A Very Good AIO
May 16, 2020
A very good AIO. Once I dialed in the right pad, it took care of the light to moderate swirls and surface scratches. It does very well for the time it saves.
ProsSaves time and energy.
Saves time and money

I first came across this product when I saw Mike Phillips using it in the Detail Fest tent at Barrett Jackson in Ft. Lauderdale. And let me tell I bought it and it works AMAZING you name the color of car and I can tell you it works great. Pair it with a one step pad or something a little more aggressive and it will get the job done.
ProsGets rid of scratches Polishes paint very well Saves time Slick finish

The Best AIO product out there.
Great product for quick details
March 24, 2020
I used this on my daily driver that see's a lot of trails so ends up with a lot of scratches. It corrected much better than I expected, but with my pad selection was not going to have the ability to remove the deep scratches. I did notice that it was hard to remove when doing a panel at a time. I decided to do complete the whole car before I tackled removal and was pleasantly surprised that after sitting for long periods it was easy to remove. Even one fender and the hood sitting in the sun was not a problem after sitting for 30 mins.
Good for polishing prior to Sealant.

Overall a good product. Corrected well prior to using a spray sealant. difficult to wipe off completely without a panel wipe type product.
Fantastic to work with!

I was amazed at how well this producte worked with multiple pad combinations. I used it with orange and white pads on my son's and wife's cars and the results were impressive. These are daily drivers and it was such a workhorse at cleaning up some of the imperfections. I will be keeping a bottle of this in the cabinet all of the time now.
ProsEasy to apply and remove

Going on by hand is easy. Takes many passes over one area to notice a difference. Waxing off can be trickey. I highly recommend Griot's PMF Dual Weave Wax Remover Towels.

This is a great one step I feel that it really performs great on dark colored paint.

BlackFire One Step is a great product when used correctly. If your car has mild paint defects it can be used to produce good results. However, if your car has significant swirling or scratches, you will be better off using BlackFire Polish or Compound and Polish, before putting down your last step product like BlackFire Paint Sealer.
ProsGreat product for cars needing very light correction
ConsBreaking down your detail to two or three steps will produce increased results

Offers good correcting ability for an AIO but dusted more than other AIO's I have used in the past (hence the 4 stars). Otherwise has more bite than most other AIO's. If you can deal with a little dusting, give it a try. Also has really long working time.
Pros- Good correcting abilities - Long working time - Easy remove - Slick finish
Cons- Dusts more than most AIO's I've used
Renewed tired finish on 2005 Expedition
September 6, 2018
Black, original, and tired finish on 2005 EXPEE. Thoroughly cleaned finish and clayed prior to using BF One Step Following instructions for machine application, put ample amount on orange light cutting Lake Country pad and set my dual action polisher on 4.5 out of 6 . Took my time, and made several passes for each section. Product stayed workable, even though I was outside in Summuh heat... Wiped firmly one time with microfiber to reveal a surprisingly (I am a rank novice) nice finish, with many of the imperfections gone. Pretty impressive to me. I am sure there are other products that perform similarly, but this one definitely delivered on what it advertised
Prosease of use lasts while making multiple machine passes for me, required firm wipe off, but one pass and revealed excellent results rejuvenated black paint
Conspricey if not on sale

Worth it !

This product is very good on removing light scratches , especially on dark colors.
August 25, 2018
A+, clearly the best wax I have ever used
August 24, 2018
Not as earth shatteringly different than what I usually use. I can see if maybe you did not have the time and equipment to do multiple passes of color correction , polish, wax, and sealers. My Z06 may be too shiny to see much difference in any product, lol
ProsVery little dust, easy application.
ConsNot a game changer for myself personally.
August 24, 2018
Very effective, very fast and very easy. I tried it on my red 05 S2000 and One Step took care of most of the defects. One Step even cleared up the hazing on my headlights. Next up is my black 17 Civic - that will be a real test. Make sure the change your pads often as the do get clogged a bit when using.
ProsEasy to use Low dusting Good results

I am a satisfied Blackfire customer and decided to try this product and possibly add it to the cabinet for certain jobs. I have a truck that needed a "fluff" after a long winter of plowing and general abusive conditions. The truck stays fairly clean all winter but works hard and lives outdoors. After a good all over power wash, foam wash, clay and buff to remove scratches I hit it with the One Step to remove swirls, add shine and some sealer. I top coated with a couple coats of Blackfire Synthetic spray wax just because this bugger lives a hard life outdoors. Time was limited here and that is why I decided to try this product. The product exceeded my expectations in many ways. The application of the product is fast and clean. The results are wonderful for a One Step product and rival many multi-step products. The amount of product needed was also a pleasant surprise. Working the product until it disappears makes for a complete polish/seal and easy cleanup.

Easy to use and makes the vehicle look great when done.
ProsEasy to use with no residue left over.
ConsNot using it sooner
Cuts better than other one step products.

I am a user of two other AIO's but reach for Blackfire when I want a little more cut. This is still my second choice next to HD Speed which still has not been replaced by a new #one.
Proseasy wipe off.
Does a good job

I applied product by hand with a foam pad. It did leave a nice shine.
ProsEasy to apply .Easy to buff off.

I used this on a one year old car. Paint is in great condition so not much cleaning needed. Went on really easy, but as I thought I was using as little as possible, I would rub and rub and it would not disapear, as it said it would in the directions. So I did it my way, applying it to a panel at a time, then removing. It came off really easy and left a nice slick finish. I topped it the next day with some Mother's synthetic wax and the car really shined. As little as was used (2014 Dodge Charger), this bottle, with 2-3 applictaions a year, will last longer than the car.
ProsEasy on, easy off. Left a great base for a top coat of wax.
ConsNone that I found.

Did a great job on my Black Ford truck with clearcoat.Easy on,easy off,left mirror like finish.Instructions said didn't need buffing but that wasn't the case.Nonetheless it worked great and left no white residue.Buffed out great,I'll stick with this product.
ProsWorked as promised,great finish...

A Fine AIO (All In One) Product
March 28, 2015
Seems to be a really balanced AIO product which requires very little cleanup after use. It did not splatter when used with the rotary polisher and did not dust at all when used by hand.
ProsVery little dusting when used with my Flex rotary polisher. No question that this product provides some decent swirl removal power when used with the rotary. It is somewhat less effective in that department when used by hand as was expected. I used this just one week ago and obtained the swirl removal results (on older single -stage paint) by switching to a somewhat more aggressive foam pad than I normally use with polishes. It was also used by hand on the roof of a 2013 Ford Escape with quite satisfactory results. There was an increase in clarity and gloss of that clearcoat ("Frosted Glass" color) finish. I also like the Poorboy's line of "Pro" polishes and am not quite ready to say that I now prefer the Blackfire product but am glad to have purchased and used it. One factor which might cause me to prefer this would be if it proves to have even medium durability.
ConsNone so far. Durability is as yet unknown. This product was not topped with any LSP wax or sealant.
Great Product. Easy On, Easy Off
October 3, 2014
The polish was very easy to put on and to take off. The directions said to rub it until it disappears. Maybe I put too much on, because it didn't disappear. I used a micro-towel to remove the remainder. Regardless, it gave my black paint a very nice, wet-look shine. Overall, I was impressed with this polish.

Really easy to use All-in-One. Will take out 90% of the issues and leave a nice finish. Takes a minute to get used to the product disappearing but once you do it is awesome to hardly have to buff. Would definitely recommend.

Superior and easy
August 18, 2014
As a fan of Meguiarā€™s wax, I found Blackfire, superior. I noticed, less strain in applying and removing stubborn tree tar and a pronounced shine even on a white car.
Pros But, the best experience was dealing with AutoGeek, professional, understand and responsive and many thanks to Andre.
August 17, 2014
The product is excellent. I do have to say its more on the mild side regarding cleaning power. And when it comes to cut, its very low on the scale. dont expect this to remove ANY defects on OEM paint. It has the potential to decrease haze but thats it. Other than that, this product is great. I reserve this product for use by hand on all the areas I dont machine polish like all the door jams and under the hood.
Merchant Response:Hi Mike, Thanks for the review. BLACKFIRE Total Polish & Seal is a lightly abrasive AIO, so it's not going to perform as well as a dedicated paint polish or compound for removing swirl marks and scratches. This is especially true on harder paint systems. For light defect removal (toweling marks, light swirl marks, etc), it works very well, especially on darker colors. If your goal is to remove defects, like swirl marks and scratches, BLACKFIRE makes a two-step system designed for this - SRC Compound and SRC Finishing Polish.
Proscleans and protects. The sealant leftover is very slick and glossy with decent durability.
ConsMild cleaning and practically zero cutting capacity. If you are cutting out defects be aware that its because of your pad selection rather than the product. I was very sure to confirm this before writing the review.

Does a good job of cleaning the paint and leaving behind a slick surface. Had to buff with microfiber after but left a really good shine. Topped with Sonus spray glaze on a silver Porsche Cayman and parked it in the sun and it really had a stunning finish even for a silver paint. For the right car/situation it will save time.
best bang for the buck out there
June 1, 2013
love this stuff best value out there right now bar none. used it with a gray pad with PC on a well maintained pearl white CLK 350 and topped it with collinite margue wax..the finish is unreal. amazing stuff it does everything they say it will.
December 23, 2012
I love All in One's, (AIO) and this is one of the best. I am and AVID Poorboys Polish w/ Sealant user, and it does a great job, and TPNS is not different. Did my fiances daily driver today, the amount of dirt and crud this pulled off with my DA was unreal. My white pads literally became black with dirt. Her silver paint is incredible now. Top this with BFWD or BF Crystal Seal for one heck of a shine!
August 5, 2012
It is just not possible for a product to leave an absolute perfect finish with a deep wet look shine. But it is with Total polish and seal. I had to double check the car this morning to see if I was dreaming!! Not one speck of dust when removing. You should not have to work this easy to get these kind of results! My truck looks like I worked on it for the entire weekend. Gonna order the Blackfire Midnight Sun wax and a new pair of sunglasses..I am gonna need them with the shine I am going to have!!
