Y'all trollin '....!
All I use is H2o and some C17H25CooNa for years on all our cars. This is 25 year old black paint on one of Bavarias finest. Once a year before summer she'll be treated to a wax/polish.

Whoops, Now you're just coming across as a bit of a d*ck.
LOL Doug. LOL Pete too, now that I think about it.

I read somewhere on the Internet, so it must be true, that there is no such thing as 100% carnumba wax. If it was, it would be a solid block and unusable. You have to dissolve it in solvents, and so really (my hypothesis) it's the composition of the solvents and other ingredients that differentiate the different varieties.

Look at me and the big words! :yikes:

My undergraduate tutor was a geneticist whose thesis was on chimerism in cats; which cats have evenly divided two color noses.

Mix 30 mills (2 tablespoons) of Silicone and
2 tablespoons of Polysorbate 20 T solution (Emulsifier) together first.
Then poor into 32 oz (1 quart ) spray bottle then add distilled water.
Shake vigorously for 1 minute then away you go.
Polysorbate 20 T solution can be purchased at Walmart for $6.49
Awesome!
Thank you!

For anyone else looking for the components of this magic elixir, this is what I came up with:

MicroLubrol 200 PDMS Silicon

Polysorbate 20 T solution Emulsifier
