Bumper scuffs and wax

Simple question really, my front bumper has a few scuffs on it and im wondering if waxing it (along with the entire car) will help to remove the scuffs.

Probably not. Wax will not remove scuffs, unless they are light scuffs and you are using a cleaner wax like Gliptones Probuff. That product is 80% cleaner and 20% wax. If you want to try to get the scuff marks out yourself by hand, I would get a clear coat compatible compound and go to town. If it doesnt work you may have to have someone with a buffer to remove it for you.

Your gonna need a paint cleaner for that. Maybe some Meguiars Body Scrub. Should do the job.

A cleaner wax MIGHT do the trick but I doubt it unless the scratches are very very small. You will need a poilish or compound for that. Wax is just a protectant and has no aggresive properties unless it is some sort of cleaner wax.
