I hope everyone is having a blessed Ramadan. My question is should I use car wax every time I get the car washed? I use Turtle Carnauba and I'm pretty satisfied with it. My understanding is that the wax remains intact if we wash the car with plain water however if we use washer or shampu etc the wax gets washed off and needs to be applied again but this is my wild guess.
Thanks in advance for clarifying.
twice a month is ok with your waxuse a good shampoo like Meg wash & wax...it wont strip the wax off
twice a month??
damn - how much free time do you have?
haha! Interesting to see conflicting replies but it's good! "han mein han milana guftugu ki mout ha".
@Xulfiqar How often do "you" get your car waxed?
Alottime is the only thing abundant in PKbreak a glass full of water on road - 15 people will gather and watch and stare at it for 15 mins minimum
anyways Turtle is a mid range wax and i stick to twice a month statement
OK actually I just found a very useful tip, spray your car with water and if it beads up like in the image below, you can put the wax away.
once a month or two - Use a nice wax like collinite - its long life and doesnt make a mess. Sometimes waxings are not done for half a year - as I dont have time or its raining or something else is happening.
Don't wash your car with plain water unless you want to scratch the paint and install swirls on it. A pH neutral car shampoo will not strip the wax from the paint. You have to use a shampoo everytime you wash the car. Most car waxes are good for 2-3 months and some last longer.
any car in Pakistan will get scratched like a cat's post. Going insane on preserving the finish can lead to a money pit.
True in most cases but a weekly wash with a good shampoo using the right method followed by a wax every 2-3 months or so isn't really going insane, is it?
that sounds ok - but washing every week, including the whole clay, cut, glaze, wax every other week means that the car owner has no life whatsoever. Or does this as a profession.
Doing all the manual labor in the US may have made you forget that in Pakistan owners don't wash their cars themselves - it's not an activity befitting of their status. They make the poor peasants do all the work while they stand there and shout at them. Makes them feel 6 inches taller
may bad - I was a poor peasant in Pakistan too so car wash, house wash, house paint, washing dishes, pruning the garden etc was all DIY.
I'll try the yelling next time - It will be interesting to feel 7 ft tall.
The people living in that country and doing all the manual labour,have been controlling the world in technology education finance defence.And yet we beat up our chest that our car is washed by a domestic help and we feel pride in yelling. Hats off to you for your joke
mazedaar reality hai. These same "class" usually got offended in Pakistan when I told them that a honda civic is a piece of trash econocar - not a luxury car as they are assuming.
Wait, does xulfiqar sahab live abroad?
I can’t count on both hands , the amount of people that have started a loud argument with me over this exact statement. It’s like nobody wants to accept that it’s not the Dreamliner they think it is and that we as a nation deserve a better class of vehicle as our “top of the line” option available at a humane price.
I have seen people considering "Hilux" a Luxury vehicle maybe they were impressed by some "guards in dala and stuff" not knowing its just a luggage/dead weight/good carrier that can off road too
hilux as luxury vehicle? - hmm
Land Rover Defender also luxury? - its like a steel foundry vehicle.
