When you wax your car, you're adding a protective barrier over the paint, since the clear coat of wax will take no damage to your car paint. So if you're looking for a way to protect your car from scratches and chips in the paint, waxing it is the way to go.
-Paste Wax: Paste waxes also take a bit of work to apply but dry quickly with the haze appearing in as little as 30 seconds. The extra effort required to apply paste wax gives you a more durable shine that lasts longer. It can be tricky to remove from the bottom of the container as you near the end.
-Liquid Wax: A liquid wax is a good choice to clean while adding gloss and protection. It can be a bit tricky to apply evenly and buff out, but it dries quickly.
-Spray Wax: If you have a newer car with paint in great condition, a quick spray wax is an easy way to refresh the shine. The downside to a spray wax is that it doesn’t clean as deeply, is less resistant to the weather and is the least durable of the lot.
Applying car wax is a fairly straightforward process. However, there are a few important details that should be followed to produce a high-quality shine and protective layer.
-Apply car wax in the shade: When car wax dries too quickly or becomes heated, it will infuse on the body, making it difficult to apply or remove.
-Apply it slowly–and with thin coats: The key to the successful application of car wax is like good BBQ – slow and low. Apply thin layers of wax – let it dry; then remove by buffing. Complete this process multiple times for an elegant shine.
-Buff–Buff–and Buff again: Always follow the recommendation of the manufacture, but make sure to use multiple clean microfiber towels or recommended materials to remove the wax.
