    It will remove any wax so you'll need to re wax after.
    it dulls the cc, so need to polish again

    So what you're saying is use the naphtha, then polish with Mr sheen? or polish with something like carnauba wax?

    Thanks

    You need to be careful using petroleum based cleaners because it will effect the adhesive used to hold the mylar if your machine has mylar. You won't have a problem if you use it on the mylar itself but if it has a hole in it or you are working near the edges, different story. Metho does not effect the adhesive.

    I always clean the machine in metho as the cleaner and then a couple of light quick bursts of Mr Sheen. The metho does the cleaning and the Mr Sheen is the gloss and also speeds the ball up.

    Magic eraser is abrasive. On some machines it could possible help, on others you'll be through to paint in no time, especially if you're trying to get ball swirl out of the top coat.
