There are actually a number of reasons for removal with isopropyl alcohol. The first is removing excess wax, sealant or polish residue left behind. If you want to remove old layers of sealant or wax on the surface, then use isopropyl alcohol. If you finish polishing machine and want to make sure the polish oils are removed to ensure a better grip wax or sealants, then wipe car with isopropyl alcohol . Isopropyl alcohol will remove residue on the safe and effective surface to prepare it for the next step.
The second reason for a wipe with isopropyl alcohol is for inspection during the polishing process. Some polishes can fill the defects and give the false impression that they were removed. When using isopropyl alcohol to clean the surface thoroughly to remove residue, we certainly like what we see is exactly what we get!
OK, and so how do we use?
It’s actually very easy to use. First you buy a bottle of isopropyl alcohol (90-99%) or rubbing alcohol (70%). If you use after polishing or during inspection, you will have to use it undiluted. If only remove surface to prepare it for wax or sealant application, you will need to use rubbing alcohol to reduce the chance of leaving streaks.
In any case, take an empty spray bottle you will put your solution (or you can attach the glass comes isopropyl alcohol spray). Now the solution of isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle, equip yourself with a soft, clean microfiber towel and you’re ready to start! Now start to spray one panel over and remove it gently with a microfiber towel. Always apply a gentle pressure as you make a quick detailing or you apply a spray wax. If you use too much, then you risk paint scratch you just finished polishing her! Also, make sure you always use a clean hand towel, so do not avoid to use about few towels in the process. After you have removed the surface, you’re ready to go to the next step, application of favorites wax or sealant. No need to wash your car after using isopropyl alcohol.
