oh, and it doesnt really matter a whole lot which clay bar brand you use. you are pretty much getting the same thing with every company you go with. Wax is a different story though. For wax go with zaino if at all possible. If you are limited to just buying locally I would get Meguiars or mothers.
Ah, the things wrong with this post... where to being?

1. Removing old wax can be very useful. Maybe the wax you have is very old. Couldbe uneven, switching brands, poorly applied, etc.

2. Dishwashing soap removes old wax and various other things that car was soap does not! Try to strip wax and grease with car wash soap... you see what you get!

3. Zanzio isn't a wax, it's a acryllic polymer sealant.

But I agree about

1. All clays are the same. Sure there are slightly more abrasive ones (rare) but most clay is clay (just don't use clay not designed for cars).
