What's New/Best Seller XPRESS Interior Cleaner.
Advantages/Features Designed for express applications, XPRESS Interior Cleaner was specifically formulated to effectively clean dirt, dust, grease, oil, and other interior traffic marks that accumulate through normal use. Until now, detailers have been forced to use harsh general-purpose cleaners to clean interiors. Traditional general-purpose cleaners can dry out leather, vinyl, and plastic surfaces. XPRESS Interior Cleaner leaves freshly- cleaned surfaces feeling free of residue. It is an effective product for everyday detailing applications.
Delivery/Installation Products may be obtained from authorized P&S distributors or through the manufacturer. Call P&S for a distributor in your area.

What's New/Best Seller Tri-color Foam Brush System.
Advantages/Features Tri-color foaming brush has become a standard on most new washes, but what if you built your wash before tri color was standard? Up until now, to add tri-color foam brush to an existing self-service wash required a lot of expense, and the hassle of installing complicated equipment. Blendco Systems has developed a simple yet effective system, which turns an existing foam brush system into a tri-color foam brush system. The Blendco system injects the tri color into the existing system and only takes minutes to install. Since it avoids the use of additional soap tanks, hydrominders, and related equipment, it costs much less to invest in adding tri color. It can be bought for as little as $750, compared to competing units which cost thousands more. Now anyone can afford to upgrade their existing self-service wash to tri-color foam brush.
Delivery/Installation Installation is easy - Blendco's strong distributor network is ready to serve. In addition, Blendco provides easy-to-follow instructions with each unit, and, as always, in-house technical support stands ready to assist. Call your local Blendco representative for a distributor near you.
