Help me find spray detailer

A retired professional car restorer gave me what was left in a gallon of car detailer called WOW. I used it all up last year and never had any idea it would be so hard to find. I don't know if they have gone out of business or what but I have tried every link that I could come up with on the Internet. There were a couple of companies that showed they had it but when I contacted them they said they no longer carried it.

This stuff is the best, you can put it on flat black and it won't leave any haze, you can also use it on your windows. Basically it doesn't matter where you spray it, it cleans everything.

Maybe some of you guys have heard of it or used it and can give me a lead on where to find it.

Sounds like a waterless wash. There are plenty of things that do just what you described.

I've never heard of WOW, but my favorite waterless wash is Ultima Waterless Wash Concentrate.

One $20 bottle makes 5 and a half GALLONS of solution.

I have never tried this product but I have tried probably 15 or more different spray detailer's and no question that WOW is my favorite. If I can't find WOW I will buy some Ultima and see how I like it.

Thanks for the info.

Pakshak is here locally on Oahu, next time I'm down there I can check for you if you don't get an answer.

Like above, I've never heard of it either but there are several very good detail sprays out there. Many if not all of them will work on all surfaces, including your windows. I regularly use CG extreme slick and V7 on my windows. Neither haze either. Optimum no rinse (ONR) is quite popular around here as well. It's also a concentrate that makes 4 gallons of detail spray for around $4/gallon.

Thanks for that offer. If I can at least get a phone number or a website for WOW from Pakshak that would be great. I emailed them tonight I will let you know if I do not get a response.

Thanks Russ

I've used a lot of the over the counter and boutique products, I've found Zaino's Z6/Z8 to be far superior to any other spray. I'm not a fan of their polishes but their detail sprays are far above anything else I've ever had my hands on.

Plastics, metals, rubber, vinyl, Formica, marble - all painted and unpainted hard surfaces are fair game with this light maintenance cleaner/polish. Just spray on, wipe off dust, fingerprints, smudges etc. - then check out the ultra-smooth, high gloss finish.
Sounds EXACTLY like a waterless wash.

They were one of the places I contacted that said they no longer carried WOW products. But thanks for the link!

I don't know man, but I've enjoyed the Zaino so far, but for cost effectiveness I've been thinking of getting some of the Garry Dean's
