    That's a bummer! Although I travel across the border to Niagara Falls, NY about once a month, so hopefully I'll find it at Walmart or Pep Boys or Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts.

    Hi imacarnut,

    1. We do not claim UVA/UVB protection specifically. It does protect against the sun & provides a sacrificial barrier against elements of the environment, like our other waxes/sealants, but again we do not claim UVA/UVB specifically.

    2. Yes it can build up. This is a good thing.

    3. We have not been advised or noticed any special care required for towels used with Hybrid Ceramic Wax.

    Hope this helps.

    Is HCW safe to use on soft convertible tops? Just got some from Autozone and hoping to apply this weekend if the weather is OK.

    There would be no harm in using it on a soft convertible top, but were not sure if it will work very well unless it's wiped in. We did not design or test Hybrid Ceramic Wax for use on this surface so it's tough to give a confident answer.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    I received HCW several weeks ago and applied it to my well treated/prepped Max and Accord, as instructed for 1st layer. For SnG's, I then applied it as directed to my less-attended '02 Odyssey, not garaged or prepped. I washed van, then applied HCW while wet, wiped dry. Quite surprised with results and protection it laid down. Several days later, the shine and feel of surface was not what I expected. I was very pleasantly surprised. I will be interested to see how well it protects and lasts on this vehicle. Low expectations, but high hopes! Love it on the other cars.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    How about the drying towel. Will HCW wash off in a washing machine? Or do i need a new drying towel each time? Reason i ask is because with this ceramic thingy on the towel it wont absorb water that good after a while-

    I dont have a "meguiars water magnet" but a smiliar, (same thing, different brand). it isn't cheap - so before i buy this i would like too know if it washes off and are ready to use after a wash in the washing machine

    Hi Snozan,

    So our Hybrid Ceramic Wax doesn't have the same properties as a "Ceramic Coating" which make it where the towel will not completely come clean. In other words, you do not have to worry about your towels not coming clean.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    I was very excited to try MHCW and ordered a bottle last week when Amazon got them back in stock. While I am impressed with the ultimate results in terms of gloss and water sheeting, I had an absolute nightmare of an experience with the application. I washed my car as usual, two bucket, top to bottom, under a carport. I then moved the car out into the shade and rinsed it before liberally applying the product as per the directions and beginning my dry. There was an unbelievable amount of streaking on the entire car. Vertical and horizontal panels had streaky haze and I had to spend a literal hour buffing my paint to get every last bit of it off. Overspray on glass took a similar amount of effort and i had to go over most windows several times. My matte black door trim appears to be permanently stained, as I have yet to find something mild that will successfully remove the spotty discoloration.

    So I guess this is two things. First, a complaint about what I feel to be a misleading campaign regarding the ease of use of this product and two, a question to find out what a) I might have done wrong or b) how to fix it now that it is wrong.

    Much appreciated.

    Edit: It should be noted that I watched multiple How-To videos, both from Meguiars (including videos posted in this thread) and online detailers/testers.
