Fast and Easy Automotive Cleaning and Protection With Armor All

Posted in Product Reviews on October 24, 2013

I hate washing my 4x4s, so I'm always looking for products that speed up the cleaning process or can extend the periods between washes. If the dirt don't stick, I can simply hose the truck off, or better yet let the rain do the work. Anyway, I'm always amazed by what can be accomplished with chemicals. Today, the Armor All people stopped by the shop to show me a few new products, and I took note.

The Armor All Wheel Protectant caught my eye because it actually kept brake dust from sticking to the wheels. Heck, when applied properly it even kept honey from sticking!

Next up was the Armor All Outlast Trim & Plastic Restorer. This stuff made even chalky plastic Jeep fender flares look new again. It did wonders for a dirty, aged soft top too.

Last up was the Armor All Outlast Tire Glaze. Now this isn't the same messy stuff that flings off on your freshly washed paint. This stuff dries, almost like a clearcoat paint for your tires, only it won't chip or peel like paint. That's right, it won't attract dirt! It's good for up to 100 washes too. Not only all that, it has real UV protection and helps keep tires from dry-rotting. Now, I'm not a huge fan of super-glazed tires on my 4x4 or anything, but I did like the idea of extending the life of my languishing trailer and RV tires with just a quick spritz.

Check out ( or head down to the local parts store and check this stuff out, I think you'll be just as impressed as I am.
