Double speed wax "greasy" residue

Hello! I've been doing some DA work today. Didn't manage to get round the whole car but I covered each complete panel with BH DSW as I went around and then buffed it off. I worked out of the brilliant sunlight that we've had.

Obviously it's quite warm for most in the U.K. at the minute and I wasn't overly surpsied to see that the wax which I keep in the garage had sofened up. There was an odd watery layer on the top. I ended up applying too much and leaving it too long on the first panel (previously used in winter conditions). I stuck the DSW in the fridge while working on the next panel and it returned to a more familiar state.

My issue is that in the blazing sun, the clarity of the paint is slightly hidden by what appears to be some remaining DSW. There's kind of a greasy layer in some places (particularly panel 1 - no surprises) which makes it look like micro-marring. I can be sure it is not micro-marring as wiping the panel in the other direction (vertical or horizontal) will change the direction of the "defect".

It's nothing too major as this is a daily driver and I'm kind of hoping/ expecting after a bit of driving and a wash or two, it'll probably disappear.

Is there anything I should do or can I be reassured it'll go with time?

Cheers

This happened on my black Focus back in August with DSW too. I had to strip it off in the end as each time I washed it the greasiness came back.

Did you reapply without issue or use something else?

Hi mate, I had the same issue on my Celica. It's solid black, so the hazing was quite pronounced. I washed the car a few days later and went over it with some Zaino Z6 and it's good as gold again. Can't speak for other detail sprays, but it worked for me. Z6 is pricey, but I got it at waxstock last year a bit cheaper. Give it a good wash and try a proven detail spray like gold class or rapid detailer. It may work.

Hi thanks. I haven't looked all around the car but it was pronounced on the door which I applied pre-refrigerating! Hopefully the rest of the car is alright. It's as shame as i really liked dsw when i first used it in winter. I will bare your method in mind I have some citrus bling, which is a bit of an all-rounder but might be worth a shot with that since i've got it laying around

Hi mate, not topped it up yet. Z6 shouldn't add much, it's a q.d that works best in conjunction with their own stuff. I'm sure the DSW is still there o.k and I just removed the hazing. When I get chance, I may correct the paint, and apply something from my collection. I tend not to obsess too much about a wax this time of year. I'll slap something on if the mood strikes, usually Sonax BSD. The winter's where I get the coats on. ( the car.) Best of luck with whatever you decide. Anyway I can help, keep the thread going! Have a nice weekend.

Stripped it with SRP in the end and AG tar & adhesive remover in the end.

Then re-waxed with HD wax.
