    As already mentioned, wax it again. Another thin layer of wax should pick up the residue when used accordingly.

    Always remember "like removes like" I am guessing also that you either put to heavy of a coat of wax on or you didn't let it dry long enough. Factors such as temp and humidity are also factors when it comes to using Meguiars products or anyone elses for that matter. I have had issues with thi "streaking" before and normally after a second wipe they are gone.

    Did you shake the product vigorously before and during application?

    Also sounds like applied to thick, and did not wait long enough for product to dry.

    Apply thin second coat, do the swipe test, remove. Shake product well, before and during application.
    quality creates its own demand
