Using Intensive Tar Remover to remove waxes

Hi all,

I've seen it has been suggested that since HD Cleanser was discontinued that you can use AG Intensive Tar Remover to remove old wax coats.

Does anyone have any suggestions how to do it? Is it a case of wiping it on with a cloth like you do normally ITR or is it worth putting it in a spray bottle and letting dwell before rinsing off?

Cheers

Craig

If I am honest it probably would not work 100%, yes it will degrade the wax but for 100% removal you are looking at an abrasive polish

That will depend how long the wax has been on the car I think.

Put onto a cloth, wipe over the surface. It is what we use here to remove waxes when testing. You can check if the wax has gone by spraying sme water over and looking for any sign of beading.
