I looked enthusiastically, only to discover that (Öcue sarcastic surprise) the 5 litre Wheely Clean does not presently exist on their site. Twenty litres, unless a couple of others here are seriously interested in splitting, is just too much for one person with a casual hobby.

I don't use much mainline stuff. Final Inspection for me, Australian made and owned, ships to the US now. Their wheel cleaner is pure magic.

I had a work colleague ask me the same question last week.

I directed her to Bowden's Fabra Cadabra.

https://www.bowdensown.com.au/fabra-cadabra

They even have a short video on how to use it.

After using the bissell today, it’s a great investment for car seats and car interiors. Along with smaller jobs around the home (lounge, small rug). I would recommend that. But also as above fabracadra is good too.

These little jiggers help prevent that in my detailing world.

Available at Waxit and Detailing Shed, although I found mine at Autobarn.

These are called Detail Guardz and are such a simple and effective solution to frustrating problem.

And speaking of hoses, NEVER EVER buy a cheap one. Cheaper hoses kink more, don't flow as well and don't last for long. Likewise hose click fittings. I a big fan of the Gardena brand, quality hose with quality fittings.

Absolutely a great investment. Mine are somewhat simpler, having no rollers. Crikey, they're a great anger management tool.
