Noticed a web site called road users direct, selling natty blue for £11, free delivery for £20 orders.

I don't like the term "budget wax" because of the negative connotations rather like "budget airline" or "budget holiday". However given you have waxes costing £100, £200 or the zainos/swissvax costing ££££ then a wax that gives you bang for buck is what i would relabel "budget wax".

No point in getting a bargain basement wax that is hard to apply and buff off (which takes some of the enjoyment out of the process).



I would vote for DSW as giving amazing bang for buck (ease of application, durability, shine etc). You get a microfibre, applicator pad (and if you get it from PB free delivery). All for the bank busting sum of £14.95.

'Budget' by definition 'cheap' or 'inexpensive'. Nothing to do with the quality of product.

totally agree, but there are waxes where it doesn't matter if you over apply. The op asked for the easiest. DW is a good lsp but its not the easiest to use.

Absolutely, that's why I also agreed with Brian's suggestion of FK pink wax. Although if ease of use is the absolute top priority, then a sealant would probably be a better recommendation.

No he didn't, he said ease of use was key, not that he was after the easiest. There is difference between the two statements

DSW is perfectly easy to use as long as it's applied thinly (which again isn't hard), and not left for ages before buffing off.
Doing a couple of panels a time with a damp applicator will be fine

sorry but ease of use means easy to apply and not the need to following all the points you have listed. Ease of use means the wax is forgiving and doesnt matter to much how you apply it, it will be ok.
The way you are putting it Simoni original can be classed as easy if you follow a strict way of applying it

Applying a wax to two panels at a time and removing it before it sets solid is hardly quantum physics though, everything comes with some instructions. DSW is a great performing wax for any money in my experience and I've never had any issues with removal either.

If you want something idiot proof though get a sample pot of onyx for £20 and apply it and remove it however you want.
