So, you’ve got your car after a long consideration between the pros and cons of owning one in Singapore. That aside, it comes with a huge responsibility and that is to give your car proper care and maintenance so that you can use it for a long time. 

Caring for your car involves cleaning both the exterior and interior, sending it to the service centre for mechanical maintenance, giving it the detailing service it needs, etc. For busy car owners, a regular car wash may suffice but over time, you’ll need to send it for a polishing or waxing service to keep it looking fresh out of the showroom.

Additionally, keeping your precious investment (car) in tip-top condition will benefit you in various ways. This includes keeping your car performing at its best, increasing car and road safety, saves you money and time, lowers fuel cost as well as keeping your car resale value high. 

That said, people often confuse car polish and car wax for the same purposes, which is to remove the grime off the car’s surfaces and restore the shine to its original condition. While they’re not wrong, getting your car polished or waxed are two different things. 

Before we look at the comparison between car polish and wax, here are some of the benefits of giving your car professional polishing and waxing.

 

Restores your auto paint

Getting your car polished occasionally helps to remove contaminants, oxidation, and light to moderate scratches. At the same time, it restores your car’s paint job and prevents contaminants from sticking to the surface of your car.

 

Protects your car’s paint job

Giving your car regular waxing can help to protect your car’s paint job after your occasional polish. That’s because waxing adds a great protective layer of paint on top of your car’s original paint. It also gives your car a brilliant shine and makes washing much easier.

Car Polish vs Car Wax

Generally, comparing a car polish to a car wax is like comparing an apple to an orange. They are both products commonly used to protect and enhance your car’s exterior. If used regularly, your car will look as new as you first got it. That said, the two differ in terms of purpose.

 

Car Polish

Car polish is often used before you give your car wax. It involves applying mild abrasives to your car’s paint to remove grease, dirt, scrapes, and scratches which can’t be removed by a normal wash. Depending on the type of polish – cream, spray or liquid, it contains solvents that will remove any impurity to enhance the appearance of your paintwork. 

Also, car polish shouldn’t be confused with waxing as it doesn’t provide paint protection for your car. If you plan to polish your car on your own, apply a large amount of polish on a cloth and polish your car using a circular movement. Avoid over-polishing your car as you may take off some of the paint and expose your car’s undercoat.

 

Car Wax

Car waxing typically comes after you polish the car. It involves applying a type of paint sealant to add a layer of shine to your car as well as to protect your car’s paintwork. Not only that, but car wax can also protect your car from UV rays and prevent impurities from damaging your paintwork. 

In fact, using a car wax will increase your car’s paint life, thus increasing its resale value. If you plan to wax your car, avoid applying too much wax as that can damage the paint. Instead, apply a thin, even layer using a sponge or soft cloth on your car’s surface. 

Now that you’ve learnt about the difference between car polish and car wax, it’s best to give your car occasional polish and wax for it to stand out. However, one question remains: When should you use polish or wax? Continue reading to find out.

Car Polish and Car Wax – When to Use What?

The use of car polish or wax depends on what your car needs. If you have plenty of scratches or rust on your car’s exterior, then a polish is what you need. 

Meanwhile, if your car needs some shine or you want to minimise the appearance of water droplets, the wax is what you need to produce the shine and enhance your paint’s hydrophobic property.

Ultimately, you should check your car’s condition after every wash to see whether you need to wax or polish it. By quickly resolving the exterior damage of your car, only then can you have a car that looks new.
