    I am prepping for winter and have gone a bit over board

    -poliseal
    -OCW
    -optiseal
    -Natty Blue
    -DWG
    -OCW
    -optiseal

    Now with winter coming I am prepared with some ONR ready to go. However touchless car washes come in handy. Does anyone know if the soaps used in these washed will strip off my hard work?

    If you use them a lot, they will shorted the life of your wax. Opti-Seal is so easy to use though, when you can ONR the car, just put on another coat to help protect the paint from the harsh detergents the touchless car washes use.

    Make sure you aren't applying sealants and waxes in the same session. Some of those products require 12-24 hours of cure time to be most effective, before applying another wax/sealant on top.

    I did know this but it is a good tip.


    Each layer was put on days/weeks after the other except for DWG which I applied today and topped with OCW.
