    Haha have you really tasted it?

    The antidote to IPA poisoning (or any alcohol poisoning) is more alcohol funnily enough..

    Does it matter what percentage IPA you use?

    I must get some for my plastic trim before applying the Gtechniq Trim Restorer I bought.

    just get pure or 99%

    as for the original question ..... i havent read all three pages so appoligies if some one has already said,

    to remove old wax i just use a strong wash of 'chemical guys -bug bugger'

    which i originally bought for removing splatted bugs from the front, but it just eats wax, so i use it to remove wax now lol

    I bought 99% and dilute 10:1, that seems strong enough to get rid of most residues

    Some cleaners such as APC and degreasers wont remove LSP (wax) on the paint like you think it would. For some waxes such as our Addiction, Distinction, Black Magic and some Coli waxes can sometimes prove difficult to remove with cleaners. Ideally you will need either a IPA cleaner or a Co - Polymer remover which will remove all exsisting wax and oils in a instant and take you back to fresh paint - something we will be stocking very soon!

    Regards Mark
