    Thanks Nick... There just seems to be a lot of conflicting info out there. Most say clay will remove most, but not all, and yes a compound cleaner wax/polish, but what about when you already have done paint correction. I was under the assumption that if you had a sealant down, you can put wax over it, but if you had wax first, you couldn't apply a sealant over that. So what I'd like to do is take the wax off so I can apply a sealant, but I don't need to clay or compound. Isn't there an easy way to take off wax? And many professional detailers will say that you should start with a clean slate even before claying and compounding, but no one ever really gives details on how they take the wax off.

    I think I found the solution! Meguiar's Wash Plus

    Wash the car and strip the wax off all in one wack, should work right, because it's compounding (polishing) but not applying any wax.

    Washing the car with dish soap (instead of car wash shampoo) will strip most, if not all of your wax. Depends how durable your wax is really! What sort of wax did you use, which you are now seeking to remove?

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Great to hear! I have sometimes lately been using it to remove stubborn insect/bird droppings. There is no pro equivalent at this time.
