    What if I start applying and have to stop? Can I start again later? Will the results match?

    Once you start applying Wipe New® to a surface, we recommend that you complete that entire surface before stopping (for example, if you start treating a bumper, finish the entire bumper before stopping). Stopping and starting again later on the same surface may, in some cases, lead to a visible difference in the final result due to variations in humidity, light, temperature, and other factors. If you must stop and start again later, try to stop at inconspicuous spot on the surface.

    What if it rains after I apply Wipe New®?

    Wipe New® must cure for 24 hours prior to being exposed to any type of moisture including rain, puddles, dew, sprinklers, car washes, mist, etc. If a treated surface gets wet prior to the end of the 24 hour curing period, spotting or streaking may occur. We recommend keeping your vehicle in a garage or other covered area. Another option is to cover it with a car cover. Plastic disposable car covers may be available for purchase for a nominal fee from your local auto parts store.

    Can I use Wipe New® on glass or mirrored surfaces?

    Wipe New® may create a “wavy” effect on glass or mirrored surfaces. If Wipe New® accidentally comes in contact with these types of surfaces, wipe it off immediately. Application to glass or mirrored surfaces is not an approved use for Wipe New® and the Wipe New® Protection Guarantee is not extended to the use of Wipe New® on glass or mirrored surfaces.

    Can Wipe New® be used on clear coat painted surfaces?

    With proper surface preparation and application by a professional detailer in a proper setting, Wipe New® can be very effective on clear coat painted surfaces such as that on most motor vehicles. However, if the surface is not first thoroughly prepared applying Wipe New® will cause the finish to appear streaked. Application to a painted surface is not an advertised use for Wipe New® and is done so at the vehicle owner’s sole risk. Wipe New®’s Protection Guarantee does not extend to the use of Wipe New® on painted surfaces.
