Sonax Waxing Tips

Sonax Waxing Tips Spring is here and your car deserves the best attention possible. Washing your car is the first step, but waxing your vehicle puts the icing on the cake. A nice wax not only intensifies the color of your car, but offers an effective way to make the paint last longer.

Follow these simple tips to give your vehicle the ultimate wax finish:

Where To Wax

Avoid waxing in the sun is the most obvious tip. The intensity of the sun will harden the wax on your car very quickly. Indoor waxing is ideal. It can be done in a garage, which offers shade and the certainty that the temperature will be not too hot and not too cold.

Applying Wax

Apply about a half dollar size of wax to a clean, damp sponge. Avoid putting too much wax on the sponge. Liquid waxes such as the Sonax NanoTechnology Liquid Wax can be applied in a straight-line direction.

Waxing

Wax your car in sections. Don’t attempt to wax the entire car in one round. Try splitting your car up into 2 sections. Be sure to use a microfiber cloth to hand buff and to avoid scratches in the clear coat. This ensures a brilliant finish every time.

Buffing

The circular (orbital) motion is most effective when buffing. Simple!

Double Waxing

Double waxing is a special technique that the pros use to give vehicles that extra shine. Wax with a synthetic, buff it out, then follow it up with a layer of carnauba wax. This technique will give your car the “showroom” shine.

Streaking

If you get a streaky finish, fill a spray bottle with distilled water and add a half teaspoon of rubbing alcohol. Once you spray the surface, wipe clean. This will remove any hazing and streaking.
