Everyone favorite Quick Detailer!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to see what everyone's favorite quick detailer is. The poll is mainly for cleaning quick detailers but you can also post your prefered type of gloss/protection enhancer.

Enjoy!

Optimum Instant Detailer, not only is it the best I've used, it's actually the best value since it comes in a concentrate that you dilute. As for protection, it's hard to beat the results of Optimum Car Wax, for the ease of application it works very well and adds a nice slick finish, beading is great too.

spray wax is not the same as QD

luber is also not really a qd. it's a... clay lubricant lol

top inspection is to remove polishing oils too

i use FK425 for my wipedowns, and ONR diluted to claying strength for claying

Good thread! I was wondering what other people used for QD too.

I like the PB Spray and Gloss right now. Surprisingly, Turtle Wax Ice is pretty good too - I use it on my wheels between applications of PB Wheel Sealant.

The worst I've tried was the Mother's stuff. Maybe I got a bad batch, but there was just something wrong with it. It was hazy on the paint and just didn't feel right.

Wow, great responses. I use PB Spray & Wipe. Good for cleaning up bird crap and bugs and some water spots. Looking for something different. Maybe I'll give Meguiars a shot. Would like to buy in bulk though.

I mostly use Z6 but also have used ONR for QD. Either works well enough that I haven't had the need to try anything new.
