Lately, here in the Northeast, we have had the pleasure of mild and unseasonably warm temps. This is always an opportunity to wax your vehicle--provided the temperature doesn't drop below 45 degrees.
Recently, I waxed a vehicle with Meguiar's Deep Crystal Wax with Carnuba. I usually use Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech wax but I happened to be out of the product at the time--I found a bottle of Meguiar's Deep Crystal Wax--which is part of a three step system. I have to be honest, I simply washed the car at the self-serve car wash using the pre-soak and rinsed and drove the car dry. I then applied the Deep Crystal Wax to small areas of the car-starting in the back. At first, I thought, I will probably pay for skipping the first two steps. But then, I realized that I trust Meguiar's and all would be well--and it was!! For me, this is what makes it all worth while. I had forgotten how good the Deep Crystal Wax was--I hadn't used it in at least a year! The color is actually deeper and the shine--don't get me started!!
What I am saying, is that while I adore the NXT Generation Tech Wax, I came to the conclusion that switching up every now and then may indeed be a good thing to do. First of all, most waxes don't last longer than a wash or two or three. By waxing your vehicle according to factors like the weather, their elements and exposure to the sun--parking on the street, the wax seems to last longer. So a good coat of wax is a safe bet. I recommend waxing once a week during the paek of the summer--you can begin protecting and preserving your finish before the cold weather arrives. How well a wax performs also depends on how clean your paint is. Let's not forget the type of towel you use makes a BIG difference! I have found that using Microfiber towels to be time-saving and it produces an extremely high gloss! It won't scratch your finish so long as you use a clean microfiber towel--every time! Microfiber Towels Rule! Keep it Clean and Shiny! -Marie
