Clay will remove waxes/sealants, however it's very difficult to get 100% coverage when claying.

When I do a new car prep I always use either ZPC, AIO, or Prime before sealing. If you don't have a chemical cleaner/paint cleaner wiping the car down with iso:water will do it (iso:water = 50/50 alcohol/water). I'll add that to the sticky.
