Their instructions state, "add the formula to a bucket of clean water and pour over the surface of a wet car".........seems an odd method!
Do you find it works just as well with a spray bottle??

I can recommend Meguiar’s Synthetic X-Press Spray Wax - gallon is around 30 quid
Drying aid, spray wax - can even use it on interiors and glass. No white marks on anything.

From the usual places (Elite, CYC, etc) or even Megs direct.

I've never tried the "pour it on from a bucket" method - seems rather wasteful to be honest as most of the product will end up on the floor.

It works fine by sprayer - on an unprotected panel covered in water the water beads up and runs off. Note that the beading is not tight like a fresh coat of wax, it's more like a rather tired coat of sealant but it does do the trick of getting the panel much drier than it otherwise would be. I daresay it might be more effective at higher concentrations but I have been using it down in the 2-3% range.

I really like Autoglym Express Wax (trade version of Aquawax) £30 for 5 litres, but just needs half a dozen squirts over whole car. spray onto wet car and wipe off.

Used as a drying aid on all surfaces, leaves a classy just-waxed hi-gloss look and is great for tickling up unprotected and unloved cars.

Thank you, also worth considering Autogloss Rinse. Dilutes 1:100.

Spray on to a clean wet car, rinse off, mad beading, dry what little water is left on the car.

Bumping this up-
any suggestions for a spray I can spray onto a wet car before wiping with drying towels

currently used sonax BSD and works really well but is there anything more cost effective-

not a fan of products you spray on/rinse off

I use autoglym Autogloss Rinse. Really easy to apply. Just spray and rinse. Good beading and gloss and very cost effective.

CarPlan Trade Hi-Wax Rinse 5L £12

Been using this stuff occasionally for about a year now when I cant be bothered to dry to car or don't have the time to get out Future Armour or BSD or when doing a touch less wash [snow foam then rinse]

250 ml in 10l watering can pour over, jobs a goodun.

Ive not used a pour on shine before so cant compare it to another but it will clear about 90% of the water from my car and does give it an additional shine, cant comment on durability as my car gets regular top ups for Future Armour once a week.

Im lead to beleve this is the demon shine just in bulk

thanks everyone for the recommendations

Both are good but I would seriously consider Future Armour as it can be diluted 50/50 with water and still give a great finish and is more durable than BSD.

Can be applied wet and I find it a better drying aid than BSD

Check this out at 50/50 dilution
