Best Polish and Wax For White and Light Coloured CarsAre you looking for the best car polish and/or wax product for your white, silver or light coloured paintwork? It is a question that we get asked at least once or twice a week and as the owner of a white coloured motor myself I know what a pain it can be to keep it looking gleaming all year round.

The problem, especially with white is how to get that deep wet look shine in the first place and then to have last as long as possible. As with many things the quality of the finished look is mainly in the preparation, but there are a number of products that come top of our list to give you that mirror like shine – even on white.

Although very popular in many of the large motor stores, the polishes and waxes with added colourants, including the whites often do not really cut it in terms of the shine they are able to deliver.

TOP 10 CAR WAX AND POLISH FOR DARK COLOURED CARS

One of the most common questions we get asked is what are the best car wax, polish and detailing products for dark or light, black, blue, red, white, green etc coloured cars. In particular black, blue and dark coloured cars seem to be some of the most popular requests for the best car wax or car polish for such colours.

It is possible to get detailing products with pigments in them for each type of colour, but these are not really necessary and are not particularly long-lasting, simply disguising the problem rather than correcting it.

That said when you get into the more serious detailing products there are a number of car waxes and car polishes that are designed for or work really well on black , blue and dark cars.

Many of the well established car polish and wax manufacturers have products designed for use on black cars, blue cars and other dark colours. These include Poorboys, Meguiars, Dodo Juice and Pinnacle Wax to name a few.
