    Yeah same thing I was thinking.

    Interesting product for sure. While I don't like doing a waterless or rinseless when the car is full of pollen, I would use it after a wash like a detail spray. I wonder how it affects the water behavior of the LSP?

    Yes, makes sense and certainly could be the case.

    Although ONR also leaves polymers behind that makes the next wash easier, and it works just fine on coated vehicles without negatively impacting the characteristics of the coating.

    More questions than answers currently with this product.

    Re: NEW McKess 37 pollen X

    Am I the only one who doesn't understand this product? I love many of the McKee's products and will continue to use them, but this just seems like they are going way too deep into niche products.

    I don't see how this product wouldn't be any different from WW's or RW's which leave behind a sealant or wax. Using them heavily on a pollen covered car would work just the same. If it's too thick, you have to rinse it off to safely clean the car. I also don't understand the "repel automotive surfaces of stubborn pollen" comment. If the pollen is in the air and a car is uncovered, pollen will land on it. The only way to really repel pollen is to cover the vehicle. Coatings or slick sealants will help the pollen stick less to the surface, but if it's in the air and the vehicle is outside, it will still collect pollen.

    On a humorous side note, you can tell where McKee's is located as the product copy is very Florida centric talking about tree pollen from "January to April" and grass pollen in the "summer". Around here, the plants don't even start waking up and pollenating until April. Depending on how cold and wet the spring is, it might be even later. At that point EVERYTHING explodes and pollenates at once; flowers, shrubs, trees, grass, everything. Grass does continue on much longer into spring, but seems to taper off in June as things start to dry out from the spring rains.

    Re: NEW McKess 37 pollen X

    I really like how mckees tackles particular problems. I just bought and used their floor mat cleaner and revitalizer. Just another bottle in my collection, but it worked really well. Heck i have a bottle of poorboys bird sh!t remover, so maybe this could be a winner? My only concern would be the other contaminants on the car besides pollen...

    Re: NEW McKess 37 pollen X

    I'm glad to see so much excitement over this product.

    To answer a couple common questions....

    1. Yes it is compatible with the entire McKee's 37 line, including our ceramic coatings.
    2. Would this be my first choice to remove pollen if I had time and access to a traditional wash? No, because nothing beats flooding the surface with water from a hose. Where this product excels is its ability to help repel pollen. Future cleaning will be much, much easier after using this product.

    Pollen-X shares a lot of its bones with a waterless wash formulation. What we discovered (by accident no less) is just how well this acrylic polymer that we developed resists pollen build up. How? I couldn't tell you, and neither can my chemist, but it's incredible how well this concoction of chemicals works to keep your vehicle clean and shiny. It's magic in a bottle.

    I’m going to have to try a bottle next spring. I hate pollen.

    Nick, does it repel anything other than pollen, like dust?
