Quick detailers are a great option to have an immediate show room shine right after washing the car. Quick detailing sprays can be used to bridge the gap between applications of longer lasting protection products, as well as increasing the level of gloss on the paint work. Below, you’ll find my favourite quick detailer sprays.

Autoglym Rapid Detailer

Rapid Detailer is a multi function quick detailer. As with the others on this list, it can add a lot of gloss to the paint work of your car in between washes, making it look really great. In addition to this, it is also a rather excellent clay bar lubricant. When it comes to claying, it’s extremely important that the panel is as slick as possible, and Rapid Detailer fills this criteria.

What I also really like about it is the fact that it can be used to clean glass. For those that don’t have a glass cleaner to hand, this makes it a great way to ensure that your glass looks crystal clear at all times.

It’s really easy to use, it’s a spray on and wipe off deal and it really is a rapid product. I actually really like to use this to clean the underside of the bonnet and I’ve also used it to give the engine bay a quick clean. This is perfect for those that don’t want to introduce water into their engine bay. It is also very effective at removing small bird droppings. In that case, I apply it liberally, let it soften it up (but not dry) and then scoop it up using a plush microfibre cloth.

In terms of protection, it does add a degree of protection to the vehicle and works great as a way to top up existing protection that’s already there.

Gtechniq Auto Quick Detailer

Gtechniq Quick Detailer is a firm favourite of many for a variety of reasons.

First off is the price. For a 500ml bottle, it can normally be found around the £10 mark, and often cheaper during sales periods. What makes this excellent value for money is that very little is needed for the results it brings about.

For many, Gtechniq Quick Detailer is used as a topper for  Gtechniq sealants or ceramic coatings that are already on the car. They complement each other extremely well and brings a real depth to the gloss on the car.

What I really like about it is that it can be used on the paintwork, plastic trim and also the wheels. The application is incredibly straightforward. All you need to do is spray it onto a microfibre cloth, run over the surface with this cloth and then use a dry cloth to remove any residue. You’ll be able to get around the car extremely quickly, and it means that you can help to boost the lifespan of the Gtechniq products on your car.

Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Detailer

Meguiar’s have a few products in the Hybrid Ceramic range. Their ceramic detailer is the easiest one to use out of all of them.

Unlike the spray wax which requires a second rinse of the car (taking up more time), the ceramic detailer is a lot quicker to apply. Once the car has been dried, all it takes is a light misting of the ceramic detailer before buffing it off the panel to apply a layer of high gloss to the paint work. In addition to this, it does add ceramic protection the car as well. This is great to use as a standalone product, or on top of the Meguiar’s spray or paste ceramic wax.

The hydrophobic protection it offers on its own is in the region of 2-3 weeks. It would be nice if it was longer, but since you only need 1 microfibre cloth to get the benefits of Hybrid Ceramic Detailer, it really does make sense for those with not a lot of time but want to make their car look great.
