S-Doc 100 paint and plastic polish (220ml), £10.32
Time owned: Four months
What’s good? A little of this polish goes a long way. It’s safe to use on metal (painted or otherwise) and plastics (ditto) – so that’s the whole bike covered.
Getting a finish you can see you face in really is simplicity itself; it’s just a case of putting a small amount on a cloth and applying it to the bike, then leaving it for a little while and buffing with a clean, dry cloth.
It’s detailing jobs like this that make cleaning your bike a real pleasure – especially when it’s a Rocket III, covered in more chrome than a bathroom showroom.
What’s not? You might reasonably expect a free cloth considering the price of the 220ml bottle. But then, as with most things S-Doc, although it seems expensive on the face of it, it does go a long way.
