Default Pre Wax Cleaner questions...

Are there diminishing abrasives in Pre Wax Cleaner?

If used with the same polishing, or finishing pad/speed combination by machine, will Pre Wax Cleaner finish up finer than Power Polish?

Thanks

If I recall, Step 1 is a mild polish with chemical cleaning.

Mothers recommends PowerPolish followed by PowerWax (pure wax) with no step in between so this means it is probably not necessary. In my limited use, I have not seen a need.

I am also making the assumption you use the right pads with PowerPolish like a LC white as your last pad if you used a more aggressive pad.

Yes, I've always treated Pre Wax Cleaner as pretty much a chemical paint cleaner. However, I may not be taking advantage of it's polishing capabilities.

Recently, Forrest said that you can use Pre Wax Cleaner after Swirl Remover to remove any possible hazing or marring left behind by Swirl Remover, or other mechanical polishes, of which, Power Polish would be included. I've never seen much hazing or marring by Swirl Remover. Nonetheless, it would be good to know if Pre Wax Cleaner is somewhat of a multi purpose product... cleaner and finishing polish.

That's the point to the questions in the previous point. Hopefully, admin or Forrest will advise.

Pre-Wax Cleaner is not a diminishing particle product.

It is a wonderful very light cleaner/polish, though. With a white pad, it works great.

Thanks Forrest,

I'm going to give it a try as a light polish by machine, rather than just using it as a paint cleaner.
