1. Spray Bottle (24 oz.) with a variable twist nozzle that goes from mist to stream. You can use a larger bottle but these directions are for a 24 oz. bottle. I got my bottle from OSH in the gardening section.

2. Add 1 teaspoon of Meguiar's Ultimate Wash and Wax

3. Add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of Meguiar's Gold Class Liquid Wax (Shake well)

4. Slowly add some water until the bottle is 1/4 full, you DON"T want suds (If you want to go an extra step you could use distilled water)

5. Swirl it around until the liquid wax breaks down (about a minute)

6. Slowly add water to the 24oz mark.

7. Close up the bottle and shake well before using (it should not sud)


* Prime the sprayer the first time and test the mist amount before trying to spray the car.

Tips for using any waterless wash/quick detailer.

1. Dust the car off first. If your car is more than a dusting and a few bird droppings away from clean, you just need to go ahead and wash it. Or have a lot of towels ready.

2. Mist on the solution and wipe down with one towel.

3. Use another towel or a clean and dry section of the same towel to dry/polish.

4. Admire your clean car

You can also add 1/8 spoon of wolfgang uber wrinseless wash to give it some color with a little extra spice.

Take 1/4 cup automotive liquid polish. Add 1/4 liquid detergent. Add 1/2 cup water. Combine in an empty spray container. Spay onto a cloth and wipe car clean!

Do not do this - it will damage your clearcoat! Liquid detergent is a stripping agent that will remove any protective wax layers you have on your car, and polish is an abrasive that should not be used regularly.


Stick to car shampoo and wax as suggested in an above post.
