    i dont get what the brush with the soft tip wands are for :-/ . Is this for when you're cleaning the car, or are you using it on the cloths?

    Very funny Video John thanks again. We really love the videos you put out there for us and particularly the brand reviews especially. Is there any chance you could look at the Zaino line up soon so we can go an insight into the brand specially targeting show cars. The reviews of their products are all fantastic with them all looking so strong with no weak link. Would make a great video for you to talk us through their shampoo, polishes, and sealants. 🙏🏻

    • Forensic Detailing Channel
      Forensic Detailing Channel  Year ago +1

      can do zaino. I just know nothing about the line though. John from C&S is the main distributor. might be one for 2019 because I limit the brand review to 3 a year and this year is allocated. but its definetly a line Id like to explore and has a very solid standing.

    I actually bought the malt distilled vinegar and the brush from the links. I experimented with some really cheap rough microfiber cloths that I had laying around. I put them through the wash with 2 caps of this vinegar and I have to say I was very impressed!!

    John, any chance of reviewing the power lock and collinite sealant and wax combo what’s currently doing the rounds on TVclip stating they are the so called best? Always trusted your opinion, also how did the brite max extreme elements 2.0 do as winter has rounded off?!

    • Forensic Detailing Channel
      Forensic Detailing Channel  Year ago

      could be a cool recomendation I dont know Ive not used it as a combo. generally speaking youve got to always look for what the reasoning is behind it why its cool, and the better the reasons can be demo'd the better the recomendation is.

    • Nutmegg
      Nutmegg Year ago

      Forensic Detailing Channel I have seen a few videos saying using “Jescars power lock plus sealant” combined with “collinite 845 insulator wax” is supposed to give the “best” results on the current market for overall gloss and protection, seems quite a bold statement.

    • Forensic Detailing Channel

      gonna do something on sealants soon nutmegg. whats doing the rounds?

    Hey I have a question if you could help please I’m doing a 2 step paint correction on my truck I already washed with purple power vehicle and boat wash, I already clayed , and compounded, now I’m on to polishing question is I want to wash it again after I’m all done polishing before I put chemical guys jet seal and butter wet wax down. Would that be ok to wash again after polishing. I might wash again and use a paint prep after than apply the sealant. I know I don’t need to wash but there’s a lot of dust from compounding think that’s ok . Would love to hear your thoughts thank you

    • Chris Wojnarski
      Chris Wojnarski Year ago

      Forensic Detailing Channel thanks for the info just finished polishing last night and the is dust every in the garage and on the truck from the compound not as bad from the polish and it’s like impossible to get it all off even with a air compressor blow gun and microfiber towel that’s why I wanted to wash. Thank you again

    • Forensic Detailing Channel
      Forensic Detailing Channel  Year ago +1

      hey chris. sure. I do sometimes as well.. but perhaps after you have corrected the paint, dont do a full contact clean just either go over it with the pressure washer or a light pre wash, be carefull how you dry it.. be carefull if you use some sort of soap to rinse it that the soap does not contain anything gloss boosters or protection top ups, you want to maintain clean surface for your sealant.

    99% sure there is a difference between white vinegar and malt vinegar and it's white vinegar you should use.

      I use balsamic too I get it from JP Details moms house

      I use balsamic. Makes all my cloths come out brown though 🤔

    • Forensic Detailing Channel
      Forensic Detailing Channel  Year ago +1

      white vineger is stronger, but Im pretty sure distilled takes out some of the impurities. you can just use more as required. 2 caps of distilled seems about right but its hard to know.

    Do you have a tip on drying towels barely being absorbent due to overusing them with spray waxes and detailers? My Platinum Pluffles have gotten pretty bad at drying because of that. :/

    • Forensic Detailing Channel
      Forensic Detailing Channel  Year ago

      hey there, have a watch of the microfiber wash video on the channel.. although didnt talk about this specifically. microfiber when its new is at its best. its prone to getting clogged by whatever it absorbs. Its also prone to getting clogged if you use to much detergent. maybe once a year its not a bad idea to do a 30 deg short wash on your good cloths (and I mean wash them when they are clean not after use) with little or no detergent. then tumbled them on a low heat for 10-20 mins and air dry the rest. One guy said to me as well, the mad thing is even the minerals in the water thats in the wet washed microfiber towels.. that water dries away but some of the minerals are left in the cloth. sometimes also a hot wash is good if they are gunked with product. you can go upto 60 deg if you need to.. have a watch of the in2detailing brand review I did as well. because their 350 edgeless is so damn cheap you can replace after a year if needed.


    Some crafty ideas you got there Jon 👌👍

    I have a question I am a mini cab driver & now the weather is worming up it’s seat cleaning time - wet & dry seat. I usually use autosmart g101 but that can sometimes be a bit foamy do you any suggestions??????

    • Forensic Detailing Channel
      Forensic Detailing Channel  Year ago

      hey anthony, Surfex HD. very potent water based degreaser APC. At low concentrations, say 1-100 or even 1-200 its suitable for light interior cleaning.. And its not as foamy and g101 or say megs interior APC. Saying that you could literally just dilute 101 down a bit more to reduce foaming.. but give surfex HD a whirl I think you will love it.. any thing from bilt hamber is extremly well formulated.
