I detail as a side gig. Ive been doing it a long long time. So, I do know what I'm talking about.
Lets look at the facts on top coat.
1. They market it as a coating. Its not.
2. It says polish on the bottle. So its a AIO
3. So, the maker of this stuff doesn't even know what to call it.
4. Nobody that does detailing for a profit uses this. Check the boards and the reviews on them.
My post might have seemed abrasive. Well this has been discussed before on this forum and others great lengths. Ive gotten a lot of good help on this forum and I try to "Give back" when I can. This is one area I know very well and get paid to do it. I don't like to see people getting "Taken", so I speak up.
When I read about topcoat and lemon pledge I cringe. PLEASE PLEASE leave the house hold cleaners and furniture polish in the house. Use them on what they were designed to be used on.
If you had your car detailed and you come to pick it up and you see a guy spraying lemon pledge on it, what would you do?
Last week I spent 17 hrs doing a Audi A6S. Paint correction and paint coating. Pretty sure if the owner seen me spraying lemon pledge on his $80,000 car he would have been pissed. I know I would have been.
There are a lot of great products out there for the guy doing it himself, and I haven't mentioned any of them. If that stuff works for you keep using it. But for the guy reading this and all of the other marketing hype for it, look around before you buy anything. Read reviews, talk to people that detail all the time and get their point of view of products.
