Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax Kit

This kit includes 4 microfiber towels, 1 gallon of Wash Wax, 1 16 oz spray bottle of Wash Wax, a product guide, and a how to use guide. You seamlessly spray the product onto your RV and wipe it down with a microfiber towel found in the kit. The wax may leave your RV shining for some time, giving you that new RV look. 

This is a water-based product free of alcohol and ammonia to clean your RV gently. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly product, this might be an ideal option for you.

The Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax Kit requires no water to use, and the product is biodegradable. As they sell the product in a sizeable amount, this could easily last you a while before you have to buy more. I strongly dislike leaving my vehicle in the hands of a carwash, so a product like this seems heaven sent!

It works and is stupidly simple to do. There. That’s why there’s a billion glowing reviews for this product. So instead, here’s some useful information :

Wash Wax All can be used as a “waterless wash and wax” or a “wet wash, wax as you dry”. For the first, use Wash Wax All on a dry car, cleaning with a microfiber towel and drying with another. For the other, wash your car with water and whatever cleaner you use, wax by spraying Wash Wax All on the wet car and dry with microfiber towel. The fact that it works equally well with or without water is useful as I found out when I didn’t beat a light rain shower while using Wash Wax All on my car. I just kept going and everything still worked fine.

Wash Wax All is the center of a constellation of products by Aero Cosmetics. According to them, Wash Wax All works on anything that can be washed and waxed : paint, plastic, glass, metal, rubber, leather, pleather, etc. Their other products handle specific situations like : degreaser for greasy stuff, rubber care for soaking into rubber and plastics, polish for scratches and oxidation, water spot remover for … you get the picture. Almost always, Wash Wax All is used at the end.

Wash Wax All is a “dirt cleaner”. It cleans off dirt, not gritty things (mud, sand, salt) which have to be cleaned off first according to Aero. (I’ll note that people do use it on gritty things, including myself, but you better be prepared to use a LOT of product and the right technique to avoid scratching.) It doesn’t contain any wax cleaners so any time you use it, the wax sits on top of whatever other wax was already there.

Wash Wax All is a “sealant” that gives a shiny shiny (did I mention shiny) result. You will not confuse it with a deep glowing “wax”. If lucky, it could have a lifespan of 6 months according to Aero. As a note, since any new layer bonds to existing ones, you could end up with a lot of layers if you wash regularly. Another note is that if you then take your car to a car wash, all your layers will be gone as basically all car washes strip off anything already there.

On a Honda Accord 4-Door, I use about 4 ounces of product per wash unless I have a gritty stuff then it can go up to 8 ounces or more. On average, it takes me about 20-30 minutes from top to bottom including treatment of tires with Degreaser and Rubber Care.

These quick, dissolving drop-ins can control any foul odors your tank might have. I’m very sensitive to smells, and I wish I had known this product sooner!

These work, and they work well. Plain and simple. My wife and I just moved into a 5th wheel full time. Stepping on that toilet pedal and opening that hole above the black water tank is no longer a concern. It was terrifying before we got these. They do an amazing job at eliminating the odor. As far as breaking waste and paper down, it seems like it’s doing the job as well.

Struggling to find a product that properly cleans and breaks down waste in your RV’s black water tank? The citrus scent and powerful effect of this product could be what you need.

Using this product is very easy, you just drop a bag into your black water tank and flush. These drop-ins are marine approved, biodegradable, and they work well for septic tanks of all kinds.

The Camco TST citrus drop-ins are also fortunately very economical. In one container, you should receive 30 drop-ins. One container might be sufficient depending on how often and far you’re traveling.

This bin of thirty Toilet Tank Drop-ins is cost-effective and a very good product.

Simple to use, with a clean citrus smell, these packets help break down waste and single-ply toilet paper in your black-water tank. We use about once daily if the toilet is being regularly used. Drop, flush for about 5-10 seconds and worries are gone, while foul odors are eliminated.

At the price offered, this is a good bargain and certainly cheaper than buying in a RV supply store or campsite store! Easy Five Star rating and a hearty and “odorless” recommendation!

Best For Rubber  Floor B.E.S.T. Rubber Roof Cleaner/Protectant

Highlights

Highlights

Taking care of your RV is important, so this product might be a substantial addition to your RV cleaning product collection. It is easy to use this Rubber Roof Cleaner/Protectant.

You use the product to scrub the rubber roof and follow that with a rinse. If fungus, mildew, or mold has grown on your RV’s rubber roof, this cleaner may remove that and leave your roof clean.

This product includes cleaning, conditioning, and protection all-in-one, so it might not require you to do a 2-step process. The 48oz container can last for a few washes depending on how many times you wash your RV and how much you use.

I travel a lot, and during the change of seasons, my vehicle’s roof always gets extremely dirty. If you experience this issue too, stock up on a few extra containers, for when you get on the road!

Good For:

Thought I would scrub off the bulk of the grime with Dawn detergent and hot water… I scrubbed my butt off. Then applied B.E.S.T., it came even cleaner. I then skipped using the Dawn for the next section and B.E.S.T. worked great. I still scrubbed with a nylon brush, but it came cleaner with one step. Also, I guess the protective coating is a film of a somewhat slippery material, so be careful while on the roof. I guess time will tell how well the protective coating works.

I have always used Meguiar’s products to wash and wax my cars. so when I got my first RV, I naturally used Meguiar’s RV wash. I used that for a few years and always struggled to get the difficult bug / road debris stains off of the front and it never did a great job at getting the black streaks off. I just figured that was normal for washing RV’s.

On a whim, I bought this stuff, and boy am I glad I did! The first time I used it, it took off stains that Meguiar’s had left behind and with much less effort too. It didn’t leave behind a single black streak or bug. As others have suggested, use HOT water to mix it. That really seems to help it work faster.

My only regret is not trying it sooner. To think of all the time I have wasted through the years struggling to get stains off with Meguiar’s.

Each of the RV cleaning products offers competitive features. However, amid all this information, the best product might be the Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax kit.

This product is economical, value for money, and it lasts for some time. It also fulfills its primary aim, which is to wash and wax RV’s.

It is easy to use the Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax Kit and is also extremely environmental-friendly compared to the other products we’ve reviewed.

If you need RV cleaning products that work, the Wet or Waterless Car Wash Wax kit might be a great pick.
