    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax

    Mike, I have one question if you don't mind:

    How does UW&W compare to Gold Class in terms of lubricity? The lubricity is the reason why I use GC because my ultimate goal when washing is to prevent as many swirls as possible whilst still cleaning the car. Is UW&W more like NXT Wash in this way or is the lubricity on par (or perhaps more) than GC? Thanks a lot.

    From my experience, I believe it's more important to emphasize technique and tools used rather than just soap alone.

    Yes, but keep in mind this was on a very well maintained vehicle with a good coat of wax on it. This product is NOT a substitute for a proper waxing, and if you have a neglected finish don't expect miracles!

    Wipe your wash mitt over a panel, removing dirt, and you're going to leave some wash solution behind, no? There's the beginning of your dwell time. How long you leave it there is up to you - wash one panel and rinse, or two or three? Just don't let it dry on the surface, same as you wouldn't let any other car wash dry on the surface.

    Give us a bit to see if we can find the answer to this.

    The simple act of wiping a towel over the paint may remove a tiny bit of what's on the paint, but it's very minimal. When using a non cleaning product like QD, Last Touch, M34, UQD, etc then it's even less. Certainly not anything to worry about.

    See note above.

    Absolutely, although some soaps do have better emulsifying and cleaning agents than others. But that alone won't overcome really poor washing technique.

    Question Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax

    Odd question, but is this product going to soak-up into your drying media after the car is rinsed off?

    I don't always wash my drying media after each use, but I do rinse them out in clean water before the car is dried and before hanging the media up to dry.

    Just wondering if UW&W will accumulate on a chamois and degrade its drying abilities.

    That's a good point. I know some WAUD products make my WW towels water-repellent and are trashed.

    Will UW&W make WW towels hydrophobic since they contain dispersed waxes that will sit in the fibres?

    I don't think I've ever found NXT wash OTC. It is my go to wash and I usually have at least one order of 3 64oz. bottles from ADS a year.

    I would love to see this available in retail locations and make it my new wash.

    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax

    Will the UWW cause any issues to the front windscreen? Streaks or maybe some sort of wiper juddering?
    UQD seems to be ok with the front windscreen..
    So how about UWW?

    I suspect UWW will be well sorted out as you'd expect from Megs.

    Not a problem at all - it is NOT leaving behind the same sort of film that a proper wax job would.

    Mmmmmm..... not quite. Unless Red Bull has a slightly more lemony flavor we haven't found yet!
