The number one use for Detail Spray is to add a super glossy shine to your ride, quickly and very easily. Use Detail Spray when you arrive at a cruise-in to give your car, truck, or bike that just-waxed fresh look, or to remove those annoying fingerprints or smudges from those that fail to follow the “Please look but don’t touch” unspoken rule of most cars shows. Detail Spray is great for carefully removing fresh bug splatter on your bumper, headlights, and hood, or to remove bird bombs before the acids and grit cause permanent damage to the clear coat. Just make sure to use a dedicated premium microfiber towel for bug guts and bird droppings, so that you aren’t wiping that contamination onto other areas of the paint and potentially creating scratches or other damage. Appropriate towel examples will be discussed below. Adam’s Detail Spray is great for using after a show, too, once your pride and joy is tucked away safely in the garage, if you need to remove a little light dust buildup from the drive home.
Everyone that tries Detail Spray for the first time is blown away by how it performs. Adam’s Detail Spray truly is a spray-and-wipe formula, with perfect streak-free results. Simply mist a spray or two onto a panel, quickly spread it evenly with one side of a plush microfiber towel, and then flip the towel over and wipe the area a second time for an outstanding shine and super slick feel. On show vehicles especially, where you may use a more traditional wax like Americana, Buttery Wax, or Patriot Wax, Detail Spray is the perfect maintenance product to extend the life and enhance the look of the wax in-between fresh applications of wax. While we do have maintenance sprays designed for ceramic coated surfaces, the polymers in our Detail Spray will not harm or impact your ceramic coating either, so it is safe to use on our Graphene Ceramic Coating™, UV Ceramic Paint Coating, and UV Ceramic Wheel Coating if you need a fast cleanup at an event. Adam’s Detail Spray is made for multiple surfaces - paint, glass, and chrome - though we don’t recommend using it on vinyl tops, tonneau covers, or interior surfaces like leather, plastic, or vinyl.
Towel Selection - Which Towel is Right for Your Vehicle?
The goal of Detail Spray is to wipe your vehicle down to give it extra gloss and depth, but you don’t want to cause any damage while doing this, so it is very important to select the correct premium microfiber towel for the job. Most cheaper, store-bought microfiber towels have tags sewn into them, as well as lower GSM (grams per square meter) ratings - meaning they are not as soft and can sometimes feel coarse or almost stick onto your fingers. Plus, they usually have melted rough edges from the manufacturing process. All three of these factors can cause significant scratching and damage to your vehicle’s paint, especially if it has a softer clear coat. All of our microfiber towels are premium towels sourced from Korea, with a 70/30 blend of polyester and polyamide, are tagless, and have either scratch-free satin borders or an edgeless, or borderless, design.
Our Single Soft Towel, Borderless Grey Towel, and Double Soft Towel are all excellent choices for use with Detail Spray as a quick detailer. The Single Soft Towel is a microfiber towel with a plush feel but not too thick. It’s rated at 480GSM, so it is delicate for soft paint, and excellent for wiping away Detail Spray residue without smearing or streaks. The white color makes it very easy to see how much dirt or dust builds up into a folded section of the towel before you need to flip to a new clean section. Our Borderless Grey Towel, also rated at 480GSM, has a similar feel to the Single Soft, but has a no-stitch borderless design. It’s the preferred towel of many of our show team detailers when wiping down auction vehicles at Barrett-Jackson auction events. Our third option for wipe-downs with Detail Spray is our Double Soft Towel. This is our softest, most plush towel that we offer, coming in at a very high 920GSM - it’s actually two towels sewn together with the scratch-free satin border, for the most delicate finishes.
Whichever towel you choose, make sure to fold the towel into fourths, and flip and fold the towel to a clean side often during use, so that you are not dragging dust and dirt particles onto other areas of the vehicle as you wipe it down. Quick, but long and straight sweeping wipes with your preferred microfiber towel will be the most effective way to remove all of the residue for a streak-free finish.
