To strip off old wax, how many of you wash your car with dishwashing liquid and how often do you do it? Especially interested in hearing from guys with black cars.

I've only done that once quite a while ago, but I think anytime you are going to do a multi=staged wax process on your car, it is a good idea. Otherwise I would use regular car detergent.

yes, it is good to use to remove wax. I am almost positive that Zaino and other companies say to use it before applying their products.

All that has been said is true. Best to get the old wax off and start fresh. :)

I only use it after I've had to compound the entire car if I've collected a bunch of surface imperfections.
Then I use a dish soap before applying the preferred wax/polish etc.
But before I even buff the paint, I first start with claying it.

So: clay, buff, dish soap, wax/polish.

If I don't buff with compound, then I just: clay, then wax/ polish.
