    P&S Bead Maker - How often to use

    Hey everyone, so I love how easy P&S Bead Maker is to apply. In fact, it is so easy, that I want to do it after every wash. Could that cause any issues that I am not aware of?

    Also, since I live in Seattle, sometimes after a wash, it rains for several days and my car just sits there in the garage. Can I apply multiple coats of Bead Maker after each cure time? It seems more fun than just staring at my car.

    Let me know if I am overthinking this.

    I use it after every wash.....but for me, that`s every three weeks as I have three vehicles in my household to maintain

    I use it as a "modified "drying aid, just like I use Aquawax or UQW. I`ll first wipe the vehicle down with a thick, plush MF towel, using 1 towel for the whole vehicle, getting all the heavy water, but not attempting to get completely dry, wringing it out if it gets too wet.
    Then I`ll apply my drying aid, using a second plush MF, one panel at a time, this time wiping completely dry.
    I realize it`s two laps around this way, but I don`t feel it takes any longer than attempting to get a heavily watered or beaded vehicle completely dry in one pass.
    Plus, not using my PFM`s or premium WW`s with a drying aid eliminates the possibility of compromising absorbency over the long term.
    I still the desired slickness from my drying aids this way.

    Of course you can - will you get any added performance after the second coat, unlikely. Will it keep it fresh, yep!
