To wash again or not wash?

Question

I just washed and dried my car yesterday. Waiting on new polishing system from Adam's which is supposed to arrive this afternoon. My question for you Super Detailers is do I need to completely rewash the car before polishing or can I just use the waterless wash and then move to clay and polish?

 

Thanks for the feedback and recommendations!

Was the wash a 'strip' wash? If not re-wash with Dawn or Car Wash Shampoo and APC (I forget the ratio) to remove any old waxes. If you do the WCW cleaning, you will need to wipe the car down with an IPA & water mixture.

If you don't remove the old wax it can clog up the polishing pads, making them less effective. Some even do the IPA wipe down after the polishing, before they apply MSS or Americana.
