Best Replacement for clay

I used to always clay my car when I was going to polish and wax. I was reading that people tend to do it once or twice a year. I had always worried about the damage it could cause. I'd seen about fallout removers. Though I wasn't sure about how safe it is on paint. I'm also seeing that using something like fairy liquid would remove the old wax.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Clay bar wont remove old wax...polishing will.

Claying will remove embedded dirt, tree sap, industrial fallout, iron particles, tar and so on...that sits on top of paint and feels like sandpaper if you glide your hand over the paint after washing.

Claying step will prepare your paint for polishing and/or waxing.

Like in other similar threads first use clemical cleaners like Tar remover & Iron remover that will remove 80% of contaminants, then go in with clay.
