    Default cleaning my pads

    well i have washed my pads, microfibres etc after the brentwood show. and i washed my da pads too, now although they look clean there is still product in them, for example i managed to squeeze black hole out of my finishing pad :S how can i clean them and removed all the product? :S

    also after washing my microfibres i suddenly realised i have a real issue this site has made me obsessed i am a self confessed detailing freak and i now have 43 microfibre cloths, 2 drying towels and countless numbers of pads oh and about 3-4bags full of cleaning stuff lol

    I would either use strong APC, or even non bio wash powder, or fairy liquid and wash them by hand in the sink, that way you should get all the product out of the pads. A good rinse in warm water or even a rinse and spin cycle in the machine will rinse them out.

    No, just stick them in a polly bag of some sorts. Zip lock or self seal sandwich type bag, or even the bag they came in would do. a quick squirt of QD or water tomorrow and they will be fine.

    You can also use a tooth brush to clean the pad whilst its still on the machine. This will remove the worst of the dusty stuff. Just start it up at a low speed and dont press down too hard.
