Q: Why shouldn’t I use glass cleaner on my car paint finish?

Q: How do I get rid of swirls?
A: Each time a paint finish is touched the risk of swirls increase. The best solution is providing a barrier of protection that creates a blanket between you and your paint finish. When wax is applied it is held in place by the pores of the paint finish leaving a microscopic layer of protection behind, the result is a smooth surface that prevents water adhesion. The best way to maintain this wax coat is with The Glosser.
Q: How can The Glosser clean and wax at the same time?
A: The Glosser is a patented triceraphilic microfiber, as the product is applied to the surface the microfiber collects dust and film while the liquid/wax left behind evaporates into a wax coat on the paint surface. Remember that most wax applied to a paint surface is filling the grooved surface of the paint and generates the smooth surface needed to repel water. By keeping the pores of the paint filled you increase the protection and the look of the paint finish.
Q: How can the Glosser offer wax protection?
A: The Glosser’s primary function is to protect the wax coat on the car. Once the paint finish has a base coat of wax and the pores are filled, the glosser acts as a rejuvenator to refresh gloss and replace wax that has worn away through friction or repeated car washings.
Q: Is Dash Gear washable?

Q: How do I get rid of water spots?
A: Water spots are generally created by water remaining on the surface of the paint finish or by hard water. The first step would be to remove water anytime you see it sitting on the paint finish, The Absorber and The Glosser are great tools for this. Another avenue is to keep the finish as clean and protected as possible, this way if water sits on the surface for an extended period of time it will work on the wax coat instead of the paint finish. Again, any variety of the Glosser is an excellent will help the water bead off your vehicle and avoid water spots.
