I usually wax right after I wash it, don't wait a day or 2 because even then stuff can get on the paint. And I usually do it once a month just because it seems to wear off so fast because my car sits out side.

Oh I knew what you were talking about. I use the spray wax also when I wash my car weekly. Gives it a nice shine.

After proper waxing - only see a need for maybe a dusting there is no need to re-wash. Its okay to use a quick detailer in between washings or a waterless wash. Its also very important to use a good shampoo for washing and stay away from harsh cleaners or products not made to enhance and protect your paint.

Not just the dust. But those things are awesome to get pesky pollen off as well!
