After I sand my primer, wether dry or wet, I always wash real good
with Dawn or Joy dish soap.
After that, it's just tack it off and paint.
No wax and grease remover or anything else.
I never get any fish eyes doing it that way.
(I do let it dry a day before painting.)

why do you not use panel or prep wipe? instead of having to leave it a day before you can paint it? the technology is there so why not
use it?

I could, nothing wrong with that.
I like to wash everything to remove all dust.
I also like to wait a day for everything to dry.
But then, I like to wait a day before sanding primer and then another
day for it to be at least 2 days old before painting over.
(I prefer 3 days when time allows.)
It may seem like overkill, and to much time for a shop,
but it has really helped me on eliminating a lot of problems
with paint that come from primer not being fully cured.
I just get a more stable/better job that way.

I have to do all kinds of work but for my best I always wash the car and dry it with the air blower ,it really gets the dust and dirt out best but I paint the same day because it'll get coated with dust in an hour but I always ,always ,always use W&G before paint....
I know some primers can be sanded right away too but I always let it sit overnight before sanding too..got used to that back in the lacquer primer days...
