We know you probably don’t sit around and talk about car wax…but maybe that’s just because you need some knowledge about auto wax to impress your friends!

At Capitol Shine, one of the questions we constantly receive is “What’s the difference between regular paste wax and spray wax?”

One of the biggest differences between the two is the amount of time it takes to apply – Spray wax is much quicker than regular paste or liquid wax. – Does that mean it is less effective?

The short answer is, it depends. A spray wax is much easier to apply evenly to a vehicle’s exterior. One of the many reasons people choose to use a spray wax is because they can wax their car in less time without worrying about missing a spot. Professional auto detailers (such as yours truly) like both products. A paste wax takes longer to apply, but can also last longer as well as provide better protection. A paste wax creates a better layer of protection for your vehicle which can be extremely useful during those harsh winter OR summer months. A spray wax, however, is a great way to quickly bring out your vehicle’s true shining potential between heavy wax jobs. As already mentioned, a spray wax job is also great because it takes less time and less effort as well as makes it easier to wash in the future!

Different vehicles have different paint jobs as well as different materials (carbon fiber, fiberglass, metal, etc.). We recommend giving both a try to see which method works best for your vehicle. There’s not a “one fits all” style to waxing. But to be fair, wouldn’t that be boring? Your car, truck, van or SUV is a reflection of yourself and your personality. That’s why at Capitol Shine, we believe every vehicle needs to be treated differently.
