Hmmm NXT Spraywax

Just washed+polished bella and had a go with this wax, applied very lightly with foam pad left it then tried taking it off with microfibre...what a nightmare! Went all kinda streaky and really had to use alot of pressure to remove.Even had to use detailer to get it off.
Am I doing something dumb or what!! Cheers

what kind of temp were you using it in?
I tend to avoid polish or wax when it is too cold and damp.

My technique might be rubbish though

It was about 8deg today and dry. Have clayed the car previously, its like it goes sort of smeary until you really pressure it off or end up breaking your wrist
Put the detailer on and it takes it off easy!

Good question, wax application is best avoided after due point in the "warmer" months (it doesn't really become an issue until September onwards) and winter can be a right pain any time of day. I have resorted to using Gtechniq C2 if I can't get a car indoors during the winter, waxing takes too much time and won't last as long anyway.

I have used the NXT spray wax as a top up wax and did find it hard going so probably best to stick to a proper paste wax and top up with AG Aqua wax when needed

On the subject of "top-up waxes" the Megs Ultimate Quick Wax is awesome.

VERY easy on and off.
