armor all

I've been told by more than a few folks NOT to use "armor all" as it attracks dirt.(and other reasons that escape my aging mind) I stay away from it religiously.

Re: armor all

the only place I use Armor all is on the tires.
I dont even bother with it on the interior.
On tires it should be fine.

Re: armor all

They have a new product for wheels "Wheel Protectent". Fairly expensive. BUT absolutely amazing !!! Put it on the Corvette wheels last fall......and they still look factory new. This stuff just does not collect brake dust, or anything else. But warning, our Equinox wheels have many spokes which makes it a tough job to cover all the surfaces.

I remember reading something about if you use armor all the time and then stopped it would cause what ever you used it on to dry out.
Maybe true maybe not, I do know their is a lot of protectants out there that do work a lot better.
At one time armor all was the greatest thing since sliced bread, then again it was the only thing out there.

Re: armor all

I switched to PRO S - 92 PREMO DRESSING much better then armor all. I get it locally from the wholesaler who sells to the car lots and detailers.

Re: armor all

Years ago I used Armor All on the interior. I remember my windows would get a film on them.As a non smoker,I know it wasn't from that so I figured it was some type of off-gassing of chemicals.I stopped using Armor All and problem solved .May be a coincidence !!!

Ummm. I recall the same thing... Many posts lately seem to mention good things about Maguir's as their go-to product line. I've only used their waxes but am now checking out some of their other products.

Re: armor all

Meguiars makes a product called Ultimate Protectant. Name being changed to Ultimate Black strictly for marketing reasons. It is a WATER based product with polymers that make it adhere to vinyl and rubber interior or exterior. Will not streak or run in rain or when washed if properly applied. Big difference between it and most others...it DRYS completely with no oily residue within minutes of application. Makes old faded bumpers and trim look new!

PRO is professional. I'm using their wet look dressing. Check out All Brite car care products. It's the real thing!
