    You might be using too much. Wax doesn't really absorb into the CC. What you could try as well is a towel dipped in some cold distilled water and going over it again to get rid of the streaks.

    Re: Need tips to avoid streaking

    What time of day are you working on your car?

    I've found some products to be much more prone to streaking when being applied late in evening when it's cool and the humidity is really high. My theory is the high humidity keeps it from drying properly and you're just continually smearing the product around the surface.
