Grit Guard is great way to further minimize the possibility of adding fine swirls and scratches to the clear coat while washing. The majority of swirls and fine scratches come from the washing so it's very important to minimize risks whenever possible. When you wash your vehicle it's very important that the contaminates in your mitt are released when you put your mitt in the rinsing bucket. Place the Grit Guard in the bottom of your bucket and wipe your mitt on it to help release contaminates lodged. This helps keep the mitt or sponge clean and safe while washing. By getting rid of these contaminates you are much less likely to have abrasive contaminates lodged in your mitt that could potentially add fine scratches to the clear coat.

The Optimum Opti-Bond Tire Gel is a thick tire dressing that leaves an unbelievably rich and glossy shine on your tires. Just apply one coating of this gel and your tires will instantly have that extra deep "wet" look. This water based formula uses no VOC's or harmful solvents so it is totally safe your tires and the environment. Since this is a water based formula it will actually be absorbed in to the rubber. This has two primary benefits, one is that it nourishes the rubber keeping it healthy and secondly it will last extra long. Silicone based dressings just sit on the surface, which makes them prone to "sling" on to the paint and they also can brown tires. The Opti-Bond Tire Gel is one of the premium tire gels ever made and it will be sure to please every detailer who likes that extra glossy shine on your tires.

Drying off your vehicle can be a tedious task but doing it right makes all the other steps go smoother. It is important to remove all the water off your vehicle so there is no streaking or water marks. The DI Microfiber Waffle Weave Drying Towel is designed to quickly remove large amounts of water from open surfaces and joints. The waffle weave design allows this towel to absorb so much water that the towel can be up to ten times heavier when wet. Even when this towel is damp or wet you can continue to use it as it will keep soaking up more and more water. Just touch the towel to a joint or crevice and watch as it pulls away the water with ease. Use it across the entire exterior to ensure it is completely dry. Fine scratches can be added during the drying process with improper drying materials (old shirts, dirty towels, etc.). This towel won't scratch the surface because it uses extra soft microfiber threads, no tags and silk edges for maximum safety.

Optimum Gloss-Coat is an advanced polymer system that forms a clear coat like layer of protection to your paint! Formulated by the great Dr. G, Gloss-Coat is similar to the clear coat that already exists on your vehicle. The difference is, this coating forms a shell of protection that is glossier, slicker, and less prone to wash-induced swirl marks and marring. Gloss-Coat adds an amazing level of gloss and depth to the paint that will have rain forming tight little beads and rolling off the surface! Once the surface is protected with Gloss-Coat it will be considerably easier to clean and maintain compared to conventional waxes and sealants. Gloss-Coat is not recommended for application on glass, however it works great on your paint, wheels, plastic trim, bumpers, aluminum and chrome. For application tips take a look at the complete breakdown below. Gloss-Coat is all you need to protect your paint but if you like more shine and protection feel free to top it with your favorite sealant and/or wax! If you are looking for a great protective coating for your car the Optimum Gloss-Coat is a great choice!

Washing your vehicle is where most swirls are added to the paint so we encourage you to realize how important this step is in your detailing process. Using quality products is one of the best ways to prevent the addition of new swirls and micro-scratches. The brand new Lake Country Blue Grout Sponge is a high quality ultra soft foam sponge that is a perfect tool for washing. The blue foam is extremely soft and plush which allows it to hold large amounts of suds and safely glide across the paint, without the fear of micro-marring the paint. The two large surfaces of the sponge have a grid like design to them. This design helps channel dirt and contaminants into the grooves and not in between the sponge and your paint. This greatly reduces the risk of grinding contaminants in to the paint and it makes washing significantly safer. 

The NanoSkin AutoScrub Wash Mitt can replace the need for a clay bar by safely and easily removing surface contamination! This process is much faster than a traditional clay bar and you can get the same great clean surface upon completion. This microfiber mitt has a special rubber polymer coating on one side that actually loosens and removes particles. This advanced rubber polymer technology will help you remove tree sap, residue from water marks, rail dust, road grime and other extra stubborn surface contaminants with ease. If your vehicle is in great condition you can skip the first wash with your traditional wash mitt and go right to the AutoScrub Wash Mitt. When using the AutoScrub Wash Mitt you will be amazed at how quickly the advanced rubber polymers safely separate and remove contaminants bonded to the exterior. This means your paint will be truly clean and you can effectively apply a polish, glaze, sealant or wax afterward.
