Poorboys has a great line of products. Their Natty's blue wax is one of the best for blacks.

Re: Keeping it clean!

I think that is the dash duster. It is similar to the regular one, but the regular one is long and rectangular, where that one is kinda triangular and short.

I've seen them on sale at "O'Reilly-Zone" on occasion.

Zaino is all I use. Ya it's expensive but a little really goes a long way. I've tried that black box from turtle. Will never use it again. Too messy and very hard to work with. Plus it didn't last long.

I wax my car with mothers gold caranuba wax.

Per a friends recommendation to not get the white coating on the plastics, tried the turtle ice wax. My car very disgustingly dirty the next day driving through city streets. Was covered in dust and grime. Never have this with mothers. Can go usually 2 weeks before needing to at least detail spray it. Just this kind of wax requires much more work.

Plus the turtle wax going on clear and not hazing at all made it insanely difficult to see what I had and hadnt waxed.

Overall wasn't impressed. Haven't really been with any synthetic waxes IMHO.

To get that white stuff off the plastic trim, use peanut butter
