How Long Does a Wax Really Last?

Denney Asks:

If using on a automobile how long does it last before needing to be used again under normal conditions?

Wade Responds:

If you are referring to Wade Wax, like any wax, the length of time it protects will vary.  Wade Wax is considered a “once a year wax.”  However that is just an industry term. Waxes are topical and will last between 3 to 6 months depending on environmental conditions and  care.  So, how does the industry come up with calling it a “once a year wax”?  Well, they give the longest number that would be true in a perfect environment such as a museum.   So, if you plan to keep your automobile in a museum, then you will only need to worry about waxing once a year.  But if you are like the rest of us then you will want to use Wade every 3 to 4 months.

Hope this helps,
