Quick and easy way to strip waxes and sealants?

Hi everyone

What would be the easiest and quickest way to strip waxes or sealants?

I’d like to test some new products on various panels of a car that has bare paint protection rather than layering it on top of an existing wax/sealant.

Would something like CarPro Eraser or Gyeon Prep help remove any existing product from the paintwork?

I’m hoping there is some sort of decon product or technique to help with this.

Thanks in advance.

Pre-wax cleaner with abrasives followed by panel wipe.

Depending on what you are trying to remove, meguiars wash+.

really, use an abrasive you have no real control over. use an pre wax were you can use the abrasives properly.

Thanks guys.

What pre-wax cleaner do you recommend?

And is this used after a routine wash?

Serious Performance paint cleanser. No abrasives, but chemically very effective at leaving paint bare. BH cleanser polish is excellent and contains abrasives, but also fills and leaves some protection behind, so for what you want I think the first option would be ideal.

Good point you make and sensible one too.
Problem is the OP did ask for the Quickest not the best.
Not sure that impatience and detailing mix well

It has worked for me everytime. As for control, it's no different to working a polish/cleanser into the car so total control over it. You apply to a wash pad, work into the panel then rinse. Very little difference to what you suggest.

Great time saver and brilliant for removing old LSPs without the faff of having to polish the full car with a finishing polish/cleanser. That's reserved for once a year for me.

Some people get it, some don't. I love the stuff for my own requirements but understand it's not for everyone. I was sceptical when it first hit the market but quickly realised what a brilliant product it is.

Meguiars marketed it extremely poorly though and that's what lead to the stigma attached to the product imo.

Been using this to strip old waxes and sealants with no marring and micro swirling at all I’ve even showed how it works to two professional detailers and now they used it because it speeds up the time spent doing a decon, also makes claying a doddle because you fine there’s hardly anything being picked up on the clay, so reducing the chance of clay marring

As Brian above said, it’s been marketed wrong and that’s why folks where weary about it. I suggest you do a 50/50 test with water and you will be shocked how good this Meguiars wash is
