Difference Between Quick Detailer and Spray Wax.

Main Differences between Quick Detailers and Spray Waxes.

  • Spray wax must to be applied to a clean surface but detailer sprays can be applied to a slightly dirty surface.
  • Spray waxes are kind of sticky when you spray them on the car and need more buffing than Quick Detailers.
  • Spray waxes don’t have enough lubrication to help you safely remove dirt without causing scratches.
  • Using a spray wax on a dirty car is a big mistake.  Especially on a black car.  Wash it first.
  • Detailer sprays have some lubrication which will allow dust to move smoothly over the surface which reduces the risk of scratching.
  • Spray Waxes add more gloss than Quick Detailers.  Liquid and Paste waxes would add more gloss.
  • The spray wax advantage is that it’s quick to apply and gives a great shine.  So if you wash your car and you want to give the shine a top up it’s hard to beat the convenience of spray wax.  And then, maybe once or twice a year you could use liquid or paste wax to give better protection.
  • Quick Detailers need very little buffing compared to Spray Waxes so take less time to apply.
  • Quick Detailers add some shine and gloss too but it doesn’t last very long.
