Winter Car Care with Automotive Detailer Joe Huntley
As we see in the new year, for many of us that means there are usually more than a few new additions that have made their way on to the ‘to do’ list, including some much-needed winter car care. Depending on how long you’ve been putting it off for (and sometimes, the longer you leave it, the less keen you are to do it!), you might be faced with a rather filthy daily driver to bring back to life.
Thankfully, we’ve got just the inspiration to get you and your wash mitt working away in no time. Friend of UF, Joe Huntley kindly took the time recently to put several products which are available to purchase from UF to good use on this rather dirty Mercedes A Class.
Joe has been detailing for several years now, producing a whole host of useful content, from simple product guides, to in depth process focus, all of which can be found on his YouTube channel – Joe Huntley YouTube Detailer.
We’ve posted his full Winter Car Care video down below, so as if you needed a good excuse to put the kettle on, grab yourself a cuppa, sit back and watch Joe bring this Mercedes back to life!

Below is a selection of some of the products Joe used in the video and if you didn’t have enough time to view the detailing video in its entirety, we’ve provided some handy links in the products below to take you exactly to the part where they are being used!
