'' BLACKFIRE Paint Cleaner can be applied equally well by hand or dual action machine. By hand, it should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint one panel at a time using a Meguiar's Even Coat Microfiber Applicator Pad. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per panel, and these should be worked in well in an overlapping fashion until only a thin film remains. The film should then be buffed off immediately using a PB Super Buffing Towel. By dual action polisher, BLACKFIRE Paint Cleaner should be applied using a Lake Country Hydro-Tech Finishing Pad. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per panel, and these should be worked in thoroughly at around 3000-4000 orbits per minute (speed 3-4 on most dual action machine polishers) until only a thin film remains. This film should then be buffed off immediately using a PB Super Buffing Towel. ''

ive used it by hand as they say and not had a problem

Not sure how thick to put it on, nor how long to leave to dry.

Seem to have to always rub as though my life depends on it to buff off again?

It’s not the cleaner, it’s the ‘old’ polish which I now can’t see on PolishedBliss ....

Small amount as per normal, work it in well, remove immediately. Don't try to do too large of an area in one go, don't leave it dry. It will do its job nicely

Thx

Interestingly, on various places it seems I am using too much/too little depending on the site!!

Will try thinner use and immediate removal again.

If you can work it in so it is "thin" and opaque that's the right amount worked for the right amount of time. Remove and carry on the next set
