    Hydrate is our #1 product worldwide and has changed the way you dry your paint. It was designed out of frustration. Why is my paint getting scratched with every wash despite using fresh towels, multiple buckets, and grit guards? Turns out the drying process was causing many of the fine scratches (we call them “love marks”) on your paint because the drying was not lubricated enough with just the rinse water alone. Hydrate is a thick liquid that created a barrier between your microfiber towel (NO SHAMMY’S!) and the surface of your paint, leaving behind a thin layer of protection until your next washing session. Absolutely a MUST have for anyone who cares for their car. Used wet or dry. DO NOT FREEZE

    1. Use on wet or dry paint, after a Foam wash or Frothe hoseless wash.
    2. SHAKE thoroughly and spray onto damp towel or directly on paint (it will be thick and goopy).
    3. Wipe paint in straight lines from top to bottom.
    4. Wring out water (if present) and start process over.
    NOTE: If streaking remains, use less HYDRATE on towel prior to wiping or wipe with a clean, dry microfiber towel.

    Q: Does Hydrate leave behind protection for the paint?

    A: Yes it does. A thin layer of protection as you apply the drying lubricant.

    Q: Why is the Hydrate liquid so thick?

    A: It is a lubricant used between the microfiber towel and paint to minimize the friction and scratching that can occur with water-blades or similar.

    Q: Is Hydrate safe for drying coated vehicles?

    A: Absolutely. You still need to protect the paint and coating with good/safe drying techniques.

    Q: Can I use Hydrate to dry Matte or Vinyl Surfaces?

    A: Yes, this is a great way to add protection to a matte surface.

    Q: Should I only dry with Microfiber towels when using Hydrate?

    A: Yes, Hydrate was designed for microfiber towels.

    This is by far the best post wash formula for keeping streaks off the paint and bringing out an incredible shine. I used Froth hoseless wash out of the pump foamer and then finished off with Hydrate. I may never use water to wash my car again. It looks great and was a lot less time consuming than a full wash/rinse/dry/protect cycle. Excellent product and the results are more than what I expected.

    Haven’t washed any car without it in years !

    Read about it. Bought it. Never used it. Finally used it. Regret not using it sooner.

    It's true. This product leaves my cars looking truly finished. There is something satisfying about spraying a wet car after a wash with this light blue magic fluid and then gently drying the surface with a clean microfiber towel. The smell, the smooth towel wipe, the brilliant finish. Hooked.
