Product Review: Dodo Juice Diamond White Hard Waxby Zach McGovern
It’s not too often that I get to use a wax on a vehicle these days, but when I was asked to give my thoughts on this Dodo Diamond White Wax I was more than happy to give it a try.
Dodo Juice Diamond White (aka Dodo White) is a hard wax designed to really make lighter colored paint stand out and be envied by darker colors. The special blend of unique natural ingredients (micronised white carnauba wax, white beeswax, coconut oil, almond oil) makes this colored charged wax extremely eye catching on light colors. After just one coat you’ll quickly notice that any light colored paint, like white, silver, tan, etc., have never looked better. The hard wax formula makes it easy to apply thin and even coats with an applicator pad. The formula cures very quickly and will protect the paint extremely well. If you have a light colored paint the Dodo Juice Diamond White is a must have for best results.
In the current market, waxes are becoming less popular as the more durable sealants and coatings continue to evolve, however there is just something about hand waxing a car that is quite relaxing to me… surely many of you can relate. With that being said, I was really looking forward to using this wax on some beautiful pearl white paint to see what it could do.
I applied a thin layer in straight line motions using the Lake Country Red Foam Applicator Pad. The wax spread very easily, and was very easy to load up the pad with just a few swipes. It took no time at all to cover this mid-sized sedan.
The wax was allowed to dry to a haze, and was then easily wiped away with a plush microfiber towel revealing this perfectly polished pearl paint.
As expected, the fresh coat of wax easily repelled water. The beads were tight and very round… quite impressive.
Very little product was used to cover this mid-sized sedan. This 250mL pot will last for a very long time at this rate.
This wax was a real pleasure to use. It spread easily, smelled excellent, and produced a very slick surface that had a great shine. I really enjoyed the opportunity to wax a vehicle again, and would recommend this to anyone with lighter colored vehicles who still enjoy using a premium carnauba wax on their ride!
Looks great. Two questions:In regards to the applicator pad, is this the best one you would recommend for Dodo Supernatural applications? I tried DoDo’s Finger Mitt Applicators(100ppi, costs a lot) and while they were very soft, I found them hard to use with my smaller fingers. Looking for the best, softest applicator so I do no damage from the applicator.
Second, my wife has new white Cherokee. Its a non-metallic, almost polar white. This this stuff will shine it up well?
Hi Brian – I really like either the red foam applicator mentioned in this article, or the P21S Wax Applicators (link below). The P21S applicators are easier for me since they have a harder foam backing to hold on to, though they are more expensive than the red foam.
Yes, this wax would do great on your white Cherokee. Keep in mind, a nicely polished vehicle will produce the greatest shine, so make sure the vehicle is free of swirls and other defects before applying your preferred sealant or wax.
Thanks Zach. Very nostalgic and I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds waxing a car “relaxing.” I had used DoDo Juices Hard Candy wax and really liked it.
For a couple of years now, I’ve been in the practice of annually using Klasse A-I-O and then applying Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze and topping off with a high quality carnauba wax for a real glossy “Pop” shine. Currently I use P21S and renew the wax top coat every couple of months between the annual Klasse treatment. Would you recommend this regimen? I’m almost out of the P21S… Does this this Dodo wax produce that “Pop”?
Hey Rob, sounds like you’ve got a good plan. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have that eye for distinguishing minor details between LSPs. I really enjoyed using this wax, and it made the pearl white Acura that I was working on look great.
Great review! Waxing is relaxing indeed.
Hi Zach, Great review on a wax geared towards light colored vehicles. What does the ”hard’ wax mean? What sealant would you recommend for using under this wax?
Hey Bruce – hard wax simply means that this wax is a harder solid, unlike some waxes that are more soft/pasty. I personally prefer these harder waxes. You can use any sealant you’d like beneath this wax, but my personal favorite has got to be the tried and true blackfire wet diamond. You may also consider using another product specifically formulated for lighter colors like Chemical Guys White Light.
I have a maroon and burgundy 1987 El Camino SS with the Choo Choo package. I use Dodo Juice Purple Haze after putting on Meguiar’s #7 Show Car Glaze. Dodo Juice produces the best shine and protectant ever!!! Looks like a new paint job.
