    Thanks Nick for the feedback.

    PH scale goes from 0 to 14. Normally, we think of neutral as being 7.0. However, it is not wrong to have a range for that definition.
    Distilled water has a PH of 7.0, salt water 8.0, milk and saliva are about 6.3.
    So milk is the stuff in milk shakes that I readily put into my tummy.
    That saliva stuff is what the pretty girls used to leave on my cheek when she kissed it.
    OK, I can be pretty neutral on that.

    Thanks for the update, I did look for my slide rule in case we needed it. I think it must be stored in the same place as my youth.

    Hi Nick - Is it safe to say this product removes all wax and sealant? Or is an IPA wipe down after second still recommended before applying sealant/wax? Thanks!!

    Anyone else know if products like this generally remove some or all wax/sealant?

    D1801 may compromise your existing wax to some extent, depending on whether it's a carnauba wax or a synthetic sealant, and how long ago it was applied (ie, how much is really still there). But since this product is generally used as part of a decontamination process prior to more extensive correction work, whether or not it will strip wax is usually not a major concern. Everything else you're going to be doing will take care of that!

    Now, if you're asking because you want to strip wax as part of a full decon process prior to machine polishing, then the answer remains the same - it will likely compromise the existing wax at the very least. Again, since you're going to be doing other steps (claying is likely still needed as this product primarily attacks ferrous contaminants) then you'll be pretty effectively killing off that remaining wax/sealant.

    If you happen to have a paint coating on the car, this will not knock it down.
