Some call them “spray waxes,” some call them “QDs” (quick details), but whatever you call them, don’t call them insignificant. These guys, the pinch hitter of the car care world, are great to have around. At the drop of a hat you can take your car from “blah” to “BAM!”
Applying a detail spray is probably the quickest, easiest visual improvement you could perform on your car. They elevate shine tremendously while making wiping away dirt, dust and smudges an effortless task. Detail sprays are meant to top off your wax or paint sealant, not stand in for them. You apply a detail spray as a way to extend the life of your protectant.
These are great for stretching the time between major details. I use mine a few times a week, just before I leave the house, to keep my car looking freshly detailed. People ask me all the time if I just finished waxing. There’s no need to tell them that I spent three minutes rather than three hours on the car!
Spray and wipe to detail under the hood, door jambs, trunk decks, bumpers, and glass! Detailing sprays literally can be used on the entire exterior for an instant gloss. Keep it in your glove compartment to use anytime you want to restore the just-waxed finished.
You don't have to sacrifice shine in the name of quick application. Check out the paint on this bright blue Honda Civic after being coated with Pinnacle Souveran Liquid Spray Wax - a carnauba-intensive spray wax that adds a sizzling, 3-dimensional shine. Thanks to Scott @ Incredibly Detailed in Maryland for applying the wax and submitting the photo!
