AG aqua wax

Is this ok to use as a drying aid after every wash?

I do and like it a lot. I've tried mixing it with BSD but have gone back to using it on its own.
Always buff it afterwards as I go.

You can buy AG Express Wax in a 5 litre size and it works out a lot cheaper. It's the same stuff as Aqua Wax.

Its decent stuff.
Beads really nicely on well prepped paint.

I buff with a spritz of Megs Last Touch and the paintwork finish is clear as anything.
Otherwise tends to streak and takes a bit of shifting with just a dry MF.

I like the product but didn't get on with it after every wash, I find it streaks. Perhaps over application on my part. I've 2/3 of a 5L can of Express Wax left so maybe should give it a go again.

Yep - works very well, just remember less is more with this, if you over apply it can smear...

Oh and smells wonderful

I've found the only 2 occasions I've had any issues with it streaking / smearing was when I'd used a wash / wax it really didn't like going on top of.

The other time is if over applied - I find with this less is definitely more

Used to use the trade version "Express Wax" as a drying aid, but i reach for Polar Seal/ Trade version "Coat-it", so much easier to use and i find it beads a lot better and lasts way over a month.

I use a lot of Express Wax. I also have the new 'Coat-It' too. They (Autoglym) recommend that Coat-It is only applied once a month, so I use Express Wax in between. Without fail I'll wash my car once a week so I apply Express wax basically 3 times a month and have no problems at all with it.

If you over apply it or apply it to a panel that's basically dry then you'll end up with excess wax being left on the panel leaving it smeary/streaky. You don't need the panel to be saturated in water, but to get it to spread well there has to be enough water on it as this will help it spread evenly an thinly. I tend to use one spray per panel for the doors and wings etc and 3 maybe 4 on the bonnet and roof. I only use one microfiber to get round the whole car working and finishing one panel at a time. First I spay the product on, then spread it round the whole panel mopping up the majority of the water, then I ring out the microfiber and lightly buff over the panel again to completely dry it, then move onto the next.

I think it's a fantastic product. It leaves a lovely deep 'just waxed' gloss behind and it's so easy to use. I certainly wouldn't be without it.
