Believe it or not your cleaning products like buffing and polishing pads, microfibers, etc. do need to be cleaned. As you clean and polish your car some of the dirt, contaminents, and microscopic amounts of paint or clear come off the surface and get embedded into those cleaning accessories. This is why you need to get into a routine of cleaning your cleaning products!
Over time, microfiber towels and foam pads for your buffer collect and hold onto wax and polish residues, dirt, dust, and other deposits that can decrease their effectiveness. You’ll also notice your towels won’t absorb as well and aren’t as soft as they used to be. Next time you’re cleaning these items add a small amount of Griot’s Microfiber and Foam pad cleaner to the water or washer when you launder your microfiber towels and cloths (wash separately from other fabrics). To clean pads, spray the cleaner on the pad, let it soak in, and then rinse with warm water. You don’t need to do this every time you use them but it is good practice to clean them regularly to be safe.
