Are 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. You have to remember that many of todays modern cars have a clearcoat layer on top of your coloured paint and it is this that you are polishing and waxing to bring through the brightness of the colour underneath. Thus adding a colour on-top can have the opposite effect.
Here is our top 8 list of the best car polish and wax products for your white, silver or light coloured car:
Poorboys White Diamond – a liquid glaze to be used pre-wax
Dodo Juice Diamond White – carnauba based hard paste wax
Dodo Juice Light Fantastic – carnauba based soft paste wax
Pinnacle Signature II – a great quality hybrid wax
Collinite 476s – paste wax that combines great shine & longevity
Dodo Juice Supernatural Hybrid – as it says on the tin – longer lasting than its Supernatural sibling
Dodo Juice Supernatural – a good quality carnauba based wax
Meguiars Ultimate Wax - a pure synthetic paste wax relatively new in the market but getting a good following
In many cases your actual choice of product will be determined by personal preference, whether you like paste or liquid, how often you get to detail your motor etc but hopefully the above will give you a good starting point.
