It mostly depends on what you use as a lubricant. Most quick detailers and clay lubes will wipe clean and leave no residue behind. With this type I wipe it clean and start detailing, any polishes used after would easily and safely remove residue. Some people feel more comfortable with washing after, it kind of depends on what you like best. If you're using a shampoo mix (water+soap) then I would definitely wash it again to remove the residue.
