Zaino car wax is a very popular wax indeed! But just because a product is popular does not automatically make it great.
Having been a professional detailer for over 30 years I have a few opinions I have gathered along the way on my professional journey of all things of, and related to cosmetic car care.
The difference between my opinion and the bottomless sea of other opinions is experience! But not just any experience but professional experience.
Which brings us to the topic at hand:
"Does Zaino car wax represent the winning balance when it comes to finding a top rated car wax?"
My goal will be to help you find an answer to that question along with what I consider my top picks for car waxes that I feel represent the winning balance regardless of what level of car care you consider yourself.
When it comes to choosing a top rated car wax I put every product through the following metrics:
Experience has taught me that many guys become fixated on finding the best car wax. After all; who doesn't want the best, right?!
But what I consider the best may not be the best to you. What you consider the best may not be the best for the next guy.
For this reason I use my checklist as a filter that includes points many guys forget to factor in once they are over-run with the emotion of finding that silver bullet of car waxes known as the "best"!
Darren's "Super-Simple" pick for car wax?
Now that I have laid out my top pick for my keeping it "super simple" approach to waxing your car, let me add some complexity to this moment by laying out my top picks of car waxes for those who demand more or with special needs:
Darren's Note: The terms car wax, car sealant, car polish are terms that will be forever co-mingled by people. The understanding is that all these terms are used by people to reference any product that is designed to add protection and visual enhancement to a cars paint surface.
What you need to understand is that as a rule, car waxes are generally designated for natural, carnuaba based car waxes and usually come in a paste formulation. Sealants are generally designated for synthetic based liquid formulations. With that said, the majority of products are formulated using a combination of both natural and synthetic ingredients to make what are called hybrids.
Once again, these various labels are all used by people to mean any product wanted for the use of protecting and enhancing car paint.
I do not over-think this deep "rabbit hole" that will be forever debated as to which formulation is the "best". In general terms, it is wildly accepted that synthetic sealants (in any version: liquid, paste, or spray) are better for durability. It is also accepted that any formulation of a paste will be the better for visual enhancement.
If you have a definite opinion, you will need to read the product labeling to determine what the formulation includes.
My goal has been to offer up alternatives to the Zaino car wax that meet the demands of my checklist for finding a top rated car wax that delivers superior performance, an exceptional user experience, along with varying price points based on you and your world.
I hope I have further educated you in the complex world of cosmetic car care!
