Wash with dawn. Quick clay. Ready for wax. Easy.
Wrong. Unless the "wax/sealant" used is garbage Dawn won't do a thing. Dawn leaves little residual particles which is what imitates the look of getting the wax/sealant off. Best thing is wash, clay and then polish. IPA can be fine but got to be careful or you might really damage your paint.

Right. Washing with a grease cutter like dawn works to remove the wax. Regular wash will not remove the wax. Then clay bar.
