+1. Last last time I applied it, I got overspray on the windshield. Didn’t see it, so didn’t wipe it off before it dried. Then nothing short of machine polishing the windshield would remove it.

One more thought, RSA.

P21s 100% Carnuba Wax isn't a cleaner wax, so your end result will only be as clean as the surface you start with.

However, P21s makes a cleaner lotion as well, which...

Touch up paint for Satin Black GTS wheels?

RSA, I've been applying the wax about once a month and washing about every two weeks.

You'll know it's time to re-apply when water stops beading on the paint.
