Wax and Sealant


"Waxing your car" is the most common term or phrase used in the detailing industry. But what does it mean? This episode discusses the differences between synthetic or "man-made" sealants and carnauba or "natural" wax. Each has its pros and cons...so how do we choose which one to use? I use a technique called "layering" that gives paint the strength of a sealant, and the deep shine of a carnauba wax. Use this trick after you've washed and clayed your car and the results will be astonishing!
