Car Care & Detailing Forum
I had one last detail to tend to with the wheels - I recently had some new Yokohama tires installed, and there was some marring on the rims from the old wheel weights. I had used clay with little success, so I wasn't sure what to try next. I spoke with the guys at Mothers®, and they suggested I try the PowerBall on a drill, along with a little of their Clear Coat Wheel Polish. The PowerBall seems large, but it's amazing to witness how much it can compress during use. I wouldn't be surprised to see the PowerBall work its way through some extremely tight areas. The PowerBall made short work of my wheel marring, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easily it cleaned-up afterward. A good rinse with some mild soap and a lot of water, and it looked like brand new.

The outside of the Tahoe was looking better than the day it rolled off the showroom floor (some three years ago), so it was time to tackle the interior. My wife and I do a lot of volunteer work for the Great Dane Rescue, so I'll leave the condition of the interior to your imagination. I wiped down the dash and all vinyl surfaces with a little interior cleaner, and then turned my attention to the leather seats.

I'm used to having to spend a lot of time caring for my leather seats. In the past, I've cleaned the leather, buffed it dry, and then massaged a conditioner into the seats. Mothers
® Reflections® Leather Care is a one-step cleaner and conditioner, so I sprayed it over the seats, allowed it to penetrate for a minute or two, and then buffed the seats clean. I was extremely impressed with the scent - the interior didn't smell like a herd of 150-pound dogs any more, but rather fresh glove leather. The one-step nature of the product was not only a time-saver but effective - stains disappeared and the natural luster of my leather came back. And unlike so many other leather products, the Mothers® Reflections® Leather Care left my seats feeling supple and soft - not slick and greasy.

I realize Mothers
® is a Roadfly sponsor, and that you might think I'm heaping praise on them just for that reason, but that's absolutely not the case. I don't believe in giving praise to products that don't deserve it, plain and simple. Mothers® products have always done well in our Guru Reports tests, and many folks have been using their products for many years with great success. Their new product lines: Reflections®, Power Products and FX perform as expected, without the excess hype or exaggerated claims that some other companies rely on to "sell" their products. If the Mothers® products hadn't thoroughly impressed me, you wouldn't be reading about them here.

So, if you're looking for some high quality products for your car, be it a high-end European car, a hot new import car, or a run-of-the-mill domestic, look no further than Mothers
®. My initial impression of the products was extremely positive, and I'll follow-up on them in the Roadfly detailing forum in the weeks to come. When the bad weather finally breaks in your area, get yourself down to the parts store and check out the new line of Mothers® products - you won't be disappointed. In fact, I think you'll be extremely satisfied with the performance - I sure was.
