BEST FINISH ULTRA GLOSS DETAIL SPRAY POLISH
Q. How does Best finish Ultra Gloss Detail
Spray Polish compare to Perfect Detail Spray Polish?
They both do the same job, clean, shine & protect.
and are both water soluble and biodegradable.
Q. Then what is the difference between
The Ultra Gloss Detail Spray Polish offers a little more
gloss and slipperyness but should be diluted 50/50 to use
on glass and plastic windshields. It is also a bit less
expensive to manufacturer.
Q. Why is that so?
Ultra Gloss is a poloymer based polish using polymers
that are naturally UV resistant and have natural anti-static
Perfect Detail is an acrylic polymer based polish
that requires the addition of UV and anti-static properties. The
amount of UV and anti-static is about the same for both properties.
The type of polymer polish used in Ultra Gloss also
gives it the additional gloss and slickness but requires
dilution to use on see-through objects such as glass.
Q. Is Ultra Gloss used the same as
Yes. Just spray on lightly, in direct sun if necessary,
and wipe off with a microfiber cloth (recommended). They
both remove light dirt, dust, bugs, finger prints etc. and
both offer true protection against the elements.
Q. Why two products then?
Perfect Detail is for the person who wants a quick,
easy to use product producing outstanding results that can
be used on all hard surfaces including glass.
Ultra Gloss is for the person wanting the ultimate in gloss
and slickness, even if it is just a little bit more, and was
originally aimed at the show car owner.

40’ motorhome. You mist it on then wipe off
spreading it over the area you sprayed with PERFECT
Q. Can PERFECT DETAIL be applied
directly to the dirty surface of my vehicle without
Yes, PERFECT DETAIL contains a cleaner can will
remove light dirt, dust, bugs etc. but use a
microfiber cloth to wipe the surface dry. If a
surface contains more than light dirt or dust you
can spray on heaver and remove with a microfiber
cloth. FOR medium to heaver layers of dirt you
should use our NO RINSE - WASH & SHINE, which is built

it is very fast to clean a vehicle. You can remove
much heaver dirt this way and still get a great
shine with mild protection. Apply PERFECT DETAIL after
you finish washing for the maximum in gloss and protection.
Q. How does PERFECT DETAIL compare to
other detailers and waterless washes?
It actually exceeds all other known detail sprays
and waterless washes in its features and benefits.
PERFECT DETAIL requires only 2 ounces to clean,
shine and protect an average size car. All other
brands require around 5 to 6 ounces.
PERFECT DETAIL can be applied in the direct sun.
Only one or two other brands can do this.
PERFECT DETAIL provides true surface protection,
lasting 2 to 3 months. Most others offer no
protection and the few that do put in a wax that is
good for only a few days and still not offering the
strength of protection we do, even during that short
PERFECT DETAIL works absolutely great on glass!
99.9% of other detailer products will tell you to
not apply it to glass because of smearing or
streaking. That is caused by the silicone and/or
petroleum distillates they use.
PERFECT DETAIL is the only product that contains
lubricants that bond to dirt particles preventing
them from scratching the surface.
PERFECT DETAIL is the only detailer or waterless
wash product that you can pour 2 to 3 ounces per
gallon of water and wash the dirtiest surface
without scratching, without rinsing and provide our
famous shine with true surface protection!
PERFECT DETAIL removes bugs as good as or better
than any know bug remover except our Bug Melt. Most
detail sprays do little or nothing to remove bugs.
PERFECT DETAIL offers amazing gloss, far exceeding
other detail sprays.
PERFECT DETAIL offers such a slippery surface
without silicone, that it resists things sticking to
it such as bugs, fingerprints, smudges,
smears etc. Bugs etc. can be easily wiped off with
a damp cloth.
PERFECT DETAIL has true UV protection that lasts the
life of the product, 2 to 3 months. Almost all
other brands don’t offer UV protection. The few
that do use an additive that has a life of around 24
hours since the additive is similar to the UV
protection you apply to your skin.
PERFECT DETAIL contains a strong anti-static
protection. Most other detailers don’t offer this
at all and the few that do use a short lived
anti-static add in that lasts from a few days to a
PERFECT DETAIL is the easiest to apply and remove.
Just mist lightly on and wipe off with a microfiber
cloth. The hard rubbing associated with
other brands is not required with us.
Q. Does PERFECT DETAIL offer
Yes, it contains polymer polishes that offer 2 to 3
months of solid protection against the environment.
Most all detail sprays offer no protection. The few
that due, usually provide only a few days to a week.
Q. Can PERFECT DETAIL clean and
Yes. PERFECT DETAIL can make chrome look absolutely
beautiful, keeping it clean longer than other
products. It is in fact the safest product to use
since chrome today is very soft and scratches quite
easy. Bug removal is a snap.
Q. Can PERFECT DETAIL clean glass?
It works absolutely great on glass, streak free in
fact! It is safe for tinted windows because there
is no ammonia in it. As well, it resists hard water
spots from bonding to the surface, allowing bugs
etc. to come off easier and make the glass crystal
clear. There is no better glass product available.
PERFECT DETAIL repel water?
PERFECT DETAIL is great for beading water off a
PERFECT DETAIL have anti-static in it?
Yes. It contains strong, long lasting anti-static
Q. Can PERFECT DETAIL be used on the
inside of my vehicle?
Yes, you should use PERFECT DETAIL on the inside
glass to clean off the film that get on the surface.
It is great for the plastic on the dash gage panel
and rear view mirror. It will not harm the finest of
leather or vinyl but is not a leather or vinyl
treatment. There is never any greasy oily feel to
Q. Can PERFECT DETAIL be used on RV?
Yes. It is perhaps the best single product to use
everywhere in and on an RV. Use all over the
outside to maintain that great finish and shine in
less time that other products, clean the windows
streak free. For the inside it can be used
everywhere. Windows, mirrors, cabinets, counter
tops, stainless steel surfaces, TV screens, showers,
appliances, bath stools. Just everywhere on any
hard surface. It will outperform all other products
in those areas. There is no further need to have a
cupboard of cleaning products.

windows, mirrors, kitchen and bath cabinets,
appliances and other hard surfaces. You will clean
windows and mirrors STREAT FREE! If you have
stainless steel appliances PERFECT DETAIL is a must
to eliminate the fingerprinting and bring out the
beauty of stainless. It also prevents stainless
discoloration. Counter tops especially the softer
acrylic type, marble, granite, Formica are great
uses. It will cut down on the wear of softer
acrylic counter tops. Bathroom fixtures, ceramic
tile, computer or TV screens, fish tanks, musical
instruments etc. are excellent applications. It
makes surfaces very smooth, so you must be careful
not to use it where you walk.
Q. Can I use PERFECT DETAIL on my
Absolutely. PERFECT DETAIL will give you much better
visibility, and also protect your windshield from
bugs and debris sticking hard. There is no ammonia,
no buildup and no discoloration. Never put

available at the gas stations on your windshield,
because you can ruin it. PERFECT DETAIL is safe on
coated and non-coated windshields offering more
protection than any other single product.
Q. Will PERFECT DETAIL hurt any
No, it is the best engine detailer you can get. No
powdery residue and it stays on to over 450 degrees.
Great for the chrome heads and pips of motorcycles.

Because of the premium polymer polish in PERFECT
DETAIL, it lasts 2 to 3 months. The sun does not
cook PERFECT DETAIL off the finish like wax which
can last as little as a few days.
Q. Will PERFECT DETAIL clean and
Yes and No. It will clean dirt off but not
oxidation. It is an excellent sealer for aluminum
against oxidation and water spots bonding on. It
also protects stainless steel against fingerprinting
Q. Does SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE DRESSING
Yes. In fact it may be the only tire dressing that
actually protects against the environment and road
Q. How does it protect when other
SHOW TIRE is made with highly protective polymers
designed to penetrate in the surface of the sidewall
and bond on the outside as well. It contains a
heavy duty UV and Ozone protection long with a great
anti-static treatment. The product is water based,
producing a silk to satin sheen. The protection is
so good that your tires will never weather check
(dry rot) as long as it is on the tire. If your
tires are already weather checked SHOW TIRE will
prevent them from further damage as long as it is on
Q. How long does the protection last?
Usually around one to two months depending on
conditions such as amount of road chemicals, type of
road chemicals etc. If the vehicle is laid up such
as an RV, protection usually lasts three to four
Q. How easy is it to apply?
As easy as it can get. Just clean the tire using
our CRUD REMOVER or similar penetrating water based
cleaner to get rid of dirt, grime, road chemicals
and possibly silicone based treatments you have used
before. This is necessary to allow our protective
product to penetrate the rubber pores of the
sidewall to completely protect the tire. Wipe the
tire dry after cleaning, apply SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE
DRESSING liberally, let dry and wipe off
excess. Your tires will have a black, rich look
resisting dirt and junk from sticking to them. and
you are ready to go. It should take no more than 2
to 4 minutes a tire. And will last for months.
Q. How much does it take to do a
Very little. A 20 oz. bottle should last around a
year. Even for larger RV tires.
Q. Does it contain silicone?
NO! Virtually all tire dressings are made with
silicone to produce a “wet look”. Even worse, some
are made using silicone oil (the stuff that does not
dry and gets on everything). As well they contain
petroleum distillates. This method is cheap to
make, cleans the surface easily and gives that “wet
look”. The down side is in a few days your tires
are brown and full of dirt and dust! As well the
sun is causing immense damage to the sidewall
because the interaction of UV rays with petroleum
distillates magnifies the damage done by the sun.
There is no tire manufacturer in the world that
recommends silicone, silicone oil or petroleum
distillates be put on their tires.
Q. How is silicone, silicone oil and
petroleum distillates damaging to tires?
Tires are made with a mild UV and ozone protection
built in the rubber sidewall. This protection works
its way out during driving due to the flexing of the
tire. This is why a tire that sits will “dry rot”.
The elements wear off the protection then start
breaking down the rubber. Silicone oil is the worst
of the products since it is the hardest to remove.
You can tell silicone oil because it does not dry,
it stays oily for a long time acting like a dirt
magnet. The tire has a wet look and even 4 or 5
days later you can wipe it off on your hands.
Silicone, especially silicone oil, treatments do two
bad things. The most important, they penetrate the
sidewall and block the built in UV and ozone
protection from coming out and doing the job
intended. Since these products themselves provide
absolutely no protection it does not take long for
the elements (mostly the sun) to start breaking down
the rubber sidewall.
Second, the petroleum distillates in the product aid
and magnify the effects of the sun causing a faster
breakdown of the sidewall than would normally take
place without the petroleum distillate coating.
Unfortunately they are hard to remove. Normal tire
cleaners or soap and water will not break down the
silicone completely enough but may remove petroleum
distillates. They don’t penetrate the tire side
wall to get the silicone out of the rubber pores in
the sidewall so it stays there doing damage. You
must use a penetrating cleaner such as our CRUD
REMOVER to completely break down the silicone and
get it out of the rubber pores itself. Then and
only then can you start truly protecting your tires
Q. Why does SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE
DRESSING work better?
Since SHOW TIRE is water based the polymers used are
completely compatible with rubber and the built in
UV and ozone protection.
Q. How do I clean my tires when
protected with SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE DRESSING?
Just wipe your tires clean with a damp cloth or
spray them with a hose and wipe dry. No need to
wash them with soap. That will just shorten the
life of the protective dressing. The anti-static
properties resist the natural tendencies of tires to
become static laden from friction caused by the air
going past the tire which attracts dust, dirt and
Q. How do I know when it is time to
reapply SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE DRESSING again?
Just wipe your tires clean. When they don’t have
that nice dark black finish anymore it is time to
reapply SHOW TIRE again.
Q. What happens if you stop using
SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE DRESSING?
Outside of loosing the great protection and look
nothing bad will happen. It will eventually wear
off and the mild built in UV and ozone protection
will once again start working.
Q. What about laying up a vehicle
such as an RV or boat?
SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE DRESSING is perhaps the best
solution you can have. Environmental damage does
not quit just because the tire is not moving but the
built in protection does quit. A tire will look
pretty bad after one to two weeks of sitting because
the protection is gone and the sun and ozone are
doing damage to the sidewall.
TIRE PROTECTIVE DRESSING will last several months,
three to four when a tire is just sitting there.
This will prevent deterioration from taking place.
IN FACT, AS LONG AS SHOW TIRE IS ON THE SIDEWALL NO
DETERIORATION CAN START. If it has started
(sidewall cracks or checks) SHOW TIRE will stop it
from becoming worse as long as it is on the surface.
vehicles such as boats, water will just bead off the
Q. Can you use SHOW TIRE PROTECTIVE
DRESSING on other surfaces?
Yes. First, use it on all type rubber. Rubber
roofs, door seals, RV slide seals, hard plastic
panels and items such as air dams, trim, mirror
housings etc. and to renew the look of spray-in bed
liners for pick up trucks. In a pinch it works
great as a protectant for vehicle dashboards.
Q. How does Prestige Protective
Polish compare to those sold in retail & auto
There is a world of difference between the two.
Polishes made to sell in retail discount stores have
one primary goal in mind. Have the lowest possible
cost to provide the largest profit margin to entice
the retailer to stock the product and to pay for
advertising, promotion and sales costs.
primary goal is to provide the very best protective
polish available at the lowest cost per application
and with the most features. To make the lowest
purchase cost you must sacrifice many features
including true long term protection.
Q. What is unique about our
Prestige not only provides the ultimate in
protection, it also cleans off oxidation as well as
removes imbedded surface containments. This saves the
recommended step of claying your vehicle surface to do this.
You are shinning, protecting and smoothing your surface in
one fast and easy step.
is applied by hand or power and does not require
buffing for that outstanding shine. It is
perhaps the fastest protective polish to apply.
Just wipe on an area, it hazes in seconds, then wipe off!
You're done that quick.
it is possible to remove all types of surface containments
while getting the best protection possible.
Q. On what type of surfaces can
Prestige Protective Polish be applied?
You can use it on paint, clearcoat, fiberglass,
Gelcoat, glass and chrome.
Q. What about the long-term
protection claimed by polishes selling in drug
stores and supermarkets?
Like all low priced products with outlandish claims
they use a very flawed method to determin how long
their product lasts. One of the common ones states we washed
a car 52 times and water still beaded up. This is
advertised as proving their protection lasts a
year. Well, water will bead up on a clean, smooth
surface regardless of the fact there is polish on it
or not. Also, what happened to the 52 weeks of
being out in the environment? They conveniently
forgot that! There simply is NO POLISH THAT WILL
LAST A YEAR WITH ONE APPLICATION, NONE!!! The
average life cycle of up to 6 months provided by Prestige
Protective Polish is documented by independent lab
testing; not advertising claims and is now the longest
available. We had a few competitors but the economy took
its toll on them. They all sold out to larger chemical
companies that sell mainly to the retail market. Each
one was diluted down to lower its cost to meet the
discount store profit requirements and they slowely
disappeared from the retail shelf.
Q. What about ease of application?
Prestige is about the easiest to use.
Simply rub some on a small area, it hazes out in
seconds, then wipe the haze off. That’s it! No hard
rubbing, no buffing, nothing else required. Your
surface is cleaned of imbedded dirt containments and
shines like heck. It is as smooth
as you want with the best protection you can get.
Q. What about fiberglass and other
Prestige works great on clear coat, paint,
fiberglass, Gelcoat and glass. Use it on
windshields to sheet water off and it will last
longer than the popular glass treatments such as
Rainex®. It will also protect all surfaces from
water spots bonding on and from fuel discoloring
surfaces. Use it on glass top cook stoves to
protect the surface from food sticking to it. Use
it in showers to protect against water spotting,
soap and shampoo buildup. Everything will remove
easily from the surface when you use Prestige, even
the acid from bird droppings and bugs. Our
Protective Polish can be used on most all hard,
Q. How much is required to do a car?
You should use around 3 to 4 oz. for an average size
car. A 40’ motorhome will take around 30 oz. for
the four sides, not including the roof. Many of our
RV customers report using 30 oz. or less for their
40’ coach. The exact amount used depends on the
amount of oxidation, imbedded dirt and how much overlap
you do when applying it.
Q. What is unique about Formula2
Formula2 cleans, reconditions and protects in a
single application. It does each of those functions
better than any other single product. As well, it
rebuilds the factory protection on leather and vinyl
that wears off easily. In addition, it contains UV
inhibitors and anti-static properties.
Q. On what type of surfaces can it be
Use on leather, ultra-leather, exotic skins, vinyl,
plastic trim and rubber trim, dashboards, seats,
Q. Does it contain silicone like
other leather products?
No! There are no harmful silicones or petroleum
Q. Does it get all over your cloths
and on the windshield?
No! Those type products use silicone oil that will
not dry and petroleum distillates. Formula2 is
water based and made of the finest available
Q. How does it compare to other
leather & vinyl products?
There are a few good leather and vinyl products
available. Of the good ones, they offer separate
cleaners, reconditioners and treatments. The total
cost of them far exceeds the cost of Formula2. As
well, you have to do separate applications for each
function so the time saved is quite a bit. There is
NO OTHER leather or vinyl product that cleans as
well, reconditions as well has the quality of
treatment to maintain the product in premium
addition, these products cannot be used on vehicle
trim such as rubber and hard plastic like Formula2
Q. How much does it take to do a job?
There is no simple or easy answer to that since
every application is unique. The fact is however,
you will use less Formula2 than other products.
Many of our customers report one bottle lasts around
DOES TEFLON® PROVIDE ANY BENEFITS IN WAX OR POLISH
According to G.R. Ansul of DuPont's Car Care Products, Specialty
Products Division, "The addition of a Teflon® flouropolymer resin
(Also referred to as PTFE) does nothing to enhance the properties
of a car wax. DuPont developed Teflon so this is direct from the source.
Ansul notes that,
We have no data that indicates the use of Teflon® "flouropolymer resins
is beneficial in car waxes and we have not seen data from other people that
support this position."
Ansul also notes that,
"Unless Teflon® is applied at 700 degrees F°, it is not a viable
ingredient, and is 100 percent useless in protecting the paint's finish."
(Source: Grisanti, Stephen, "The Truth About Teflon®", Professional
Car Washing & Detailing, January, 1989.) (Note: the Acrylic Silicone
Flouropolymer used in 3M®'s Show Car Paste Wax is not Teflon®.)
While this statement is in regard to car wax, it is also true for
car polishes claiming benefits from Teflon® or PTFE. At the time of
the statement car wax was the primary product used in the market so
polish was not referenced. Today, while polish has become the more
preferred product, it is still true that the addition of a Teflon®
flouropolymer resin does nothing to enhance the properties of a car
wax or polish. It is a simple truth, Teflon®, like silicone,
offers no benefits to the user of car care products.
DO WAXES REALLY PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE FINISH?
The plain and simple answer is, NO!
Then, why do many people say it does?
The main reason is misinformation. They see the constant advertising
and start to believe what they are being told. Also, many people are unfortunately
stuck in the past. What they think used to work should work now. Another
important reason is unfortunately, greed! Companies want to sell you wax!.
So many outrageous claims are made to sell products that most people don't
even think about the logic, or lack of it, behind the claims any more. Also
the manufacturers know most people are too lazy to check products out before
buying! If this isn't true than just think about why so many ab products are
offered for sale today. A little while after a new one is intorduced you can
start scanning the want ads and find them for sale. Why, they didn't work.
Most people unfortunatelly are always looking for an easy way out of doing
the work required to get the results you are after.
A sad fact of life is there are more lies, half-truths and deception in
car care products than in any other product area except health & beauty aids.
Why doesn't wax protect?
There are several reasons and this may take some checking on your part to
verify it's true but here goes.
First off, wax was developed to beautify, not protect. It produces a
good shine, just what it was developed for and not much else. The UV
protective value of wax disappears after several days. Wash and it's gone
at once! The protective value of wax for the rest of the things mentioned
below is none existent.
Wax adheres by sticking. It starts melting at around 120 degrees. It
does not put a hard finish on the surface. It is removed or penetrated by
just about everything. Soap, fuel spills, bug acid, bird droppings, road
chemicals, environmental pollutants etc. The UV protection added to wax is
not much better, if any better, than the UV protection you put on your body.
How long does that last?
To truly protect, the product should ideally bond to the surface and become
at least as hard and what it is protecting and last many months. In this way
it can better fight off all potential damage that comes its way. It should not
be removed by car washing except in microscopic amounts.
Let's put to rest the fallacy about Carnauba. Pure Carnauba is one of the
hardest waxes available, also very brittle when dried. Carnauba is not usable
in its pure state in wax. If you put it in a container you would have a rock
hard lump soon after it was opened. If you could get it applied to a surface
it would crack all over the place when it dries due to its brittle properties.
What you must do is add chemicals to it that prevent hardening, ever! So we're
right back to soft wax. Carnauba is one of the hardest known waxes,
does add a better shine than other waxes and does protect the best of all the
waxes. The problem is the protection is still very limited.
One or more of the major car care companies give out information that Carnauba
wax comes in various grades, from light colors #1 down to darker colors #2,3,etc.
and they insinuate the light color is the most pure and darker colors are not as
pure. The truth is the color of pure Carnauba wax depends not on how pure it is
but only on the age of the tree (Brazilian palm tree, Botanical Name- Copernica
Cerifera) when harvested. Color ranges from pale yellow to deep golden. The
wax comes from the leaves of the tree.
Carnauba wax is one of the hardest cosmetic waxes found. Is a very hard,
thick wax with a high melting point around 180-185 degrees (the pure form, not
what is found in car waxes). It is mainly used in furniture waxes, lipsticks,
and cosmetic recipes, and used to polish fruits and vegetables to make them
look better in the supermarket. It is an FDA approved product in pure form.
IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT PROTECTING YOUR PAINT!
The simple truth is Carnauba is almost as much a gimick as Teflon is for
protection of car finishes. Another gimick is the waxes that you have to
heat prior to application. Just more work for no more results. Liken that
to the old belief that medicines had to taste bad to be good for you. False
then as now. Modern technology makes truly protecting and shining your
vehicle easier than ever. You just have to be able to see through the gimicks.
Go back to before clear coat was applied to new cars, around 30 years ago
or so. Then go back to the introduction of car wax. During that time period
car paint was oxidizing right and left while people waxed for protection. It
was almost a ritual on the weekend to wash and wax your car.
Wax manufacturers began putting abrasive compounds in their wax to remove
the oxidization so the car could again shine. If you waxed your car every
week you never seen oxidization because the wax was always removing traces
of dead finish, not noticeable to our eyes, each time you applied it. For
those who did not wax frequently the oxidization became noticeable. You
were also removing paint every time you waxed. More than one person went
right though paint to the primer eventually from continued waxing due to the abrasives.
This went on for years with people complaining and finally the car
manufacturers had enough of it and went to the paint suppliers to demand a
paint that did not oxidize. The final answer after years of development was
the clear coat finish now on your vehicles. The UV inhibitor could not be
put directly in the paint without many problems. It could be put in another
coating that could be applied on top of the paint. Hence, paint became a two
step process, base coat (not shinny) and clear coat (puts on lots of shine
along with UV and some environmental protection.
It's true today just like yesterday. Car manufacturers hate to add cost
to their product. Why? It gets in the way of profit! The car manufacturers
had to take on the extra cost of two-step, clear coat, base coat paints because
of the utter failure of wax to protect the car surface from environmental damage
otherwise known as oxidation. PROVING AGAIN, WAX NEVER TRULY PROTECTED THE PAINT!
WHAT DOES WORK?
Polish, PROTECTIVE POLISH, that is. Not the type of polish that is designed to
remove surface swirls and other damage. That type of polish is usually referred
to as finishing or finish polish or finishing cream.
The protection contained in this type of product is inherent to the chemicals used.
It bonds to the paint surface, produces a very hard surface and great shine. The UV
and environmental protection can last from as short as one month to as long as four to
six months depending on the quality of ingredients used. Forget the lasts for a year
stuff. That's just advertising hoopla.
There are gimicks here also. Protection that lasts up to one year! As phony a
claim as those for wax. No protective polish lasts that long. The four to six
months protection is an honest figure for the best quality protective polishes and
no known reputable manufacturer will guarantee longer protection. These number are
also backed up by third party testing.
Another gimick was the one that started a fire on the hood of a car to demonstrate
how well their product protected. That product has been removed from the market due
to false claims. Many an idiot burned their car up by pouring gas on the hood and
putting it on fire. The polish company used a chemical used by the Hollywood film
studios for fires on or around people. It doesn't burn with the heat of gasoline.
Our protective polish will withstand heat of over 400 degrees but you don't put a car
on fire to demonstrate it. That's just silly.
If you want true protection just use a true quality protective polish. Forget
the gimicks, forget the cheap discount store prices (those polishes are basically
abrasive to clean up the surface and shine it, just a glorified wax), forget doing
things on the cheap! Buy a quality product and use it properly.
There are several waxes on the market that make great claims and do basically
meet those claims. They come from some of the more well known brands in the market.
The problem is these waxes are really polishes marketed as wax. It is easy to make
any product in liquid, cream or paste form so they make them look like wax.
