This stuff makes cleaning pads, micro fiber towels, applicators that are dirty and soaked with product back to practically new again. It's a "must have" if you're detailing cars.It makes the chore of clean-up into a breeze.
ProsIt's simply a "must have" unless you like throwing money away on brand new stuff.

Excellent for pads not so much for microfiber
Did a great job on my pads. However when trying to clean my microfiber towels the towels were stained and still looked dirty after I soaked them for an hour and then washed them in washing machine. Upon inspection I was disappointed in the job. I've never had anything like this happen when I would just spray them with "Shout" and wash them in my machine all dirt and stains were removed and they would look brand new. Not so using this product the stains were awful and they still looked dirty.
Not sure why but the fact is that is what happened
ProsGreat product for pads
ConsWould not recommend for use on microfiber products

Used this for the first time, mixed per the directions, Works excellent at cutting compounds, polishes and wax.
ProsWorks as advertised
ConsKind of expensive for what I'm guessing is a Citric acid based product, what ever is in does work. :)

Appears to work just fine. Of course, I don't have any other product experiences to compare it to. All I know is the pads that I am cleaning seem to be free of accumulated wax and other products.
ProsEasy to use. The only mess is the one that I make using the brush to scrub the surface of the pad. I give it a good scrub so I have water splashing all over. But the pads are very clean when I am done.
ConsNon that I can see and report on!

Not sure what it does
I mixed as per the instructions on the bottle (1 scoop for 2 to 3 gallons), put 2 HydroTech and 1 CCS pad in it for about a half hour. Pads had Meguiar's UC and M205, and Opt Hyper Polish on them. The Opt had 2 sprays on it and after 1 panel I stopped as it was not enough to remove the swirls. So basically it had practically nothing on it. Once in the Rejuvinator I Agitated a few time on a grit guard, brushed, and squeezed the pads multiple times to get the solution within. Took them out after 30 minutes and they looked the same as they did when I put them in. Rinsed them in the sink and nothing else came out of them. The instructions here on this page say to use 3 times as much powder for the mix. What's up with that? From my 1st time experience, I can't see what this product does.
DP Polishing Pad Rejuvenator is a citrus-based degreaser that breaks up and dissolves polishes, compounds and waxes. Products that have colorants added (like Hyper Polish) do tend to "stain" pads, but rest assured the cleaning solution removes the spent polish even if the "stain" remains.

DP Pad Rejuvenator Best Ever
Best product Ive found in 20 years in Detailing/Paint Restoration for cleaning wool, synthetic and foam pads.
Excellent pre-soak for other items as well.

Cleans polishing pads and towels easily and effectively
I throw my towels and pads in my utility sink with a scoop full of this stuff and leave them for a day. The next day all the wax and polish buildup comes out with very little effort. It helps to use a pad cleaning brush on very stubborn buildup. After that I throw the towels in the washing machine and dry them on low heat. For pads I rinse them out and dry them with compressed air. Works great!
ProsEasy to use

Detailer's Pad rejuvenator kicks dirt & grime
Use so little product to keep pads clean. Makes pads work harder for me being clean all the time.

Great product and Time Saver
The last thing one wants is to spend more time cleaning detailing pads and equipment after spending the time using them. This product works great and cuts that time down. This not only helps protect your equipment so you know it will be there ready for next time you need but makes sure your not wasting money replacing pad you were too lazy to clean thoroughly.

Excellent Cleaning Product If Not The Best!!!
I am new to detailing and this product. Based on my experience with other products that i am new to has in many cases been disappointment. These products were marketed as the best in tje industry and after using them, you realize they are only average. I mixed the solution using one scoop. Then I threw pads and microfiber towels that I used over three months ago. Don't ask why I kept them but I came back after 15 minutes and noticed that although they were cleaner then they were before I thew them in they were still dirty. So I threw them back in and fell asleep for the night. Went to work the next next morning and forgot about them but when I returned home 8 hours later I just so happen to go to my utility closet in which the towels and pads were soaking in the solution and was astonished to find that the pads and towels were completely clean. I swear that every word of the review is true. The makers of this product deserve an award...sad that all I can give is a positive review. GREAT WORK GUYS...you have a customer for life.

really easy to clean pads .
This is the easiest way I have found to clean pads. I let the pads soak for about 10 minutes then brush the surface with an old toothbrush to get any excess wax/polish off. Then I let them soak for a few more minutes and rinse really good with a hose. It works great on foam and wool pads.

Great Product Use for your foam pads and microfiber towels
Great Product. Saves you money from having to buy more foam pads that get caked up from the cleaning product. Also works good on those micro-fiber towels we all use for removing polishes etc.

One of the best products available at autogeek
I have to say, honestly and without reservation, that this is one of the best products I have ever purchased. It does what it is supposed to do better then expected and has a variety of other uses in which it excels. It cleans foam pads to like new, if you wash them with your hands, you can feel how effective this product is! It restores microfiber and even cotton towels to amazing condition just as effectively or even better than the Pinnacle Microfiber Rejuvenator. It have even used it to clean brake dust off of my hands. I admit I am excited to see what other applications this product can excel at. Highly recommended. In fact I seem to run out of this product at an alarming rate every time I buy it.

just dilute in some water and you can feel how soapy and slick it is...definitely a great solution to soak pads in as you are detailing and pads easily rinse clean...
Cleans pads to like new condition
I love this product. Simply mix one scoop with 3-4 gallons of water at the beginning of your detail. Then just throw in your pads as you use them. Let them soak for 20 minutes, then rinse with plain water. That's it. Polishes and waxes break down and easily wash out of the pad and leaves them clean and ready for the next detail session. You may need to scrub a little if a product is caked onto the pad. I always make sure I have plenty on hand.

Best pad cleaner I've used. Its much nicer to let the pads soak rather than have to spray them and wash them out.
worked well for me
This product works just as it says it does. I dropped in 1oz with 2 gallons of water. I made up the solution as my first pad was redy to be changed. from there I just dropped in my other pads when they needed to be changed. the pads were very dirty as I had Poorboy's SSR2.5 and Klasse all in one on them. I let the pads sit in the solution for 20-25 minutes. when it came time to clean them I ran them under warm water and used my thumb to remove the dirt and prduct. this stuff worked great for me. it saved me a ton of time as I usually clean the pads by hand.
