Price: £10.99 A spray that tar­gets iron-based air­borne con­tam­i­nants on your paint­work sounds like the an­swer to a ques­tion that no­body was ask­ing. So we ap­proached Autoglym’s Magma, claimed to help wash away the afore­men­tioned nas­ties, with a de­gree of scep­ti­cism. Af­ter all, the car we’d just washed looked clean.

And for a mo­ment or so af­ter spray­ing the stuff on, noth­ing hap­pened. But then pre­vi­ously un­seen specs of dirt started bleed­ing red, as you see with mod­ern al­loy wheel clean­ers. There, as promised, were specks of iron-based air­borne con­tam­i­nants.

You’ve got to leave the Magma on for a few min­utes to do its thing, then sponge your car off again, but you do get a pe­cu­liar sense of sat­is­fac­tion that it’s cleaner than it was be­fore. We’re scep­tics no more.
