Just wizardry!
I'm amazed.
Last Saturday we went visiting our daughter & family 50 km away.
The weather was miserable, dull & drizzly and raining from time to time. I let you imagine the dampness of the road with loads of water spills...
Back home in the afternoon Lady Carlotta was garaged as usual.
Generally when dry the body looks slightly stained with innumerable less or more dirty dried droplets of water, despite washing, polishing & possibly waxing beforehand.

I've had a peep on it today while putting aside some empty spare cardboard boxes.
I was utterly gobsmacked: the car was nearly immaculate as if it had just been washed and cleaned a few minutes before!
The reason should be that stuff used a fortnight ago for a simple washing & drying with recently purchased chamois leather sponge without any polish afterwards:

Unfortunately no significant picture could be taken in the garage, it's not enlighten enough but do trust me, it's amazing!
Never so far I'd used a ceramic car wash, just a good shampoo, and never after rain & mud splash i'd seen so clean a car just letting it drying without any kind of intervention.
That's wizardry!

I bought a bottle from Amazon and so far, am very impressed. The car has a lovely sheen and seems to dry off much quicker than before (less beading and more running).;):}

A good coat of road salt and all the "wizardry" seems to have disappeared! I've tried to just hose the salt off but to no avail! It still needed a proper wash. hey-ho!:shrug:

I bought a bottle as well from amazon, pleased with the results. We'll see how it goes.

I've never assumed that Turtle Wax could resist salt which is so corrosive a substance, which one could?
We are lucky not to get salt on the roads here: that's enough with dust and mud and as I'm retired I try as much as possible not to drive my lovely Rovers when the weather is bad. Only my wife is taking her daily 25 out at any condition. After my 75 and my 214 cabby it'll be her turn very soon.
