  1. Hi Jeffrey, I certainly understand where you're coming from, but we have over 35 SKU's in just gallon and 5 gallon products alone. Then add in 4oz, 8oz and 16oz bottles and we have over 100 SKU's in just chemicals. Our production line is already full on one side with cases of 8oz, 16oz, and gallon boxes that the shippers pull from, so adding double the products would add confusion there and slow up bottle filling and production schedules as well. One of the main reasons for color and scent of the products is that the overwhelming majority of our customers love that they can identify a specific product by color or scent, quickly pulling it off of a cart or shelf even if the label isn't visible, so it's a convenience factor and more enjoyable detailing experience for most. The majority of R&D costs go into actual chemical testing and results, as we do focus on what matters - excellent results with minimal effort. I have at least a dozen prototype and test bottles of product here that have little or no scent - the smell and color are sometimes decided fairly late in the game of the development process, so please don't think we're sacrificing performance or innovation at the cost of smells and colors I've had my hands and towels turn blue from Revive and Rinseless Wash, pink from Detail Spray, orange from Correcting Polish, yellow from Buttery Wax - you name it...sure it's a little annoying but some soap and detergent usually makes things good as new. If my towels end up with some staining, then I can easily identify which towels I used for what, so I continue using them for that particular product. If the Detail Spray smell is sticking around too much during use, you could try spraying directly into a Borderless Gray Plush Towel and then wiping the surface, to minimize how much is getting onto your clothes and into the air. Again I do apologize for the inconvenience, and I will pass this along, but I can't make any promises at this time that we would be able to fulfill this request.

    Welcome back! If you remember your original screen name, I can look it up for you and we can see if we can reset that password for you if you would still like to use your original account. Let me know by private message if you want me to look into it, thanks!
  3. It's already been mentioned, but some of the chemicals unfortunately cannot be scentless, so the chemists mix in other smells to mask them. We do always try to come up with pleasant smells to work with, but allergies can always be a possibility. I've never had an issue with any of our chemicals, but pollen and fresh cut grass make my allergies go haywire 😵 Warehouse space is also a concern, as Parad0x mentioned - while we did move into a much larger facility a year ago now, it is filling up fast! I will bring this topic up with Kyle for discussion and consideration though!
  4. Hey everyone, we're currently experiencing some issues with our phone system at Headquarters this morning, so if you dial our number you might receive an error message and the call will not go through. We switched over to a new phone system recently and it seems we're still working out a few last bugs with it. We are very sorry for the inconvenience, and we should be back up and running soon! I will update this thread once our phones are live again! In the meantime, you can email us to "orders at adamspolishes dot com" or leave a message on our chat software on the website, and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
  5. Update: Phones are back up and operational as of 10:40AM MST!

  9. I can see if I can snap a picture or two, but I don't want to get anyone's hopes up that this will be an actual product available for purchase.
  10. Several months back I found a nice test product in one of my orders. It was an all black apron made of what feels and looks like Alcantara to me. Very thin and incredibly soft. I'll have to talk to product development to see if it was something they were looking into or not.

    Adam's for sale at AutoZone?

    Shane, I do apologize for the frustrations. I don't have any involvement with our affiliate program or its current state, but I would recommend reaching out to kourtney at adamspolishes dot com if you have any questions in regards to it.

    Adam's for sale at AutoZone?

    As far as I know, we have no involvement with selling our products through Autozone, so this may be an isolated case of one local store in that particular area selling products with a wholesale account from us - if they are in fact selling Adam's products...you never know if a statement made on social media is valid and verified, or that person may have confused our products for a different brand and so on, there are a lot of variables at play. We will look into it and I'll let everyone know as soon as I find out more information.
  16. Thank you Wolf-man. While I don't handle the pricing of combo kits and I do agree that they should have a discounted price for the combo, there is nothing that states anywhere that they must be discounted as a combo. The kits are a nice way to group products that you know you will use together, which helps to simplify the ordering process. Any pricing errors on the website are NEVER intentional. Humans come up with the kits and pricing structures and manually enter them into the website back end, and humans can and do make mistakes. I will review combo pricing of various kits and discuss with the Marketing Team. Respectfully, Dan@Adams

    Marine Products.......

    I've used our machine polishes on a few friend's boats with very nice results over the past few years! On the two boats that I did, I applied our Paint Sealant for protection, but I think when we re-do one of the boats this spring I'll be putting either Ceramic Paint Coating or Ceramic Spray Coating on it to see how well it holds up. We've even had customers that have used our Paint Coating on a private plane and helicopter before as well!
  18. Hey everyone! You may have noticed we have a new pressurized foaming sprayer available as of today, the Adam's iK 1.5 Foam Sprayer! You might be asking what benefit does this have over other sprayer options we have. Well, this is a pressurized foaming sprayer that works similar to a Foam Cannon setup - but without the need of a gas or electric pressure washer! Here's a quick look at operation and performance of the sprayer: Start out by adding approx. 33oz of water to the canister: Next, pour in about 2-3oz of Ultra Foam Shampoo or other foaming chemical (more on that later): Firmly secure the top, shake it up to mix the soap and water solution some, then pump it up about 15-25 times to pressurize the sprayer. I found that 26 pumps on the bottle was about max: Ready to go: Initial test spray onto the driver front wheel of my car. You can see it lays down a pretty thick foam! Now you're going to ask, how much can this sprayer foam down before you will need to pump it back up to pressurize it again? The answer for me was one full 20" wheel and tire: With one fully pressurized cycle, I was able to foam down a front fender or the painted portion of a rear door no problem. I foamed down about half of my fullsize sedan with one canister of Ultra Foam Shampoo and water solution. I would suspect I would need 2 to 2.5 canisters worth to foam down every section of the car. The nice benefit of this sprayer is that you could take it with you to a car wash to focus on key areas, or have a nice thick foaming capability if you're on a budget and can't afford a pressure washer, or would rather not deal with the setup of a pressure washer each wash. I can see myself using this for foaming down wheels and tires especially with our Wheel Cleaner or Tire & Rubber Cleaner! I'm planning on washing my car after work today since it's beautiful outside, so I'll make sure to get some pictures of using it with Wheel Cleaner too! Thanks for looking, and let us know if you have any questions!

    Ceramic spray on vinyl.

    Yep, you can use the new Ceramic Spray Coating on a vinyl wrap, and I have with great results! Here's a quick video where Kyle demonstrates application on gloss clear coat paint on a C10 truck and also on a matte painted hood on a Hellcat: The application process would be the same for a vinyl-wrapped surface, with the exception that you do not want to machine polish vinyl. Just make sure that you very thoroughly remove all residue from the coating, because if you would leave any high-spots they might be a little difficult to remove on vinyl afterward. If you would happen to get a high-spot, use a few drops of Brilliant Glaze and that should help to remove the high-spot if you get to it quickly enough.
  22. One other option if you don't want to cut it up would be the Tire Brush - much shorter handle, shorter bristles, and still great scrubbing power for fender wells, just make sure to keep it away from delicate paint surfaces: https://adamspolishes.com/shop/accessories/brushes/adam-s-deep-clean-tire-scrub-brush.html
