Q: Can I use this product right after washing my vehicle well? Can I use a clean towel to apply it? or it needs something different?

submitted by Camelia - 8 months ago
  • A: Yes, it is used after washing your vehicle. While a towel may work in many situations we recommend application with a foam applicator and removal with a high quality microfiber towel as best practice. We have a video on our Youtube channel titled "How to Compound, Polish, and Wax by Hand" if you want more details. Please also feel free to reach out to our Solutions Hub via the Contact Us page of our website for one on one expert help.

Q: I have a black car and it has a lot of swirl marks and scratches on it that reflect right off the sun will this work to get all of them off?

Great for removing blemishes, scratches, oxidation. Car looked new after using. It is not a protective wax like the Meguiars cleaner wax in red bottle. So I finished with Turtle Wax ice, a spray on wax.

I decided to try this product out of desperation after taking my wrangler off-roading. The garage photo shows just how covered in mud the jeep was, and after it sat overnight in freezing temperatures I was left with the horrendous spots shown (the photo was taken after running it through a car wash three times, using a power washer, and attacking them with every detailer spray known to man). I bought a black&decker random orbit tool and used this product with the wool polishing bonnet. After two passes, the damage was completely gone! It also did an incredible job with paint swirls. I would definitely recommend using a somewhat coarse foam applicator or wool/microfiber on a polisher of some sort to get the best cutting power - didn’t do a whole lot for me when applied by hand. Also worth noting that one should most definitely apply some sort of wax or at least polish afterwards to protect the paint.

Worst I’ve ever purchased. It made my car look worse and it was more difficult to wipe than others I’ve tried. Never again.
1 reply from Meguiar's Car Care Expert team - 3 years ago
We are certainly disappointed to hear about your experience. It is difficult to say without more details but your description could indicate your vehicle is at the point of paint failure not simply oxidation. Unfortunately that would mean that no compound, polish or wax will work to restore it as repainting would be the only option. Again, difficult to know without more details or pictures. Regardless we do appreciate the feedback. If you would like to discuss possible causes or get an expert opinion on the situation please feel free to reach out to our Solutions Hub via our website.

Good Compound for Beginners

This is a good compound for beginners. It will remove some minor scratches and defects. Very safe to use. You don't need to use very much of it. Put a thin layer or it will be hard to get off!!!!

I bought this to try to get some minor clear coat scratches and swirl(black paint) out. It worked great for what I needed but didn't dull the finish to where a buffer was needed to bring it back. I used a small random orbit cordless buffer and that seemed to be just right.

I used this product on my black 2007 Honda S2000 to remove some swirl marks and light scratches. After reviewing the helpful instructional video and carefully following the container instructions I applied the product to the vehicle with absolutely stunning results. Not only were the scratches and swirl marks gone, but the overall paint appearance was significantly improved. I have used Meguiar products for over twenty years and have always been completely satisfied, so I have no problem recommending the Meguiars Ultimate Compound.

Works like a miracle. I used a clean towel and followed the direction. My car is white and there was a dark black mark on the side door and I was sure it wouldn’t go away. It went away super fast and easy! Totally recommend it

product. It is a very mild type of polishing compound. It is important to understand the difference between rubbing compound, polishing compound and finish restorer. They have very different abrasive properties.

Used that product on my 08 sl 55Amg & 98 sl sport MB. My cars came super shine, like a mirror glaze. So if you want a super duper shine go for it.
