    How can I remove Wipe New® from a painted surface?

    Wipe New® is more easily removed from unintended surfaces if it is wiped off immediately. Within the first hour (only) of application, acetone can be used to remove Wipe New® from painted surfaces (see acetone product label for cautions). After it has dried, Wipe New® can still be removed from paint with a small amount of polishing compound, and a little time and effort. Apply the compound to a clean microfiber cloth and work it into the affected area in a circular motion until Wipe New® is removed. Afterward, use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe away any remaining compound residue, then use your preferred polish or wax to restore the shine to the affected area.

    Why does the surface look streaked while/immediately after applying Wipe New®?

    Streaking may occur if 1) prior to beginning the surface has not been thoroughly prepped (cleaned with soap and water, free of greases/oils and dust particles), 2) the cloth begins to dry during application, and/or 3) the treated surface is exposed to moisture within 24 hours of application.
