Turtle Wax Liquid ICE

ok so i have seen threads on this stuff raving about it..

well i got some and put it on my truck, followed direction thoroughly, let it dry to a haze, then buff... so i buffed, then the haze returned, buffed again, more haze, still buffing, still haze..

this stuff sux IMO, maybe i got a bad bottle... the haze wont buff off for me and i had to pressure wash and scrub the **** out of it to make it come off

Yeah, it sucks on the paint but works GREAT on the plastic..WE use it on all the trim on our Avalanche and it works great...it'll shine for about 5 too 6 months.

When did that happen? The wax of choice for the vette crowd was always Zaino as far as I can remember?


Zymol is good stuff too though.

I've used it twice on my mom's black grand prix gt, couple times on my Harley and I can officially say it's junk IMO. No matter how thin the application, it smears like crazy, then once I'm done, the finish feels greasy and I can see my finger smears in the paint. I'll give Turtle Wax Ice one thing, it's very easy to use but that's all. Not worth it but that's my just my $.02 -Mike-

Zaino is still concidered one of the best but many of us have switched to Rejex and Adam's polishes and waxes. Rejex lasts a very long time and does not require multi step application like Zaino. But like most places, there is a sometimes heated war when it comes to car car, especially with vette owners. I tried Zaino but did not see any improvement over Adams or Rejex

I used ICE on my car and it worked great..i dont see what the deal is.If you put to much ice on the pad it seems hard to get off but if you do it right it shouldnt.Ive used it for months now and its alright.Sure its not my fav. but it gets the job done.I dont use it on my truck cause it is primer .haha

I use it on my harley between real waxing and it works fine, helps the bugs from sticking from all the oil or whatever it is, but the real wax i use is gold class from meguiars. Here is the bike with ice.
