Dodo Juice Diamond White Carnauba Car Wax

Dodo Juice Diamond White Carnauba Car Wax

 

Dodo Juice Diamond White is a carnauba paste wax specifically formulated and blended to get a crystal clear wet look shine from white, silver and light coloured cars.

Sometimes mistakenly referred to as Dodo Juice White Diamond and not to be confused with the Poorboys glaze of that same name, Diamond White is a blend of white beeswax, micronised carnauba and natural oils to bring out the very best in what are difficult colours to get deep shine on.

Dodo Diamond White is classed as a “Hard” carnauba wax. This doesn’t mean that it is hard to use but instead refers to the fact that it produces a hard wax coat protection on your car, truck or bike.

The finish you get with Dodo Juice Diamond White is a crystal clear amazing gloss. Take a look at the video below and you will see just what I mean.

Best Alloy Wheel Cleaner – Bilbery vs P21s Powergel Test Review

Best Alloy Wheel Cleaner Test ReviewFor many years the German made P21s Powergel was widely regarded as one of the best alloy wheel cleaner products available.

Although not a gel formula Valet Pro Bilberry is a highly effective acid free alloy wheel cleaner which like the P21s is much safer to use on your alloys than acid based wheel cleaners.

But which one is the best alloy wheel cleaner? To find out we put both products in a head to head test on a set of alloys that had not been cleaned for over 3 months and which had not had any kind of wheel wax or sealant applied to them.
