Has anyone ever used the undercar dirt repellant that is made from lanolin? It is available in a few states and we are wondering whether it is worthwhile getting for the underneath of our car? Apparently it is sprayed to the bottom of your car.Any thoughts/comments from users?

Mostly used as rust protection. No personal experience but I've noticed postings elsewhere from ppls who are happy.

I'd feel a little sheepish ... but then again I'm not a kiwi.

a number of years ago a rep gave a lot samples to try in the marine environment i was previously working in. used it on winches, wire ropes, bolts and all over the place. did not seem to cause any harm - then again it didn't do anything different to any other rust/water repellant on the market. sort of a nicer smell (you need all the nice smells possible when locked up with sweaty boaties for weeks on end). since then i have tried to purchase it but can't find it anywhere so just go with the good old c.c. any reps read this get in contact and i am willing to try free samples again. rgds

Maverick, any of the marine shops should have it. It's called Lanox (made by Inox ;-) ) and it comes in either pressure-paks or bottles.
Good stuff!

Makes you wonder how they thought up this product to begin with. Maybe some joker ran over some sheep & got his car serviced a few weks later, and the mechanic said it was really really clean underneath!

Hi Liz,

I have used Lanotec spray as a rust prevention measure & it seems to be doing the job, it seems to resist washing off... not sure about the mud coming off easier though. The lanolin stays a bit sticky & does attract the dust a bit.

The spray is good for getting at those hard to reach places.
I also sprayed my engine bay & it smells a bit when it gets hot.
Cheers Rowler (dave)
