Agree BSD is grabby compared to some but is it really an issue?

It's really easy to use and even easier if used on a slightly wet panel.
The new spray bottle has helped enormously and I have also found it more grabby if too much product is applied.
You need only a really light spritz for great results. Still takes some beating as a QD.

A wet panel is out of the question for me; even if i pick up a water spot i'm then chasing smears around for an age.

I've tried the thinnist of applications, from a "mist" sprayer to a fine mist on the cloth and none on the bodywork, the results are still grabby/smeary. Ernest Rutherford popped round for tea and had a go at appling the finest of mists, even he had problems with smearing. I said before though, it depends on the paint. On my black Honda it is horrendous, on my silver Honda it doesn't appear anywhere near as bad, but probably because i can't see the smears.

Apologies if i have missed this, but has anyone yet tried mixing BSD with water, to see if it works better onto dry paint ?

Just a thought - it might be a stooopid one, but its just a thought.

Sorry to revive an old(ish) thread, but was this combo better than the other mixes you tried, and in what ways? I thought somebody earlier in the thread said Done & Dusted didn't mix well?

I believe it makes it easier to work with and still gives good results beading/protection wise.

although would of thought durability and protection would be poorer.

Same here cheeky. Didn't seem to if the guy on social media was to be believed. He mixed it with distilled water.

A slight variation - I tried mixing Sonax Turbo detailer (similar to BSD but I think it’s geared slightly more towards gloss than hydrophobicity), CarPro ech2o, and distilled water. Roughly 200ml:50ml:500ml.
The results were pretty impressive looks-wise but I haven’t seen water behaviour yet.

I’ve never had an issue with any grabbiness from the original and latest BSD formulas, just sprayed a few shots onto each wet panel and wiped them dry.

More recently I couldn’t leave alone so mixed in 40% Auto Allure Amaranth, perhaps a fraction easier to wipe off and perhaps a little extra gloss. Can’t say it made much difference to the water repellency of BSD, so not sure it was much of a step change from 100% BSD
