clearcoat is a clear paint substance that turns hard it the element that makes our paint jobs shiny... it a protective layer on the paint it'll chip off after years, but won't come off when washing

Even if you use Palmolive. That doesnt mean that Palmolive or other dishwashing soaps are good for the paint. If you only use Palmolive or you use it again and again you will dull your paint and make the paint fade. I advise against using dish soap on tha paint. If you want to remove the wax, Use the clay bar or Meguires Body Scrub....

I actuall know of a lot of people that have never waxed there cars since they bought them I do mine often like before summer starts and so on. But yeah I wouldn't use dish soap no matter what messes up the paint
