Is wiping sufficient?

After you polish a car, should you wash it instead of wiping since the polish is basically a solvent removing paint as you polish?

In the collision repair world, after buffing and polishing, we will wipe the cars down with a spray wax....

In true polish, it is not the solvent that does the work, it is fine abrasive in an emulsion.  I just wipe it down, I find no need for water.

Thanks for clearing that up, Don.
