    Sponge or cloth app. pad when applying int. dressing

    When applying interior dressing ( vinyl or leather ) does it make much of a difference if you’re using a microfiber cloth, cloth applicator pad or a yellow spongy material applicator pad.


    I ask because when using Griots “Leather Care” today 1 one of the videos I saw the guy kept talking about using a sponge applicator pad.


    Is it just personal preference?

    I just use a microfiber towel. I probably use a lot more product doing this but I like the fact I can get pretty much anywhere with the towel where the applicator is more limited. I also use a dedicated paint brush for all the nook and crannies like the vents and buttons and all that.

    Meh.... writting on forums when you are half asleep leads to writting the wrong things ... I mean microfiber towel... made the correction...

    I use the SONAX care pad for plastics. Perfect for applying my interior protection to all plastic surfaces.
