    Merlin's Majic Elixer - The secret formula divulged!

    Merlin's Majic Elixer - The secret formula revealed!

    Years ago I learned about a "Majic" combination of a couple of Carpro products from a very wise alchemist.
    It has become known as "Merlin's Majic Elixer". I will now reveal the secret "Majic Elixer" formula on the forum.

    The BASIC formula:
    In my case, I use 50ml/1.7oz of Reload and 50ml/1.7oz of ECH2o in a CarPro 500ml Empty Spray Bottle



    I fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water (I love concentrated products. I hate paying to ship water)

    The Chemistry...

    ECH2o:
    Waterless Wash, High Gloss Detail Spray, Rinse-less Wash based on a SiO2, EcH2o safely cleans and glosses a variety of exterior surfaces with ease!

    Reload:
    Reload packs the glass-like gloss, hydrophobicity, and dirt repellency of Silica Nanotechnology in a convenient spray-on, wipe-off sealant.

    Combined Together...

    It is now available as a bundle Gloss Lovers Kit* that includes 2 Microfiber Madness Crazy Piles 16" x 16" and a Microfiber Madness Slogger towel.



    The Gloss Lovers Kit* includes "the amazing high gloss CarPro Reload nano sealant, CarPro Ech2o Waterless Wash & Quick Detailer,
    as well as critically acclaimed Microfiber Madness Crazy Pile towels and a Microfiber Madness Slogger for application of Reload!"

    These can be used separately or combined using the "Merlin's Majic Elixer" formula above for a handy high gloss QD and sealant in one.

    Folks that I have detailed their vehicle(s) always ask the question "How do I maintain the finish when I'm on the road?"
    So I supply them with a premade bottle of "Merlin's Majic Elixer" and a towel to keep in the car for those "moments" they need a touch-up.

    Thank you , Mike. I have shared this magical mixture of great products on the Tundra forum I belong to. It is a huge hit!

    Great post. Lots of good information. It's gone viral on video as well on Pan The Organizer's channel.

    It is interesting that Hydro is in the mix. I am curious how that works considering Hydro is water activated. Perhaps as a drying aid?

    How often are you guys using the Elixir mix in conjunction with applying Reload by itself for maintenance? Hope the question makes sense.

    The mix is nearly daily/weekly. Reload as a stand alone, depends on the situation but I can say nowhere near as much as the mix. Maybe every 3-6 months?

    I have not used this mix nor do I use reload. I prefer to see the performance of the actual base layer coating. In my case CQUK 3.0 topped with Gliss. I only use EcH20 as a drying aid as a topper. I may test out one of these mixtures.

    A while back I (and a few others) had difficulty with Reload streaking and being a bit difficult/problematic to use.
    Since then (I believe) they tweaked the formula to not be as finicky or streaky. It is a much better product now.

    What I like about the "Merlin's Majic Elixer" is that Reload and ECH2o are both weter based and play well together.
    Also, the concentration of Reload is not 100% and the finicky/streaking does not appear to exist with this formula.

    I give a bottle of this to each client that I detail their car and they are able to spray and wipe with no challenges.

    I have used the Majic Elixir since it was first announced here by Merlin with great success. Never have I encountered any streaking and its longevity is quite good.

    Kudos to the wizard that created this formula.
