    Is there any wax that is clear? Tired of the waxes that are white and after polishing leave lots of white powder all over the place, and the white gets in the hard to touch places and looks like dirt.

    Put on a sealant instead. Lasts longer, better protection. Most carnuba waxes are gone in 3 months max.

    You can also put it onto the black trim etc. and no white residue. or (you'll get 5-10 cars from a bottle)

    Etc.

    This is not true with Trinova Paint sealant. Took the white 4 to 5 months to start showing on my black plastic and on the plastic next to my mirrors. Looks horrid! I threw the rest of it in the trash yesterday. Going to use Duragloss #105 this spring.

    Sounds like you might be applying a tad too much wax. If it's giving you a little trouble to wipe off it's likely too much.

    None of them are clear like water? I see pink, white, gray but no clear ones. Have tried a few and all leave that fine powder when dry.

    Wolfgang Deep Gloss Liquid Seal is clear and you can spritz it on. I don't know how well it works by itself. I usually use the regular Deep Gloss paint sealant twice a year and then use the Liquid Seal once in a while between the 2 applications.

    Are you using a clean microfiber to cleanup afterwards? I know the white powder you are talking about, its usually due to applying wax in direct sunlight or too much wax applied

    In this order, right to left with regular washing in between works well for me, fwiw

    Actually you want to be able to see wax left behind so that it can be removed...otherwise it sits on your paint for a period of time, which if I understand correctly, is not good for your paint.

    I've found a product called Hydro Shine.... It's a sealant.... I love it.... Don't wax anymore. The snow just slides off the truck all winter and the rain actually washes the truck for me....

    It's a wonderful product.!!

    really new to all this, started by looking for clay bar- liked the Chem bros and went from there. Pretty happy with the results for these. Only problem is too many products- I can't deal with that many choices- lol
