    Compound residue

    Any alternative way to remove compound residue . I've tried quick-detailers and Marine 31 polishing pad conditioner (which states it helps remove stubborn wax/compound residue). After I do a quick spray n wipe it always discolors the surface, like it removed some of the polishing oils or something . So I end up adding more compound to even it out. If I'm removing wax residue it doesn't stain.

    Try Car Pro Eraser.

    What are you working on and what are you working with tool and compound?

    Re: Compound residue

    DP Rinse-Wash diluted in a spray bottle works really good in removing residue.
    I like to work clean so after I polish a panel I wipe it down before moving on to the next panel.

    Does DP leave something behind (polymers), where you need to clean the paint again (Panel Wipe/PA) before applying sealant/coating?

    Re: Compound residue

    Griot's makes a Prewax spray cleaner. I have yet to use it. I hear good things about it and is much cheaper then Eraser which is awesome. I had to switch back to IPA could not justify the expense. So until I hear a great review on the Griot's I'm sticking to my 11% IPA that has yet to fail me.

    I would try 3m Perfect it Clean and Shine QD spray, it is great for getting up some left over polish/compound residue.
