I was quite curious about Turtle Wax's Ice. I waited to see if I would get any comments about it and when I didn't, I decided to take the plunge and pay $16 and change to test it. The package was very attractive and caught my eye immediately. Funny how we judge a book by its cover -- leasson learned today, looks aren't everything! It also came with an applicator sponge and microfiber towel.
Once I applied the wax as directed on a clean, cool surface in a shaded area (like most all others) it did apply very well. It was even and seemed to cover the entire surface with a microfiber sponge. I waited for it to haze and then I began the removal/polish step--I was not impressed with it. It left streaks galore and I had to wash my car to remove them. Also, when I noticed the streak, I immediately figured that I could just buff them out as usual. To no avail, did the streaks disapper until I washed the area with Car Wash soap to remove it. This is the first product that Turtle Wax has made that I did not like. I did, however, like the Turtle Wax Patinum Series liquid wax and Detailing Spray. When I say the commercial on television, I thought it to be comparable to Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax which is why I concluded that Turtle Wax's Ice, which is also synthetic, would be impressive as well. I thought that my black, regularly detailed vehicle would be a perfect specimen for testing. I was disappointed. Mainly because I paid $16+ for a product that In my opinion, was not worth it. I honestly can say that with all of the products I have tried, Turtle Waax Ice was a big disappointment. If you are a Turtle Wax fan, I recommend the Platinum line of products which are very user-friendly, effective and produces a mirror shine for days!
Editor's Note: I was recently at Wal mart checking prices and I noticed that Turtle Wax Ice has cut their price in half--could it be because it failed the consumers?
Turtle Wax's Ice did not work for me. Maybe it will work for you.
