We have all seen the TV ads for
Doctor®. I ordered a bottle of
each, fully intending to send it back (empty) with a scathing nasty-gram citing "truth in advertising", if it didn't do everything claimed in the ads. Let me tell you from personal experience; it worked so well, I ordered ANOTHER bottle
Wipe New®, and several friends who had seen the results when I applied it to the aftermarket fender flares on my Jeep, ordered bottles for their cars.
For those of you who use Armor All® and find that 3 days later (or after a day in the sun), your dashboard and trim is just as
gnarly as it was before, you just have to try
Two points of information: The 1½ ounce size bottle is enough to do all the surfaces of a car, provided you don't have an SUV with huge fender flares. You can also use this product to restore clarity to oxidized plastic headlights.
Application tips: Use sparingly; it doesn't take much. Wipe ONCE in ONE DIRECTION. DO NOT use this stuff on anything you plan to put decals on, or on any surface you plan to glue or tape stuff to – once you apply
to a plastic surface, it becomes like Teflon®; nothing will stick to it. The stuff is expensive because it uses nano-polymer technology. Now I'm not a chemist; I have no idea what a 'polymer' is, but a 'nano' polymer means it's really, really, really small
– like, microscopic. I could care less. The only thing I care about is if it works, and I can tell you that
both of these products far exceeded my expectations. The dashboard I did with
Wipe New® in October 2012, looks like I did it just now in July 2013. I have no doubt that the finish will last through their 2 year guarantee.
Other uses I've found for
Wipe New®: Use the foam applicator wand (included in the kit) to treat the keys on your computer keyboard. Clean the keys with isopropyl alcohol first, treat very, very lightly with this stuff, and let it dry for 24 hours before you touch the keys – it will keep the letters on the keys from wearing out. DO NOT drip this stuff between the keys; it will ruin the keyboard!
WARNING: HIGHLY FLAMMABLE. Do not breathe the fumes (it actually smells like "new car smell"), and do NOT get this stuff on your car's paint. Don't smoke when working with this stuff, either.
