Cloudy/Milky

Recommended Posts

Any advise on what is best to wash a car to strip back any waxes etc, its only on my daily but its a great colour but looks like there is a cloudy/milky film (possibly like someone has left soapy water to dry on it), a rub with some polish seems to give a shine, but as soon as its washed (meguirs shampoo), it comes back.

Got any pictures?

 

Tar and glue remover or fallout remover should kill off any waxes. Clay (cloth or bar) and/or polish will certainly get rid of anything lingering on the surface though.

Ah just the man i hoped would reply.

 

I have tried to photo it but it doesnt really highlight the issue.

 

Imagine using a dirty chamois in the old days, best way i can explain it, or soapy water has dried on.

 

I had some 3m finesse it lying around and did the whole bus sometime ago because of it and it looked great, soon as it got washed, it came back.

Polished by hand or machine? Did you washed yourself when it came back? What shampoo were you using, as it could be that?

 

Sounds like there's an oily film on the surface, so I'd suggest claying an affected area and washing again to see if that sorts it. A deep cleanse would probably help (clay, tar & glue and then a good paint cleaner or another bash with the 3m you've got to finish it off) depending on how much time/effort you're willing to spend on it.

Polished by hand and Meguiars NXT.

 

Thanks for the advise, will try claying a panel and see what results that brings, if thats not go will get a tar remover. :thumbs:
