Step 3: Remove the residue

After you've applied the polish to a section and let it sit for a little while (perhaps five to ten minutes), it will dry and turn a slightly different color. Remove that dry residue by rubbing it off with another clean, dry, and folded terry cloth. Use the same small, overlapping, circular movements to rub away the residue. Press down firmly, but not so hard that you grind the residue into the paint. Keep turning the cloth to a fresh side as needed. Continue with each section until the whole car has been polished. When you're finished, you should have a smooth, shiny surface ready for waxing.
