    Problem w/ Meguiar's Quick Detail Spray

    I have a JBP 04 WRX and I use the Meguiar's Quick Detail Spray in between washes and recently while using the spray I had a problem with film appearing on the car making it look dull.
    When using the detail spray I wipe it on and wipe it off and the car looks amzing, then after lettin the car sit for about 5-10mins I start noticing haze on my car, mostly on the hood and trunk lid including the spoiler...I can run my finger over the film and it comes off but eventually it reappears and no matter how many times I wipe the film off it always comes back...Has anyone else experienced this problem and do you have any idea what may be causing this problem and how to fix it?

    I don't know what that film is either, and honestly I think that spray is a bunch of bull5hit because I've used it and it looks gross on my car, just streaky and weird even when I follow the directions.

    I say screw it, find something else because that stuff is such a hassle.

    I had the same problem with this stuff. I have a WRB WRX. I stopped using it cause it is a hassle and makes more work when it starts to haze.

    I was told the car should be cooled down and the spray should be used in the shade.

    If you re-use cotton towels that have been washed they should have no soap residue. (In other words don't use too much laundry soap)
    Never use fabric softener or dryer sheets!
    The Meguiars Quick detail spray as sell as a few other similar products has a tendency to loosen any soap or fabric softener residue.
    Even brand spankin new cotton towels has some sort or resisue on them.
    I wash my new towels in very hot water first.

    I use the Pro Honda spray cleaner polish for quick detailing.

    The best detail glosser I have ever used is Zaino Z6. Smells great and leaves an awesome wet look with no haze. It also is great in repelling dust and/or cleaning small smudges of dirt here and there.
