I gave the Accord a quick (3 hour) clean this morning, and decided to try a couple of products that have been sitting on my shelf for years, untouched, unloved, and forgotten. I guess a lot of us have products like this, discarded as we move onto something newer and "better." My mission over the next few months is going to be to use some of these again, to see which deserve to keep their place on the shelf, and which deserve to find a new place - in landfill First, Meguiars NXT Tech wax - which is about ten years old, and hasn't been used for 6 or 7 years - think I last used it on my 2005 Renault Scenic. First surprise, the product was still fine and useable. Second surprise, I'd forgotten how nice it smells... Quick and easy to use, the result is pretty good - if a touch superficial - by which I mean it has given a good shine but with little depth, and virtually no sign of any flake in my metallic silver paintwork. All in all, a nice surprise, and a product which a) stays and b) deserves to be used again (and finally used up). Second, Turtle Wax "Extreme" wax for wheels. This one must be 15 years old, and hasn't been used for (probably) 13 years!! It has given an acceptable finish on my Sigma alloys, and (as with the Megs Tech wax) was very quick and easy to apply/remove. It too doesn't seem to have suffered from lack of use, sitting on a shelf in my garage... The test with this one with be longevity and protection, so I'll use it again over the next few washes and see how it gets on. I'd say it's worth trying out this sort of product before buying (yet more) new ones - the worst that can happen is it will remind you why you stopped using it in the first place, and prompt you to finally get rid!!
