then use this Quixx kit. Complete with sandpaper to get a smoother finish, the gentlest of efforts will take out scratches and then help blend the damaged lacquer. A solid buff will mitigate any hazing or dullness, for an almost flawless finish, but we can’t emphasise the effort and patience needed enough. Still, far cheaper than a garage repair.

THE proliferation of hand car washes has ended the need to come through a mechanical brush wash. It’s one of the few areas of life where humans are actually taking over from robots. Still, cleaning your car must be one of the most undervalued therapies there is. The meditative focus of washing all that dirt off is one of the reasons to avoid paying someone else to do it. Plus, as the summer months head our way, we’ll look for any excuse to get outside. What do you need for car detailing? Detailing involves more than a wash and a dry. Car detailing enthusiasts layer products to create protective barriers against inclement weather, heat and other drivers. It’s not a focus on one part of the car, but investing in specialist products for each component, such as wheel wash and glass cleaner, as well as the appropriate applicators, brushes and cloths for each task. Detailing shuns household products such as washing-up liquid, as such detergents can strip protection from the paintwork and can encourage rusting and other damage. To show cars another level of commitment, you need waxes, polishes, sealant and above all, time. Time to jet wash, time to dry, time to buff. To help you out, here’s our list of the best car cleaning products you can buy in 2019. 1. Karcher’s K2 Full Control Karcher K2 Full Control Car Pressure Washer Karcher’s K2 Full Control, £99 from Halfords – buy here A jet wash for a modest price from one of the best brands in the business, the Karcher K2 Full Control has the capacity to blast the grease and grime off your motor. It’s lightweight and has several attachments to get to those harder-to-reach areas. To pair it up, we like Halford’s pressure washer shampoo. At £12, the shampoo foams and helps lift the dirt for a more effective clean. 2. Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner 500ml Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner 2.5 Litre Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner 500ml, £17.50 from Halfords- buy here If you’re going the traditional route of a hand wash, then Autoglym’s Bodywork Shampoo is your friend. A cap full of this neon coloured formula in a regular bucket is more than enough to cut through the road dust, dirt and bird muck. Soap your car down twice for best results and, ideally, use a grit guard in the bottom of your bucket to stop your cloth picking up scratchy debris that’ll harm your paintwork. Grab this Amazon bargain cloth, £10.15 for two. 3. Kent Extra Large Microfibre Drying Towel Kent Extra Large Microfibre Drying Towel Kent Extra Large Microfibre Drying Towel, £3.99 from buy here Now is not the time to neglect the all-important clothes and sponges. Drying off your car after rinsing saves an incredible amount of time. If you let it drip dry in the sun, you’ll have a load of watermarks to polish off. These come from residual salts and lime in the water of the area you live. The Kent Extra Large Microfibre Drying Towel is fab since it’s impressively absorbent, holding eight times its own weight in water. That makes it suitable and big enough for use on larger cars, like SUVs and vans. 4. Bilt Hamber Auto Clay Bilt Hamber Auto Clay Bilt Hamber Auto Clay, £11.38 from Amazon- buy here Granted, you’re only going to want to touch Bilt Hamber Auto Clay if you’re really committed to detailing. Claying your bodywork is considered somewhat specialist. It involves pulling a formulated clay block about the size of a Post-It Note across the paintwork. Using a lubricant, this action picks up all the residual microscopic grime and bits of insect. The result is a smoother finish, obvious to the touch. Award-winning Bilt Hamber is one of the few clays out there that works with just water, rather than a separate product. 5. Bilt Hamber Double Speed Wax Bilt Hamber Double Speed Wax Bilt Hamber Double Speed Wax, £18.24 from Amazon- buy here Bilt Hamber’s award-winning Double Speed Wax isn’t cheap but it’s highly effective. Apply evenly with foam pads. We love the easy-use, lint-free Meguiar’s Soft Foam pads. Once you’ve applied the product, it cures by dulling (or what the pros call ‘hazing’) then you buff to a brilliant shine. For buffing, we like these microfibre cloths from Halfords 6. Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel Bilt Hamber Auto Wheel, £12.95 from buy here This list might seem like a Bilt Hamber detailing party, but actually the brand just has incredibly reliable car care products. Nothing trumps Auto Wheel, a pricey but highly effective wheel wash. Turning a superhero purple colour as it breaks down the brake dust and grease, you couple award-winning Auto Wheel with the Filmer Car brush 18797  to minimise effort. An angled brush head, it’s only £4.16 to get to those hard-to-clean areas. Look forward to wheels that haven’t been cleaner since the day they rolled off the line. 7. Simoniz Tyre Shine Simoniz Tyre Shine Simoniz Tyre Shine, £4.38 from Amazon- buy here Simoniz Tyre Shine is the cherry-on-top and the best way to finish the tyres. Deepening the blackness of the rubber, Simoniz Tyre Shine leaves the tyres looking better than new, with a shine to invoke admiration. Once you’ve dried the wheels off, spray this tyre shine liberally around the wall of each tyre. Even if your motor is an old banger, tyre shine does wonders to make your car look cared for. It’s a particularly useful product if you’re looking to sell your vehicle, but it’s also great for regular protection and makes the next wash much easier. 8. Turtle Wax Dash and Glass Turtlewax Dash & Glass 500ml Turtle Wax Dash and Glass, £3 (Was £6) from Halfords- buy here Halfords often have this bad-boy on offer, at half-price, so be sure to stock up. Turtle Wax Dash and Glass is a smear-free, convenient way of cleaning up the dust from your cabin’s dashboard, screen and steering wheel and polishing up the windows, both outside and inside. Leaving behind a pleasant smell, Dash and Glass is in a handy spray bottle, is suitable for use on plastics and glass and is safe for all the surfaces kids love to touch. The price and streak-free finish make Dash and Glass a real favourite among its peers. What can I use to clean the inside of my car? Keeping the inside of your car clean is never easy. Even if you have stringent rules on food and drink in the car, more often than not gravel drives or freshly mown grass finds a home in the footwell. If you want to clean the inside of your car lightly, you’ll need a spray and microfibre class for dash and glass, a scented decoration to mask that cigarette/fast food smell and a quick shake of the mats. A more thorough clean involves upholstery cleaner and a vacuum with the skinny nozzle.

IF it’s not relentless mucky grit in the winter, it’s the lifeless bodies of squashed bugs in the summer. Let’s face it, your windscreen never stays clean for long. Fortunately, there are some glass cleaners out there designed to make light work of both oil and insects. Not to get too puritanical, but clear windows are of utmost importance if you are to have a clear view of the road in front. It’s the last thing you should do in the car detailing process, but it’s important. Once you’ve washed the car down with shampoo, paying extra attention to problem areas, such as wing mirrors, bonnet noses and the driver’s side windscreen, you should be good to get right to drying off and applying a glass cleaner. If you have some really stubborn marks, like tree sap or bird poo, you may need a glass polish to shift the muck with ease, without doing damage to the windscreen or paintwork. However, some of the choices on our list will be powerful enough to get rid of these tougher marks. Whatever you choose, you’ll need to be armed with a decent set of clean microfibre cloths. We love Halford’s 5-pack microfibre cloths, as the mixed colours help keep track of what’s being used where. Top tip: use horizontal motion to clean one side of the glass, and a vertical motion to clean the other, so if there are any remaining streaks, you know where to work it a little harder. 1. Autoglym Fast Glass Autoglym Fast Glass Autoglym Fast Glass, £7.20 from Halfords – buy here Firm favourite of pro detailers, industry car mags and users alike, Autoglym Fast Glass is a very versatile choice, given its streak-free finish works household glass, as well as that on your car. For use on acrylics, perspex and plastic windows – such as those on convertibles or garden gazebos –  it quickly removes that nasty film of dirt and dust from the glasswork, leaving a crystal clear shine. Insects, tree sap and bird droppings are also blitzed without effort on paintwork, the backs of wing mirrors and the windscreen glass. 2. Armor All Glass Wipes x 20 Armor All Glass Wipes x 20 Armor All Glass Wipes x 20, £3.50 from Halfords – buy here Not sufficient for a proper clean, Armor All Glass Wipes are a great way to keep windows clean in between washes. Handily stored in the glovebox, they can be brought out at a moment’s notice – great if you find you’ve parked under the wrong tree, or if a tot has taken a shine to the interior rear window after chomping on chocolate. For use inside and outside, leaving a relatively streak-free shine (though a quick follow-up with a microfibre cloth will leave a better finish), the resealable pack, will keep the wipes moist. 3. Dodo Juice Clearly Menthol Glass Cleaner Dodo Juice Clearly Menthol Glass Cleaner Dodo Juice Clearly Menthol Glass Cleaner, £8.62 from Amazon – buy here Recognising that alcohol is better at evaporating, leaving a more reliable smear-free finish than vinegar-based cleaners, Dodo Juice has created this mouthwash coloured and scented glass cleaner. Though the minty smell may be overwhelming for some, this glass cleaner reigned supreme over other glass cleaners for years in the annual Auto Express product tests – only recently losing out to CarPlan (below) due to price. Based on its effectiveness at dealing with grease and grime, this is still the best choice for those with a little more cash to spare. 4. Halfords Glass Cleaner 500ml Halfords Glass Cleaner 500ml Halfords Glass Cleaner 500ml, £4 from Halfords- buy here Specially formulated to work both in and out glass surfaces, Halfords Glass Cleaner is almost half the price of other quality choices on this list. That doesn’t mean half the performance though. Effective on plastic, perspex & acrylic, it can be used around the home, as well as on the car. Its streak-free, smear-free finish is a winner with fans, who take advantage of the periodic 3-for-2 offer. Great value in that 500ml size. Spray on, wipe off and buff dry. Perfect finish every time. 5. Meguiars Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner 473ml Meguiars Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner 473ml Meguiars Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner 473ml, £10.50 from Halfords- buy here Another contender that finds itself useful in the household, as well as on the motor’s glasswork. Meguiar’s Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner prides itself on tackling tinted windows, where streaky finishes are more obvious. Bird poo and baked-on bugs are quickly removed, as easily as road grime. The spray has a heavier formula, than, for example Auto Fitnesse’s 500ml spray, and the scent is far less intrusive than Dodo Juice. Though it’s pricey, particularly for a slightly smaller measure, Meguiar’s fans swear by its anti-hazing formula to provide long lasting shine. 6. Auto Finesse Crystal Glass Cleaner 500ml Auto Finesse Crystal Glass Cleaner 500ml Auto Finesse Crystal Glass Cleaner 500ml, £7.96 from Halfords- buy here This tough solution from Auto Finesse is committed to giving you a smear-free finish using a highly concentrated solution, effortlessly removing greasy fingerprints. This one is particularly smart for interior glass, where use of a sat-nav has left a funny ring and a patch of fingerprints in your direct eyeline for driving. Useful on the exterior too, the solvents in this glass cleaner are gentle enough on all kinds of surfaces, including acrylic and plastic, but powerful enough to shift stubborn marks. Your windscreen will look like it’s fresh out the garage. 7. CarPlan Screen Clean CarPlan Screen Clean CarPlan Screen Clean, £3.58 from buy here Quite the bargain, and carrying the prestigious title of Auto Express group winner, the CarPlan Screen Clean is both affordable and effective on interior and exterior windows. If you vape in your car, this will shift the greasy build up from the exhalations. The streak-free shine lasts a couple of weeks and will shift tougher debris, like bird poo and dead insects, without too much elbow grease. It’s worth running a clean microfibre cloth over the surface, once it’s been buffed in, just to get the best results.
