It rang up as $10! thats a steal, i think ill grab another box because you cant beat that for $10.

can of wax, applicator pads and a RED microfiber! $10!
Buy the whole stores supply. That's like $30 cheaper than it is online!

One Grand Blitz wax. A high quality carnauba wax with easy application/removal, and lasts a long time (for a conventional wax--synthetics typically last longer, but I prefer the depth of color you get with carnauba).

Used Zymol for years, but got tired of the difficult application/removal process, and it doesn't last very long.

I'm a Detail Freak and Use Turtle Wax Ice

At one time or another I've used just about every commercially available car care product on the market and just thought I'd share my thoughts on Turtle Wax Ice products since there seems to be some animosity from some about this brand.
Now granted I dust my car at least once a day and sometimes more. I also detail it with Mothers California gold detail spray about every other day.
Because of this I rarely need to wash my car unless it rains or I get some gritty type of dust or dirt on it. I also use Ice spray wax on it about every three days.
I have found the Ice polish, Ice spray wax and Ice paste wax are excellent, easy to use high gloss products. Granted I don't need longevity in a product because I treat the car like a showroom car. But it's really nice to get a beautiful shine and be able to use it on EVERY surface of the car. Its great not to have to avoid any black trim or anything else. So maybe there are products that last longer but for someone like me, ease of use and end results are much more important than longevity. Sorry Turtle Wax haters ;-)
