Cleaner wax. When is best to use it?

I just wash, polish and wax.

Sometimes I wash, claybar and wax.

And sometimes I wash, and just wax.


My question is, when is a cleaner wax to be used? If I were to use a cleaner wax, would'nt it make more sense just to polish it, then wax?

If you want to wax. . .wax; if you need to clean then clean.

It is just not possible to do two conflicting jobs at the same time and expect to get a good result; those products are for folkes that just dont want to put in the time to do a quality job.

If you need a quick shine up use a quality detailer to get you to your nexrt regular polish and wax.

I really like the detailer sprays. My truck is garaged so that helps, I wax only a couple of times a year but use the detailer after every wash. Right now I'm using Meguiars Ultimate Quick Detailer and I really like it. Prior to this one I used Meguiars Quick Detailer for a number of years.

Maquires is good; about to finish up the container I have.

I have since moved on to Griots Garage products. Like them a lot better. have used them on aircraft for years and they last longer than any thing else.

OK, this is why I posted the question.

Seems doing one full task, then another, like polishing then waxing is best.

I'm going to skip the cleaner wax.
