    Funny how passionate folks are for their brands they like so I won’t mention mine. You will never get a straight answer because there is no perfect spray. Being a detail freak it is funny however folks showing off their shine and many actually don’t need a spray wax but a full detail with paint correction. :)

    Don't disagree to an extent. But my days of cleaning show cars are over. Zaino, meguiars, paste, liquid, clay I've used about everything. I was sceptical about the sprays to be honest. I think once you have a clean prepared surface, your choice of a good spray wax/sealer is a good idea. It's easy and fast enough to use regularly. My Ram 1500 needs a little attention first, then im going to top it off with ice seal and shine. I just need to find the time. That thing is big.

    I’ve used many including Ice, Rain-X, Shine Armor, and Wash Wax All. Still haven’t tried Seal n Shine, that’s next. I can tell you that Shine Armor had the best look (also most expensive), Ice is probably the best for beading, and Wash Wax All is probably the best all around (can also be used as a waterless). That being said nothing beats a clay bar and proper wax!

    Just picked up a bottle this morning, have used the Seal and Shine last year, basically as maintenance topper after washing. Hopefully this stuff work better.

    Yeah the seal and shine is much better.

    I use it over a full ceramic coating as a touch up and protective top coat and it's slicker and better at shedding dust than the full on ceramic coating as well.

    1. Initial rinse with power washer to get off any loose dirt
    2. Foam bath and wash
    3. Dry using leaf blower or compressed air
    4. Clay Bar
    5. IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol Blend with Windex and Distilled Water)- this takes off any oils or waxes and cleans everything

    THEN

    There are a few options after this. For a quick spray sealant that's excellent, I use either P&S Bead Maker or Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray. They are both easy to use, but Bead Maker is super simple and doesn't leave any streaks. It's great for the beginner detailer.

    If I have time, I would first use Jescar Power Lock Plus followed by Collinite 845 wax. It has a learning curve but works extremely well and the car looks like glass when you're done. The Power Lock Plus has to sit on the car for 30-60 minutes before removed for best results, but it is real easy to wipe off.

    Just finished the wife's Kia Telluride
