Captain Richards Best Cleaning and Polishing Products - Frequently Asked Questions PDF  | Print |  E-mail
  1. Can Captain Richard's Best be applied directly to the dirty surface of my vehicle without scratching the surface?
    Yes Captain Richard's Best is a two step process. The first step cleans the surface with mild cleansing agents that emulsifies and encapsulates the surface dirt, grease, grime, bird droppings, and water spots and safely removes the debris from the surface. The second step lubricates and protects the surface with bonding agents that provide a layer of protection that will not cause any scratching or swirling on painted surfaces. It cleans and polishes at the same time. If your automobile, motorcycle or any other vehicle is extremely dirty due to hazardous weather conditions, or neglect, just rinse off before applying Captain Richard's Best. This question about scratching the surface is the most commonly asked and if you have dirt on the surface you have to get it off somehow and a sponge or rag will scratch and even if you rinse it first there is still dirt stuck to the surface. Captain Richard's Best enables you to remove the dirt safely without scratching any surface.
  2. Can Captain Richard's Best clean and polish glass and chrome?
    Yes. Captain Richard's Best can make chrome, glass, Plexiglas, lexan and any smooth polishable surface look absolutely beautiful. Captain Richard's Best is also safe for tinted windows because there is no ammonia in this product. Never put an abrasive product on your chrome. With the Captain Richard's Best your chrome will look like leaded crystal, deep and beautiful.
  3. Will Captain Richard's Best harm the finish on my machine?
    Captain Richard's Best will help you protect your finish and keep that showroom look while adding depth and removing swirl marks and help prolong the damaging effects of UV rays.
  4. Does Captain Richard's Best repel water?
    Captain Richard's Best is great for beading and sheeting water to give you less water spots.
  5. Can Captain Richard's Best be used on the inside of my vehicle?
    Yes, you can use Captain Richard's Best on the dashboard, dials or any other hard smooth surface without leaving a greasy oily after feel.
  6. Can I use Captain Richard's Best inside the house?
    Yes. Captain Richard's Best is the best there is for windows, mirrors, kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures, ceramic tile, computer or TV screens, fish tanks, and musical instruments. It makes surfaces very smooth, so you must be careful not to use it where you walk.
  7. Can I use Captain Richard's Best on my motorcycle windshield?
    Absolutely. Captain Richard's Best will actually fill in small scratches and swirls and give you much better visibility, and also protect your windshield from getting pitted from sand and debris, and bugs will not tend to stick. There is no ammonia, no buildup and no discoloration. Never put Windex, rain-x, paper towels, rags or the crap at the gas stations on your windshield, because you will ruin your windshield.
  8. Will Captain Richard's Best hurt any engine parts?
    No, and you can do your inner primary without Captain Richard's Best turning colors like some products do, and your inner primary will stay nice and black.
  9. How many cleanings can I expect to get?
    Captain Richard's Best is an easy years supply , even for the cleaning maniacs. It's very inexpensive to use and can save a lot of time and money. You can clean and polish 150 motorcycles and 40 cars.
  10. How long will it last?
    The sun does not cook Captain Richard's Best off the finish. I live in Florida and in as little as three days the sun can bake your wax off your finish, but not with Captain Richard's Best. You can get up to six months protection, depending on where you live, but each layer you put on will make your paint job look deeper and deeper and deeper. If you have a motorcycle, do your inner primary with Captain Richard's Best, and it stays nice and black with no bleeding and no graying. Try that with some of your cleaners.
  11. Will it clean and polish aluminum?
    No. Our other product BOMB'S AWAY will do that better than anything on the market. Captain Richard's Best will protect your metals and stop them from oxidizing so fast.
  12. What's the difference between Capt. Richards Cherry Bike Wash and the All Purpose Cleaner?
    The Cherry Bike Wash is a quick, easy way to wash your bike or automobile without touching it while it is dirty. The All Purpose Cleaner is a multi use all purpose cleaner for washing cars, motorcycles, etc. in the traditional way and also for cleaning carpets, auto interiors, white walls and anything else not harmed by water.
  13. What about bluing on pipes?
    Bluing on pipes is not a question with an easy answer. I have personally used out metal polish Bombs Away to take bluing off many pipes, in fact Sampson Pipes recommends our product. Sometimes bluing comes right off, sometimes it takes a while and sometimes it doesn't come off. Our product is non abrasive and will not harm your pipes. If Bombs Away does not take it off it is not coming off unless you want to take the shine off your chrome.
