Frequently Asked Questions


What is LXR?

LXR is an All-In-One, 5 in1, car care product that is used like a car wash. It replaces car wash, wax, glass cleaner, wheel cleaner, and bug, tar, and sap remover products, combining all
of them into one, easy to use product. LXR also adds protection to your vehicle with each use by renewing its clear protective coating.

Does it contain harsh chemicals that are bad for the environment and hard on skin?

LXR is certified non-toxic and readily biodegradable, and also contains no petroleum distillates making it environmentally friendly. It is also gentle on the skin.

How do you use it?

You pour 3-4 ounces in an empty bucket, then add 1 to 1.5 gallons of water and mix well After mixing well, you should pre-rinse your car, then wash your car one section at a time, starting from the top and working your way down. After each section as been washed thoroughly, rinse your car again. No towel drying is necessary except for the windows after the first few washes. The more you use it on your vehicle, the smaller amount is needed per wash.

How does it wax your car?

It has a patented acrylic formula that renews and fortifies the clear acrylic protective coating on your vehicle every time you wash it. The formula sheets water off your vehicle vs. traditional water beading, reducing water spots and creating a non-stick formula which helps keep your vehicle cleaner for longer. This also helps eliminate towel drying. There is a video on the Home Page explaining the “Acrylionic Effect” and how it works.

Is it safe for all surfaces?

Yes, LXR is safe for all surfaces that are not harmed by water, including convertible tops, fiberglass, leather, vinyl, plastic and rubber trims, aluminum, steel, painted wheels, and newly painted vehicles.

Can it be used on vehicles other than cars?

Absolutely! LXR can be used on boats, RVs, motorcycles, trailers, campers, and more!

How many uses are there per bottle?

Each wash with LXR uses 3-4 ounces. A 32ox bottle contains 8-10 uses, while a gallon of LXR contains 32-42 washes.

What are some tips to get the best results when washing your car with LXR?

Make sure LXR is added to an empty bucket first and then add water to mix well and  help dilute it, since it is so thick. It’s always good to rinse your car before you wash it, especially when it is hot outside. Additional washes with LXR help to increase gloss and water sheeting, as well as building up the clear protective coating. When washing, start with the top of your car and wash one section at a time. Be sure to use a sponge or microfiber towel to avoid scratching your damaging your car’s exterior.

Label Caution – Oxidation Warning?

Some older vehicles may have damaged paint caused from oxidation. This is where rust forms under and loosens the paint. LXR may clean this loose paint off of vehicles with these conditions and may dull the surface. Test a small area if you think your vehicle has this condition. Most people like how LXR cleans up old damaged paint and then begins to restore the clear coat.

White Spots?

LXR effectively removes any wax currently on the vehicle and replaces it with a clearer stronger acrylic protection. Sometimes the current wax may not get totally removed with one wash and may leave some white spotting. Wash again and rinse very well to correct this. It happens more often on black vehicles because these vehicles hold a more powerful chemical charge and do not want to release the older wax on the first wash.

Towel Drying and Window Spotting?

When initially used, you may have to towel dry your windows but this can be eliminated with additional uses. When used and rinsed properly no towel drying is need on the vehicle due to the water sheeting and drying effect of the LXR.

Is black paint an issue with LXR Wash?

Hard water is a difficult condition that many car wash products as well as the LXR try to compensate for when mixed for use. Black painted vehicles tend to absorb the wash chemicals due to their dark color more rapidly, making the application more obvious. If the wash mix is uneven or too strong it will bond to the surface unevenly causing streaks, especially evident on dark colored vehicles. This is eliminated by mixing the LXR very well, rigorously with the water. Mix well, even with warm water if possible to improve the mixing. Wash smaller sections and in addition, rinse each section after washing longer than normal. A good indicator is when rinsed well there are no suds left on the surface. Dark colored vehicles with uneven application streaks can be repaired by additional LXR washes mixed thoroughly and rinsed effectively.

Does your product work on oxidized fiberglass?

The notice on the back of LustreLab LXR’s packaging concerning oxidized painted surfaces applies to all painted surfaces including fiberglass. LXR is an excellent cleaner and as such, will remove the loose paint and chemical coatings on oxidized or damaged painted areas. This is why it cleans the black rubber streaking seen on RVs and motorhomes. The coating, or Acrylionic protection, works best when there are protective coatings in place that the LXR can bond to with each wash, creating the surface protection with this effect. Most oxidation damage occurs on horizontal sun exposed surfaces and not the vertical surfaces.

Please test a less obvious area of the surface you want to use it on to ensure the results are satisfying. Over time, with multiple washes, there may begin to be some bonding, shining, and repair of the damaged surface.
