Using the TUD Wax and Grease Remover Wipe is a great way to be sure the surface you’re about to paint is completely and thoroughly clean. Washing with soap and water prior to a paint project is a great idea, no doubt. But not all residue comes when you're just washing with soap. In fact, most waxes will not come off with soap. But they do need to come off if you’re going to be painting. This is why it’s an excellent idea to use the TUD Wax and Grease Remover. It will remove residual road grime, grease, and wax that could spoil an otherwise excellent paint project.
