Durability & Protection
To get the most out of this wax in terms of protection, you’ll have to add more layers to it, maybe around 2 or 3 layers will do. Make sure to let it properly “cure” before adding another layer and to prep the surface well. Learn more about polishing by reading this article.
In terms of how long this wax will last varies, according one review it can last around 2 to 3 months, with carnauba waxes it can vary depending on the weather conditions and the prep work done. Regardless of the length of protection, one thing carnauba does well is protect paint from harmful UV rays that can wreck havoc over time.
Ease of Application
Product application is simple, using a damp microfiber or applicator pad, pour in a dime sized amount then spread thinly on a 2 x 2 foot surface. Most customers who used this agree that product application is easy to apply and remove.
Ease of Removal
Another great feature of the Mothers 05750 is how quickly it dries up right after application, you don’t need to wait 20 mins or so as required by other products before removing it. It is essentially a wax on and wax off product, do one section at a time.
Reviews are mixed in terms of the ease of removal, some complained it being difficult to buff, others raved about how easy it is. It is best to follow instructions and not let it sit for a long time before taking it off.
This is were the Mothers 05750 shines so to speak, because of it’s brazilian carnauba mixture, it deepens and adds excellent gloss to darker colored paint like black, blue or red. Several mentioned that they’ve got complements on how good their vehicles looked despite being a few years old, others used the 05750 to wax their classic 30 plus year old vehicles.
Pro & Cons
Since this wax is made of pure Brazilian carnauba the number one compliment that it got was the excellent gloss and shine it gave their vehicles, especially owners of darker colored cars. Another benefit of carnauba is it’s swirl filling capabilities, meaning it hides swirls quite well, leaving a mirror-like finish.
This stuff is pretty easy to use as well, just remember to use a damp applicator. You don’t have to wait long before you can remove this product. For example, one of the users who purchased the Mother 05750 product stated that before he was done spreading the wax on one of the car’s panels, it was already dry enough to commence the buffing.
If there is a downside to natural wax like canauba, it would be durability and it is no different with the Mothers 0570. To my surprise, there is one user who claimed it lasted him a few months but that could be due to the good weather conditions in his location and good prep work prior to wax application.
Amazon customers give this an excellent rating primarily because of it give their vehicles that reflective carnauba shine that car enthusiasts love. The reviews however, are not 100% positive, there were folks who weren’t satisfied with it’s performance and yet gave it a 4 star rating, that left me a bit stumped.

This would be a great product for you if…
You own a dark colored vehicle – particularly blue, red or black, this will definitely make this color pop and stand out, and since this is a pure carnauba wax, you will be able to layer this and get add even more depth to your paint. Remember that this wax isn’t meant to last very long time, in humid weather conditions expect this to last just a few weeks, in less humid areas, it’ll last at least a month or two.
Professional detailers would combine this with a sealant to get the best of both worlds – longevity and gloss, just make sure that you allow enough time for the sealant to “cure” before applying this wax.
