    I've used this a couple of times now on my truck and have been really pleased with how well it works and how long is lasts.

    You just wash as normal, rinse and before you dry spray this and then dry. It wipes right off, no effort and leaves a nice shine and wax feel.

    I used it last week and the dirt from driving on the freeway while raining just rinsed right off with the hose when I got home. I washed again today and it seemed to make the washing go quicker/easier.

    Works good!

    Definitely need to try this stuff out. Thanks for the info/review :thumbsup:. Does the stuff mess up the plastic trim?

    Not that I've seen. I put it on liberally and am not very careful. I actually use it on my windows and headlights. It works great and doesn't leave any film that I can see.

    This product and Ice quick detailer both work great as a spray before you dry. Always awesome to get everything done in one step.

    Eagle One and Meguiar's UQW are also good products.

    Even the spray waxes that don't say 'wax as you dry' can be used that way if they are water-based. Our wax is the same way.

    None of the sprays stain, that I'm aware of.

    Duragloss Aquawax is one of the easiest ones to remove but it doesn't seem to last as long as the others.
