In the detailing world, products come and go. Often times at a rapid pace, with some of them staying for decades and others quickly forgotten. 2019 brought on some great products and here are my top favorites in the following categories.
This award is for the product or tool that surprised me the most. The one that exceeded expectations and really made me say wow.
WINNER – Colourlock Leather Protector
I first had a chance to use it at SEMA as Ram Iyer gave me the rundown on it and was surprised at the results. Applying it on leather and just leaving it to dry seemed bonkers to me, but it leaves no streaks, gloss and protects very well.
Best Bang for the Buck
This is for the product/tool that is the best value for the price.
WINNER – CarPro Pearl
This is one of the easiest and longest-lasting dressings I’ve used. What impressed me the most is how far one small bottle can go, the ability to mix to your liking also gives value.
This is for the best product/tool that was new to the site in 2019
WINNER – Colourlock
I have to give it to the entire Colourlock brand on the quality and performance of their products. Leather cleaning and care is something I constantly get asked about by clients, it’s my recommended brand for leather right now.
This is for the product/tool that can be used for multiple use cases.
WINNER – Sonax Glass Cleaner
Sonax Glass Cleaner can be used as a no-rinse wash, all-purpose cleaner and works great for wet-sanding applications, oh yeah and glass surfaces. Having worked with Sonax over the years, it amazing how versatile this “glass cleaner” actually is.
This is the best product/tool for someone starting out with detailing.
WINNER – 22ple Insanity
For those starting into coatings, 22ple Insanity gives all of the bells and whistles of a professional coating without the installation drama. Super easy to use and instant gratification!
This is the best product/tool for a professional to add to their arsenal.
WINNER – Sonax Wheel Cleaner Plus
Just when I thought the best couldn’t be better, it did with Wheel Cleaner Plus. I am not a fan of the wheel cleaning process and Sonax Wheel Cleaner Plus saves me time. And as professionals, we all know that time is money.
These are my award winners for 2019 and like most of you, I am always in the pursuit of products that offer high performance, easy to use and value. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!
