I'm going to order some Sonax. I'm all about Ph balanced cleaners...
I feel ya. I used to try the same thing, but I was just unhappy with what happened afterwards. I just bought some of those cheapo MF applicator pads from Autozone, spray some Auto Finesse Tyre Dressing on it, then rub it on. Wait for a while to let it set, then do it again. Seems to make them pretty wet looking. They don't get as shiny as they would when you spray it directly on, but you avoid the whole mess it creates.
