As above, use cotton if you wish but microfibres are generally much better when it comes to cleaning cars. The fibres are split which means they grab onto things very efficiently, cotton tends to...

Not used them but there are the fancy sealants which you spray on and then blast with a pressure washer. Seems to be a few aerosols sealants as well, again not used them but they seem easy to use.

That looks like a nice pad for applying a wax or sealant but for a QD I would suggest trying a cloth. Should be much easier and quicker i.e. spray-wipe-done
