Anyone looking for a quick way to wash their baby?

Turtle wax ice is the way to go for lazy folk like me

I've tried everything and I've no patience to wax the car for hours used to not any more. Seen this on their website and wasn't sure as I'd tried Autoglyms new Aqua wax with so so results on quickness.

However this Ice stuff is magic!!!!

I bought the Ice shampoo as well 26.00 all in If I can remember rightly. I was bold and tried it out on my lovely big harley, you people think you love your 500??? if I could get this in the house it would be there and I never like to skimp on cleaning products for her and believe me when I say the results are awesome!!! next up was Oscar (my wee 500) had him washed and cleaned in around an hour tops

remember though its just a polish and not a wax
comes with its own applicator pad and terry polishing cloth very good

you only need a little amount as I found out but you get it sussed after an application or two

try it you won't be dissapointed.

The 'ICE' is great stuff, none of that white haze and stuff you get with normal wax. Its expensive (IMO) but it does go a long way.

No corner cutting here I'm afraid.

2 buckets, proper paint cleaner, Dodo Juice wax every other wash(every 2-3 weeks).

In between it's 2 buckets & a quick spary of NXT detail.

quickest way is a car wash, although my car will never get the pleasure of being stuck in a box whilst being spanked from every angle a thousand times.

.. and for a similar finish - wash with a gritty sponge, use washing up liquid and leave to dry naturally!

Re: Anyone looking for a quick way to wash their baby?

I've always used turtle wax's "wax it wet" its a auto express test champion
http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/product...ax_it_wet.html and only costs 5.99. Just wash your car then before using your chammie or micro fibre give each panel a squirt of the "wax it wet" and chammy off..... that's it "done" as Gordon Ramsey would say. Gives an excellent finish and continues to bead for weeks.

I can also really recommend the halfords easy glide synthetic XL chamois again a winner in Auto Express recent product test. I was really unsure about a "home" brand product but by god what an excellent product and really well priced.

Finally been using turtle waxs "extreme nano tech wax for wheels". Its a barrier you apply after washing that helps stop all the muck, grime & brake dust sticking to your alloys. This one does take a minute or two to apply but It really does work and helps keep your alloys looking pristine.

Cheers

Yoshi
