Muc Off Premium Microfibre Polishing Cloth, £4.99
Time used: Three years
What’s good: I use this polishing cloth to give my Triumph a rub down after every clean. As Muc-Off promises, it doesn’t smear, is extremely absorbent and picks up left over specks of dirt with very little effort. This is all thanks to the “microfibre” technology hidden in its furry belly.
Use it on your paintwork, headlights, metalwork and it’ll clean off any residual smears very effectively. Keep it away from the running gear (obviously) and it’ll come out of the washing machine clean and fresh again and again. For five pounds it’d be rude not to buy one.
What’s not: Ultimately it’s not an essential buy, despite the impenetrable pseudo-science (see attached image) behind what’s simply… a cloth.
