    I wash and "cleaner/wax" my car every Sunday, and it keeps a decent shine and allows rain and water to bead very nicely.

    I have a black car with swirl marks, which are going away slowly.

    My question is: Is there a cleaner wax (burgundy bottle)out there that will get rid of swirl marks at the same time better than the one I'm currently using? I just don't have 4-6 hours every 6 months to do a full exterior cleaning/polish/waxing and I'm really just experimenting with the effectiveness of a weekly cleaner/waxing...

    I use cleaner/wax on doorjambs and stuff like that, that I don't want to use Carnuba Moose on.

    If you have swirl marks that you're trying to get rid of, there are much more effective products than Burgundy bottle Cleaner/Wax.

    You will need to use something like Meguiars Swirl Remover #9...at least to remove swirls. The abrasives in Meguiars Cleaner Wax just are not aggressive enough.

    Product list should have enough to get you going in the right direction.

    i use it on the 50 dollar wax deal i offer...it does a pretty decent job on the cars that have never been waxed, etc.

    Try Vanilla Moose as your one step option. This is Vanilla Moose and Quikshine (Clearkote's quick detailer spray) on a 1996 Ferrari 348 Spider...and I had applied the Vanilla Moose 6 weeks ago! Just washed it and QDed it with Quikshine today.

    Wouldn't you give them a wax, too? Since the Vanilla Moose would strip the wax that was already on the paint? Or is that why you QD them?

    Vanilla Moose is a wax, look at the full name on the label. It contains the same wax as regular Moose Wax, but it has light abrasives instead of chemical cleaners.
