The BEST car polish / wax - Zaino

My last few cars have been on the 'high-end' side, so I've always tried to keep them looking as nice as possible. I've gone through half-a-dozen or more waxes and polishes until i found, what is IMHO the best one out there - "Zaino" ..

I found Zaino (www.zainostore.com) after reading about it on several "show car" forums. The people that use it (and the manufacturer) claim it gives the "wettest" and "deepest" shine, and most people that have tried it swear by it.

Zaino isnt a "wax", it's some kind of polymer concoction that leaves no powder residue like most waxes, goes on easy, and comes off even easier - BUT, it does require "layering", so total application time can spread over a day.. or two..

I first started using it about 6 years ago, and once I tried it, i never went back to old-fashioned waxes. Zaino did give the deepest and 'wettest' look and smoother feel than anything else i'd ever used. It also beaded water better and lasted longer.

I know that most people are almost religious about their car-care products, especially the wax/polish that they use - so i'm curious if anyone else uses or has tried Zaino, or if you have another product that you swear by..

PS - if you have tried the Zaino "system" you know it can be a bit confusing (which parts to use in what order, waiting between applications, etc).. I've been using it a long time so if you have questions you can post them here and i'll try to answer them.

I think so. I've never seen it in any stores. They are a small operation.

Re: The BEST car polish / wax - Zaino

This is how the Zaino website recommends applying the Zaino polish:
Squirt a dime size dab of Zaino polish on your applicator and rub it into your paint using circular hand motions. Then, go over the same area using a straight back and forth motion on top panels and an up and down motion on side panels. Allow the polish to haze over (20 minutes is sufficient).

Zaino recommends that if you have used other waxes/polishes in the past, you should thoroughly was the car with a 'grease cutting' detergent such as Dawn Dishwashing Liquid before applying your Zaino.

Re: The BEST car polish / wax - Zaino

you should apply your Zaino in straight motions, all in the same direction. no pressure is necessary.

Re: The BEST car polish / wax - Zaino

ive never tried zaino, always used maguires or armor all. once my cousin, who had a job as washing and cleaning helicoptors, let me try out this polish he used on the helicoptors. it was pretty good.

Re: The BEST car polish / wax - Zaino

The reason that the Zaino guy recommends Dawn is because it "cuts grease", which is basically what 'regular' car wax is - and you want as much of that old wax off the paint before using Zaino. So if you can't find Dawn, any detergent that is "tough on grease" should do just as good. It's not required that you use Dawn - just dont wax your car for a few weeks before applying Zaino and/or leave it out in the sun and any of your old wax will be evaporated..

Re: Zaino wax polish

make sure you read through all the instructions. Because Zaino is not a 'wax' and has no carnuba, you can put on as many coats per day as you have time for. Just make sure you let it 'cure' properly as you apply each coat.

Zaino vs Zymol

A lot of people swear by Zymol - It think they assume that at $150/jar it MUST be better (but they're wrong).. but dont get me wrong, Zaino isnt cheap either.

Here is link to a comparison of Zaino and Zymol performed by a Zymol zealot:

Re: Zaino vs Zymol

Thank you for taking the time for the test. I was hesitant about purchasing the Zaino in kit form as it is pricey, but I have a new car and want to keep it in good shape. I think I'll invest in the Zaino
