    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    This product has received way more attention than deserved. I bought a bottle of the original formula because it was cheap and I like to try new stuff. But after two uses I saw no reason to use Recharge over any of the coating topper products on the market. The fact that the manufacturer put the word out that the original formula should not be used with the wet method due to streaking and being almost unable to remove the streaks without polishing put me off from ever trying any Recharge product at any price. Too many good products on the market to use a pita product that the manufacturer did not properly test before selling. If someone has found a use for the original formula product, such as mixing it with a different product, I would appreciate them dropping their knowledge. I hate throwing away something that might be useful.

    Yes I got the email from them. Seems like they could not resolve the issue even on the latest formula update.

    Couldn’t agree more. Was way overhyped. The first formula did not last a darn. Word is starting to get around on social media detailing groups including the Hydrosilex pages.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    An update from my post back in April. I had Wet Coat on one side`s wheels and steps of my truck, Hydrosilex on the other. I`ve pretty much ignore washing in general lately, but haven`t really touched the wheels in 6 weeks or so. Wet coat is still there after 14 weeks. Hydrosilex was gone. No beading, wheels needed more time and effort to clean up. I`ll keep using Wetcoat, but I`m done with Hydrosilex. I think I`ll give Opti Seal a try next.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    After two test applications on the hood of different vehicles. I passed my bottle on to my Brother in Law. I believe, he used the whole bottle on his F-350 after one wash. Better than throwing it in the trash.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    I bought a bottle when it was 12 bucks on some special and its still sitting in my cabinet unopened.
    Based on all the reviews/ feedback coming out of the woodwork I don`t know why I bothered but similarly wanted to judge myself however with so many great products out there I don`t think I will ever use it.
    If anyone would like the bottle and will actually use it feel free to PM me your address and I will send it over!

    Very new to detailing and never used a a coating product before. Would it be ok to use on an older truck that has been neglected for several years? If your not going to use it It may be better than nothing which is what I`m doing with the truck now..

    I don`t see why you could not. It can be used on bare paint as a stand alone or topper for an existing coating.
    I can;t speak to durability but based on feedback here from trusted autopians you may be applying it often
    Just PM me your address if interested and I can ship it out this week.

    On dry paint it looks ok and leaves some protection. It’s just there are many better products. An old truck is a good match for Recharge. I would put a few coats on it and call it a day.

    My BIL loved it, on his 2008 F-350. He had been using Turtle Wax and Dry.

    Ok great. Yeah I don`t want to put the good stuff on an old truck so it may be a good fit. I`ll just use it on that until it`s gone and get some turtle wax afterward lol...

    Use it in the house...it works much better on granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances than it does on paint.

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    Funny because the detail section on both an Audi and Mercedes forum had several guys saying the product works great and is a game changer. Not sure if that was before they changed the formula or not, but I almost bought a bottle based on those reviews.

    Yep, I use it on the granite tops in the kitchen and baths. Never thought of using it on stainless, will have to give it a try.

    LGHT --
    "game changer" from what ? Turtle Wax ?

    And there are Corvette Forums out there today that swear Zaino is the best thing ever..

    Not bashing those Forums, etc., but if the people swearing by the stuff are more casual users, etc., the vehicle is a garaged Baby, etc., well their results will always be different.

    Perhaps get on there with those people and ask them how many lights do they have in their Garage so that its like DayLight in there ?

    Most any car will look great in a garage with only 1 - 60watt bulb in the ceiling, right ?

    Re: Hydrosilex Recharge

    I’m on a couple of the car forums too and I laugh at the products and techniques that are espoused there. I used to try to help out but I could tell I was fighting a losing battle. Stick to the detailing forums for detailing advice.
