    Re: Who`s tried FW1 cleaner wax?

    So... Did a wash on the GS, not optimal conditions, being in partial sunlight (tried to keep it as wet as I could).
    Instead of using this product to clean & wax, I decided to mist it on the car wet and dry it with my waffle weave MF towel.
    Instructions say to use product in the shade, and they aren`t kidding! I tested it dry, spraying on the product sparingly and wiping gently to spread it on, allowing it to haze for 20 or 30 seconds then wiping off with another cloth. Using my cookie monster MF, it would seem sticky-ish, leaving behind lint from the MF and not cleaning off completely, streaking and smudging somewhat.

    So in my case, instead, I lightly sprayed a quarter of the car, lightly spread the wax around with the cookie monster, haze over, then cleaned up with the drying MF (in shade now of course). This proved more successful in the end, however the 2 step process, I don`t think, is entirely necessary. I also wouldn`t trust this (or any other car wash in a can) to clean my car, naturally....
    Surface came out pretty well... I`m happy with the outcome. A nice wet look to the paint (maybe not as much as my Blackfire carnuba) but reflectivity is excellent in my opinion.
    No idea how well it`ll protect... I`ll just assume it`s a product to use weekly or every other wash, perhaps...
    Note, as well, the car has already been polished and 2 coats of sealant applied as well as a few hand rubbed coats of carnuba.

    Aw, I *like* `em! Love using my old 1Z Pro Line stuff in those metal cans And then there`s a certain LSP from FinishKare ...

    But as for using no-name Wonder Products (perhaps especially a Cleaner Wax), no thanks...!?WHY?! Lots of known-to-be -good stuff to use instead.

    OK, I give; what the heck is a "cookie monster"?! Something got "lost" in the translation from "some foreign language" to English (or am I being a facetious bigot)
