    Took the car for a 47mile errand and had to clean her when I got home.
    So the usual pressure wash, snow foamed, pressure washed, washed.
    Now normally for my weekly wash I would dry with microfibre towels but I’ve just bought Gyeon Wet Wash and can honestly say it is ferkin’ awesome.
    I use Gyeon Bathe+ to wash the car and must say the water just beads off using this, however with the addition of Wet Coat the water literally runs off leaving very little to dry and leaves the paintwork with a nice shine and silky feel - I’m hooked .

    Normal weekly wash today and must admit the Gyeon Wet Coat lives up to its name - holy sh*t the water just runs off after the first pass with pressure wash
    Treated the better half’s X-trail to a maintenance wash and finished with Wet Coat (not that she’s gonna notice)

    Be very careful with Gyeon Wet Coat. It can build up on the car if not fully rinsed off. It can also leave what looks like dried in water marks and is a pain to remove.

    If you like the water beading off.... but with a little more elbow grease applied then Collinite 845 Insulator wax is really good. Goes on and comes off very easily. Lasts for months too.

    I recently used auto finesse aqua coat which is the same sort of thing... Did exactly as it said but still got the dried water marks... Which is very annoying! I always use my collinite thanks to the heads up from @Legojon about the liquid version. As long as its warm it does an awesome job!

    Yeah the SiO2 dries solid if you don’t completely rinse it or dry it after.

    I put my Collinite in warm water then gave it a good shake to get it mixed back in. But now it liquifies quite easily.

    Have used gyeon Wet Coat a few times now and always just spritz one panel at a time then immediately power wash off, once whole car done then I dry it with either MF towels or power dryer - haven’t got any water spots

    It said on the bottle to spray the car when wet then wash it off maybe this is the way forward but I have no trust in it now lol them dry water marks are annoying to get off!

    I honestly can’t recommend this enough, so been at work for two weeks and come back to filthy cars - done my normal maintenance wash (power wash/snow foam/power wash rinse/hand wash/power wash rinse) and at each stage there is crazy water run-off, I mean the hydrophobic properties are insane
