  • What am I doing wrong? Hyper-Wash

    My car is ceramic coated, and I applied Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax to my car a couple of days ago. When I washed it today, the water beading was noticeable, but after I foamed it up using a foam cannon and Meguiar's Hyper-Wash shampoo, the water beading went away from the paint but remained on the windows of the car. I thought Hyper-Wash didn't leave anything behind? Anyway, I applied Hybrid Ceramic Wax again on the car. Does anyone know if it's true that Hyper-Wash doesn't leave anything on the paint? Thanks.

    Hey SFM,

    Hyper Wash is a very bare bones wash and correct, it does not contain any wax or leave anything behind. That said, just thinking out loud here, although it works well in a foam cannon, it is technically not designed for use in a foam cannon and it's possible that because one typically would use more concentrate in a foam cannon compared to a bucket wash, that you could be leaving behind some general product residue that did not get rinsed off. Kind of a stretch but it's possible this could be happening.

    Maybe try to rinse super thoroughly, other than that, would recommend trying a different wash I suppose, like our Ultimate Snow Foam.

      Hyper Wash leaves nothing behind on the surface. What ceramic coating is on the paint? It could be the ceramic wax.

        I had it applied by a local detailing shop and didn't ask them which brand they used, but it's been years, and it beads pretty well. Thanks.

          Thanks for the response. I'll get Ultimate Snow Foam for the foam cannon and keep Hyper Wash for the bucket wash.
