    Looking for a quality wax manufactured in house by a reputable, family owned business? Then you need Jax Wax (@JaxWaxCarCare)! And according to Dan, it’s so simple to use that a chicken could do it (though we want to know why a chicken would be waxing a car)!

    Jared Minor from Jax Wax (@JaxWaxCarCare) gives us a crash course on how to use some of their products, reminding Dan of the process his father used to wax cars. This leads to the gang laughing about old time car care methods and quick “fixes.”

    Most people (including Dan) feel more comfortable applying layer after layer of wax, but Jared (@JaxWaxCarCare) says that is not always what’s best. According to him, a couple of thin coats is better than one thick one. Take a listen for more advice!
