Spray on wax

What does everyone like to use? Washed the car this morning and thought about applying my usual P21S paste, which is easy, however I thought a good spray wax would be much quicker in a short time window.

I really like and use Meguiar's D156. Great price and great results. Also, you could use it in direct sunlight. Another good one is Duragloss Aquawax.

I've had good results with the Griot's Spray on Wax. It goes on and off super easy and can be used while the car is still a little damp.

I use the same. Just spray it before towel drying the car. Very easy and smells good too.

Prima Hydro wax as you dry is an amazing product. I have been detailing for a long time and I have finally found my match. Looks even better the day after.

That's the one. I use the wax to protect the car and the Quik Wax in between washes to keep it smooth and glossy

I have not used the brown bottle. The black bottle give a more wet/glossy shine once used

Are you talking about a quick detailer or a liquid wax like Chemical Guys Butter Wax?

For a quick Detailer I use Adams; I think it's the best. 2nd fav is Chemical Guys Hybrid V07.

Was talking about a liquid wax. Wanted something quicker than doing my usual P21S routine.

Haven't used any Adam's products before. The Griot's Speed Shine has always been good for me as far as a quick detailer goes.

It's not wax, but try out Sonax PolyNetShield for a spray on sealant. Amazing beading and excellent protection properties.

Griots for me also. I use it simply to get the hard water marks off the car after a wash.

Real wax like twice a year.

I have been detailing for more than ten years. I also use D156, first I dry with Meguaiars Last Touch Spray Detailer and then top it off with D156. No need to overthink this.

Nothing is better than "Made In Germany" car care products Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer. Here's an AG review. I just wish we have access to their full product catalog for wax/sealant products.
