Turtle Wax "ICE" polish FTL. :(

So, I spend $17on a bottle of this crap, and I can't even see it to buff it off! I tried it under direct sunlight, in my garage, in the sun and at dusk, and it all sucks. You can't see the stuff, it's sticky, and I'm not even sure it does anything.

Do not buy this product.

I'll stick with my Meguiars.

Ice does suck. I used it once and I think it washed off in one rain shower. The shine was gone from it.

Did you use the claybar and wax? I bought both and washed and waxed my truck two weeks ago and she is still shiny.

Ice is ok for a quick wax job. It's stupid easy to use and I think it makes the next washing alot easier. The problem is like you guys, it's gone after the first wash. You would think for that price your paying, you would get alot better durability to go along with it. For now, I'll stick with NXT. When that runs out, I might give Dri Wash n Guard a whirl. -Mike-

I use NXT spray wax and it works like a charm. I've never clay bared before....I'll have to try it out sometime.

OK, well, I'm on the other side I guess. I've been using Ice for @ least 3-4 months & my only complaint is it doesn't dry very quickly. I like the fact you can do all the trim except windows & it leaves the plastic & rubber slightly shiney, & you can wax in full sun light. It lasts about a month or better with a wash once a week & it sits outside in the desert all day, everyday. I know when I need to rewax when I have to use 3 MF towels to dry instead of only 1 because most of the water runs off. I also like the fact you have no white residue & its very easy to apply. I've used NXT & its an ok wax but I myself prefer Ice. It reminds me a lot of Zaino which is one of the top paint sealants for car show enthusiasts on the net.

Yes it is. The main reason I don't use it is because to get a really deep shine you put on loads of coats or you top it with a carnuba which then means you strip it before you go back to Zaino.
