Chemical Guys Revolutionary Wonder Wash on way to UK
Chemical Guys have announced the much awaited Wonder Wash, part of their “Vintage Series” is soon to arrive in the UK, although no formal date has yet been announced. This new product is based on the latest Suspension Technology where millions of tiny oxygen-enriched bubbles trap dirt particles and safely lift them away from your car’s paintwork, leaving a clean and slick surface.
Wonder Wash is also formulated to be pH neutral as well as 100% biodegradable. This means that Wonder Wash is safe on most surface types including single-stage paintwork, base & clear coat paintwork and vinyl-wrapping, as well as being environmentally friendly.
