    Did you clay your paint and ensure it was smooth as glass prior to applying the sealant?

    Trying to remove a sealant or wax can be a chore without the proper prep. Im not assuming you didnt, but thats the 1st thing it sounds like.

    I did clay it first. I'll have to delegate these cloths to Compound removal as Mike suggests I guess, and see what else works for the wax...

    Hi Mike,
    What microfiber do you prefer for glass (ie waffle, diamond, double loop)?
    Thanks Josh

    I like the simple waffle weave glass towels here,

    The Cobra Waffle Weave Microfiber Glass Towel cleans & buffs glass to crystal clarity with the soft texture of genuine Cobra microfiber.


    I wish they were SQUARE instead of RECTANGLE

    I've never understood why anyone would ever MAKE a rectangular towel or why any one would ever WANT a rectangular towel.


    When I worked for Meguiar's they introduced their Supreme Shine microfiber towel and it's rectangular. I was in a marketing meeting and I asked,

    Why rectangular?

    And the marketing people said,

    To be different.



    I though... okay.... I guess that's a reason. But when I fold a 16" by 16" SQUARE towel 4 ways, it fits my hand perfectly. When I fold a rectangular towel 4 ways - it's doesn't fit my hand. There's a huge section of towel that's just overhang.


    I guess this is why I'm not a marketing guy but instead, just a how-to guy.

    The marketing guys ought to listen to the consumers. If the consumers prefer square for the reason stated, then they should be square. The consumers are, after all, the ones who would be buying the towels.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    I agree on rectangular towels being all but useless.

    The only exceptions are my PFM drying towels, but you do not fold these.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
