How many times do you replace the "Clean" MF as after used to pick up the softened grease etc its then contaminated also

so is it a new "Clean" MF per pannel?

Thanks for posting.

I always wondered how the muck was supposed to mysteriously vanish from the surface.

It just didn't sound right that it "flashed off" with the panel wipe. I couldn't see how that would happen.

Now I know - it doesn't, it has to be removed (quickly).

Cheers.

Andy.

Just use some initiative to decide when to change the MF because it will depend on how much polish residue or oils are left on the paintwork after polishing, the size of the car etc.

I use the BH Cleanser Fluid, which always seems to flash off, will try using more and working a smaller area, thanks for the advice!

Any recommendations on a good panel wipe to use once I have finished the bottle of BH. It’s a bit expensive to keep using BH as it doesn’t go very far. Thanks
