[LISTEN] The difference between polishing and waxing your car

As a car owner, you may start to notice some defects on your car and want to fix them as soon as you can.

Polish and wax are some of the solutions that help maintain the body of your vehicle.

Sharing his insights on the difference between the two, Exklusiv Autohaus owner Jignesh (Jiggy) Thakor says polish is more of a cleaning solution.

They are there to remove oxidation, any contaminants that could have bonded to the paint work and have a sole purpose of cleaning and not protection - that is a polish. So a polish has to take place in order for you to wax.

Waxing a car has more of an ability to add shine and protection. Waxes are for protection, polishes are for cleaning. So once you have cleaned the paint and decontaminated it, then you can use wax on the paint to then protect it going forward.
