|How often to wax ?
Question : There are many brands of car wax in the market. I understand that frequent use of wax will
protect the paint. However, I also heard that
frequent waxing will make the paint on the car
thinner. What is the appropriate frequency of
waxing the car?
Answer : Waxing does not make the paint thinner but
sometimes to get back the sheen a rubbing compound or an abrasive-type polish is
used that cuts out a film off the paint to bring back the shine. Particularly
with paints that do not have a clear top coat, this will wear down the
paint. So the rule is to use pure wax polishes that give the shine and protect.
