            There were some tough dirt and grime on areas of my car which were difficult to remove with just soap and water. This product once applied removed the dirt and grime with ease.

              Comments about Turtlewax Rubbing Compound (10.5 oz.):

              This product is only the first step in achieving a glossy finish when trying to restore something after wetsanding. All this does is smooth the surface and preps it for polishing. It does not leave a glossy finish, so I don't know how the guy before me managed to use this to restore headlights.

              After using this it should really be followed directly by Turtle Wax Polishing Compound to get a serious glossy, mirror-like finish.

                  Today, 10/22/2011 I experienced a hit and run. The person hit the back of my car while I was in the store. I went right away to advance auto parts to look around for some "scratch remover" let me just say if I could post my before and after the pictures you would know how serious I am. I highly recommend this substance. However, whomever hit my car, knocked some part off, you have to make sure you scrub around that part while using this product. K thanks!

                      I was going to buy the 25dollar headlight lens repair kit for my lights being all oxidized, but a reviewer for that recommended using this as another option. It worked very good, i am very satisfied and it was only [$]!!!

                          You used either a red rag, or your applicator pad or rubbing compound has been used on a red car before you used it. Purchase a new canister of compound, new applicator pad, and new white rags to rub it off with and repear your application.
