What To Look For And What To Avoid When Choosing The Best Car Wax

Lambency Detailing

Your car is one of your most expensive assets, choosing the right car wax for it can make the difference between it looking old or new. Maintaining the outlook of your car is important, and one of the ways to do so is through car waxing.

Not only will doing so help to turn heads as you drive past sidewalks but will also help your car’s coat of paint look new and pristine for a longer period. Car waxing in Singapore is something that can be frequently overlooked due to the time and effort required. But in fact, it is something that is crucial to keeping your car clean and presentable.


Waxing is not only about giving your car an aesthetically pleasing look. It also protects the car’s paint job from elements such as the UV rays from the sun, rain and bird droppings. The latter, in particular, can heavily damage your car’s paint. These bird droppings can “eat” the chemicals found within the paint and separate it from the vehicle’s body.


Waxing can also be considered as a form of investment. Even though waxing, at times, can take a long time, it can save you money in the long run. Waxing protects your cars paint. This means that in occasions where you might have had to pay to repaint your car, you now won’t have to because you applied wax as a protective layer. Furthermore, a car’s paintwork condition is one of the factors which contributes to the resale price of a car. Regular waxing will ensure that when the time to resell your car comes, you will be getting the highest possible price for it.

Which is The Best Car?

So, those are the benefits of frequent car waxing. But how do you decide which wax is suitable for your car? Car waxes fall under two main categories, mainly Natural and Synthetic. Natural waxes tend to give your car’s paintwork a deep shine, while Synthetic waxes tend to provide a glossier look. A few of the factors which you should consider when getting car wax are form and texture, method of application and reason.

How to Wax Your Car?

Firstly, let’s look at the form and texture. Car waxes tend to come in a range of shapes and forms be it paste, liquid or spray. Its form will dictate the amount of effort required for you to apply and buff the wax. For instance, if you want to wax your car frequently, then you could try spray wax instead of paste wax.


Next up is the method of application. There are two methods of applying your car wax, either by hand or by machine. Applying car wax with machinery might be extremely convenient but, do keep in mind that you will have to pay more for the machine.


Now onto the final factor, reason. Are you someone who wants your car to be in pristine condition every day? Or are you someone who just wants to ensure that the coat of paint on your car is protected? Figuring out why you want to wax your car for will help you decide which wax to purchase. As an example, if your reason is the former (of the two stated above), then it would be better for you to search for a car wax that is easy and quick to apply rather than one that is lasting.

How to Choose a Suitable Car Wax?

In the end, a good rule of thumb to go by is to look for the wax that you need. No need to get a highly abrasive wax for your dark-coloured car and realizing that it gives you resultant scratches. Choosing a car wax for the purpose you want, and for what you have will allow you to choose the best wax for yourself.
