Never used it, heard good things about it though. I would imagine you don't want to use it on a really dirty vehicle.

Never have and never will. I imagine that's good if the vehicle is already clean, but I would not trust it to clean off the "road grime". If there's road grime, there's a lot more crap that is going to scratch the paint.

I would never use that. Clearcoat can be easily scratched. The only true method to prevent clearcoat hair line scratches is to use water, and even then sometimes it still scratches.

I had some a buddy gave me to try out. The only thing I have ever used it on was my snowmobiles. I'd never even think about it on any vehicle.

I used something like it, and it was more trouble than it was worth. Over spray hides in the cracks and turns white. Outside temp has to be above 50 but not direct sunlight, or it dries too fast. Any wind is annoying. I went back to washing it by hand.

i have some and i used it on an car a few years ago. If you run your hand down the car and it feels a bit rough, this stuff is great. I washed the car and then used this to smooth out the paint. it was like the car had a brand new paint job. and like mentioned before u cant use it in direct sun. I wouldnt use it as just a dry cleaner though, thats just asking to scratch your t.

My folks used to sell this stuff for years. They are more or less retired now...

It seemed to work just fine. Although I still go back to soap and water.

Dri Wash n Guard

WHAT??? What are you talking about?
I had to read this 4 times just to see if I could make sense of this..... Smooth out the paint? Brand new paint job?

You would be better off washing with a bar of LAVA soap... Just sayin.

it was a 10 year old car. the clear coat gets grainy feeling. This stuff was like a waxjob without the work. I used a special "sponge" thing groits sells which may have helped too.

lol I believe you're mistaking this with a clay bar kit.

Clay bar kits take grime out of the pore's of the paint after you've initially washed it.

It's the only way to get your paint looking like it just came off the show room floor.....also the only way to get off spray paint overspray.

There are a lot of decent waterless washes now. Optimum, Ultima, etc all make pretty good ones. I'd stay away from stuff that you can buy at Walmart but the boutique stuff is okay.
