They might as well call this section zaino. Honestly never seen one brand so popular like this is for this car site. Its a great company but there many other good ones as well.

Thrillz is right. There really is a Zaino bias here. But to be truthful....

I ordered some of the Zaino detailer spray. To get a full detail will just let a pro detailer do it. I just want something I can quickly polish the car and remove dirt and water spots between washes. I'll try Zaino, will give my opinion once I use it.

The Blackfire line, Zaino and Meguiar's IMO are the best.

I think both are good products, but another vote for Zaino here.

Used it on all the "family" cars, which led to my detailing for people who have seen the cars in person.

Great product.

This year i changed brands to the turtle wax ice line and mothers F/X line. For over the counter dam good products if u use them correctly. From all the reading on the net i thought one use of the turtle wax ice line i was going to throw the stuff in the trash can. Boy i was dead wrong they make some wonderful products. My wife loves the smell of the ice total interior and does not leave that cheesy greasy look. The soap is really nice and the wheel shine looks great and has good durability. Here are a couple shots i took of my wife's car after i was done

I've had my Zaino kit for more than a week now. I'll let you know my opinion of Zaino if it ever stops raining this month.

I spent $235 on Zaino products after hearing and reading of all the positive comments here. To spend that much for me means either I am an idiot, or I trust you guys.

why the leaf blower? Leafblower=lowpowered sandblaster?

My shop vac is able to hook the hose up to the exhaust port, and the air going through is nice and filtered....


Wouldn't that be safer?

I'm laughing, because I spent around $250 too, and for the same reasons.

Many products will give users satisfactory results when they are used correctly.

It is all about using the proper tools and techniques during this process to get those results.

Here is my process on Number_9's initial treatment:
