Orange Crush 30ml - carnauba soft wax - for warm coloured cars (inc red)
If you’ve got a yellow, orange or red car and like to sniff juicy round oranges, we have a soft carnauba car wax made just for you.
A sorbet-like soft wax made with pure natural orange oil, yellow beeswax and lashings and lashings of T1 carnauba.
When people talk of carnauba waxes giving paint a 'glow', this is probably what they meant...
Don't just expect a great finish, with minor swirls filled and paint so juicily glazed that rain bounces off it like glass beads... you can also expect a 2-4% dye tint on paintwork. It won't be that noticeable unless you 50/50 a white panel, but you'll know it's there and (to our minds at least) it does add warmth.
This 30ml pot, or mini-jar, contains enough wax to cover a classic Mini a full nine times, but this does depend on careful application... expect nearer 3 to 4 on an average sized car, or less if you trowel it on like a blind bricklayer.
Recoating interval? About every 2-3 months, but that's on a daily driver. On a garaged classic car used occasionally we'd probably re-wax once a year. And maybe get a finger mitt wax applicator while you are at it - they're small enough to fit into the mouth of these small jars.
Hard vs Soft Wax - which is the one for you? Whilst many of our waxes have a standard consistency, we make some of our waxes a little firmer or softer than normal. Softer waxes are easier to spread by palm or fingertips. Hard waxes often cure faster and go further, because they are less likely to be accidentally over-applied. Both contain similar amounts of carnauba and beeswax and performance will be similar. Harder waxes may cure better if you are new to waxing, so these may seem to offer more performance. And soft waxes may feel glossier due to their 'sorbet' like texture. It often comes down to personal preference - there's no right or wrong with wax texture, it just comes down to what you like.
