    Cali Gold Cleaner Wax vs Marine Cleaner Wax

    I recently used the Marine Cleaner Wax to polish out a car with very oxidised solid white paint (not gel coat). I used a wool pad on a forced rotation polisher.

    It worked really well, good dwell time, removed all oxidation and left a brilliant shine. I was very impressed. I tried it side by side with DG501 and had similar results. The DG501 maybe having a little more cut.

    I have an opportunity to get a few bottles of the Cali Gold Cleaner Wax at a good price.

    I was wondering if the CG Cleaner Wax would cut as well as the Marine version on oxidised white paint (not gel coat)?
    Thanks Dispatch thanked for this post

    Dear Alfisti,

    We`re glad to hear you had a great experience with our Mothers Marine Cleaner Wax. Please note that our Marine line is not currently being produced due to supply-chain challenges, so you may not even be able to find it anymore.

    I would certainly consider the California Gold Brazilian Carnauba Cleaner Wax, as it also has great cutting properties to remove oxidation from gelcoat as well as paint. It might behave in a slightly different fashion, but might be impressed by its performance and you should be able to achieve similar excellent results.

    Thanks for using Mothers!

    I can confirm the cleaner wax is excellent for cutting oxidation as is the step 1 in the 3 step system.

    Re: Cali Gold Cleaner Wax vs Marine Cleaner Wax

    Thank you Jim and Dan, I look forward to trying the CG version.

    I still have some Marine cleaner wax so I`ll do a side-by-side comparison and I`ll report back when I get the chance.

    Btw, I`m a professional detailer and use many, many brands.

    I know Mothers doesn`t get the appreciation it deserves on Autopia, even from the beginning. But I appreciate Mothers and use several of their products. I really miss the Reflections line.

    I`d say Meguiars vs Mothers, almost every product to product comparison that I`ve used, Mothers comes out on top.

    Hey Forrest
    Mother’s Back to Black tire cleaner is a highly under-rated product. One of my faves.
