According to the car manual of my now five month old Camry, it is time to give the car a nice “6 month” wax of the exterior. Besides, winter is coming and I suspect sooner than usual given weather patterns this year.
Problem is, I have significant arthritis and it is downright painful to apply wax that requires lots of hard rubbing. So, sadly, I rather neglected good wax jobs on my last car and settled for the silly version at the local car wash. But I want to keep the new car in great shape for the long haul, which means a wax job with attention to detail in all the nooks and crannies, such as the inside of the lower part of the doors and the door sills, as far underneath as I can reach, etc. Note, I live where lots of salt gets used on the roads most winters. So I always make a point of going through car washes with under carriage wash (such as it minimally is) after every snow/ice event as soon as the worst of the salt has been cleared and/or rained away to minimize salt corrosion of the underside of the car.
So, plan is to give the car a very detailed wash job late one day, let it thoroughly dry overnight, and then tackle waxing the next day. Painful, but doable with some cheerful determination.
I need suggestions for a good quality car wax that is about as easy to apply properly as possible, preferably one that I can do in small area stages so if I need to take a break for a few hours or even until the next day and then come back to finish the job it won’t be a problem.
Thank you all.
