Fast Shine and Lube

I bought 5L of Fast Shine and Lube yesterday, tried it today and it seems to leave behind a cloudy finish when used both on wet and dry paintwork.

Can this product be used as a drying aid? or would i be better with a product like Express wax?

its a quick detailer and clay lube. id never use it as a drying aid. use either auto gloss rinse or aqua wax( express wax in 5lt) for drying aids

Not used it, but have the Aqua / express wax and am very pleased with it - I currently use the aqua wax as a 50/50 mix with BSD and gives excellent results

Sounds odd. As others have suggested, it is easy to over apply this product. Also remember to give it a good shake before use and decanting.

If you want a drying aid type product, Rapid Aqua Wax or Express Wax would be better suited to this.
