    ok so i washed my truck today with turtle wax car wash concentrate. bought a ton of microfiber towels,wheel cleaner, tire shine, invisible glass. i was pumped. i start to dry my truck off and its leaving white streaks all over my truck. i try washing it off multiple times. same results. then i read the back of the container and it says do not use if vehicle is hot to touch. wtf. its always hot in ga unless i wake up at 6 am. which i may do if this is why its leaving streaks. so is it leaving white streaks because it was too hot? will this damage my clearcoat/paint? is there a better brand that will not do this?

    thanks,

    It's never easy to wash a truck in direct sunlight. Park it beside your garage or house and wait until the sun starts to go down about 4 or 5 pm.

    yeah don't wash a car in direct sunlight i do it, but you will have better results in shade or the evening.

    Re: turtle wax ice car wash concentrate *white streaks*

    Ive had that in the past washing a black car. there is a solution if you want to get nuts about it. buy a PH balanced car wash, I use Zymol but there are several others, my friend originally found this out when she had to find a wash that didnt strip the wax off her car. She uses something from a company called Dodo Juice
