Make your buffing pads last longer!

BLACKFIRE Advanced Pad Cleaner prolongs the usefulness of your buffing pads by removing product residues. When pads are cleaned thoroughly after every use, they maintain their texture and performance far longer. You'll save money and you'll get better results with your existing pads. Use Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner to clean foam and wool pads after every detail.

Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner is formulated specifically for the cleaning requirements of buffing pads. Polishes, waxes, and sealants can leave greasy residues inside the pores of foam pads and in the fibers of wool pads. If these residues are not removed, they can affect the performance of the next product applied with the same pad. For example, a pad with old polish residue in it can make the wax applied with the same pad look cloudy. It's not the wax's fault - the pad wasn't clean!

BLACKFIRE Advanced Pad Cleaner
Spray each used pad with BLACKFIRE Advanced Pad Cleaner after using it to release oily residues.

Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner removes the residues and old products from foam and wool pads so every product applied with them behaves as it should. Regular cleaning of pads prolongs their usable lives and saves you money on replacement pads.

When used on foam pads, Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner penetrates the foam pores and releases oily residue. On wool pads, Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner releases oils from the fibers and restores the wool's texture. Pads will perform like new, time after time.

Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner is low-foaming and clean-rinsing. It is safe for regular use on all foam and wool pads.

For the best results, spray used pads generously with Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner as soon as you are finished with them. This will allow time for the cleaner to penetrate and it will prevent products from drying on the pads.

You've invested a lot in your buffing pads. Maintain them with Blackfire Advanced Pad Cleaner.


  • Removes product residues from foam and wool pads.
  • Clean-rinsing, low foam formula.
  • Leaves pads looking and feeling like new.
  • Will not cause foam or wool pads to deteriorate.


Always clean pads soon after use. Spray pad generously with Advanced Pad Cleaner. Allow it to dwell for 30 seconds. Agitate pad with a foam pad conditioning brush. Rinse thoroughly with a stream of water.

Works well, but a bit pricey.
Only 4 stars based on price and something that can generally be taken care of with APC and some care. In saying that, I tested its effectiveness by leaving an AIO in a used pad for about a week to see if it would clean well. After letting the product sit around 5-10 minutes, the old dried AIO had been removed from the pad, other than for some mild staining. Don't know if an APC could've cleaned it out as well.
ProsVery effective, breaks down spent products and even AIOs left to sit, refreshes pads and cleans without harming foam, backing material or glue
ConsA bit pricey

Works Really Well
Product works really well, albeit a bit on the expensive side. I got it for free as part of a promo by Autogeek. Will I buy it if it's not free? Maybe - I mean, it does work. I am leaning towards using a different product though. If my preferred product is out of stock, then yes, I'll get this one.

Good stuff!
I used this on my RUPES pads (mostly blue and yellow). I let it sit for the time recommended before taking a clean rag/cloth and dabbing/gently wiping off the compound. Works great and breaks down old compound! After wiping them off I blew the pads off with air - left them super clean.
ProsWorks great - cleans as advertised
ConsCould come with a little brush/tool.
