Even better, it is a cheap household item so say goodbye to forking out a load of cash on cleaning products or a trip to the carwash.

Once the two are mixed together spray it onto a cotton cloth and rub it into the alloy.

Make sure you have an even layer of the mixture on the alloy and leave for 10 minutes.
