Generally speaking the residue left behind by polishes can be removed with just a clean microfiber towel. Some faint oils can remain that can slightly hinder the bonding process so wiping with a 50/50 mix of IPA can help. However using alcohol repeatedly on plastic, vinyl or rubber surfaces can dry them out so I don't recommend using them often. However you can skip this step altogether and just apply the sealant and get very similar results in my experience.
