Stealth et al, anyone have a bad result from waxing clear bras? I'm going to use a high end wax called Wolfgang Fuzion. It's mostly white carnauba but does has other polymers.

Worried but want to apply it.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks dudes.
I think most high end waxes are fine, as is OptiGuard. What you shouldn't use is anything containing naptha or kerosene. Some waxes do contain these products, but I don't know about Wolfgang.

Most Carnauba waxes would be fine.

I myself don't put anything on top of the OptiGuard, but if I did, I'd probably just put a semi-permanent sealant like Wolf's Hard Body or CQuartz Finest. My issue with Carnauba is that in South Florida - products like that don't last long due to the heat. Fortunately it's not an issue in the pacific north west.
