Kenotek Pro Showroom Shine Detail Spray

I had read several reviews on this product, most overwhelmingly positive, and after giving it a try, it does live up to the manufacturers claims. The surface will feel somewhat slicker after application, and it does leave an Anti-Static surface. Dust doesn't stick to it.




It is somewhat expensive @ $22 for a 1 liter bottle (33.8 oz.)

I used it as a drying aid on my last wash done on Wednesday 12-21, and my car still has no dust on it. Normally it would have some by now. My car sits outside 24/7.

I've noticed if any dust gets on the horizontal surfaces after the car has sat for several hours, after a drive it is gone.

I'll be interested to see when pollen season comes along in the spring, how well the anti-static properties do with it.

Overall I would say if your goal is to minimize dust on your car, this is a fantastic product.

Some pics taken today (applied 12-21).

Another pic of the rear. This is the part of my car that usually gets the most dust, as you can see it's still really clean.

Mike, I'll be glad to put some in a spray bottle and send it to you if you want to try it out. Just PM me your address. We haven't had much rain here lately, so I don't know how well it holds up after a rain storm. I know Florida generally gets a good bit of rain.

It may come off after a rain storm, I don't know because my car hasn't been exposed to any since application, but this way you can find out before you get the liter bottle.

Thanks, that's very generous of you! I actually just ordered a bottle off Amazon. I'm running low on DS in my supply and needed to order more anyway, so I figure I'll give this a try. Even if I don't find it as impressive as you say it will be, I'm sure it will be at least as good as any other I would have bought. I'll let you know what I think when I use it.

I'm sure you will like it.

We haven't had much rain as of yet but did get 5 inches of snow this past weekend.

I did drive in light rain on Friday afternoon last week, then the snow came that night. It was very cold this past weekend (for southern/central NC) with temps around 7 degrees for a low, not getting over freezing in the afternoon.

Saturday afternoon I ran the car for about 10-15 minutes, and all the snow on the hood and top fell off when the car was warmed.

While it does have some road grime on the rear and front now, which is expected after driving in light rain on Friday, it still doesn't have normal dust accumulation on the rest of the car.

Of all the detail sprays I've tried, this one definitely leaves the slickest surface. It's also the only one I've used that does something different from the others, it gives an anti-static surface. I still haven't tried the Carpro EcH20 that I have yet, because I like the results of the Kenotek so much.

Since pollen season will come earlier for you then it will for me, I'm very interested to see how well it keeps pollen off.

Based upon how well it keeps dust accumulation down, I would think it should do a decent job with pollen as well.

OK, the jury's in - this stuff is AWESOME! I applied it Thursday after a thorough wash, and the car immediately had a glossy, wet look. Four days later and it still looks great, with just a minimal amount of dust settled on it - probably the same amount it usually had after a day or two without the Kenoteck. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but for a lasting showroom shine, it's worth it! No regrets at all.

Definitely worth a try. Even if you aren't thrilled with it, you'll at least be as satisfied with it as you are with other brand-name detail sprays.

Two days of rain, just over an inch, it's holding up well.

We're supposed to get a ton of rain here over the next 24 hours. I treated mine with Kinotek a week ago Thursday. I'm anxious to see how it holds up!

How's the anti static holding up? I haven't washed my car since I got it.lol.. honestly 3 years with no water washing. I don't take it out unless bone dry roads and is garaged from October to late April .. I just clean it with spray waxes and occasionally a good coat of hard wax. It gets light dust in the garage but I'm wondering if the anti static in this would help dust to not cling so easy.

The anti-static does very well on my car. But it isn't garaged.

I've seen two reviews on garaged cars, one person stating no dust after a week, another saying it made no difference at all.

Just from what I've seen on my car, I would think at the very least it would make removing garage dust easier.

If you would like to try it out, just PM me your address and I'll send you a few oz. in a spray bottle. I'd be interested to see what results you get.

Mine's not garaged, but it's kept in a carport when I'm not at work. After a week it had about the same amount of dust I would normally have after 3 days without the Kinotek. It's also great on the rims for reducing brake dust residue.
