When Did The Spray Polishes Get So Expensive?

Recommended Posts

the price increases, taken about a year ago, were the first Optimum has taken, period!  They came in the face of rising chemical, packaging, labeling, shipping, and labor costs - Dr G put it off as long as he could. Just FYI

My original thought was that if low sales was the reason the lotion/creme polishes were discontinued, then that doesn't bode well for the spray polishes at the current price point.  However, it seems I haven't been keeping up with the price of polishes/compounds, there are certainly more expensive ones out there, and less (on a per-ounce basis).   But most of those other polishes have an entry point for the smallest bottle of $20-24.

Maybe an 8oz non-spray bottle of the spray polishes would be a good entry-point addition to the line, especially since most people seem to dislike/not use/break the sprayers.

Dr G is trying to reduce SKUs, not increase.  He's very proud to have the only spray polish/compounds available (even if they can be problematic to find spray heads for) and I don't see him going back to pastes/non spray.

LOL...okay.  I'm afraid to use my Poli-Seal because I can't get any more, I don't like using my GPS because every time I shake it up I get solvent all over my hand.  I thought maybe I'd order another bottle of GPS to put in a squeeze bottle....but not for $30 when my bottle is almost full.  I'll just have to find a cap, take the sprayer out, and shake it up real good and pour it into something else.  And I guess do the same thing with my Hyper Compound and Hyper Polish, since every time I get the sprayer to work, the next time it...doesn't.

Oh, and that's too complicated to have to call up to get a sample size, who uses the phone anymore?  If I can't put it in my internet cart, well...I guess I'm not getting a sample size.

that doesnt work either because (well at least Hyper polish) it is thin it will still leak through the cap...trust me Ive done that. I have replaced the sprayer with one of those Chemical guys pop up caps and if I shake it I just get hyper polish all over the place

I'm not sure where mine is leaking when I shake it, whether it's from the threads or somewhere else in the sprayer.  I have to go through my bottles and dispenser caps and find something to put the GPS in, I'm pretty sure I can find something that will work.  I think I had to change the sprayer on the GPS because it exploded, unless it was on one of the other spray polishes that that happened.
