1. Mothers California Gold Synthetic Wax:
Very interesting product, I’m not a big fan of liquid waxes, this one shows great promise. It has a pleasant aroma, reminds me of the old Creamsicle pops, I enjoyed as a kid. Application is both old and new school, the new – you apply a small amount, the old – you let it dry to a haze. Removal was straight up easy. Gloss was deep, just not as deep as Souverän or Füzion, still a very nice shine. My personal opinion, you get a lot of bang for your buck in this bottle.
This example, while not a car, shows what this wax can do for you. Few people outside the hockey world realize the ice is treated with a chemical to harden it, this chemical has a profound “dulling effect” on everything it gets on.
2. Mothers Chrome Polish:
Well, I tested this on a bicycle as none of our cars has any chrome. This polish did a bang up job cleaning these tired old rims. . It has a pleasant aroma, sort of a “fresh scent.” Application was normal for a chrome polish; a little hard work brings out a nice shine. It is mildly abrasive so caution is the rule if you spill on any paint. If you’re looking for a quality chrome polish, you won’t go wrong here and can do a lot worse.
3. Mothers California Gold Water Spot Remover:
Nice product, this stuff really works! If you follow the instructions, little effort is required. It has a pleasant aroma, reminds me of a cherry cream soda. Another plus is that it doesn’t irritate your cuticles like vinegar does. If your ride is caught in the rain or you’re too slow with the drying towel (like me), this is a great product to add to your detailing kit.
4. Mothers Ultra Soft Polishing Cloth:
Nice little towel, not super plush, just perfect for removing wax/polish. I found this towel the perfect thickness for getting into those tiny cervices where body panels meet; I did use a large dulled wire tie as a tool for a more focused approach into these cervices. A few more of these are on my shopping list.
