I was admiring this product during my infomercial insomnia last night, until I read this...
Warning! Do Not Use On Oxidized Fiberglass!, March 4, 2007
By MichaelJohn (Upstate New York) - See all my reviews
Today I washed and waxed my 1995 Winnebago Class C motorhome, and tried "Turtle Wax Ice" for the first time.
After reading so many glowing reviews for this product, I was excited to see what it could do for my 12 year old RV. I was looking for a product that would be very easy to use, but also give a long lasting and durable shine.
I started by applying "Ice" to the front end of my motorhome which is a Ford E-350 Van. "Ice" has the consistency of baby oil and is easier to apply than any liquid wax I've ever tried. It's nice that it doesn't leave a white residue on rubber and plastic parts, but the overall shine was no better than many other waxes and polishes on the market. When the "Ice" dried, it left a hard to see haze, especially on my white vehicle. I found it very easy to miss many spots as I was buffing it out.
The real trouble with this product began when I applied it to the FIBERGLASS on my RV. The fiberglass was clean, but oxidized, so I buffed the entire rig with polishing compound first. Then I washed and dried the entire fiberglass body.
I applied a thin coating "ice" to one side of the motorhome and then waited five or so minutes for it to dry properly. I attempted to remove the dried polish with the micro-fiber towel that comes with the product, but I quickly realized the stuff was not coming off very easily.
In my frustration, I pulled out my random orbiting power buffer, and I still couldn't get the dried "Ice" off the fiberglass! It looked as if I had applied the "Ice" and then forgot to remove it. Over and over I used the buffer, but it didn't look any better. I then tried to apply another thin coat of "ice" to a small area to see if I could somehow blend in the two coats, but that didn't work either. I was getting upset to say the least, and now my RV looked worse than before I started!
With nothing to lose, I applied another brand of liquid car wax to the entire side that had the "Ice" on it, and hoped for the best. To my great relief, this wax buffed out to a beautiful, streak free shine and made the fiberglass look like new again.
"Ice" may be good for newer cars with clearcoat finishes, but stay away, far away, from this product if you are looking for a polish that will work on older fiberglass RV's and boats. Getting this stuff off older fiberglass was all but impossible!
That's my two cents!
