Everyone likes to drive around in a shiny, clean car but how many of us actually put in the effort to keep our cars nice and shiny? Moreover, waxing can be a tedious process and one which many Malaysians tend to disregard as unnecessary.

A good and regular wax extends you paint job's lifespan by many years and protects your car from scratches and rust. In this article, we’ve listed some of the best budget car wax products in the Malaysian market today.
