Basic Protection With A Tropical Scent!
May 30, 2022
The first time I tried this wax I was blown away with how easy it was to use, the results it produced, and how nice it smelled. I use OCW as my basic level of protection. A couple things I noticed about OCW: 1. I get better results after thoroughly working the wax into the paint before wiping off. Usually there is nothing to wipe off with this approach. 2. The less used, the better user experience and performance you'll have. Recently I mistakenly used this product as temporary protection for a co-worker's car that I had to continue my paint correction/coating process elsewhere, at a later date. A week went by and I back to the car. Didn't look like the wax was even working when I hit it with the power washer. Then I did the ONR wash and saw (and felt through the slickness as I dried) the OCW was in fact still there. Because my perception of this product was that it was somewhat week, that I just started polishing. Big mistake. It gummed up the pad, and made the residue very difficult to wipe off. I ended doing a Optimum Power Clean wipe down, ONR washed, dried, and got back to work. I should have opted for a wash with ONRWW, or a quick application of Optimum Instant Detailer instead. Next time I'll know that Car Wax is going to provide too much protection for that application. If you're looking to add some very fast legit protection, Optimum Car Wax is a great way to go. Easy enough to use in a regular basis. I actually find it fun to use, as in I enjoy the application process. The delicious pina colada scent, the slick feel after application, and the beautiful glossy glow of the paint all make for a nice time. I actually find all of the Optimum paint care products fun to use. Gloss Coat, Opti-Seal, Car Wax, Instant Detailer and Gloss Enhancer, Opti-Clean, and ONR (both formulations) are an absolute joy to use and work with. I personally like combining Car Wax with Opti-Seal by either first applying Opti-Seal, or topping Car Wax with Opti-Seal. The solvents in Opti-Seal can migrate through the wax layer to the paint and re-deposit the wax on top of itself. Either way, they work great together.
ProsAmazing pina colada scent. Ease of use. Reasonably durable for a hybrid sealant wax. Slickness and gloss.

Easy to use and excellent finish
December 30, 2020
I have been using Optimum Car Wax for 6 years now and have been extremely happy with the product. It goes on easy and provides a beautiful shine and feels slick. A typical application takes about 25 minutes. Will not discolor plastics or rubber. The longevity depends on the season. If it's summer in Florida I would say it needs to be reapplied once a month for good protection. It does an excellent job at UV protection.
ProsEase of use, smell, clarity, slickness, depth of gloss
ConsCost, can streak if you use too much

Quick Layer of Protection
December 24, 2020
I use this every weekend for a quick layer of protection after my weekly wash. Works as it should, but I doubt it lasts any longer than a week.

My new go to spray wax. Great shine and durable. Even better cause it has UV protection!

So smooth
September 26, 2020
The spray bottle wasn't enough, had to get the gallon. Before trying this, I only used ONR to wash and Optiseal to dry and protect; quick and easy which is a must for working outside in the Miami heat. Then I tried this wax just to try, and the smooth as glass finish it leaves is addicting. And now that I tried the optimum method of clay as you wax, there's no going back.
ProsSmells great Excellent value Efficient application, especially when used as clay lube UV protection Leaves paint really smooth Provides a decent depth/glow that Opti seal doesn't provide
ConsDon't expect 6 months of protection for daily driven, left outside in tropical heat, cars

Exceeded Expectations
November 8, 2019
After using many spray waxes this has exceeded my initial expectations for ease of use and appearance. Long-term test are still pending, but look promising.

Performance and price are terrific. A little goes a long way. Those that have a problem with this product are simply just using too much per panel. I use it as a drying aid with O.N.R. and get phenomenal results.
ProsSmells like pina colada. Incredible shine and depth
ConsHaven't found any yet

Superb Performance
September 21, 2019
I had a gallon of the old formula which lasted me for quite some time. I finally purchased a gallon of the new formula and it is outstandingly easy to use and produces a shine like nothing else, really. I especially like the fact that it has UV inhibitors. No matter what else I use, I always top it with Optimum for that aspect of the product as well as the shine. I little goes a long way It is just that easy to use. It virtually disappears with minimal effort.

Easiest wax to use
June 9, 2019
This is my go to wax. Though not the most durable wax, it is by far the easiest to use. After washing but before drying, I spray a few squirts on the car then dry with towels. Sometimes I'll have a durable LSP under this product, sometimes not. It's also paint shop safe (OK to use on freshly painted surfaces whereas most waxes and sealants are not).

Great performance

Easy and quick to use. Great for people who either donâ‚"t want, or have the time to apply products that take time to use. This over a sealant gives me months of longevity when applied to rvâ‚"s.
ProsEase of use, and surprising durability form a â‚“spray wax.â‚
ConsDoes seem to collect a little more dust then past products.

Crazy shine/gloss! SUPER EASY to use! Doesn't stain plastic parts. Lasts up to 5 months!??! Even if it didn't, It's so easy to re-apply, you'll never be unprotected! I bought a gallon and shared with friends and family. A little goes a LONG way.. I may not need to buy wax again for 5 years!
ProsSUPER EASY - Actually spray and wipe off!
By Scott
Love this spray wax!
March 30, 2016
Been using this for at least 4-5 years now, and I love it. Unlike the cheap auto store spray waxes, this product actually puts a decent layer of wax on your paint. In fact, you have to be careful - if you overspray onto a window, it leaves wax spots that can only be removed with rubbing alcohol! Yes, it sticks that well! I use it as a sacrificial topper after every wash over Opti-Seal (which I do once every year or two), but it doesn't really seem to lose any coverage between washes (every 4-6 weeks).
ProsVery protective and easy to apply No more expensive than the cheap spray waxes when you buy by the gallon
By Chuck
Awesome shine

I had my boss say how great the plane looks which he has never said in 10 years ... Then the maintenance shop aqid a comment on it. Great product. Easy on and off a clean surface. Lot easier to apply than a seal t on 60feet of wing....

i have used ALL kinds of wax, i have never used a wax that is this fast (i wax a full size crew cab truck in 15 min) and last as long as this wax does. i let my friends try it and now we take turns buying it by the gallon. great stuff, if you try it you will love it just the same

Nothing but good things to say!

I use Optimum's Spray Wax as a quick add-on to already properly washed and clean cars with nice gloss beforehand - so the spray wax goes on and comes off nicely. It can even be used 'while drying' to completely remove any chance of water spots, and it really does add a great gloss. I have not tried Duragloss's AquaWax, BUT, I don't have a reason to, I'm happy with Optimum's product and plus Duragloss AquaWax doesn't contain any Carnauba, only synthetic polymers... Optimum contains BOTH!

The most durable spray wax I have used. A real treat to use and something everyone should have in their garage.
By KC D.
Good product.
October 28, 2011
Great product with good shine and sickness. 5 months? What a joke. Not even close at all. you would be lucky to get 5 weeks out of it. In fact, the durability more like 5 days. Well, maybe a week or two if the car is properly cleaned. The polymer is the choice over carnauba for auto detailing in Kansas City. Let's just say we see some harsh weather year around. That being said, it is a great product. Looks great on all colors.

Great Spray Wax!
January 6, 2011
For a spray wax, it's the best out there in my opinion. Last a long time and very easy to apply with no residue on rubber or plastics. You can dry and wax your vehicle in 1 step and works well after using Optimum No Rinse.
