Wax On, Wax Off: How To Wax Your Car By Hand

Remember ‘Wax on, wax off’ from “The Karate Kid” movie? Waxing and buffing your car can save you a bunch of money over time and prolong your paint job. Here are a few tips to make sure you wax your car properly.

  1. Apply car wax or paint sealant in the shade so the product doesn’t dry too quickly.
  2. Always apply car wax or paint sealant to a dry vehicle. Water drops can cause streaking.
  3. Apply the thinnest coat of wax you can! A thick coat makes the wax or sealant difficult to remove or cause streaks. Poly foam wax applicators are best to use for thin coats.
  4. Buff the haze away with a lint free or microfiber towel.
  5. Check the label to see how long to wait before adding another coat of wax. Usually, it’s 12-18 hours.
