Default mcguires cleaner wax?

SO got their clay kit and this stuff comes with it. Not going to use it when I do my full detail, but as I'm waiting for the rest of my detailing products to come in I'm thinking of using it after a quick wash with dawn and then using the cleaner wax and leaving it that way for a week or so until I restrip it down and do it properly. What does everyone think??

I have used that exact kit and it works awesome the way it is. You use the clay bar with the detailing spray and when done you apply the cleaner wax. For my car it worked great and kept it clean for over a year even with really old paint. The occasional car wash worked well for me until the next clay bar/wax a year later.

I have used the Mothers 3 step detailing process on my muscle car and STI(both are black) and it works amazing..gets rid of any swirls in the paint and leaves a deep gloss that lasts a long time. Washing the car is a lot easier after as well as the dirt just rinses right off.

I had the same little bottle and I haven't been happy with klasse lately. I think my klasse aoi bottle is either old that the wax isn't just working as well, or the subaru paint just doesn't respond as well to it. I was actually pretty happy with the megs.

It does either has abrasives, or more likely fillers, because it looked like I just polished the car once I was done. I mean it was a pretty drastic difference, almost all the micro-marring is invisible. I don't polish before winter since it just gets screwed up and the car is always dirty so for now it was a quick easy way that left the paint looking great.

From reading online there seem to be a couple various versions of the cleaner wax, some prewax in a 3 step system (which this one isn't as it says 1 step right on the bottle), some with abrasives, which was kind of confusing.

Will see how long it lasts.

SO this is what I will do once I have all my supplies in a week or two. Wash wish dawn to take off any and all remaining wax, clay, re-wash, Klasse AIO, Klasse SG 3 coats, dodo juice wax. I just need to know if it's okay to wash then use Cleaner wax and leave that way for a week or two?

Yep you are perfectly fine just using cleaner wax until the rest of your stuff comes in. Your KAIO and KSG are great and will offer much better durability as you know but the cleaner wax is fine to hold you over.
