We got hold of the to try it out on some of our test cars.
Armor All Shield Car Wash – Shine and Protection
The Armor All Shield is specifically formulated to protect paintwork and make it shine, using a special formula to lift away road-dirt and grime. This small bottle from Armor All is said to be good for 16 washes.
Using the Armor Shield for the very first time, I liked the look of the packaging and the mixture’s bright orange colour. The liquid itself has a very pleasant smell and gel-like texture, which was a little thicker than I was expecting. Once I’d mixed it with water in a bucket it soon bubbled up, and I used a lambswool mitt to apply the car wash to the car. All of the dirt appeared to come off the car pretty easily.
Once I had cleaned around the car, I hosed all the suds off. I assume there’s a significant amount of rinse agent in the suds, because the car wash seemed to just roll off afterwards, which was a nice bonus.
Drying Off – How Well Did it Work?
After drying the car down, there were no outstanding marks, and I was quite pleased with the clean. I would be happy using the car wash regularly on my paintwork to ensure that the protection is kept topped up and my car kept properly clean.
