Ace Hardware stores are selling Zymol Car Shampoo, Cleaner Wax, and Leather Conditioner. Has anyone used Zymol products before?

I heard that Zymol Cleaner Wax can be a pain to use. Need to have optimal drying time (else streaks) and need to spray a little water after waxing then wipe off.

Any comments?

the zymol's are pretty cheap in the US
anyway, tried the cleaner wax on the old car which was littered with water mark
it did well in removing the marks and covering most fine swirls and scratches
can't comment on the durability cos car sold 3 weeks after the job
one i thing i noted is that it's pretty hard to remove after i left it a bit too long to set
was taking my own sweet time before starting to buff off
ended up spending more time to buff off than really applying the product

as for the leather cream, tried that and it seems to be absorbed fast leaving minimal residue
seems to work as good as the AG leather conditioner, but with a more pleasant smell

Thanks for the feedback. Yeh, I heard about the difficulty in removing the wax if it is left to dry for too long. But I read that spraying with water then wiping it will allow for faster and streakless wax removal.

Tried the Zymol auto wash.. but cannot recall bought from which ace branch smile_clown.gif



Suds are crazy! a lot more than NXT and stays in the bucket way longer. But I cannot tell if its better than NXT in term of cleaning power. Funny banana smell.
