    Re: Video: How to clean your pad on the fly

    wow, bug sponge works too?
    So with a bug sponge, I have to turn the DA on speed 1?
    With a brush, keep the DA off and brush in 1 direction?

    The Bug Sponge works to clean MICROFIBER PADS, not foam pads.

    I'd have to go out and re-check speeds for using a bug sponge on MF pads but I'm pretty sure you're going to be on the 5-6 speed setting in order to get the pad to rotate with a sponge pressing against it.


    With a brush, leave the DA polisher off and brush in a couple of directions. Also look at the pictures I posted from my how-to book as I show how you need to block the backing plate with your other hand to keep it from turning.


    Look at the lowest, left hand picture...
