HELP!

Used turtle ice on my new paint job. It's the first waxing it has had in 1 1/2 months. It has a slight haze. Rubbing will not get it out. Will a detailer??

Is it real humid in Bama now? That had happened to me in high humidity. Make sure your terry towels don't have fabric softener in them too.

Brand new black paint on a white car. And it's moderately high humid. It looks like a haze. I don't want to ruin the paint on the first waxing

I've heard of this new Ice, but never used it. Sure seems like it would safe. Did you try the detailer spray?

Oh what fun it was to use. Just wet the applicator a little and wax like normal paste wax. It can be put on black plastic panels and wipes clean. I used the wax first (after washing of course) then applied it for a full 20 minutes because it's my cars new wax on the black and clear. Then I sprayed the detailer on it while wiping down by hand. Came back with a clean one after for te shine. I believe the Alabama heat got to it since it was just hitting noon when I was done. I'll post a picture of it as is. It shines brighter than McGuires to me.

No. I towel dried it and let it cool in the garage. Then applied the ice and legit set for 20. I used the detailer on it for the better shine. It's string a nice soaking in panama city beach right now and it's holding up fine for now

Yes. I guess the rain and the lower temperature brought the paint back to a shine. The rain just needs to go away so I can enjoy it

With turtle ice the best way to use it is to spray it right after you rinse it and towel dry with it on.

There are a couple things that will cause that. I have never used wax that requires water with application so that stuff might be a little diffferent, if it requires water with application I dont see how humidity could affect it.

1. Make sure there is no old dried wax on your applicator, that will cause haze guaranteed. Make sure its clean before you start, toss it in the washer machine with hot water.

2. If you plan to wax the car, make sure your car wash doesn't already have wax in it. After you wash and dry the car, the wax in the car wash can disagree with your liquid or paste wax, leaving a haze. Use cheap soap before waxing.

Brand spanking new applicator and micro fiber towel. The black never had wax on it since it was just painted less than a month ago. I use all the ice products and it leaves it wicked shiny I guess it was the paint still being kinda hot but the next morning it was mirror clear, too bad I wrecked it
