Wipe New Trim Restore FAQs

    How much Wipe New® is needed for my vehicle?

    With Wipe New®, a little goes a long way. Since you only apply Wipe New® in a single wipe across the surface with very little overlap, 1.5 ounces is enough, in most cases, to treat the interior or exterior of an average mid-sized vehicle. If the surface is badly faded and/or porous, a second application may be needed for the best effect.

    Do I have to wear gloves when using Wipe New®?

    We recommend wearing the included gloves when applying Wipe New® because once dry it can be difficult to remove from your skin, and may also be slightly irritating to some people.

    What is the purpose of the headlight prep pad?

    The headlight prep pad is used to remove heavy oxidation from the lens before applying Wipe New®. Simply rub the green side of the pad onto the lens in a back and forth motion, then rinse with water and dry. The pad has a very fine 2000 grit sand surface that gently removes the oxidation without damaging the acrylic. After prepping the headlight, apply Wipe New® according to package directions.

    What is the purpose of the applicator brush?

    The sponge tip of the applicator brush will allow you to touch up small nooks and crannies around your headlights, grill inserts, rear view mirrors, interior HVAC vents, and other hard to reach areas. Simply dip the sponge tip into your Wipe New® bottle and apply in the desired area.

    What are the differences between the microfiber cloths?

    The two yellow cloths included in your Wipe New® Pro Detailing kit are specially designed to fit inside the palm of your hand for a better controlled application. The red cloth is slightly larger and can be used to apply Wipe New® to headlights or other surfaces. Both cloths allow for better absorption without waste, fraying or excess lint that can mess up your application; each will produce the same result so you can use the cloth that you find works best for your need.
