That reminds me very much of the instructions that went with the waterless car wash I use: :-D

THIS KIT CONTAINS
4 X 500ML BOTTLES OF PREMIUM QUALITY WATERLESS CARWASH (50 ml CONCENTRATE)
*PLEASE NOTE THIS IS SENT AS A MEASURED DOSE OF CONCENTRATE IN EACH BOTTLE. YOU NEED TO TOP EACH BOTTLE UP WITH WATER BEFORE USE THIS SAVES ON POSTAGE COSTS WHICH I CAN PASS ON TO YOU*


TRIGGER SPRAY HEAD

2 X HIGH QUALITY MICROFIBRE CLOTHS (40cmx40cm)

It's probably just the wax (carnuba if you're lucky). I've used the 'Showroom Shine' stuff from the TV - bought a couple of bottles of it years ago and it separates if left over time.

I still won't use it on a dirty car, despite the claims - I don't care what they say, rubbing dirt and grime over your bodywork is going to scratch it, with or without this stuff. I only ever used mine after I washed the car - as it does give a very quick wax / shine.

I use it exactly as described and as long as you start with clean microfibre cloths and change them if they get too dirty I have never experienced scratching. I wouldn't advocate using it on visible dry mud so I usually use it just after rain and it is fine!! :)

A bit like MER, where wetting the cloth/duster is recommended when applying.

Try Blokada. There is a free version and also one that you pay for that adds a VPN.

An in-app purchase can just be an upgrade to get all the features.

I used it on my unbearably mess of an Android and now on the unbearable awfulness of my iPhone.

If it is any use to you Doctle I have an android phone and I use Opera as a web browser, which has a built in ad blocker, and Duck Duck Go search engine which keeps me free from google interference.!! :)

Paranoia rules here! :rofl2:

I have to use certain browsers for certain websites to take advantages of the features each offer - so have about 5 browsers I swap between depending on what I'm doing and where I'm visiting.

I also use Showroom Shine AFTER cleaning the car. The best things about it are that it just wipes off plastic trim and if you don’t notice any overspray it’ll still wipe off weeks later!

Mick - You only get junk mail if you give them your address, try using an alias email address that can be blocked at the provider, then if it works out fine you change the email address to you normal one.
Ads bothers me too, so Firefox & Bing for me all the way, PC & Andriod phone. I do use Google but only when, I either have to or want to.

It just seems odd that an ad blocker contai9ns ads. It might be adverts for the full version however my phone is older slower and the ads bring it to a crawl. I am back using the massive pc with a small 32 bit linux which is fine if not portable. Still Christmas approaches and maybe a new phone!
