Those erasers are really good!! Can't vouch for using them to get wax off but it seems like a good idea.


I detailed cars, limos and tour vans for a while and used "Hawaiian shine" it is a great product, I attached the link to the company who sells it, P&S supplies. I do not work for the company, just used their product. They have some really strong degreasers too, you could use the bumpercoat product as well for a more specific application.

P&S's paint gloss is good too. Where do you get your p&s products from? I wish they sold more items in consumer sizes.

I work for a mom and pop detailing biz in Albany and they have an independent distributor that they get all the chemicals from.

I dont think this was mentioned but, using two buckets is how I wash my truck. One is just for rinsing the mitt and the other is for the soap. You can also get the screens that go in the bottom of the buckets to keep the dirt and sand at the bottom. If you use a foam cannon you only need one bucket.

I use two buckets with grit guards as well as a foam gun. I dry with a Master Blaster and a waffle weave microfiber towel.

The potential trouble with leaf blowers is they can sling airborne particles right into you paint and cause pitting damage. The Master Blaster uses heated and filtered high velocity air to dry your paint and blow water out of their hiding places.

I have thought about that but cannot bring myself to spend that much on that thing.
