Default Turtle Wax Ice Products

I have been detailing cars for 15 years, I've sweared by Meguires, and mothers, my neighbor has a 1988 Ford Bronco dull and faded paint, he spent 3 hours on it, I went over and it looked like a different truck. When he told me he used Turtle wax ice liquid clay, and then the wax I was shocked. I then used the liquid clay on my 05 Pacifica, the results were great. And 3 days after, my wife was driving and a basketball hoop fell on the whole passenger side of the car. The fiberglass shavings flew off the car with the wind, leaving not a mark... IT"* UNBELIEVABLE!!

I have used the liquid claybar before, and it does not compare to using the real thing.

Combined the liquid claybar and a magic eraser, however, and I got real good results.

Liquid clay is good, I personally like the ice clay, if car isnt rough, you just have to spray 1 panel and rub till you feel resistance, then ice polish, but the bwst wax I still think is Meguires NXT. Its a bit greasy and if you have a dark color car, after you wax it, give a mist of water and wipe dry.

Yea, I used liquid clay bar and had good results. It was not "like glass", but it looks good. I posted after I used it...Many people on here don't like it, but I do. It was worth a try...

A lot of people go by the thery, paste wax is better because its thicker, in some waxes its true, but for car fanatics that are like me and wax more than 2 times a year, the liquid is fine, the NXT by meguires is the best wax, ice is good for the clay and spray detailer. I was a meguires quick detail guy, but now, its ice all the way!! Its expensive too, about $4.00 more, but easier on and off, with better results.

i just tried it. at first i wasnt impressed. felt like i was putting grease on. and since i have a white car, its very hard to see where it is. I dont know if its because i still had "paint protectant" left on there from my last automatic car wash, but it was beading up when it dried. also, some of the hard water spots were still on there, unlike when i use gold class or something similar. but, it had a decent shine and on the way home(i washed/"waxed" it at a buddy'* house) i drove through a hwy construction area and got sprayed with concrete water( ). i was f'n screaming mad. but when i got home, i wiped the front off with a microfiber cloth, and it was clean again.

I went over the car again with Meguiar’* Scratch X And then applied The turtle wax Ice polish liquid, VERY Impressed !! On my black car what scratches were left after the scratch X, the ice hid very well, absolutley no white residue to fill in scratches.
Have 3 coat'* on now shines like glass. also no oiley film. The Ice detailing spray works great too for quick shine !!!! I also went out and got the Ice car wash, Works great too, very few water spot'*. I think before winter I'll buy the Ice paste ,They say it last longer than the liquid.
