Default How do I tell if there'* wax residue on the car?

Hi all,

I'm planning to use Liquid Glass and read that I need to remove all/any wax first. I just got the car and I don't know if there'* wax on it or not. I just washed it and there are quite a few fairly deep scratches as well as a couple chips that look like they're down to the metal. Any kind of help with this would really be appreciated. And thanks.

Mike

I doubt there is any wax on it but a Dawn wash would be your best bet.

Any type of dishwashing soap will remove the wax. So remember that after you wax the car.
