APC would do a nice job of this, along with clay.
Depending on how long ago you applied the wax most of it is probably off anyway :)

It can be used for absolute anything. I prefer to use Autosmart G101. Just add a drop into wash bucket or pressure sprayer and it will aid in stripping wax.

Hi Johnny - give us an idea of how much you want to spend on your products, asking for the 'best' could set you back many hundreds of pounds.

For help, there's my detailing guide, it lists suitable products for each stage and tells you what's what.

SNOW FOAM

I am thinking of using snow foam for the first time, firstly is it worth it on a 6month old car, also if yes whats the cheapest way to get involved with foam and an applicator?

thanks

Definitely worth it. I used it from new on our fiesta. It is simply a contactless pre-wash which removes an amount of road film/grit before you go at the car with your mitt. The cheapest way in as far as I know will cost around 50 and that would get you an I4D lance and some I4D foam.

Hope that helps, and feel free to ask any more questions :)
