Here’s a couple videos I’d like to share with all of you.  The first one shows you how easy it is to apply an all natural Clear Wax.



This second one shows you the Wax Buffing Brush Attachment that we use to achieve a fabulous finish in minutes.  Pardon my gross appearance; the workouts start TODAY!


TO WATCH MY WAX BUFFING TECHNIQUE VIDEO, CLICK:  This is an older video but my wax technique works with all the waxes we carry here at Shizzle.   We use a very specific type of wax so I can’t guarantee it if you’re using it on something we don’t carry.  All waxes are NOT made equally.

I’m attempting to create this video from my Ipad which isn’t going the greatest, so I’ll leave this short and sweet

Thanks for hanging out with me ~ Have an AWESOME weekend!!
