What's your favorite and why?
Liquid Turtle wax because I'm lazy and it's what I've always used.....and I like Turtles.
www.meguires ismy fav orite. thery have a syn thetic form,ula nows.
Back in the day I swore by Simoniz and Mequires. Now that I'm old and lazy I swear by Turtle Wax Ice. That stuff is amazing. I can do my truck in 30 or 40 minutes and never any white residue. Like all easy to use waxes it doesn't last as long as a good paste wax, but it is so easy to use I use it much more often...
I don't have a favorite polish but once you've cleaned and polished it. I go with Ultima Paint Guard Plus to protect it. You wipe on and walk away. It's easy, it protects, no visible leftover residue.
WOWA - wipe on walk away or WOWO wipe off products should replace most of the garbage out there.
I use mother’s carnuba.
It is a hard wax that you put on let it hazy then buff off.
I love the way it smells. A little like bubble gum.
I love Mequires products and have used them for years. And still do. I also use Nu Finish. I purchased my 2002 Trailblazer new and only used Nu Finish on the roof to see how the paint would hold up. I sold that truck 2 years ago and the roof was perfect. My wife and I bought a new Jeep and I am only using Nu Finish on it and It looks great. I am using Mequires on my Charger and its great as well but using the Nu Finish is so easy to apply and remove.
But you might need a turtle cleaning kit to properly apply.
I use Klasse high gloss sealant. Let it dry for 24 hours. Then come back with Griots best in show wax. I use this combo for "garage queens" that dont get harsh chemicals (i.e. deicer) on them.
Have also use 1Z Harr Glanz over Klasse. Not quite as shiny as Best in Show, but very durable combination.
Hint. Klasse + 1Z also works well on wheels to help keep brake dust off....
I have also used Adams with good results.
The best in show is decent wax that you can get easily at auto stores. The others you typically have to order.
Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic has been amazing for me. Application is simple and fast, makes washing easy, beads like crazy. Feels like cheating.
I like Jescar Power Lock Plus (sealant) topped with Collonite 845 (wax). I like Beadmaker after washes.
I’ve been in the car wash and detail business for Twenty years. I’m always trying new stuff when it comes out. I don’t use the aforementioned products commercially as they’re too expensive to use in bulk. I use them because they’re all easy to use and look and last great.
I like whatever the guy in the detail shop uses.
Turtle wax back when I waxed my cars. It was easy to apply and buff off. Now days it's the spray wax at Mr. Magic car wash. tom.
I buy from Chemical Guys and Griots. I know there’s better and there’s cheaper choices too, but I like the variety.
A coat of sealant and I’m good for six months.
Nufinish liquid for the red Subaru. Durable, easy on/off and also works in the brass tumbler.
Meguiar's NXT Tech Wax 2.0 for the Black Mustang. Not as durable but better gloss and easy to apply and remove for more frequent application.
Eagle One Wax as U Dry for quick shine while drying after a wash.
Edit to add-Nufinish paste cleans better and has better durability but is harder to remove when applying,
Same here. Turtle wax twice a year on the Mercedes. Of course, its always garaged so it usually looks pretty good. The Beetle gets same, maybe once a year.
Lucas Oil Slick Mist.
Its not a wax per se. You spray it on a clean vehicle, wet or dry, and wipe it off. Leaves a durable, glossy shine. I use it on the windshield and, at speed, do not need to use the wipers as the water just flies off.
Otherwise, I use Nu Finish - which is pretty dang awesome.
Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating. I used to use Turtle Wax Ice, but this new Ceramic stuff is a step up.
