A non-abrasive paint care system is what we wanted all those years ago, a replacement for a abrasive car polish, as we got sick of the swirls and damage the car polishes were creating to our beloved cars. The Paint Cleanse and Restore is the latest version of our original Auto Body Cleanser, and the biggest gun in our arsenal for deep cleaning and repairing paint, always bringing out a stunning deep shine, with no swirls! This product is a pure cleaner, so you need to finish it off with our protective car waxes; Carnauba Body Wax or Lazy Wax after using it.

We live in such a beautiful country and we can't escape what mother nature provides us. One of those beautiful things are bird droppings. I didn't realise a bird dropping on my car until 24 hours after it happened when I was planning to wash my car - After Rinse, Snow Foam, 2 Bucket Hand Wash, this is when I realised the bird dropping was etched into clear coat. After much Googling & research, I came across Bowden's article and followed each step. This product was my last resort before getting it professional done to be removed. O boy, am I bloody stoked and with a cheshire cat grin from ear to ear. It did take a bit of elbow grease but it's gone. This product does what it says it will do and it's really important to follow the instructions to get the best outcome. I've begun switching from Meguiars and now building up an arsenal of Bowdens products.

A great product to have

This product is amazing on my paint and plastic chrome. The best part is makes plastic chrome look brand new without harsh scratches. I love it!

Simple method but highly effective!

My missus had left bird poop baking on the roof of our 1 week old car for over a day without informing me. After a gave her a spray i sprayed the poop and wiped it clean only to find that it had started to eat into my paintwork. 1 application of PCR and my paint looked and felt brand new again. I was so amazed with the high quality of the Bowdens Own range that I went out a bought most of their other products. Great job guys you have really done an exceptional job creating this Aussie made magic!
