Best so far
December 19, 2014
Prior to buying this I soaked my pads in hot water with the powder pad cleaner. Some had soaked over night and longer. They wouldn't come fully clean. I figured that's just as good as it gets because I had been bad about cleaning my pads right when I am done using them. Many times they sat around for a week before I got around to cleaning them. When I received the XMT Pad Cleaner I decided to see what it could do on the pads that I had cleaned last month with the powder cleaner. I sprayed the pads a couple times, agitated a little bit with a pad brush, then put them in a zip lock bag over night. Next day I ran them under hot water. I was amazed to see pads I thought were as clean as I could get them, come cleaner.
I don't know if you can use them on MF pads, but I did. I cleaned my Meguiar's MF pads with them and they came cleaner as well.
I shouldn't really be this surprised. I have told my detailing partner many times the Pinnacle products are magic. Every one of them I have tried just work perfect..
I posted before and after photos below. Yes, that black 4" Rupes pad was soaked in hot water and the powder style cleaner and that's how "clean" I got it (if you can call a yellow pad that is black, clean). I was just going to toss it. Also remember, I allowed product to sit on these pads for weeks.. I could only imagine how well it's going to work when I spray them down right when I am done with them.
Pros:Works better than I expected
Don't have to fill a bucket, let them sit, pull them out, rinse them, empty the bucket. (Saves time)
Cons:Nothing that I can think of.
