Best Adam’s Polishes Products for Complete Car Care

No matter what you drive, it’s going to get dirty. Whether it’s dust settling on it in the garage, water spots from a mid-afternoon rain, or a complete mud bath from backcountry driving, getting it clean again is more than just a matter of pride. It’s proper car care that will keep deterioration and corrosion at bay. For that, you need auto detailing supplies made by someone you trust: Adam’s Polishes.

For more than 20 years, this American-based business has sold premium polishes, detailing supplies, and car care tools and equipment, and AutoZone proudly carries many of them. Here are five of the best Adam’s Polishes products and what makes them special.

Adam’s Polishes Car Wash Shampoo

Coming in at just 16 ounces, the Car Wash Shampoo from Adam’s Polishes seems a bit deceiving, value-wise. But locked inside the bottle is a concentrated detergent that will leave your car’s paint and glass squeaky clean. 

Adam’s Polishes Car Wash Shampoo puts a thick layer of billowing suds in your wash bucket whether you use cold or hot water. And the water you use doesn’t have to be filtered or soft water since this shampoo won’t leave water spots. It’s safe on your paint job with a pH-neutral formulation and won’t bake onto your paint as other soaps do. And as tempting as it might be with its Wildberry aroma ad rich blue color, it’s best not to sample the flavor.

Adam’s Polishes Car Wash Shampoo starts at just under $10.

Adam’s Polishes Graphene Liquid Wax

Your average carnauba-based car wax needs to be re-applied every few months, but there’s something much better available from Adam’s Polishes. Graphene Liquid Wax combines the simplicity of car waxing with the durability of graphene ceramic coating to protect your paint job. 

Applied sparingly with an applicator pad or with a foam pad on a power polisher, Adam’s Polishes Graphene Liquid Wax takes only 10 to 20 minutes to apply to your whole vehicle. The surface needs to be spotless before use for the best results, and it only takes about one to three minutes for flash time. Once it hazes over, it’s ready to be removed with a microfiber cloth.

Graphene Liquid Wax from Adam’s Polishes is available exclusively at AutoZone, and it’s under $30 for a bottle that lasts several applications.

Adam’s Polishes Graphene Detailing Spray

So you’ve waxed your car with premium products from Adam’s Polishes. Now how do you keep it looking great between applications? Detailing spray does the trick with professional-style results in seconds. Graphene Detail Spray contains graphene oxide, the same compound you’ll find in Graphene waxes and polishes, and it’s perfect for the in-between detailing sessions.

It isn’t a waterless wash, and it should always be applied to a clean paint surface. Spray directly onto the surface or a microfiber cloth, then wipe it off. Simple as that. It leaves behind a shiny, slick finish that allows water to bead off and highlights your paint color. Even if you haven’t waxed your car, this detailing spray can help protect on its own, and streak-free too. 

It’s a bargain at AutoZone at just $12.99. 

Adam’s Polishes Wheel and Tire Cleaner

You might have your paint taken care of, but what about your wheels and tires? Caked-on brake dust and road grime seriously detracts from your vehicle’s overall appearance, and left unaddressed, it can corrode the surface permanently. Bust up that grungy look with Adam’s Polishes Wheel and Tire Cleaner. It’s safe on all wheel finishes, whether powder coated, painted, clear coated, chrome, or aluminum. Once you spray it on the wheels, you’ll see the grime literally melt away with the foaming action.

It’s also safe on tires. Applying Adam’s Polishes Wheel and Tire Cleaner to aging rubber sidewalls strips away that brown tire ‘bloom’ and stops oxidation in its tracks. It’s exactly what your tires need as a foundation for a top-notch detailing job. And the citrus scent is quite pleasant too.

You’ll find this rim and tire cleaner at AutoZone for $12.99 for a 16-ounce spray bottle.

Adam’s Polishes Tire Shine 

And once your tires are squeaky clean, bring out the deepest black possible with Adam’s Polishes Tire Shine. Unlike other tire shines that strip the rubber with harsh chemicals and gather dust and dirt, Adam’s Polishes Tire Shine is silicone-based and infused with silica. It doesn’t stay oily, but rather it dries fully to the touch in just a few minutes while keeping the black, wet look. And smelling like Banana Taffy, you’ll need to resist your urge for a taste. 

Buy your Adam’s Polishes products from AutoZone. With exclusive car care products and pricing that can’t be beaten, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for to detail your vehicle top to bottom.
