    Waxes I use need to be applied.

    i think he means that after you wax.....spray the car down with a light mist of water....to help cure the wax..........I have heard of this before.....do I do it....No

    Basically, I would wash/dry the car.. apply the wax... let it cure, then wash down again, then quick detailer...

    Most waxes dry on the surface of the paint, requiring you to buff the wax off to a shine. Washing and drying the car isn't going to remove the haze, its simply going to smear it around and make a mess. Unless there is some other kind of wax to are referring to that I'm not familiar with that works differently.

    Wax.
    Wipe off.
    Let cure. Getting it wet will reduce the length of time it lasts.

    I'm with him. the company wants you to waste the product by applying water and shiting-up the luster forcing you to think you need to do it again/more often whatever.

    new idea for waxing

    i use "final detail spray wax" & love this stuff. spray on a panel--wipe it in & wipe till dry using of course you microfibre cloth. There is no white residue & you can do your complet car in apprx 15 minutes, So easy to apply 7 remove & this is a plus nowadays!! Spend more time driving & less time waxing your car!!
