According to the page, it makes 8 gallons of clay lube, but only 2 gallons of detail spray

UWW+ makes over 5 gallons of detail spray for the same price, and it can be used as a waterless wash as well as a rinseless wash

Not that it matters, but I have no idea where you're getting your math from. Add 2 oz to a gallon of water for clay lube. So 32oz is 16 gallons of clay lube. Add 8 oz to a gallon of water for detail spray. 32oz is 4 gallons of detail spray.

I mean, buy what you want, I really don't care. But that's how it works out.

Lol no biggie. It probably amounts to a few cents difference, so who cares.

I believe so, however they match price and shipping I think as in if a product is listed as only 3 dollars but has 32 dollars shipping they will match the 35 dollars total price.

Todd, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Great info....thanks!

I believe the answer is yes it's fine, but I'm a detailing noob so I'll ask. Is this ok to use if I do my polish and wax by hand?
