    Re: Optimum Car Wax -Is It Me or the Wax?

    I got my new bottle of OCW today but when I was removing the inner seal I noticed bits of what has to be wax clinging to the neck of the bottle

    Violently shaking it didnít make it go back into suspension

    I emailed OPT and asked them to comment

    The comparison between the old stuff and the new pink stuff is on hold until I hear back

    Wonder if this is the cause of the streaking

    Not sure these bits could get through the sprayer but who knows

    Stand by

    Re: Optimum Car Wax -Is It Me or the Wax?

    I got a response from OPT this morning

    This was the second time in 15 years that I had to contact Optimum with an issue

    And itís the second time I received an almost immediate and personal response from Dr Ghodoussi himself

    Just one of the reasons I have used their products continuously

    Dr Ghodoussi informed me that the tiny bits of wax are normal and have always been there, we just never saw them with the white product in the blue bottle

    He says they liquify as they are rubbed into the surface

    I guess the old vs new test is back on when I wash my truck the next time

    What that tells me is that they have very little complaints and don't need staff to answer them and even the boss has time to answer the few that they get.

    Absolutely

    There will always be a product in a line thatís not up to spec with the rest of the line, or a person who has a bad experience, but for the most part their stuff is dialed in and pretty goof proof

    The other time I called them 15 years ago was after the first Hyper correcting liquid came out

    I canít remember if it was the polish or the compound that came out first but whichever it was my sprayer seized up within the first few sprays

    Dr Ghodoussi answered the phone, apologized, and sent 3 new improved sprayers along with a personal note the same day

    How do you argue with that?

    Re: Optimum Car Wax -Is It Me or the Wax?

    So on to the test

    I used this to strip 1/2 the hood (the Dawn)


    Pretty flat


    The contenders


    The hood was dry and I used microfiber applicators to control my areas and then a separate towel to buff each product

    TW HSWW


    Old OCW


    New OCW


    Part of what you are seeing is the slant of the hood which I didnít think about beforehand

    The new OCW is close to the snout and there is more slope so itís sheeting and running off

    I am going to leave this section of the hood alone except for maintenance washes and see if there is much difference in longevity, etc

    For you science types it was 78 degrees and 74% humidity

    I had no streaking with any of the products

    I think next wash I will strip 3 doors and try each as a drying aid with a spray on wipe off approach to check on streaking

    Stand by
