Top 5 Meguiar’s Questions & Answers about Car Care
1. How do I remove water spots?
The obvious answer is to prevent getting water spots in the first place by keeping your vehicle waxed and maintained as well as washing and drying the vehicle in the shade and when the surface is cool. For those times where you do get that nasty, water spot surprise, we recommend the Ultimate Compound, after you’ve washed your car (of course!)
2. How long does your wax last?
There is no standard answer regarding this as there are many variables that affect wax durability. Generally speaking, however, we recommend waxing your car every 3-4 months or when your finger “squeaks” on a freshly washed surface.
3. What’s a Dual Action (or DA) polisher, and why should I use one? Aren’t they only for “Pros”?
While most professional detailers use a DA polisher, they are definitely not restricted to “Pro” use only. Overall, the DA polisher will produce better results, faster. Meguiar’s DA Polisher has been designed along with our pads for both do it yourself and professional use. This fantastic machine makes paint correction (with either SwirlX or Ultimate Compound) a breeze, and you can also apply wax in virtually no time. But the best thing about a Meguiar’s DA Polisher is that it is completely safe to use and will not damage or “burn through” your paint or leave swirl marks like a rotary can (if not used correctly). For those reasons, a rotary polisher should only be used by someone qualified and properly trained, whereas a DA Polisher can be used by everyone.
4. Are your products clear coat safe?
YES!! All Meguiar’s products have been formulated to work safely on clear coats. Meguiar’s has a long standing history and relationship with vehicle and paint manufacturers, ensuring our products are compatible with the latest technological advancements in vehicle surface coatings (or “paint”).
5. What’s your best wax?
That depends on your definition of “best”, because what’s best for you may be different from the next car guy. What’s the most important to you?
- Speed? Ultimate Quik Wax spray is the hot ticket for a fast coat of wax.
- Long-lasting water beading in a hi-tech synthetic? NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 is “best”
- Do you prefer a natural carnauba wax? You’ll love our Gold Class Carnauba Plus Wax with premium carnauba
- Cost / Value / Time-saving? Then it’s the tried & true, all in one action of our classic Cleaner/Wax
