I'm no expert on the difference, but I can tell you that Zaino does protect your car's finish and makes it like a mirror! I'm sold on polish at present. I also love Z-6 (if you're familiar with the Z line). It's my new best detailing friend. Amazing!edwars2 said:What exactly is the difference between a Polish and a Wax? Reason I ask is that I was considering trying out the Zaino products which all seem to be based of polish and no mentioning of using a wax. Is this a good idea, or should I stick with a wax product?
