Its tons slicker and easier to apply when used on a wet car as a drying aid - so perhaps try using a damp mf to apply BSD to a dry car ?

Your right it is. Found that out today. Much better when wet.

I mix my BSD with a little PB spray and shine and it takes the grabbiness out of it. Can't say I've ever felt it clog a MF but then I always wash them after each use.

If you are clogging yer MF with BSD, you are possibly either using too much product, or not folding and rotating your on/off MFs.

If I do whole car, I use 3 MFs folded (therefore 8 clean sides per MF). 1 to apply, 1 to remove, 1 to final wipe - panel by panel.

I suspect it over applied. Less is more!

My three bottles arrived today. It would appear that Sonax have finally improved the spray heads!

It now "sprays" out the bottle rather than "squirts" out.

Could you pop a pic of the new spray head up please, so we all know what to expect
