    Question Washing after waxing

    Last Friday I detailed my vectra but over the weekend it has become covered in road muck again

    I waxed it with Turtle wax original and was wondering can I just rinse the road muck off and leave it to dry or will I have to wax it all again?

    Thanks in advance

    wash it with a decent wash wax which won't strip any pre-applied protection off and dry using a decent towel.

    Any decent wax should be good for 3 to 4 months , with turtle wax it probably came of the next time it rained so i would not worry about it just wash it as normal and rewax .
