Completely strip any wax and or sealant

hi all, first post here long time lurker though.

what can I use to get rid of sealant/wax put on my car?

Will snow foam > rinse > wash (dodo juice) > CarPro Eraser.

Is that enough to eliminate any previous wax (HydrO2 Lite applied about 9 months ago, then Collinite 985?).

Thanks,
V8JB.

Normal wash routine, followed by a spray bottle with a little bit of dish soap in it. No need to buy all those specific wax sealant stripping products, when all they are is that buy different colours and smells.

I can recommend Meguiars Wash Plus. That leaves a really clean LSP free surface.

Dish soap won't remove wax, it simply adds a film over the wax that gives the appearance the wax is no longer affective

Without wanting to be rude, you are completely wrong on this. You are simply trotting out an old "myth".


FYI "dish soap" contain surfactants which leave residues that "wet" the surface and hence give the appearance of removal as there is no beading.


For organic sealants / waxes then either physical removal via polishing or chemical removal via panel wipe (and I mean genuine panel wipe and not IPA based products) is required to guarantee removal.

Cheeky - agree that polishing is required for "ceramic" type coatings.

Panel wipe is perfectly suitable for organic waxes etc.

Not true. Dish soap has salt in it. Not something I'd want to deliberately put on my car, unless I wanted to encourage corrosion. It also probably won't strip everything.

Disagree with this. In my experience Meguiar's Wash+ did not remove even Sonax BSD (which is hardly the most durable coating). After using Wash+ on my car there was no noticeable degradation of BSD's beading properties.

Also, John at Forensic Detailing showed that Wash+ can lightly mar the paint because of the abrasives in it. I only use it before polishing for this reason.

In response to the OP, you're probably best off getting some Upol Slow Panel Wipe. This is what bodyshops use to ensure a car's surface is completely free of contaminants, waxes, and grease before painting. Therefore should be good enough for changing your LSP! :-)

Hope this helps!

true, but with him stating he's wanting to remove wax and sealant, thought polish was the better option
