Morning all , in the last 2o years I have used varrios waxing products and cleaning stuff on my cars, always been kept to a hiigh standard of clean , I'm just like that , but I have found that Autoglym is one of the easiest waxes to use for waxing on and taking off , some you put on and some you really have to rub at to getting it off, I use that on the cars and the caravan, easiest thing going there's also a spray on wax that I got from I think B&M home bargains, W2 ,which I use 4 quick wax you just spray it on rub in and that's it ! Canni stuff to .
Happy cleaning .

Autoglym don't make a wax Craig.
They make polish and a polymer sealant to finish off with which acts a bit like a wax but doesn't last as long.

Started to polish my roof today with Meguirs, glad I ran out as I then went on to use Autoglym to finish the rest of the roof off.
The elbow grease required for the Meguirs was beginning to wear me down!
Using the Autoglym was so easy [compared to the Meguirs] and with a better result.

Were you using Meguiars Step 2 polish Kev or one of their other products?
I've never had any problems with buffing it when used as per the instructions, and unlike Autoglym polish it doesn't leave a white dusty residue behind.

Parksy,
What would you class Autoglym Aquawax as, if you say they do not make a wax.
Whilst on the subject of Autoglym products, has anyone actually used their Aquawax, as I'm tempted to purchase the kit they sell in Halfords, but at £15.99 would like to know if it is effective. Keeping my Adria Astella clean is hard work as well as time consuming.
Regards

I just use a large pair of steps to get to the roof for washing it with the brush I've not wax the roof I wouldn't dare chance walking on the roof just in case my luck gave in as well as the roof !! Like someone previously says Baileys did advertise a car on top of one of theirs but not for me !! :unsure:

Apologies, it seems that Autoglym do make a wax now. :blush:
I haven't tried it but might give it a go when it's time to buy some.

Steve I was using the step 2, used it a few times now and can't really remember it being so hard work in the past. Also can't say I am aware of a residue on the autoglym polish.
Maybe as it was half a bottle left from last year it had gone off a bit ????? I did give it a good shake though.
