Mother's CMX Wash & Coat

My brother recommended this product. I decided to give it a try, and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm sure there are equal competitor products, so I doubt this is special in any way, but it was my first dive into a ceramic product, and it worked. I bought the spray bottle too, but I haven't used that yet.

There are plenty of online videos and reviews, so let me just make this brief. The product goes in a bucket in place of soap. The product does foam up at first, but essentially it looks like super thin milk. Because of that, it can be hard to wash the car and remember where you wiped, but then again, since it goes on clear, it is easier to see what needs attention because it isn't covering areas with sudds. The product seems to lift the dirt and aid in it washing it away while coating the car. Immediately the water will bead up on the surface and run off the surface more. Not like a professional ceramic coating, but almost as good as a wax. The nicest thing was I didn't get any water spots on the car at all--none. As I dried the car, the towel left the surface spot free and shiny. If there was milky spots or minor residue from the product, it easily wiped away or buffed out.

In the end, the car looked like it had been waxed. It didn't have quite the same depth, richness or blemish coverup as a good Gold's wax, but for a quick wash, it was excellent. I'm sold. I'm sure the product could be layered on a wax. Hopefully it keeps the car staying shiny longer too.
