Rain after Wax

I've done a whole detailing job about 2 weeks ago (wash, claybar, wax, etc.).
Unfortunately it rained a few times already.

What should I do to maintain the shine which gets ruined by water-spots after the rain? Any quick detailing product anyone recommends that won't harm the wax job?

wash your car. once it stops raining to prevent water spots

to maintain the 'just wax' shine. either you re-apply wax. if your lazy just use a spray-on wax

If it was 2 weeks ago that he did the last wash, id do another full wash, QD is great if you just washed the car and it gets rained on, but alot of crap will be on the car after 2 week.

I don't mind doing another full wash, even reapplying the wax itself. I just don't want to do all the stuff I did before prepping for the wax like the pre-wax cleaner, claybar, etc.

Is it ok to wash the car and then just re-apply some more Carnauba wax right after I dry it?
