    EDIT: Could not get videos to load after troubleshooting. I am providing the two following options:
    1. I took two screen shots from each video I took to help show the results. I apologize in advance as they aren't as crisp as a dedicated still photo.
    2. I have the video posted on my IG page ivtec2008. Not trying to promote by any means, but for those who want to see the video of the product in action it is there.

    Hello Everyone,

    I recently decided to pick up Shine Supplies new waterless wash product, ignition, and I am pretty pleased with my initial testing so far.

    What is "Ignition"?

    Ignition is a silica infused waterless wash that is safe to use on both ceramic and non ceramic treated vehicles. Because it is silica infused it will leave behind a light protectant. There are no advertised figures on longevity, but like most silica infused WW's it will be more short term. In addition to its protectant aspect it will also provide streak free gloss to the applied panels.

    Test Vehicle:

    Our kick to the curb car is a 15 Escape titanium. It had sat outside for about a week, rained lightly 3 times and was driven lightly during this time. There is grime, pollen, dust, bee poop and light water spots on the car. There is no ceramic on this car anymore and the wax that was applied is gone now, don't worry it will get protected again lol.

    Application:

    spray and pray....lol

    In all seriousness though application is your normal waterless wash application. Liberally spray the panel, spritz your towel lightly and making sweeping motions down the panel. With a seperate towel begin to dry.

    First Impressions

    Ever since COVID happened Shine Supply has provided the wrong spray triggers for their applicable 16oz bottles. As you can tell in the photo below the trigger is just long enough to hit the plastic bottle preventing you from fully depressing the trigger. You can still use the provided trigger, but it is an annoyance that I hope gets resolved soon.

    After swapping Ignition into an empty spray bottle I proceed to get into testing. The first thing that became apparent to me was that there was no pulling on my buffing towel, which is certainly a good thing. Everything felt smooth to my hand as I was cleaning the applied panel. While cleaning I did find myself quickly becoming impressed by its power. Looking at the before and after photo the water marks, loose grime and pollen were gone in my initial pass. What was left was a streak free and glossy finish.



    Before: Some loose specs, pollen and water spots.

    After: Smooth to the touch and glossy

    It is worth noting that some panels had bee poop marks, which when it dries in the sun becomes pretty fixed to its position. This was the only grime on the car that I found that was left behind on my initial passes. I was able to spot fix the bee poop by spraying directly onto the spot and a light spritz onto my cleaning towel. From there I gently buffed the area till clean.

    So how does the panel feel once done? Smooth. I have a small amount of Shine Supply Spiked Punch (a silica infused WW that Ignition replaced) and the surface felt noticeably smoother with Ignition. Going beyond how it feels, the car has a nice glossy finish to the naked eye. I don't anticipate the glossy finish to be anything long term, but a few days since cleaning the glossy finish still shows nicely.

    After:

    Once going around the entire car I decided to try my luck with glass, something I have not always had the best of luck with a waterless wash on. I tend to find many waterless washes are difficult to get streak free with a buffing towel, especially in the sun we have out here. I was pleasantly surprised with ignitions performance here. As you can tell in the photos below it took watermarked windows and made them streak free clean.

    Conclusion

    I will continue to evaluate this product, but I think a fun comparison may be in order with my other waterless washes. Either way, I think Shine Supply did a bang up job on Ignition. It has good cleaning power for a waterless wash and leaves a glossy streak free finish. I only have two complaints really with the product. The spray trigger that comes with a 16 oz bottle (if not buying a gallon) and the fact the product is pricey. End of the day, I have zero problems recommending this product to anyone looking for a quality waterless wash.

    Good review. Thanks for the info. I had never heard of that brand previously, but now may need to take a peek at their product line.

    On a side note, I appreciate the use of grammar and punctuation. ha It's refreshing to be able to read through something that lengthy without having to keep backtracking for understanding.

    I wanted to provide a simple update. I got some parts in, testing a DI right now, so i decided to see how Ignition behaved before and after a wash. I used Gtechniq G Wash with a heavy dilution ratio, much heavier than needed.

    Certainly not bad for a waterless wash. Do you intend to test the longevity?

    I will be. I think it would be interesting to see how long it can last while being outdoor kept vehicle. Plus, if I do a waterless wash comparison it would be ideal to have all of this stuff gone anyway lol.

    Thanks for the great review. My G-70 was ceramic coated a bit over 2 years ago and is still smooth as glass and slick, but this product might replace my current detailer spray. This one looks easier to use.
