In this blog we will highlight products from the Autoglym range that can be used to clean, protect and maintain your caravan, motorhome, or campervan – often the second or third most expensive purchase you will make. With a little investment in a few high quality products you can ensure that your caravan or motor home will remain in an excellent condition and hold a good resale value should you decide to treat yourself to a new vehicle. Autoglym products are simple to use and will make subsequent cleaning easier. Most of these products can be used on your car too so the whole fleet can benefit.
Caravan & Motorhome Cleaner is a concentrated, multi-purpose cleaning solution designed for quick and economical year-round maintenance of leisure vehicles. Use on external and internal surfaces to provides heavy duty cleaning power wherever it is needed. This cleaner is highly effective in removing winter algae and stubborn black coachwork streaks.
Use on paintwork, plastics, metals, rubber, acrylics, fibreglass, wheels, windows, body trim, work surfaces, synthetic fabrics, carpets, hobs, washable wall coverings and similar surfaces.
Super Resin Polish can be used to polish the GRP and painted aluminium panels on your caravan or motorhome to restore faded paintwork and returning your caravan to an ‘as new’ condition.
Periodic polishing gently removes harmful surface contaminants and imparts a tough, glossy, protective barrier to preserve expensive surfaces from harsh environmental factors.
Extra Gloss Protection is an excellent follow up to Super Resin Polish. Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection is an extra tough, protective sealant that contains a complex blend of hard resins and waxes. Treated surfaces are protected with a super-tough finish to keep paintwork looking brilliant for longer.
Unlike a polish, it contains no cleaning or polishing agents and should only be used on clean, dry, blemish-free paintwork. The product has several months of durability and will make future cleaning easier as dirt is more readily removed from a waxed surface.
Rapid Aqua Wax is a fantastic top up wax and ideal for people who want to wax their caravan or motorhome in a hurry without having to dry it off first. Designed to be applied vehicles still wet from washing, Aqua Wax is specially formulated to impart a brilliant smear-free finish on all exterior surfaces.
The immediate benefit is that there is no need to dry the car between washing and waxing. Aqua Wax is suitable for all paint types, as well as rubber, plastic and glass – so you don’t have to be careful where you spray. Simply lightly spray on, mix the rinse water and product on the surfaces with one of the supplied microfibre cloths and then buff to a shine with the second.
Rapid Ceramic Spray Want to use a ceramic instead of a wax? Well, we can help you there too. Following a thorough clean and polish (if required) apply Rapid Ceramic Spray to all hard exterior surfaces, spread and buff to a shine. This can be used on wet or dry surfaces, whichever you prefer. Rapid Ceramic Spray offers up to 3 months of protection.
Fast Glass is a spray-on cleaner for rapid window cleaning both inside and out to produce a crystal clear, smear free finish on glass, plastic and acrylic windows.
Autoglym Fast Glass is free of abrasives, silicones and waxes and leaves no residue. As it contains no abrasives, it is especially recommended for use on acrylic and plastic windows commonly found in caravans and motorhomes where an abrasive cleaner will etch and haze the surface with frequent use.
Soft Top Clean & Protect Complete Kit Your canopies, tents or caravan awnings can be spoilt by allowing them to become grimy and water absorbent. Autoglym have developed an easy to use two-part maintenance kit to clean and preserve these fabrics. Soft Top Cleaner cleans, freshens and revives appearance by removing soiling, stains and atmospheric contamination from natural and synthetic fabrics.
Soft Top Protector reproofs, protects and preserves the surface from the effects of water absorption and surface soiling.
Instant Tyre Dressing after you have cleaned, polished and waxed your bodywork and have crystal clear windows, don’t let stained, weathered tires spoil the look of an otherwise immaculate presentation. A quick spray with Autoglym Instant Tyre Dressing is all you need to achieve the transformation to new looking tyres that will enhance the appearance of your vehicle.
The blend of durable polymers and protectants will completely revitalise your tyres, leaving a new look sheen. For an attractive sheen simply spray and leave to dry. If you prefer a more natural look, remove surplus spray with a cloth before drying occurs.
Foaming Car Wash should be used to maintain your now pristine exterior caravan or motorhome surfaces. This pH neutral shampoo will not strip away the wax protection you have carefully applied and will extend the effect of Autoglym polishes and waxes. Using washing up liquid or other stronger detergents will remove waxes and polishes meaning you will have to start all over again costing you time and money. If stubborn marks or black streaks build up again over time, return to Autoglym Caravan & Motorhome Cleaner.
