Choosing the Right Car Wax

Selecting the right car wax for your vehicle truly is a matter of personal preference. Your two main options are synthetic liquid waxes versus natural pastes. The one that you choose greatly depends on how much time you are willing to devote to the care of your car.

Natural paste waxes are probably what you were used to your father using on the family car when you were a kid. They are thick and need to be applied by hand. Meanwhile, synthetic liquid pastes can either be applied by hand or by a high-speed buffer or other machine. This means that if you are in a hurry, you can polish your car much faster using a synthetic liquid wax. The results are the same no matter which type of wax you use, and synthetics have the additional advantage of also having a polisher – eliminating that potentially lengthy step.

One advantage of a paste wax is that while it costs slightly more to purchase, one tin will generally last longer than a tube of liquid paste. There is also something to be said for getting the enjoyment of waxing your car by hand and knowing that you are carefully waxing every nook and cranny. However, for most people, a liquid wax will let them keep their car looking great while saving them time.
