Have a little look at Dodo juice Lime prime as a pre wax cleaner as well

Bilt hamber cleanser fluid is also good, find it less effort than a polish type cleanser like Dj lime prime

I always clay before using a different wax, usually with a clay mitt like THIS ONE.

Just use soapy water as a lube and it's done in a few minutes.

Some TFR will remove the wax you have on, ideally clay it next, then use a Cleanser as mentioned to leave a clean base for your trial.

We've got the DoDo Lime Prime/Lite on big discount here: http://www.morethanpolish.com/dodo_juice.asp
