If weather permits, I wax my car every weekend. I have been doing this for all of my car I had in the past...the more you do it, the easier it is to buff the wax off. Takes me about an hour to wash and wax.

as far as "taking the color off the car" that can happen, but only if you use a cleaner was. A cleaner wax takes thin coats of paint off, and you will notice that on your cloth after you start to remove the wax. If you use a normal wax, it won't hurt the car, feel free to do it as often as you want... The cleaner wax in my opinion should be done once a year, after the winter, ti get all the crap of the top layer of paint..

I wax a min of 4 times a year. I will do more, but it depends on the bead of water on the car, overal apperance after a bath, and stains from bug guts bird droppings, tree sap, etc. I use an orbital for applying the wax and then I hand buff it off with a soft cloth. A friend of mine that has a detail shop told me about using the orbital to apply the wax, I never need to use a cleaner wax then. This method has been working great for me for years. I only use Turtle wax Emerald series 100% pure Carnuba, Meguires Gold Class, or Mothers.
