Do not use Milwax.
Novus2 to clean and polish a dirty/dull playfield. But normally Novus 1 to clean then a pure Carnauba paste wax. Brand doesn't matter. I use my fingers to get into the tight areas such as orbits and lanes. Use auto terry cloth towels to buff off. Most people say do it every 100 games or so.

I only use that kit when I first get a used pin. It shines the playfield up real nice but is not needed after the first time. That is, if you take care of your playfield. If you use all 3 levels of that kit every time you clean your playfield, you will wear thru that clearcoat within a year I bet.

General consensus is to stay away from Cleaner Waxes. Just use pure Carnuba paste wax.

The major play area is all that needs to be hit every time IMO. I use my finger to put wax in the orbits and other hard to reach areas probably every other waxing. It is not necessary to take the playfield apart each time.
