So what does it replace?
I know a lot of people will be wondering this one. It’s not there to replace anything from our current detailing system, especially the awesome Big Green Sucker and Boss Gloss combination for drying. It’s a totally new alternative made to suit super fussy enthusiasts (people like me), who want a perfect, flawless finish. It will be great for time poor people who want to dry, add shine and protect their car in one go.
We find it’s quick to use once you master the technique, but it’s not as fast to use as The Big Green Sucker and Boss Gloss combination, which can be done crazy fast (just under 2 mins is our record for drying a car here currently). So those times when you’re in a hurry to dry your car, The Big Green Sucker might be the better option.
We find that After Glow’s shine and protection will save you extra time if you’re one to use Fully Slick as a final step after your washing. On that topic, you can still use our Fully Slick, Boss Gloss or Lazy Wax on top of After Glow if you wish, just for an extra and different layer of protection.
As we touched on earlier in this article, The Big Green Sucker sadly wasn't best suited for After Glow. Because it's so absorbent, the product was disappearing into the cloth and wasn't giving us the ease of use, level of shine or protection that the Big Softie cloth was. The Big Softie cloth is the perfect combination of absorbency, plushness and GSM. A low enough pile on one side, so that the product can spread onto the paint beautifully, but still be absorbent enough to soak up and retain a good amount of water before you need to wring the cloth out. The low pile side is also perfect for the dry cloth removal as well, so all round this cloth is the best we found for using with After Glow.
