Simply drop them in a bucket of detergent and water as you swap out to a new one and launder them when done. I've been doing this for years with coatings and again, there's no need. They clean up just fine. I have a drawer full of the CarPro Orange MF/suede removal towels that I use and they are soft as day one.

    Applicator covers, yes, toss those as they are cheap/come with the products and can be made from larger suede-ish towels if needed. soaking the applicators does cause them to crust over but not on the removal towels.

    In terms of the Lite Product starting at 16 mins. I was really hoping CarPro would come out with a direct competitor to GYEON's CanCoat as it really makes for a super fast LSP application. Also interested in how this "lite" version would compare to simply using Gliss as an LSP since both are targeted at lasting the same length of time when used as the LSP.
    I agree I use my carpro orange towels with essence and other si02 products and they wash out fine. Plus they are 2 expensive to throw away

    Thanks for taking the time to make this video. I watched all of it from the beginning. You convinced me to buy it when my sealant and wax run out.

    I ordered a kit and it's supposed to be in tomorrow. If it ever quits raining here I will post up a review. As of now it looks like rain the next 10 day. I'll also show why I want to go with a coating that doesn't last a couple years.

    do you have to polish the car after 6 month like regular CC or it wears off on its own?

    It will last longer than 6 months especially if it is maintained properly. It is essentially the little brother to Cquartz UK 3.0 and it will need to be polished off at some point.

    For maximum performance polishing will be the way to go. You would probably be ok if you didn't polish and reapplied it over the previous application. You will more than likely to decontaminate as the coating will have contaminants on it.
