    2014 Soul in ALien II

    Wash/wax recommendation

    Hello Soul owners,
    I'm looking for recommendations on what to use to hand wash and wax/protect my 2014 Alien II. I would like to find a product that is easy to use an offers good protection and shine. I'm also concerned about wax permanently damaging the black trim (like I see at work all the time lol)
    What do you use?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    type "wax" in the search and you will get pages and pages on the subject.
    Here's a few to start:
    What's your favorite Wax/Polish for your Soul?

    Let's talk about wax, cleaning, claying, and detailing.

    Different types of Waxes? Wut?

    I've used AstroShield since the '90s. It is very, very hard to find but it is still out there if you are willing to spend some time looking for it. It is NOT a wax. It is a silicone based polish that goes on very, very easily and wipes to a mirror finish in minutes. No rubbing and rubbing. No wax residues and yellowing because it is silicone. After washing your car, you can AstroShield your entire vehicle in less than an hour, no matter its size. Early on they made claims it would increase your mileage because the car becomes so slippery. I never noticed such a mileage increase but the product was around forever, but recently shut down operations and it is very hard to find some of the remaining stock. Any major name car wash works on new cars as long as it doesn't have wax in it which will eventually yellow. I personally use Meguiare's. Good luck.

    I bought an Interior/Exterior detail package at a local detailer on LivingSocial a few months ago that I am going to use next month. It includes a clay bar treatment and wax. Hope they do a good job! The deal was for $99 and I had a code that brought it down to $89. It'll be my first wax job on the Soul.

    Thanks for all the replies! I ended up with Meguiars Ultimate Liquid wax. It went on easily and polished out nicely, and best of all NO white residue on black trim. If you get any on the trim it wipes off easily. We'll see how it holds up.
