    Cleaner wax after polish?

    I have always just used meguiars cleaner wax about every three months , but I just bought meguiars ultimate polish. Is it okay to polish then use the cleaner wax?

    No.

    You would effectively be going:
    Clean
    Polish
    Clean
    Polish
    Wax

    As you can see, you would be repeating yourself, and removing the polishing oils from the Ult. Polish.

    You will want a regular wax, like Gold Class+, Nxt 2.0, or Ult. Wax, etc to follow up the Ult. Polish.

    Like Polaris said, that process is fine, but if you're only waxing every 3 months, you may want to invest in one of the 3 waxes he recommended.

    IMPO I would to Megs UP with one of the 3 wax/sealants mentioned. I use Megs CW for 1 steps and sometimes top it with another wax/sealant for added protection. Most AIO products don't have much in the durability department, so try something like Megs new Ultimate Wax and instead of waxing every 3 months you might be able to get away with 6 months.

    Cleaner wax after polish would just take off your polish.

    Re: Cleaner wax after polish?

    As has been mentioned, if you were to use a cleaner wax AFTER Ultimate Polish, the cleaners will remove the polishing oils left behind from the UP. Therefore you have negated the point of using the UP in the first place.

    You want to use a product that is a 'regular' wax - GC+, NXT 2.0, UW, #21, #26 are all suitable...
