Car wash and wax

I use turtle wax ice wash and their liquid wax for my car and love it but it seems everyone on here loves the meguiars.. Is it that much better? I want the best look I can get for my car.

Just use carnauba wax, mothers, Meguiars or turtle wax

I like Meguiars gold class tho, their car shampoo smells good and spray wax is awesome

My grandparents run their own car washing place and boat washing and cleaning and they use meguiars on everything they wash and it looks like they clean they to be in car shows!

I use Armor All car wash it leaves a great shone. Also Armor All quick detailer if I want a quick wax appearance. For a full wax job I use turtle wax paste. For my rims I use only water and soap and black magic tire shine. Also every wash I use mother's back to black on my trimmings. All I could say is wow does this combo get me a lot of compliments.

I've used armour all wash n wax, worked right. Using turtle wax ice wash now. I like the smell and ease of rinse but it doesn't seem to remove as much bonded dirt, a good clay bar fixes that.

Carnuba wax will look the best, but last for only a few weeks. I use meguiars ultimate liquid wax (it's synthetic) because it goes on real easy and lasts for two to three months. It really depends what you want and how often your willing to wash and wax. I wash every week or two with quick details after each wash, full wax every three months. Clay in spring. I find this keeps the paint looking like new without spending all my free time washing!

For best protection and look: wash, clay, rinse, polish, rinse, seal/synthetic wax, carnuba wax, and a spray detail if you like. This process takes me six hours by hand but the car looks better then new! Layering carnuba over synthetic will give best look and protection.

Everyone will give you different favorite products and wash schedules so try a couple products and see what you like. Nothing is 'the best' just 'best for you'. Auto geek.com is a great detailing resource. Sorry for being long winded but I hope this helps!

Both great brands, don't get the wash and wax combo it's cheap and leaves smudges everywhere unless you really scrub hard. Wax should always come after anyways. I use meguiars gold wash, and turtle was ice.
