How To Remove Car Wax

If you’re interested in changing the type of wax on your car, it may be helpful for you to know how to remove car wax from it. You might even being removing your car wax so that you can touch your car up or even give it a whole new paint job. Either way, you need to know how exactly to remove car wax. Luckily, the process is quite easy, but it can also prove to be time consuming. With this information, you’ll have your car wax off in no time so that you can do what you need to do.

To remove car wax, you will need:

  • Heavy duty liquid dish soap
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Water
  • Wax remover
  1. Removing car wax is more like a trial and error process, so you should always start as easy as possible. Almost any type of liquid dish soap is potent enough to strip the wax right off of a car. Simply mix some with water and work it all over the car’s finish. Rinse it all off once you’re finished.
  2. If the dish soap did not work, you should try mixing one part rubbing alcohol and two parts water together. The alcohol in the solution is perfect for working against the wax and stripping it right off of the car. Again, this method should be left to try if the dish soap did not work on your car’s wax.
  3. Invest in a quality car wax remover in case the former methods did not work. Of course, you want to avoid spending money, so this solution should be left to try if nothing else works. You can find wax remover in almost all auto parts stores. Because of this, finding some shouldn’t be a problem. Be sure to read the labels on the removers as some of them are powerful enough to take off more than the wax if they are not used properly. Again, pay attention to labels and use the removers as correctly as possible.
