Let’s start by saying that there is absolutely no harm in waxing your car as soon as you bring it home. We’re not quite sure where this myth got started, but cars are frequently washed and waxed on the car dealer’s lots while they are waiting to be sold. In fact, many dealers opt for cheap car wash soaps and shampoos that will actually remove any protection on the paint, leaving your car vulnerable to the elements.

The first step in preparing to wax your car begins with a high-quality car wash product. Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash is an excellent choice if your vehicle is lightly-moderately soiled and you don’t want to haul out the hose and bucket.

Eco Touch Quick Wax is a spray car wax which is enhanced with carnauba. It only takes about 15 minutes to wax an average sized sedan. The protection will last an average of 3 - 6 weeks depending on where you live and the time of year. 

As you can see, waxing a new car is a simple process with little effort require. So next time you get a new car, be sure to grab your bottle of wax right away and add a bit of protection!
