Dodo Juice have this week announced the launch of a number of new products. Starting with a new version of their premium Supernatural Wax.

The Walnut edition of this quality wax will be available in limited numbers in a hand turned Walnut container which can be refilled for the standard Supernatural 200ml plastic jar price.

This new version also comes in the new super-premium packaging (including outer box and die-cast plaque on the lid) and is priced at £179.95

New Super Natural Clay Lube

The second new product in the line up from Dodo is the Supernatural Clay Lube available as a ready-to-go spray and also as a 1:20 concentrate refill. Supernatural Clay Lube is quoted as being a more sophisticated version of the very popular Dodo Juice Born Slippy.

If this is indeed the case this new product is likely to fly off the shelves extremely quickly. The 500ml ready spray version has a recommended price of £7.95.

New Dodo Juice Boot Bag

Another new product announcement was a custom designed ‘boot’ bag which essentially is a zipped case with adjustable internal sections designed to keep products and tools just where you want them inside.

The new bag can take anything from 250ml to 1 litre bottles with ease together with a range of waxes, brushes, cloths stored in the mesh pockets.

The new bag measured 25 x 25 x 25cm and has Velcro strips to anchor it in position during whilst you are driving! It is finished with some nice attention to detail, included an embroidered logo and branded Dodo Juice zips.  And the price? £27.95.

New Snow Foam

And last but not least was the announcement of their long-awaited snow foam! The Dodo Juice Apple iFoam is an updated and re-engineered version of their award-winning pH-neutral shampoo recipes.

The linger time is claimed to be “very good” with the foam itself reported to be able to be made “as thick as shaving cream”. Available very soon at around £12.95 for 500ml.

Detail Of The Week

This weeks stunning detail comes from Aspect Valeting in Portsmouth. The car was a 2008 BMW M3 which was booked in for a full paint correction detail being in need of some TLC due to light scratching, pretty dull paintwork and a fair number of swirl marks!

Products used were Envy Snow Foam, Waxtec v2 falloff for wheels, a full vehicle clay bar and then Meguiars 105 Compound followed by 205 polish. Finally a pre-clean ready for a ceramic coating application, including the glass!

The wheels were finished with Mitchell & King QD Matt and the tyres with Mitchell and King Tyre Rejuvenator. Finally Britemax metal twins (Easy Cut & Final Shine) were used  to bring up a mirror like finish on the exhausts.
