|Q1 What is Dri-Wash'n GUARD®?
R DRI-WASH' N GUARD® is at the same time used for washing, polishing and
protecting the cars. It applies without water, directly to soiled surface. It does not contain a wax and is more than a simple
The waxes protect well, but often leave the matt emulsion paint. As
for polishing products, they are very useful to eliminate the
minor spots and defects, and are able much more to renovate dull
painting. But they often contain abrasives, and get very little
protection on the painted surfaces. The sealing compounds for
painting protect effectively, but cannot clean or polish. Indeed, the
painting of the car must be practically perfect so that these products
can be applied. However Dri-Wash' N Guard® combines best qualities of
products of waxing, polishing and sealing without having the
disadvantages of them.
Q2 How is it made that we can apply Dri-Wash' N Guard® to a dirty
R Dri-Wash' N Guard® contains 47 ingredients, like wetting agents,
lubricating and protective, which were never used by the industry of
the car cleaning products.
The detergents and wetting agents of Dri-Wash' N Guard® are combined
to soften and emulsify the dirtiness of surface, whereas a special
mixture of liquids containing polymeroxane and lubricants
hydrophenolic attaches to surface a microscopic layer of PolyGuard-3®.
PolyGuard-3® is an extremely rare substance (and expensive) which
ensures a layer of dependent protection against any abrasive remaining
non dissolved by the detergents and the wetting agents.
Q3 How do I have to maintain my vehicle between the applications of Dri-Wash' N Guard®?
R It is EASY, you should use only two soft fabric linens sponges:
small and another the largest. Wet smallest with water until it is
well soaked, then slightly pass it on the suface to be cleaned (like
the hood). DO NOT RUB TOO EXTREMELY. Dust and water do not adhere to
the film of Dri-Wash' N Guard® which is there. Take the dry towel now
dries and slightly wipe the wetland until it is dry. The original
glare of Dri-Wash' N Guard® will return at once. Normally, usually,
it is enough to wet the small towel once to clean a whole car.
It is necessary however to use a little common sense: if your car
is really dirty, (dried mud cover, stones, etc.) you must remove
these dirtinesses of surface carefully.

blades of windscreen wiper, the ice scraper, etc... Applied to
the painting of a new vehicle, then applied again twice per year,
Dri-Wash' N Guard® will preserve the glare of painting. Once that
oxidation starts, however, it cannot be stopped, only slowed down. In
the case of old paintings extremely oxidized, Dri-Wash' N Guard® can
have to be applied as often as all the 2 or 3 months, even if painting
remains protected and that water continues to bead there. Dri-Wash' N
Guard® contributes to protect surfaces against the effects of the
