^ you need to be careful with Simple Green on aluminum engine components in particular. The alkalinity can cause oxidation.

I like Stoner's Tarminator a lot since you mentioned their Trim Shine before. Plus I think it works much better than the TW option. I'll have to try out Zip Wax shampoo sometime since I ran out of soap last year.

I have found TW Ice spray wax to be very easy to use.

After researching sealants the last few weeks on Autopia/Autogeek:

1. Turtle Wax Shine N Seal
2. Meguiar's Soap
3. Mother's Speed Clay
4. Meguiar's Quick Interior Detailer
5. Hyper-Dressing for Engine
6. Infinity Wax Rubber Wax

I'll likely add a wax in November, prior to winter, then layer TWSNS on top for added durability.

There are more auto care products on the market today than Carter has pills (showin' my age there). But here is what I'm using in 2019 for either my 2017 Accord EX-L V-6 MT (A) or my '95 Civic (C), or both (B), for what it's worth:

* Wash: Optimum No-Rinse (B). Once in a blue moon I'll use either Optimum Car Wash and a foamer, or Meguiar's Gold Class wash.
* Wax: Optimum Car Wax (A); Collinite 476s (C). I have PPF on (A) and paste wax does not play nicely with the PPF edges.
* Sealant: P&S Bead Maker (A). I just acquired some Jescar Power Lock and hope to apply it soon, using P&S Bead Maker as a topper.
* Drying aid: P&S Bead Maker (B) or Optimum Opti-Seal (B).
* Protectant: 303 (B).
* Leather: Lexol (A) or Optimum Leather Protectant (A). I like the smell of Lexol, IMO it makes the leather smell leathery again.
* Wheel/Tires: P&S Brake Buster (B).

In the miscellaneous category, I used 3D ONE polish on (C) a couple of weeks ago with a wool cutting pad and red polishing pad, and was impressed with the results. I have some Menzerna 3800 for jeweling (A) next year, probably after I retire.


I should know better than to try and add "Motor Oil" to an ENGINE...

For aluminum, try Extreme Simple Green Aircraft Precision Cleaner.
