Waxing Your Car

If you remember the days of car wax in a tin, and literally becoming a project to wax your vehicle. You are also aware of the evolution in waxes, and being easier and less time consuming to apply.

Not much fun back in the day applying, and removing a coat of wax from any vehicle. 

Lets start on the premise that the paint is in good condition, and requires additional shine for the brighter, sunnier days of late spring and the summer. Obvious that if the paint on your vehicle has a layer of "fall out" on it it will require additional cleaning prior to waxing. 

Especially if you abide by the "Zen of Washing" you surely want bright paintwork that shines.

Stoner Visible Shine is in an unassuming container, you might pass it up in you quest for a quick to apply wax.

Don't pass it up, it does an awsome job, quick to apply and remove. You will be surprised as to how fast and effortless it is to apply, and remove.

The shine...impressive.





Cleaning The Glass

We probably all have our routines and personal preferences on how to best clean the glass of any vehicle.

In our case, Stoner Invisible Glass has been part of the process for countless years. It does a great job, no streaks, literally cleans on the first wipe.

We all know that the side glass of a sedan is easy to do, just open the doors, on a coupe its not much more challenging. The windshield is usually a 2 side affair, do the driver side, then the passenger side.

The back glass...usually gets skipped, its not that easy to do...simple skip the back glass.

Often while cleaning glass, the wishful thinking is that if your arm would be a little longer, it would be easier and simpler.

The Stoner Reach & Clean Tool immediately solves all the glass cleaning challenges, especially for the rear glass. Agreed it might look like some other "gizmo" on the shelf where all the cleaning supplies are located, you might look at it, and perhaps pass it over.

You should really get one. We often need a longer arm, or skinnier fingers to do all the tuff to access areas of any glass on a vehicle.

Its what the Reach & Clean Tool enables you to do quickly and efficiently.



The Black Plastic Trim and Mouldings.

There is always talk about black plastic trim on any vehicle, usually referring to the interior, and referencing a cost saving measure by the manufacturer.

No snow, its sort of milder, and as you are thinking of freshening up your vehicle for the warmer weather, and doing perhaps a spring cleaning. What perhaps? You need to do a spring cleaning.

Here is The Colonel, bright and early on a brisk Saturday morning, he decides to attack the black plastic of his car. On the premise of lets start the spring cleaning, even if its brisk outside.

There are a gazillion products to clean the various areas of a vehicle. This morning The Colonel has a container of Stoner Trim Shine Wipes. Yes the same Stoner that makes Invisible Glass which is a staple at Costco, and you should not be cleaning glass with anything else but Stoner.

First blush, looks like moist baby wipes, raising the skepticism meter "Does this stuff really work?" The Colonel tried one wipe a few days earlier and concluded that it worked, actually was impressed at how well it worked. These Trim Shine Wipes work surprisingly well.

How do you use it? a door and use the wipe on the weather stripping, and all sorts of other black plastic that you will see on your vehicle. Obvious do all the door trims (not the interior), then open the trunk or tailgate there is more black plastic and weather stripping there too.

When you think you are done, go on a hunt for more black plastic, mouldings, weather strips, fillers, you might be surprised as to how much you will find, and how pervasive it is on a vehicle.

You will be pleasantly surprised as to how well these Stoner Trim Wipes restore a subtle shine, while removing dirt and grime, for literally the new vehicle look.
