Do NOT buy this product!!!!

So, just been to halfords for some more shampoo and cloths and as its 3 for 2 had a look for something else when i noticed this.Flash Sheepskin Car Wheel Care from Halfords Price 7.99 3 For 2 On ALL Car Cleaning Products

Tried with some gold class shampoo when i got in and it is without doubt the WORST product i've ever bought. It didn't even last the first wheel, which i washed only two days ago so was pretty clean to start with. Halfway through the lambswool sleave just fell off.

I liked the thought of it being lambs wool instead of the usual bristle type and it was a decent shape. Needless to say this will be going straight back for a refund!!

It was the cheapest of the 3 things i bought so got it "free"! I'll just have to swap it for something else.

Yeah I got one and it fell apart too! Lost my receipt though to can't take it back! On the plus side I got it on the 3 for 2 offer so I suppose I didn't really pay for it!
