    Waterless wash and wax questions

    Product G3626

    So this morning before work I woke up early because I wanted to use this stuff I had a real light layer of dust on my car (white) got it all done in about 20 minutes and it looks great!

    My question for the masses is what is to much for this product?
    When would it be better to just wash the whole car over again?
    Can I do this every couple of days and wash once a week? (obviously if I take it off road I understand that dirt levels may be to much, but just general road dust and what not)

    Would it be okay to use after a couple of rainy days?

    What are its limitations?

    Also Can I do Ultimate Wax right afterwards or should that be only after a good clean wash? Would it even make sense to do a spray wax over the top of this product?

    Hi Blackjku,

    You said it yourself, if there is caked on road grime/mud, it would be best to rinse that off first or perform a traditional two bucket wash method. A really light layer of dust? You can remove that safely with a Quik Detail spray. G3626 Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax has some great cleaning ability, and really can be a true alternative to a traditional car wash. But, it can be used for light dust also, even though it can safely clean much more. Light Dust? Simply mist & gently wipe with a premium, clean, microfiber towel. Flip & Fold Towel Often. The more dirty the car, the more towels you want to use, more product you want to use, and more flipping & folding you want to do. Also more important to have a gentle touch.

    Awesome thank you for the quick reply Nick.

    As far as Quik Detailer vs Waterless Wash and Wax. When I have a thin layer of dust which of the two is best to use? (cost isn't as much of a issue as it is very minimal) (is there a better product out there?)

    Also do you have a preferred microfiber to use? I have a bunch of the supreme shines but was wondering if a thicker pile would be better for something like this.
    Not as worried as much about this with my white SUV but my wife drives a deep red car and I don't want any small scratches in it or anything like that because everything is extremely noticeable and would say the paint is soft.

    If we are talking specifically light dust, QD vs Waterless, the waterless technically is a more premium option, since it has more lubricants & also added wax. With that said, it is also really personal preference, for example, the new version of our Ultimate Quik Detailer (with the yellow highlight on the label) has a extremely quick & easy application. I have fallen in love all over again with it, LOL.

    As far as microfiber, I have personally used many different kinds, and end up going back to our X2020 Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel, honestly. With that said, I am a little bit crazy when it comes to microfiber towels, I invest in many, many dozen, maybe 100 - 200, and try to take REALLY good care of them, so I can get the most life out of them. Compared to only have a dozen or two, and using them for really dirty application; it tends to take that "new" feeling out of them much quicker when they are not cared for as well.

    Hope this helps and you are very welcome!!

    Re: Waterless wash and wax questions

    I use waterless wash in a spray bottle for light jobs and quick touch ups like when there is a light layer of dust on the hood l, roof, and trunk followed by my quick detailer spray.

    For rinse less wash, I use Optimum No Rinse Wash & Wax and think it's by far the best. This wash usually calls for at least 4 microfiber towels for the total process. Or the MF wash mitt with the little fingers or whatever they are called, then a waffle weave towel to dry, and another for detailer spray.

    There are several waterless washes that are good. I use Pinnicle, but Adam's is also highly recommended. Just make sure it's a concentrate so you can dilute in a bottle of water to make it last.

    You'll need a ton of good MF towels with high pile. Buy them in bulk and use MF wash detergent to make them last.

    My Quick Detailer is Adam's. I use paint sealant also. Have used Wolfgang's for years, now switched to Sonax Polymer Net Shield.

    Forget the chocolate.
    You guys got any of those flying reindeer? Or do we need to go further north?
    They could help out with traffic.
