    heres something i tried today that worked wonderful and i thought id pass it along. got above freezin today so i decided to wash the grime of the truck from this weeks snow etc. found out that all my car car stuff was froze. i was able to use the car wash soap ok but the wax as you dry was rock hard. instead of sayin the hell with it i thought how bout microwaving it on defrost setting. put it in the microwave and in about 4-5 minutes on defrost which i think is about 30% power and it was defrosted and usable. i checked it every minute or so to make sure it wasnt gonna explode.catch fire etc. hope this helps anyone out there who like me just cant stand a dirty truck and a wash just wasnt enough. the good news is the tire shine didnt freeze........lol
