    Good way to clean your AIO pads

    I had an AIO detail this past weekend in which I used HD SPEED. The caked on residue has dried on the pad for 4 days. I have some McKee’s APC mixed at 1:4, so I gave that a shot. Didn’t do much. So, it popped in to mind, let me try Poorboy’s Strip Down, as it supposed to do exactly that, strip waxes. BOOM, cleaned MUCH better! This is before and after two rounds of cleaning under the sink.

    Re: Good way to clean your AIO pads

    Nice tip for dried on Speed.

    I find that spraying the pads immediately after use with McKee's pad cleaner, and then throwing them in a bucket of APC/microfiber detergent works very well.

    But I understand that is not always possible.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    I never let my pads dry, I put them in a bucket of water and Dawn detergent and let them soak. I have tried this with 3D Towlel Kleen, the Dawn works better. My pads are flat face closed cell.
