              You dilute it following the instructions on the container - so it des last a while!

              Spray it on the wheels, work it with a wheel brush, something like this......http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/S...?ProductId=510....... then spray off.

              Not sure about using on door shuts - Marc will confirm

                  In all fairness, you could use any spray bottles.

                  But these are the proper bottles and the head are suitable for chemicals etc so wont pack up.

                  Worth initially spending the money, then you always have them

                      I just use the Megs NXT Shampoo from Halfords, they do a big bottle of it for like £12.

                      I bought my bottle of it in March was my car every week, plus Macca and other have been using it when they come up and still got a lot left.

                      As for the APC and Last Touch, i bought them Back at the beginning of the year, use them all the time, and im on the last dregs now.

                      So worth buying it bulk

                            This is good if your wheels are really dirty:

                            http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wheels.../prod_499.html

                            But if you keep them pretty clean most of the time what Daz has said is spot on.
                            I see dumb people.......
                            .....they're everywhere
                            .....they walk around like everyone else
                            .....they don't even know they're dumb

                              once clean give them a polish , i`ve been using mer polish on the wheels , easy to apply and buff off and find next time i wash the snowfoam followed by a blast with jet wash gets most of the dirt off , owt left is removed by soapy water and a spong , always gives the burg wheels a glossy look so using on other wheels will be easier
