can i use a buffer to wax my car?
yes, but there's some preparation that has to be done before doing so.
#1 if your car is cold, it needs to sit in the sun for 30 minutes or more on a hot day under shade before waxing can begin. the reasoning behind this is because cold tar on the car will not be able to release excessive heat when applied with hot wax later on. on the contrary, if your car was warm (not heated), you should let it cool for 10-15 minutes before starting.
#2 apply protective coating of quality polish onto primer parts of hood and roof before waxing begins that don't need immediate protection (e.g., the center of hood). this prevents damage from overzealous rubbing after
is it better to hand wax or use a buffer?
using a buffer can be better for certain furniture because if the piece is curved it's hard to see all the spots that need attention.
it all depends on what you're going for. many people agree that a buffed surface has a noticeably smoother texture, and provides more protection from scratches and spills since it produces less dust particles during sanding. one drawback is how much work it takes to hand wax – many people need to take time off work just to do this one task properly! buffing also becomes more costly as well as time-consuming as your furniture becomes larger or as the finish begins wearing away with age.
ultimately, both methods have their advantages and disadvantages, so it's up to personal preference which method you
how do you wax a car with an electric buffer?
to wax a car with an electric buffer, the vehicle needs to be on a level surface and plugged into an outlet. this machine consists of a power cord and the machine itself that is spinning while attached to the outside edge of it and pushing inwards while spinning.
this process should be done in one direction only, starting at the top and moving down. we recommend doing 10 feet intervals until you have reached your goal area. with each pass, you are rinsing out the composition before putting it on fresh for optimum results. we recommend changing up your side often because excessive heat can damage sensitive paint jobs or thinner materials quicker than others.
do you use a buffer to remove wax?
i do not.
wax is a polymer of fatty acids that can attach to surfaces that have been applied with soap or cleanser, hence the need for a buffer that removes wax. soap is derived from alkali salt of fatty acids, so any built-up soap on the surface will require removal by means of detergent followed by rinsing it with water. using powder buffers are also effective at removing these builds ups but you are best advised to introduce some hot water prior too working away the wax in order for it release easily and minimize pain when scrubbing them off.
i use laundry liquids (dishwashers is another option). without introducing some form of soap into the mix, my dishwasher has an
