I used to use the Zaino system on my car and after multiple coats it had a wet mirror finish that reflected clouds. But not everyone has a lot of time to care for their car. So I decided to try this cleaner wax. It is very easy to apply, easy to remove, produces a nice shine, cleans the paint a bit, and is priced amazing low. If you don't have a lot of time to spend on your car, but you want it to look good, get this stuff. Get the car out of the heat of direct sunlight. Wash your car with dawn or some other dish soap (without the moisturizers for dry hands) really well and then dry it. The dawn will strip off the crap that is on your car. Then get a clay bar with some spray lubricant and clay the whole car. The clay bar removes tar, bird spray and other nastiness. Run it over those nasty areas until it picks up the nasties. The secret to having a car look good is removing ugly spots before applying wax. If you wax over sap or other stains in the paint, you are just locking them in and the wax is not going to cover that up. After you clay an area, wipe it down carefully. Make sure you don't have any water spots before you apply the wax. If so, you may need to re-clay those areas to see if it will come up. Now if you have lots of swirl marks and holograms in your paint, you are going to have to polish it to remove those. In that case, I wouldn't even use this cleaner wax. I would step up to a nice orbital, some good polishing compounds, a sealant and then a wax. We are talking $$$ and a good 10 hours of labor. So if you've got swirls, and you don't have the money and time to properly do your car, just stick with this cleaner wax and the steps I've provided and you will at least be protecting your car from further damage.Read more ›

I have used alot of paste waxes in the past but this one is the best for the following reasons. First is the price, alomost if not less than other major brands. 2nd is the quality of which I believe is the best on the market today. Third it produces a high quality gloss shine way above the other ones. The forth is with this paste wax lasts a long time just as advertised. Trust me you can't go wrong with this wax and I believe you will be fully satisfied.

The product may be good, however, when I received mine, it was HARD AS A ROCK.
I could barely wax the hood because I would has to use all my force to be able to get any wax at all to my applicator. I feel like they've sold me a product that was manufactured many years ago, the paste probably dried up by now. I really do love Mother's stuff, but I know I was ripped off on this purchase.

EDIT: After keep using it and getting the top layer off, It is actually much easier to use now. Like I said, the product is really good.

My dad's been using Meguiar's products to wax his cars for as long as I can remember. After reading some of the reviews for this Mothers wax, we decided to give it a try—and we're really happy we did. This stuff does an excellent job of bringing out a rich, deep shine in the paint, and both of our cars look better than when we'd been using the Meguiar's.

A word of warning, though: the label advises you to use the product "sparingly." My impression in using the product is that you get better results with a thicker coat of wax, but you should know that if you do that, it's going to take some elbow grease to get it all off. I personally think that's a small price to pay to have your car looking showroom quality.

I use this wax for waxing the wheels on my cars and use a different wax for the car's paint. The overall durability is pretty decent, and lasts at least a month. I can't say exactly how long, since I don't go more than a month before cleaning my car. The result is that there is visibly less brake dust accumulated on the wheels.

Applying this wax is easy. For buffing off, make sure you don't leave the wax on for more than a few minutes. Otherwise, it hardens and requires noticeably more effort to buff off.

The metal lid to the container requires a screw driver to pop open, as it's wedged closed pretty tightly.

There is a fairly strong, sickly sweet smell to the wax. I don't find it repulsive, but others have commented that they found it somewhat offensive. As such, you might want to make sure you're applying it in a well ventilated space!

Overall, it's tough to beat the effectiveness and usability of this paste wax for less than $10!

When I have time, I love to use this wax. It does take more time and effort than synthetic but its worth it. The shine and gloss just feels better (Might just be in my head).

Do one panel at a time, quickly before it dries out or hardens in sun.

Great protective wax
