Has anyone used (on a car polished with Z.1/Z.2) detailing spray other than Zaino? Even if not, I'd like to hear how the Zaino detailing spray goes on compared to the stuff I've got.

I have "Slick Stuff" made by "The Wax Shop", and while it was the first time I've ever used a detailing spray, it was not as easy and simple as I expected. It does not contain silicone, and I THINK it is also wax free. However, it may not be, and that may be the problem. I know that Zaino is rumored not to do well with wax based products.

For one thing, the directions say that if it is difficult to take off, you need to wax. I just used Z.2 yesterday (2nd coat in about 2 months), and so I don't think I need to wax. However, it was about 50% as labor intensive as buffing off the Z.2 is. Normal?

It also says it won't streak. The streaking issue was... strange. From an oblique did I leave wax on the car angle, it was easy buff it to where I saw no streaks. But from a more direct pretend I am going to use my reflection in the paint to shave angle, it wasn't so easy. It took a LOT of buffing to get it streak free from both angles.

All this said, I think the shine IS better than just Zaino. It's also so smooth that I had a hard time not sliding the cover off the other side of the car as I was putting it on. But the application was more laborious than I expected. I needed to switch both applicator cloth and buffer cloth OFTEN (5 times/4 times respectively), and while I liked the results, I don't know for sure if I think this was worth the effort.

So what do some of the car care gurus think? How does this compare to the Zaino detailing spray?

Thanks!

Joe

I have only used the Zaino Z-6. ONE ounce is supposed to be enough for one car. Mist it on and wipe it off. And believe it or not it does actually repeal dust after you have it on. I thought they were full of it but believe me I can tell. Don't get me wrong it still gets dusty setting there but defiently not as much.

I have been using Griots Garage detailing spray "SpeedShine". I have been extremely impressed with it. I have used Meguires, Zainos and Slick Stuff and this works better than all of them.

My $.02.
