    Default Using baby oil on paintwork ???

    Had my haircut today and the talk was about cars.

    My barber stated that he used "baby oil" yes "baby oil" on the car after he washes it and that it gives a perfect gleaming finish and that when it rains the rain beads and runs off.

    Anyone heard of using "baby oil"?
    Anyone tried it?
    Any reason not to use it?

    Was he kidding me?

    Never heard of this before. I wonder if it dries, if it doesn,t then it will collect dust. I have put vegatable oil in the black trim on mine to remove the white polish marks, and found that it collected dust.

    i doubt it will dry correctly so dust will collect, however it will probably work well on rubber trim and tyres

    You can actually use it... Turtle Wax brung out a polish called ice.. and you can use it on everything on the car apart from the glass.. it was great to put on but a pain to get off but left a great shine and the beading was great too...
