Turtle Wax Car Wash
Going from Good-Enough to Better

Car washing is as basic of car care as it comes. Turtle Wax car wash is a good starting point for anyone.

Turtle wax has been around since the very beginning of cosmetic car care and remains a popular default to anyone looking to keep things ultra simple.

Taking Your Car Washing to the Next Level

While you may be well familiar with the Turtle Wax car wash product above, you really need to try the next level of chemical engineering brought to you by Turtle Wax with their new Turtle Wax Hybrid products.

Turtle Wax 53411 Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Wash and Wax-48 Fl Oz

  • The latest in what is called Ceramic Technology (also called Si02 polymer technology)
  • Wash your car and add both additional protection and visual enhancement to your cars paint
  • Creates what is called a hydrophobic (water-fearing) effect. This means the water will "sheet" away, rather than the traditional water beading effect most of us grew up believing this was the preferred and ultimate test of effectiveness. Water sheeting is now the preferred method. By creating an ultra-slippery (hydrophobic) surface layer, the water now "sheets" away thus not created water spots that can potentially dry creating the infamous hard water spots.

Turtle Wax Car Wash:
Professional tools to produce better results

You don't have to be a car nut to appreciate better products that can not only deliver better results, but also offer a better user experience.

Since most people look at car washing as a necessary evil, it is easy to kick the car washing chore down the road until there is so much dirt accumulated on your car you are forced into submission.

But having the right tools and products can make a massive difference in your attitude when it comes to the endless list of duties your car requires cosmetically. For this reason I add the following tools and equipment that I professionally think are necessary, but I also think you will find them additionally helpful in getting you better results, safer results, and overall a better car washing experience.

Adam's Grit Guard Wash Bucket with Lid - Professional, Heavy Duty 5 Gallon Detailing Bucket

  • Unique bucket system that traps dirt and debris for a safer wash.
  • Allows dirt to become trapped underneath the unique screen that is positioned above the bottom of the wash bucket (essentially you are creating a gap between the bottom of your wash bucket and the wash screen/insert itself, that allows the dirt from your car to settle below so that you are not reintroducing the dirt from your car during the car washing process, over and over again.
  • I also use the plastic screen insert after I am done washing my car to use as a raised grid that I can thoroughly hose-out my wash mitt with. ( I remove the plastic insert after washing my car, place onto ground, then place my wash mitt on top and hose out with the pressure of my hose so I have a clean wash mitt next time I wash my car

Ultimate Car Wash Mitt - Premium Chenille Microfiber Wash Mitt - Wash Glove - Lint Free - Scratch Free - Regular Size

  • The safest and most effective car wash mitt you can use
  • Not only does it safely remove dirt from your car as you are washing, but rinses easily and releases dirt during your car wash experience
  • Can be machine washed safely when you feel the need to deep-clean this wash mitt

A Better and Safer Way to Dry

If you are still using a traditional bath towel borrowed from your house you really need to rethink your strategy...or lack of.

Bath towels will truly help scratch your car and leave loads of lint as a rule.

For this reason I want to introduce to you a much better and safer way to dry your car.

Meguiar's X2000 Water Magnet Microfiber Drying Towel

  • Say good-bye to lint!
  • Say hello to safe!
  • The perfect size: not too big to wring out, but big enough to be effective.
  • The number one drying cloth on Amazon!
  • One of my favorites.

Become a Blow-hard

Most people are familiar with the dreaded drip marks that seem to be automatic with any of your car wash efforts. You wash and dry your car like a good little car owner and then you drive off only to have all the trapped water proceed to blow down the sides of your car creating unsightly drip marks.

There is a solution...

Chemical Guys ACC_303 JetSpeed VX6 Professional Surface Air Dryer and Blower

  • Blow off bulk of water to save time drying.
  • Blow out all seams and crevices to prevent the unwanted drip lines.
  • Also ideal for blowing off wheels and tires after you have washed them.
