Broken: Tire gloss packaging

The attached is a great, long lasting liquid tire shine product. But geez, it comes in a clear plastic bottle, is purple in color, and smells incredibly like grape soda! Keep it away from the children!


It smells like... grape soda?

Yes, it has a rather pleasant, very noticeable scent of grape soda or grape-flavored candy.

By the way, this product is simply far and above the best tire-shine product I've ever used. It's relatively viscous in comparison to other products in this category (most other products in this category are spray-on, rather than wipe-on like Meguiar's) and lasts a very long time. It's rather greasy/oily though.

You need to check out the website for This stuff is unbelievable. Totally different from any other product. A little pricey, but goes a long way and lasts longer than anything I've ever used in the past. Great shine, no sling-off at all.

In the old days before everyone had to have some trumped-up, yuppity, glamourGLO stuff, we used SUGAR water.

course we could do them more often cause we didn't have computers to spend all this productive time on.

This could be dangerous. But most kids don't associate grape soda with shiny tires.

At least I didn't.

But you might have.
