Top Positive Review
First off, let me say that I have been washing / detailing cars for about 26 years. I normally use CG products, but I find this to be the best QD on the market. Ensure you use a clean micro fiber cloth to apply, and remove with a dry micro fiber cloth. Highly recommend this. Have a blessed day.
Top Critical Review
First off, the base of the bottle is so narrow that it falls over almost every time I set it down. This doesn’t go on as smooth as Meguiars. The microfiber cloth I use to wipe it off sticks more and leaves a bit of lint behind. I don’t care much for the smell either. It’s a very weak cinnamon scent, like cheap cinnamon gum.
Customer Questions & Answers
It’s clearcoat safe meaning it won’t scratch it even if there’s grime stuck to it besides dirt?
Obviously if your car is dirty you should clean first. This is a quick polish and not a replacement to a proper detail. If you have dirt and grime you should consider a clay treatment first. In my opinion this is a “quick detailed” – something you do on a show car that’s already clean and waxed and want a quick shine b??
Is this “clearcoat-safe”?
Answer: Yes, It is very safe on clearcoat finish . I love this detail spray . Follow the directions. Use it with all the other Mother’s products. All have great results!!
Is this safe for wiping dust off a waxed car? Meaning will it strip any wax off?
Answer: Yes it’s safe. I use this product as a fast car wash if not too dirty, to remove minor road film, bird dropping, & dust. It gives a great shine, and does not strip off my carnauba wax.
Is this fine to use to clean off bird droppings ?
Answer: Depends how long the dropping were on the surface. The acid in the dropping will penetrate down to the base of the paint and what ever you use the stain will always be there. I don’t know of any product that will penetrate that deep in the paint job.
