    This isn't a car question, exactly, it's really for a latex dress. I need to find the highest gloss producing product that will make the black rubber shine but can't be made from petroleum distillates as it will melt the item. Which products have you used and recommend?

    Help me OT Detailers, you're my only hope!

    you'll need to find a water based dressing. this will usually be white and kinda thick. i want to say the F21 stuff in the green bottle is water based. I've seen it at wal-mart. You can check most of the OTC stuff, but that one really sticks out in my mind. If you can't find any, PM me and I'll see if my water-based has any PD in it (i don't think it does). If not, I can send you a little bit in a bottle.

    Thanks!

    Is it this stuff? A Turtle Wax product? I'll check it out on Saturday. It didn't occur to me that I couldn't use just any kind of vinyl/plastic/rubber product because anything with petroleum distillates will eat right through it. Kind of like a latex condom and Vaseline, I guess. It's probably strange to come to this forum to find a wax/polish for a rubber dress, but it looks like I came to the right place. If I can't find it, I will definitely pm you!
