    Re: In praise of... CLEANER WAX!

    It really depends on the type of cleaner wax and the abrassiveness of the product. The regular Meguiar's cleaner wax (paste or liquid),ColorX, and #6 are fine to use as many times as you want per year. #66 should not be used as often.

    You can use GC, NXT, #16, 21, 26, 20 as many times as you want.

    Why would you use a cleaner wax four times a year anyways?

    I think quite often the average user has a bottle on hand and thats what they use, its easy to find in just about any store and the main wax of many. Isn't Meguiars Cleaner/Wax one of the #1 selling waxes?

    Doesn't everyone have a bottle of Meguiars Cleaner/Wax?

    Great write up! Thank you.
    I know about how crushing a house issue can be. We lost the top to floors of our house to a fire. Faith and friends got us through it.
    Question, Have you used the cleaner wax with a DA?
    What setting/pad and how long do you work it in?
    I bought one of those big bottles at odd lots.
    Got Faith?

    Re: In praise of... CLEANER WAX!

    If we wanted to do a quick waxing and used the regular consumer grade A12 cleaner wax and then topped with #21 or NXT, would the carnuaba in the A12 affect the bonding of the #21 or NXT (I'm thinking this becuase A12 is carnuaba based, and the NXT & 21 are all polymer based.

    Yes, I've used ColorX with the G-100. I use a finishing pad and set the speed to 1.5 and move the machine slowly, but I don't go over and over the same spot. The idea is complete coverage and letting the product work rather than the pad. We aren't grinding the surface, we're waxing... but moving a little bit of paint at the same time.

    One thing I wrote was "frequent waxing"; I also meant that frequent washing, once a week or more, is a major source of the swirls that we are going to prevent through frequent use of cleaner waxes.

    Tom,
    Thanks
    My worry is adding swirls by using the cleaner wax wrong with the DA.

    Just use clean materials and proper technique and you'll have no worries.
