Drivers ‘should avoid cheap car exterior care products’

Car WaxDrivers may be tempted to purchase the cheapest car wax, microfibre cloths and other car exterior care products, however, many of the low-priced offerings are not as good as their premium counterparts.

According to, motorists should stick to brands they know rather than making their decision based on price alone, as some can even damage the paint job instead of protecting it.

One product which should not be scrimped on is car wax, with the website stating that many low-cost options are cheaper because they are not very effective.

"Most of the average cheap waxes contain a very small portion of wax in them and use petroleum instead. Products that are like this do very little in preserving and waxing the paint, if anything they just waste your time and money," the blog added.

Patrick Sills, a motoring enthusiast writing on Helium, said recently that applying car wax four times a year is enough to protect the paint job from the elements.
