Turtle wax ice

I know Turtle wax doesn't get much play because everyone likes the high dollar/cool name stuff....but.
Being the old school paste wax kinda guy I am....thought I'd give this new fangled synthetic stuff a try.
Much to my surprise...it does exactly what is says. You mist it on a panel, wipe it on, flip the cloth and lightly buff it off and...presto! Like magic, your car sparkles like a new penny. Cuts waxing time and shoulder pain in half.
I know this aint breaking news...just thought I'd throw it out there.

Picked a couple of bottles, last year, when it was on sale. Works like a charm!

I use the ice spray when I don’t have time to do a real wax job and does a decent job. Great at beading water too but nothing comes close to a nice wax job imo.

Agree. But when a quick touch up is in order, this stuff works well.

Do yourself a favor and get the Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray. You won't use wax anymore.

Wipe on, wipe off, or more complicated that that?

I apply it with a microfiber applicator to the whole car, then wipe a small area with a damp MF cloth. Then I buff it with a dry/plush microfiber cloth and the results are awesome!

This takes a few minutes longer than wipe on/wipe off, but the results are FAR better.

I'll edit this post when I get home to add a few pics of my results this past week.

I did another coat yesterday of the TW Ceramic Spray. I used the round M/F applicator and only did about a 2 foot section at a time, then buffed it off with a plush microfiber before it flashed. Worked great and there were no streaks or smears.
