Waxing advice please!

So having spent many hours hand t-cutting, SRP and then waxing the silver 156 was looking lovely. 1 week later give it a wash in maguirs and hose off and I'm left with loads of water marks.

What am I doing wrong? I used simoniz carnauba wax, super resin polish. I didn't dry but I've never found this a problem in the past. Any tips greatly appreciated.

You will need to dry it off using either synthetic chamois or microfibre cloth as the water beads and can leave spot marks especially if left in the sun

The problem is exacerbated after waxing/ polishing as the water tends to bead on the wax layer

Hope this helps, cheers

Once you've wiped down so it's relatively dry, MF cloth with Simoniz Detailer Spray will stop this problem.

I think it smells like a splash of Brut33 as well
