    I am planning on using the Wet Wax next weekend with weather permitting in both full strength and in some diluted form to ascertain whether or not it works well enough as a drying aid without streaking. I am planning on purchasing the 3-in-1 Detailer in the near future but since I have the Wet Wax and my wife has taken my AG buying privileges from me for 30 days I am not able to make another order. I realize I am probably the only one here that gets on a buy streak and literally can't stop. I place one order, then find something else that I wish I had ordered, then the next thing I know I've placed 3 orders back to back and still find more to order.
    You are one of many here with streaky buying habits, no pun intended.

    As far as streaks, dry ASAP after spraying and see what happens in the morning sun. Most QDs are more watery and might be less streaky, or at least could wipe off the streaks easiest. Do you have any other QDs to use until your buying ban is over, in case Wet Wax streaks too much?

    I have some Meguires D155, and have been using McKees 37 diluted at different ratios as a paint prep, rinseless wash, clay lube, etc. and have had great results with it including 1:128 as a quick detailer as well, . I have also used Chemical Guys V7 in the past but am out of that. I do however like the N-914 better because it works and is cheaper but can't go wrong with the D155. My dad raised me on Meguires and it has always worked for me.

    I am going to play around with the TW in the meantime and see if I can't get to a dilution ratio that works for me. I would like to continue with a product that has the SIO2 working in my favor.

    These towels?





    That would be the white towels you see here,


    Must Have Microfiber! At least my opinion







    Links to each color in the order I show them in this picture




    Carbon Black Edgeless Microfiber Polishing Cloth

    Forrest Green Edgeless Polishing Cloth

    Sky Blue Edgeless Polishing Cloth

    Crimson Red Edgeless Polishing Cloth

    Edgeless Microfiber Polishing Cloth

    Storm Gray Edgeless Microfiber Polishing Cloth

    Arctic White Edgeless Microfiber Polishing Cloth


    BUT - I only used these white towels to show the dirt level of the car. In the real world, I like the blue towels I show in the same article or the orange verion of this blue towel.





    The Rag Company - 16x16 FTW Premium Twist Loop Towel - Light Blue

    I'm telling you this is a good compound removal towel but the store page reads like The Rag Company recommends it for

    Cleaning Windows, Glass, and Mirrors; Polishing Chrome and other Shiny Metals


    So use your own judgment. These towels are the correct size for towels which is 16" by 16"





    When you fold a 16" by 16" towel into quarters,




    It fits your hand perfectly and you now have 8 sides to wipe with AND plenty of cushion to spread out the pressure from you hand and fingers. This does NOT work for towels that are rectangular in shape. There are no rectangular shaped towels in my classes.






    Here you can see the loop style fibers - similar to a quality terrycloth bath towel but more gentle to car paint.
