The Turtle Wax brand has been around since the 1940's, and they claim to
be "the number one selling brand of car care products in the world with
sales in 90 countries."
Apparently, Turtle Wax ICE was designed to be a high-tech polish that
would spice up the Turtle Wax product line, which was getting a bit long in
The concept is good: a clear liquid polish that leaves no white powdery
residue. Perfect for motorcycles, right?
The polish is easy to apply, and a little goes a long, long way.
It's cool to be able to apply a clear liquid to motorcycle paint (it can
also be used on plastic and rubber trim) and not have to worry about that
icky white powder showing in all those hard-to-reach spots.
But the problem is that Turtle Wax ICE doesn't really seem to us to do
leave much of a finish. Sure, the paint looks shiny -- but it would
look the same with just about any polish right after it was applied and
buffed on a clean surface.
Turtle Wax ICE doesn't really seem to leave any type of noticeable
coating on the paint -- it doesn't have that smooth "waxy" feeling that you
get after a coat of good wax or polish. And it also doesn't seem to
leave much of a long-lasting protective finish, either. In fact, it
just doesn't seem to do much at all, we don't notice a difference between a
freshly washed painted surface and the same surface post-treatment with
Turtle Wax ICE.
We're not impressed with Turtle Wax ICE; in our opinion, it certainly
doesn't come close to some of the best motorcycle waxes or polishes that
we've tried and our feeling is that there are even some "quick" spray and
shine polishes that are better. It's too bad, because the concept of
having a clear liquid that leaves no residue is sound, but in practice, the
product just doesn't impress.
