THIS new product faced a real challenge when it took on our top upholstery and trim cleaners. Its task was made tougher as it’s designed to tackle hard and soft surfaces, instead of specialising in one.
Chipex is applied by spraying on a cloth then wiping, and this counted against it when compared to Dodo Juice. A fair bit more chocolate was left, but only a little extra margarine.
On the floor mat, its lack of dwell time didn’t help it loosen the ground-in grime. It made visible progress on the marks, including lifting off the tricky ink, but it was a step behind the Halfords winner.
Chipex has an edge with its claim to leave an anti-static finish to slow dust build-up, plus we liked its ‘new car’ smell.
