• Always wash the car thoroughly to remove surface dirt that can scratch the paint while waxing.

Wax On, Wax Off
You may be surprised at just how far wax has come over the years. For instance, new Turtle Wax Ice looks more like baby oil than traditional car wax. It was designed to clean, shine and protect all exterior surfaces of a car, including plastic and rubber trim, without leaving residue.
"The paint on today's cars has come a long way, but that exterior finish still needs to be cared for on a regular basis," said Michael Schultz, head of the Turtle Wax Shine Center. "We developed the new Ice formula to provide better care for diverse exterior surfaces."
For those who prefer to stick with traditional waxing methods, the original Turtle Wax Super Hard Shell and Platinum Series are used around the world. The new Turtle Wax Ice polish doesn't leave behind any chalky white residue and can be used in direct sunlight.
