I saw this being done by a detailer online. He mentions using spray wax on interior panels,hard plastics,and dashboards. What does everyone think of that?

I've never tried it but, I would think that any spray wax on interior surfaces would cause fading/chalking/hazing like putting wax on flat black surfaces. It's a NO-NO!.

I am having a hard time with this.

Products are formulated to work with specific types of materials.

I can not believe that all interior plastic materials will work well with all exterior spray waxes.

I'm no detailer but I've seen a spray car wash product in a bottle used on interior bits and certain dashboards but not the kind of spray wax product I think you're referring to....like Griot's, Mothers, etc. I believe the premise of using the car wash in the bottle vs. the spray wax is that there's little or no smear that can be both built on and become hard to remove.

To me, it would be interesting to see how much the spray wax would differ from using a waxy, greasy product like Endust over time. I would really hesitate to use it.

Spray WAX inside the car? bad idea.

Spray synthetic/sealant inside the car? Meh... might work, but IMHO not your best option.

Spray protectant, like Aerospace 303, on interior trim/plastics? Absolutely.


Use what's most appropriate.

I think that's what he used,a synthetic spray wax that contains no carnauba. Meguiars maybe?

If it was Meguiars, then it was probably something like Megs Ultimate Quik Wax, which is a 'clear' synthetic spray "wax" (really a sealant), which is also essentially the same thing as Megs D156 (same product but with a different scent).

I use D156, and while I would agree that it probably COULD be used on interior plastics/trim... I would never use it this way. IMHO, it shines (forgive the pun) as a regular weekly spray wax topper on the paint, and should be used for this purpose. Aerospace 303 works amazingly well as an interior protectant on dash/plastic/trim, so I can't see using D156 in place of it...

... Just as I would NEVER use Aerospace 303 on my paint.

I think FastEddie on here has mentioned this idea and he's a professional detailer. Not sure if he used the Megs Ultimate Detailer or the Spray wax. The detailer has some cleaning ability and some protectants. But the pure wax seems like a bit much. Kind of skeptical using products this way, for their unintended use.

He details prob hundreds of cars per year so he looks at things differently than the hobbyist detailer.

There are very few products that you could use on painted surfaces and interior plastics. The last thing I would want is a greasy or wet/shiny finish on something like a dashboard.

Just use the right product for the job.

I've used Megs D156 on some various finishes including matte bicycle frames and shot peened ano aluminum as well as painted plastics. I'm sure it would work just fine but I don't see the advantage over a product like 303 or Megs M40.

I've heard of quick detail sprays being diluted and used as interior products. Another is Optimums washless product called No Rinse. It is being diluted down and used for interiors.

Would you recommend Megs Ultimate Quik Wax OVER the top of a Megs Carnuba paste wax or better to skip the Carnuba?

Thanks

How can the white hazing from Carnuba paste wax be removed from exterior black plastics?

Thanks

Not trying to steal the thread but what is the difference between interior cleaners and conditioners? They all mainly seem to be the the same thing. Both say they clean and protect...
Is one more for cleaning and vice versa?

Here's the video of the spray wax being used on the dashboard:
