Why?

If there is still some DSW on the car then it is obviously stuck firm doing its job. As you are putting on more DSW why can't you just put that on top of what is already there?

Yep, clean off the residue first.

If you don't have panel wipe then a weak solution of IPA (find Mike Philips post on dilution ratio) will work or Carpro Eraser or BH Cleanser fluid.
