SANSOM Car Care: How to Car Wash With Joe Huntley

We are lucky in the world of car care and detailing that we have so many fantastic products to choose from when it comes to the weekly maintenance wash. However, with so many options on the market, sometimes, choosing the right product for your task in hand can often become a tricky decision in itself.

For example, you are in the market for a car shampoo. Now do you want a shampoo and conditioner? Or maybe a wash and wax? Or maybe even a ceramic based shampoo? The options can seem endless and if you just want to get the job done well, but within a reasonable time frame, then take a look at what SANSOM have to offer.

We hooked our resident detailer Joe Huntley up with a collection of SANSOM goodies, before he put them to good use on a rather filthy Jaguar XF. You can view the full video of Joe transforming the Jag below or alternatively, check out our nifty links to some of the featured products being used below.

SANSOM Reactive Wheel Cleaner from £9.95

You will instantly see the chemical reaction taking place as Joe uses Reactive and a deep colour purple being produced as a result. Unlike most general purpose fallout removers or Ferrous Iron removers, Reactive has been specifically formulated for cleaning wheels. Combining iron removal with other degreasers and cleaning agents, they remove the oily dirt and grime that also build up on your wheels. On top of that, Reactive uses a non-acidic – pH neutral – high strength formulation, it even doesn’t smell too bad.

SANSOM Squeaky Luxury Shampoo From £9.95

Fast becoming one of the products that SANSOM lovers keep coming back for (and we think Joe probably will after trying it too!), Squeaky Luxury Shampoo is one of those ‘does exactly what it says on the bottle’ type of products. There are no confusing gloss enhancers or waxes, just a high-quality, luxury shampoo providing oodles of lather.

Using a blend of sophisticated surfactants, detergents and lubricants, Squeaky is a pH neutral formulation too, meaning it won’t strip any existing protective coatings that may be in place on a vehicle.

SANSOM Hydra Spray On Rinse Off Protection From £16.95

Hydra is the quick and simple way to add a long-lasting protective coating to all exterior hard surfaces including paintwork, glass, trim and wheels. In Joe’s video he actually uses Hydra on the wheels after cleaning, then later on moves the product on to paintwork and trim, demonstrating the versatility.

Once coated, Hydra will provide instant hydrophobicity and beading making for a much easier drying process with your microfibre towel. Offering several months protection, if you continue your future maintenance washes with a pH neutral shampoo such as Squeaky, you’ll extend the durability of the Hydra coating even further.
