Car show participants all have the same dilemma: when arriving at a show, what do you do when your car has dust, dirt and fingerprints all over your precious paint? There are waterless car washes available – I’ve tried these and was not impressed, car dusters work fine but they won’t remove fingerprints or dirt. The product I recommend is quick detailer spray.

One example is Ultimate Quick Detailer, new from Meguiar’s. According to Meguiar’s it “repels water, withstands multiple car washes, and adds additional protection to your finish”. It uses the same formulation as their NXT wax – Hydrophobic Polymer Technology. It has a gentle, high lubricity formula, safe for all paint types including the latest clear coats and can be used daily to remove loose contaminants, dust and grime. It also enhances wax protection.

The quick detailer really is the missing link between car washes, simply mist on and wipe off with a microfibre towel. Mist one panel at a time and buff dry, I did my whole car in less than fifteen minutes and the results were amazing. It left a deep gloss shine with no streaks and was easy to use. It even removed bug splatters without scratching the paint. I have been using it on my car for a few weeks, and the finish seems to get deeper and darker every time I use it.

The old quick detailer worked well, but this one exceeds it in every way. Remember this is not a replacement for waxing your car, but is great for those quick touch ups before a show or anyone who really cares about the appearance of their car.

Meguiar’s Ultimate Quick Detailer retails for $9.99 and can be purchased at most auto parts stores or buy it online at
