How does it work?

Easy to use, simply grab the gel and press it against a tainted surface and pull back slowly to remove any dirt. The ColorCoral Cleaning Gel is made of high-tech cleaning material that is finished with sweet notes of lavender. When you’re finished cleaning, put it back into its container and keep in a cool place like the glove compartment for safekeeping. Best of all the gel can be used over and over. Change of colour will indicate when it’s ready to be replaced.

The cleaning gel can also be useful in your home and office. Use it to remove the dust from your keyboard, printer, cell phone, calculator, TV remote and some furniture.

"I LOVE IT! For someone who's a clean freak, I am so happy to have this. It makes it so easy to clean the hard to reach spots in my car. I've been using small portions of it until it turns greenish, so it's really worth it," noted one reviewer.

“Very convenient and useful, I keep one in my car now for easy cleaning," shared another. "The gel itself is forgiving on most surfaces and will pickup everything it touches without leaving residue. I use it on my car and PC, it's even replaced my air duster. My only gripe is that it can't be washed out, but there's very little anyone can do about that considering the nature of the product."

At just $12 while it's on sale, this convenient cleaning gel is a must-have for any car or office.
