I tried it after reading a tip years ago. It works for me! Great results. Of course - i use a soft dry rag to buff the wax off.. Applying the wax by hand, you will know immediately if there is any grit in the wax or on the paint. Also, you control exactly how much product gets applied to the car by feel instead of by looking. I've also found it to be the best method for keep wax out of emblems etc.the Sandman said:Hmm, I've applied leather conditioner with my bare hands (no rag or applicator) but never wax. Really good results?
Chances are if it's heavily advertised and/or also available at Kroger or Walgreen's, don't buy it. Not that it's bad stuff, it's just not that durable and it's probably over priced.the Sandman said:Hey Elvis
Nice post. Could you give us a rundown of the products you tried and eliminated from your "best" list?

For the past three years I've been on a quest for the best auto-finish products. Here's my process and my chosen products:
1) Meguiar's clay bar (twice a year)
2) 3M Swirl Remover (once a year, apply with orbital buffer)
3) 3M Imperial Hand Glaze (twice a year)
4) 3M Paste Wax--still experimenting here (as often as possible)
5) 3M Gloss Enhancer (detailing spray, as often as desired)
6) Kit car wash--I like the smell (always wash by hand if possible)
