Thrifty Vs Fifty : Ultima Waterless Wash + Concentrate vs Blackfire Interior Cleaner

Hi guys, this is the first episode in a series of videos I'm making called Thrifty vs Fifty. Essentially I'm comparing two products that can do the same function: one with a low price tag and the other with a high one... and to see if the added price is worth it. Hence, the thrifty vs fifty.

Today's episode is Ultima Waterless Wash + Concentrate (Thrifty) vs Blackfire Interior Cleaner (Fifty) on coated leather seats. What is the conclusion and where does the advantage go? Stay tuned to find out.

UWW+:

Price: $21 for 16 ounces of concentrate

Price as tested: $0.85 for 22 ounces ($0.65 came from concentrate, and 21.5 ounces of deionized water cost ~ $0.20)

Price per ounce of diluted product: $0.04


Blackfire Interior Cleaner:

Price: $18

Price as tested: $5 (sample product of 4 ounces. Free if you add to order of $50 or more on AG).

Price per ounce: $0.90 (note this is when calculating from 20 oz bottle, not sample)





Conclusion:

For a deep clean, I would recommend the interior cleaner. For a maintenance, I would use the UWW+.

Advantage:

Blackfire Interior Clean for taking off that white paint

Both products tend to give a bit of glossy/shine look for about 5 minutes. Once you dry both products and give it a few minutes, the normal color returns.


And yeah, someone was definitely going at it with the weed whacker lol
