    If and how much to dilute DG Aquawax

    I've been reading how great AW is (assuming full strength) and also reading that if used too many times at full strength that some dulling can occur. So my question is..... Should I just dilute it with something like DG921 fast & clean shine and not use the AW at full strength? I know some say cut it 25% AW to 75% FCS, but it seems to me that 50/50 would work out better for making purchases of each product. I'm thinking with a 50/50 mix the dulling may not be a issue. Any thoughts on this?

    Use it straight.

    I used it straight for "real waxing" and 1:1 with water for drying aid/quick wax.

    50/50 with 921 works fine. If you've already applied AW in the last 2-3 weeks I would think 25% AW works as well. I haven't diluted with water but that likely works as well. You may also want to try 931/932 mixed as a QD (about 10:1, maybe 8:1). It works well over AW and is cheaper than 921. Note that it can be a little splotchy if you don't buff it out. Those areas wipe off easily.

    I would use it straight every month..If you use it straight do it on monthly basis..if you like to use it after each wash then dilute 50/50 with 921..

    50/50 works great! I used to use 25/75 but I agree it makes more sense to dilute 50/50. Flashes a little fast at 50/50 which is even better IMO

    I guess it all depends on how much of the cleaning power of the FCS you want to preserve.

    Agreed. I'm using this more and more. AW is easier to remove. Otherwise, very similar results. How do you find the durability of rinseless as QD vs. AW? I haven't checked this. I usually get weeks of water beading from AW.
