Ammo NYC?

I saw this on the "Drive" channel on YouTube and wondered if anyone on here has ever used this product. Seems pretty new, I'm curious how this compares to Zaino and other car washing brands.

Here is the link

Bought some of the Interior Lather product (leather cleaner in a spray bottle) and used it to clean my steering wheel and arm-rest. Produced a clean, matte result, so I'm happy. I used his spray and brush technique, which worked better for me than scrubbing w/ a MF. Not cheap, but working well so far.

I'm not too fond of that guy for some reason. He gives good advice but it just seems so repetitive at this point. I've never seen anyone use his products and for that price there are already tested products that work. I wouldn't waste my time

Larry is a great guy to deal with. I like that he doesn't only promote his products but also products from Detailers Domain.

His products are of great quality as well. Especially his new stuff. Check out his new products on his website. Ammo plum ammo brute and ammo mud.

Has anyone tried the Leather Mousse? The cleaner worked so well that I'm considering a buy on this. He (and virtually everyone in this subforum) mentions leatherique as well, but I'm looking for something that doesn't take cure time under a hot sun, as I'm stuck in an underground garage and don't have the time it would take.

Use swissvax leather cleaner and leather milk. Its a little pricey but i will never switch back to any of my old products after using this. Cleans the leather super fast and requires very little effort and the leather milk literally softens the leather within the first hour of applying. Here is a 50/50 shot of a seat i did yesterday (only took me 10 minutes):

any smells associated with leather cleaner and the leather milk? i'm on the hunt for great cleaning ability with not scent added to the car or preferably the new car smell (not leather) left behind.

the leather cleaner smells a little like black pepper IMO but works amazing. The leather milk doesnt leave any scent at all and thats what i like best about it

Swissvax can be bought through swissvax.us. Swissvax has great products and their waxes are great but leather masters does a great job.

I live in miami and the swissvax usa store is maybe a 20 minute drive from my house. Ive been buying alot of stuff from them lately: glacier wax, leather kits, drying towels, etc...

I have been very satisfied with every purchase i have made with them

Haven't used the Hydrate yet, but the Wheel Soap is really nice to use. It cleaned the wheels really well and I like that I can use it for both the rim and tire, plus it's fun putting soap bubbles on your wheels

I'll let you guys know when I use the Hydrate.

I'm considering buying their car wash soap now..
