    Depending on humidity and temperature, between 5-30 mins, you need to buff it off just as it hazes over.

    Please let me know if you need anymore info or help.

    I was holding a bottle in my hand at Carquest, $8... passed at the moment as I didn't get home for another 12 hours and my car had to sit outside... didn't want it to freeze :D

    Depending on the temperature i wait about 10-20min after i buff it out with the black swissvax towel as i find it is easier then with a microfiber.

    I used the cleaner fluid pro via rotary in june and put 2 layers of cr on it. I waxed the car iwith cr in October again without cleaner fluid pro or normal cleaner fluid.

    The problem ist that in the lower sections there is no beading action present after 2 months. On the hood and the roof the beading after 2 months slows down.

    I use the cg pro detailer for drying the car.

    The car gets about 1-2tkm per month. Actually it has 3 layers of cr on.

    I'm going to have to look into this and give the 3m wash a try. I also have Crystal Rock on my A4. The gloss that it has added is amazing. I use Optimums Car Wash at the moment, and the car beads the same since i put the CR on Which was back in July. I would hate to have the wax stripped off after a few months.

    The Day I applied Crystal Rock, an amazing wax. smells great too!

    Where do you live?

    I would contact Swissvax directly, because I do about 2,000 miles per month and the van is still beading and it hasn't had a layer since July, although it could do with a clay.

    I also use Quick finish on a Crystal rock finish, I personally wouldn't use anything else.

    thats why its not beading...most quick detailers kill your beading

    I found that the CG Pro Detailer is beside of Field Glaze one of the best out there. I only use it as a drying aid.

    I live in Austria.

    I use the pro detailer on cars with divine, vintage or royale and have no problems.


    You do not use any drying aid?

    In winter i cannot rinse my car with an open hose i only have a mobi washer which leaves lot of water on the car. As it is very cold outside i need to dry the car assap

    Drying aid? No, no need if your gentle and use deep plush drying towels, but then I guess everyone has there own way.

    I also used Zaino grand finale sometimes, and that is one mental product!! But I use this after I have dried it with compressed air and a drying towel.

    Forgot about this post, but I tried it out this weekend and worked pretty well. Had a good amount of lubrication, good suds, cleaning ability was pretty good, and rinsed away clean. Hate the cap also Paul, so just took it off to pour out the soap and then put it back on.

    i think this is a soft soap so it wont strip the lsp, not like cwg,cwc

    FYI - this soap has a very thin consistency, almost like water. That doesn't make it any less effective, just so you know. Any foam gun or lance will easily flow this soap.

    Yeah, i tried to get some out from the lid and it split all over the bottle so i just took the cap off to pour it into the measuring cup.

    Nice find Paul, Thanks I been looking for a safe soap for a while, Dodo's green soap is nice
    but that thing pours out of the bottle like its water! too much money as I go through more than
    1/3 of a bottle on each wash!

    Thanks agpatel
