This question already has an answer here:
I have a 98 Mazda 6 to 6 who's paint is in pretty decent condition. however there is a little bit I've transferred paint and a few small scratches here and there that I'm planning on dealing with. obviously I have to wash it prior to doing touch up polishing and waxing. however I can't find a car soap here that is just soap, all have silicone or wax in them. I'm not worried about using wax remover because I don't think this car has never been waxed. could I just wash it this one time with liquid dish soap in preparation for my touch up work? I've heard people say never to use dish soap and I wanted to find out what the issues are.
