No offence taken Paul.
I just can't trust the 'technology' of the microfibre cloths 'lifting off' the dirt. (as the adverts say).

I will be washing the van first, because the non-scratch feature sounds a bit of hyperbole.

 So what is the point of washing the van then using a product designed to clean it ?

Just follow the advice above and spray the stuff onto your precious dirty van. The stuff will then mix with any dirt dust or other debris and traffic film to create a nice powerful cutting paste. This will then inflict swirling and scratches onto you now cleaner precious van. 

How on earth can cleaning a vehicle of any sort be efficient and not do damage when using these products. 

Cynic me ?  rolleyes rolleyes

There is only one Motor Home forum that has a detailing section. I have no idea which nutter instigated it look here  but it is a very popular section indeed where people who are interested in maintaining and improving their much loved and precious vehicles can exchange and learn and hopefully not only pick up a few tips but learn faster techniques which save time as well........... Sadly its not here on this fine forum scratch head

There are plenty of you " YOU TUBE "  videos that teach the correct method that the experts use, with the results obtained, I have watched several, quite an education, does depend how interested you are of course, there are always owners like car drivers just a quick wash once a week and they are happy.

Just had a go at my Nuevo after just a water and brush wash.

Greetings fellow enthusiasts,

Despite doing a reasonable job on the car, frankly, I am not impressed. You seem to need to use tons of polish to really clean off all the remaining film, and I have ended up with a blotchy job. I doubt if the single bottle would complete the van
I have given up on any polish to produce a uniform finish. I think I will pay at the next show to have a professional job done. It would have been cheaper in time and money over the last couple of years of unsatisfactory polishes.

Got two more rallies to do before Christmas and I was hoping for perfection at at least one of them.
