    MIke, DC liquid cleaner wax VS IMPROVED DC liquid cleaner wax; what's the diff?

    Mike,

    I got some leftover stuff from a guy, and included was some non- New and Improved A1216.

    I know the part about the N&I 1216 "beading like crazy", and the new stuff smells a lot better. Otherwise, are there any differences I should take note of?

    Hi Tom,

    The New & Improved A-12 Cleaner/Wax adds more richness to a dark colored finish, it lasts longer and it beads water better. It may apply and remove easier.

    One other note: A-12 is a cleaner/wax for lightly neglected surfaces, it's not in the same category as a product like ColorX. So if you have an extremely neglected surface, ColorX is the product you want to use. If the car's finish you're working on has only light oxidation, road staining, swirls and scratches, the A-12 is a better choice. Less cleaning ability, more polishing and protection characteristics.

    Thanks, Mike. With 25 different waxes on the shelf, including N&I A-12 liquid and paste, it sounds like that's a "give it to a friend" product.
