Found A Good Vinyl Decal Cleaner

I put Turtle Wax Ice (liquid form) to the test today. They claim it will not leave a white residue and will make all trim shine.. They are correct my vinyl decals looked way better after I cleaned them with the Turle Wax Ice. The product does exactly what they claim it does. I also waxed the rest of the vehicle with the wax and it left the car smooth as a babies butt..
Kit runs about $16 but IMO it's well worth it. It's one of the best waxes that I have ever used as far as ease of use. I will test to see how long it last, but so far I am pretty impressed with it.

With experience that people I know that use it, my cousins, it will only last for a bout a month to a month and a half if the car is a DD. If it sits in the garage and is only drove on nice days, it should last around 3 months. And nice color choice btw. Yellow was my first choice, but my dad made me get orange... The old man always gets his way lol.

Thanks for the feedback. This is the first car that I have owned with vinyl decals. The product I used looks really good right now, but if it only last like Iomcamaro stated then I will try the product you listed. By the way, where did you get it from?

Thanks... I almost bought that one today, but I did not see on the label that it would not leave a white residue. Now that I know someone has used it then I will keep that one on my list as well.

I used Eagle One Nanowax (same as Ice, but 1/2 the price) on matte black stripes for 4 years. Never turned white, or harmed the stripes...... A little goes a long way too. I didn't use half a bottle a year.
