Comments:

Turtle Wax has built its empire on making cars look their best. This spring, the firm rolled out Turtle Wax Fresh Shine Scented Protectants with Odor Eliminator, which cleans, shines, protects and deodorizes all non-porous automotive interior, plastic, vinyl, leather and rubber surfaces, and leaves a long-lasting scent behind, sans the residue. Its state-of-the-art formula includes UV absorbers that prevent fading, drying and cracking of interior plastics and rubber while shine-enhancing polymers restore the glossy new look of the interior plastic. There are four scents in the range—Outdoor Fresh, New Car, Berry Blast and Caribbean Coconut.
