Polishing by hand - still need to use panel wipe/IPA?

Planning on using Megs UC and was wondering if the polishing oils need removed even when working by hand? Is this the same for the likes of Poorboys SSR polishes?


Thanks,

Tried telling them in the past, they just ignore me. Have even resorted to begging them, that just made them do it more!
