A bug blaster that really works
TLAC Leading Edge spray cleaning fluid, 750ml bottle £9.60 inc VAT I must confess to being sceptical about fancy cleaning products – what’s wrong with good old soapy water, I have been asking myself for many years. Well, the fact that it would never shift bug stains and even substantial bits of dead insect from the back of the Cub’s propeller blades for one thing. Spray it on, leave it for sixty to ninety seconds and then wipe off with the microfibre cloth provided, it says on the tin (well, hand-operated plastic spray bottle). Two goes at this and a judicious bit of scraping with a thumbnail at those tiny corpses that had been riding with me for months, if not years, led to a wonderful sight: propeller blades that were cleaner than they have ever been in recent times. Seriously; this stuff really works and will do a wonderful job on your wings and wheel spats too.
