Autoglym Interior Shampoo
A sparkling exterior is one thing, but you’ll also want to make sure your van’s interior is ready for the start of the next touring season. That’s where this useful Autoglym product comes in.
Working on interior fabrics, this is an efficient and effective way of removing any dirt and debris that has built up over a season of touring.
It’s simple to use on both hard and fabric surfaces – before you know it, you’re left with a clean interior.
Bilt Hamber Auto-Wheel
Best motorhome cleaner for wheels
Keeping your motorhome’s wheels in tiptop condition is another important part of the motorhome cleaning process.
That’s where this product from Bilt Hamber comes in. Available in a range of sizes, it will help you achieve a spotless finish for your wheels.
It’s a clever motorhome cleaner. While some acid-based cleaners will end up leaving your wheels with a dull finish, this product draws the particles to the surface without damaging the wheel, regardless of whether it’s steel, alloy or aluminium.
After spraying it on (while taking care to avoid the centre caps), you can watch the wheel begin to turn red to show the cleaning process is taking place – upon completion, simply hose it off.
