Soap and water for applying decals...

What kind of solution of soap & water should I use to apply large decals? Like if I have a spray bottle full of water do I just add one or two drops of soap? And is regular liquid dish soap fine?

regular dish soap will strip any wax that is on the car.

use a little bit of car wash soap.

This will be for applying new decals to a painted plastic sportbike fairing. There won't be any wax on it.

just make it so that its soapy, like you would wash your dishes.

once it dries just wash off the residue.

One drop of dish soap is more than enough. Fill the rest of the bottle with water.


EDIT: This is just as suggested by Brent Franker; resident vinyl guru.
