I hand wash than hang to dry and re-use it a few times doing the same before going to a new towel.

Tested out the new SnS formula today. Smells better and looks like gloss is a bit better too. Also, doesn't seem to attract as much dust as the old formula.

Image

Process:

1. Foam cannon using CG Mr.Pink(let sit for 2 mins)
2. Rinse
3. Two bucket method with TW hybrid wash and wax
4. Rinse again
5. Dry using two Meguiars waffle drying cloth from the dollarama RFD deal
6. Quick coat of TW hybrid ceramic wax
7. Sit for an hour
8. Coat of TW SnS new formula(waited 2 hours before driving off)

I already had 1 layer of hybrid ceramic that was on my car for a little over 2 months which is why I didn't bother clay baring or curing for 24 hours plus this was just a top off as I was eager to try the new SnS formula.

Car is 7 years old and has been parked outside everyday. Never went to a detailer to get it paint corrected. I was already a fan of the old SnS except for the dust attraction but now with the new formula on top of the hybrid ceramic. My paint looks like a mirror and almost brand new. I just hope it lasts just as long.

Applied my 1st coat. Had it outside (no garage), so far only light dust. I see I need to wash (remove the dust) before applying second coat, will waterless carwash (sanszo) do the trick before applying the 2nd coat?

Picked up a bottle of the new formula SnS $14.97 at Grandview Hwy Walmart in Vancouver they had the new formula ones mixed in with the old ones only 1 bottle of new formula left on the shelf. Also picked up a bottle of the Ceramic Coating about 4-5 bottles still available, 2-3 bottles of the polish and wax still available and 7-8 jugs of the wash and wax on the shelf as of noon today.

So about two days later and driving across the city and some backroads.

The new SnS still attracts dust but not as much as the old formula. Hybrid cermaic spray is still better when it comes to dust management as it produces
a slicker/smoother surface. The new SnS does have better gloss than both the hybrid ceramic and old formula.

In terms of ranking

1. Hybrid Ceramic spray (proven longevity and chemical resistance with decent gloss and smoother surface. Produces the best beads too)

2. Seal N Shine new formula (Best gloss from all three, has UV protection, smells the best and easy to apply. Surface is stickier than hybrid ceramic due to the caranuba wax but its a really good top off wax to protect the sealant)

3. Seal N Shine old formula(proven chemical resistance, slightly better gloss than hybrid ceramic and easy to apply)

Grab the hybrid ceramic while its still the same price as the SnS but if you absolutely need wax right now than the new SnS should give you 2 months of protection until you can find some hybrid ceramic

What detergent do you use to wash the mirco-fiber towels? Is it ok to use regular laundry detergent (eg. Tide)? I had washed some MFs previously (can't recall exactly what I did), but the MF didn't feel the "same" after the wash. The MF had a tacky feel to it rather than the original "smoother" feel. Anyway to get the original "smooth" feel back after washing MFs? The laundered tacky-feeling MFs don't seem to clean as nice...

Did you use the hybrid ceramic on the windshield and head/taillights as well?

Of course, you can even use it on your rims/wheels so they don't get dirty as fast.

I got this spray because it has UV protection, and I want to use it on top of my Suntek Ultra PPF for additional protection. This is especially because I have a light coloured car, and I don't want to risk UV causing any yellowing of the PPF adhesive over time. (The TW website Q&A section states this product is safe for PPF.) After applying on a small area of PPF, the coating looks ... pretty normal. The reflections are *slightly* different but it really looks totally normal and virtually the same as other areas.

Has anyone else tried this TW Hyrbid Ceramic Spray on PPF?

I haven't heard of this. But I don't mix different products between different MF towels to begin with. I write the product name on the corner of the towel, using a sharpie. I'll wash this MF and use it again.

Considering that the solvent in this product is IPA, I suppose you could wash your MF towel in 99% IPA to remove any leftover chemicals that might be in it.

What is the benefit of this?

Good question... I am intersted to know how it compares versus Rain-X / AquaPel.

I put some hybrid ceramic on the windows but there was a bit of hazing that was only visible at night so I removed it and retreated my windows with rain-x.

I just use regular laundry detergent. Don't need much. And make sure no fabric softner. IF they are really bad, I may add a little oxyclean and leave them soak for a while before washing.

Then I usually hang dry them, or very low tumble dry.

Once they get a little too dirty, and not too comfortable for using on my paint, I'll just use them for detailing the interior. I have 2 piles. 1 pile of towels in great shape, and one in "acceptable" but not for body use.

Isn’t it because you sprayed too much?

Also the haze starts when you use your wipers without any liquid.

Cold water and not much detergent or no dye/sensitive if you have it. Dryer is fine but no high heat... I just use the air setting and they come out perfect.
