HOW-TO WAX YOUR CAR
REFINE YOUR SHINE

Griot's Garage offers several advanced paint protection formulas which address the specific needs of your paint. Each product focuses on a particular paint condition and treats varying degrees of durability, clarity, longevity, and defect removal capability.

NATURAL WAX FORMULA - CARNAUBA

Carnauba-based formulas offer good durability and exceptional clarity and gloss. For those who enjoy waxing and are willing to do it more often to achieve a truly show-stopping appearance, Carnauba-based waxes are a great solution.

SYNTHETIC FORMULAS - SEALANTS

Synthetic formulas typically offer the best and longest lasting protection and are ideal for daily driven vehicles. Synthetic formulas are ideal for those who prefer to wax less often (1 or 2 times per year).

CLEANER WAX OR "ALL-IN-ONE" FORMULAS

These products gently remove light defects, restore gloss and color, and add a durable layer of protection. They offer time-saving convenience during application but they do, however, need to be applied more often, typically 3 or 4 times per year for the best results.

RICHARD'S TOP WAXING TIPS
richard griot
1

Always evaluate your surface to ensure it's free of above surface contaminants prior to waxing. If your paint isn't smooth as glass, utilize Paint Detailing Clay and Speed Shine® prior to waxing.

2

Whether applying wax by hand or machine, use the appropriate foam or microfiber pad to apply thin even coats to a cool surface. Remember, two to three thin coats are better than one heavy coats.

3

Always remove wax and sealant residue directly with a quality micro fiber cloth like our microfiber Wax Removal Cloth or PFM Microfiber Terry Weave Towel.
