How Do You Remove Old Car Wax or Polish?

How do you remove old wax, polish and other sealants from car paint? Let us show you how quick and easy it is to do.

Fresh wax, paint protection film, and new coatings bond to the painted surface best when it is clean of old paint protection material.

When doing this it's best to stay away from caustic dish soaps & abrasive laundry detergents when washing your vehicle. Sure they may remove a wax coating, but they can also harm your vehicle’s finish by etching, staining or scratching the paint. Instead use a car wash shampoo that is specifically formulated to tackle the task at hand!

Using Clean Strip to remove tough dirt and old car wax or seallants

Clean Strip safely removes any previous wax or sealant applications, perfect for prepping paint for correction and polishing, or a new wax application and is PH-balanced.

How do you use Clean Strip? Follow these simple instructions.

Great for use with a traditional hose & bucket, with a foam gun, or even a pressure washer & foam cannon setup. If using a traditional hose & bucket, we suggest using the two-bucket car wash method.

Directions for use with a hose and bucket:

1. Add 2-4 ounces of soap to an empty bucket. Spray a pressurised blast of water to fill the bucket and produce loads of luxurious suds.

2. Wash car or truck with your normal wash routine and dry the car.

3. Now its ready to apply the new coat of wax etc.

Directions for use with a foam gun or foam cannon:

1. Fill the water/soap reservoir with clean water until almost full. Note if there are any fill lines printed on the bottle.

2. Add 2-4 ounces of soap to the water/soap reservoir.

3. Attach to foam gun/cannon and use per manufacturer's instructions.
