Cleaning Kits : Meguiar's NXT Wash & Wax Kit

The Meguiar’s NXT Wash & Wax Kit is a 6-piece collection of the most advanced synthetic formulas on the market today. You’ll have everything you need to keep your vehicle’s exterior looking clean and shiny. Buying the NXT Wash & Wax Kit lets you take advantage of big savings compared with the purchasing of each item separately. You’ll have the next-generation products you want for keeping your car looking its best in a convenient and affordable package. The kit also includes a professional microfiber towel and an ultra-soft foam applicator pad.

As others' have mentioned, this kit is a bargain compared to what it would cost to buy these items individually. Like some other reviews, there was a little bit of leakage in the package when it arrived, but it was no big deal and I don't know which bottle had the leak. I bought this for my black car, which shows dirt very quickly.

The Car Wash works as its supposed to, but to be honest, I'm not sure its all that different from that of other brands. Still, it gets my car clean quickly and its a mild soap on the hands. The Tech Wax 2.0 is just great. It comes with an applicator sponge and its really easy to apply and dries in minutes. Someone mentioned that it takes a lot of elbow grease to buff out by hand but I didn't find that to be the case at all. I probably waxed/buffed my whole car in 15-20 minutes or so. The results are fantastic! Best of all, a few days later I was caught in a big rainstorm and the water beaded just like in the pictures on Amazon - talk about protection!

Car Wash Equipment : Klasse All In One 10 oz.

Klasse All-In-One polishes away oxidation, minor swirls, old wax, and other surface blemishes, leaving a deep acrylic shine that will last 6 months or more! All-In-One is not a wax, silicone, or polymer, but is an acrylic formula. All-In-One bonds to the surface like wax but doesnt penetrate or change the paint in any way. It matches the depth and clarity of a high quality carnauba wax but lasts much longer. One or two applications per year will keep your car looking great!

I first discovered Klasse All-in-One in 1977 through a mailorder company (it was from Germany and not widely available in the USA at that time) and used it to restore badly oxidized paint on an old sports car. Not only did it make the paint shine like new again, it took much less effort to apply than other brands. You can apply Klasse to the entire car before wiping the excess off (as opposed to doing only one section at a time like some products), and it's easy to buff out. It's also a polish and removes road tar, etc. Although the purchase price may seem steep, the time savings more than compensates.

Car Polishes - Waxes : Turtle Wax T-468 Ice Liquid Polish, 16 ounces

Finally, a clear wax you can use in direct sunlight! Turtle Wax Ice Liquid Polish features an innovative new technology that blends silicone and organic polymers to provide extraordinary shine and durability to your car's finish. Water clear formula can also be applied to all exterior rubber, plastic and vinyl trim to restore color and shine without leaving white residue.

I've been a long steady purchaser of Meguiars products. This is the first "wax type" product I've found that rival's the Meguiars NXT results. While it doesn't last long,this product hides blemishes on a black vehicle very very well. Micro scratches, scratches, rock dents in the front bumper, metal, plastic, eveyrthing....

Very very easy to put on. You could probably apply to the whole car in 10-15 minutes max. Pretty easy to remove. Because it's great for plastic too, there is no time wasted trying to keep it off of your window rubber/trim or any other plastic on the vehicle. It is about the consistency of Rain X.

Goes on very easy, comes off decently, leaves astounding results. For those who detail frequently, dislike white powder in the cracks and want to use a product that won't build up, this is it. This is the first new wax type product I've been happy with in about nine years. Not sure if I'll quit using Meguiars NXT but definitely less frequently.
