Refine finish with a foam pad or microfibre pad and polish
Add a small amount of dish washing detergent to a 5 gallon bucket and fill it with water.
Soak the dirty pad for up to 30 minutes.
After soaking, massage the pads to work out the caked in polish.
Squeeze out the soapy water.
Empty and refill the bucket with fresh water.
Rinse the pads in the bucket of fresh water, squeeze, and set aside to air dry.
Washing machines often do not remove all of the residue and some washing liquids leave behind small amounts of residue.
Tumble driers can deform the pads and sometimes even damage the cell structure and on microfibre pads, the heat will soften the glue which hold microfibre to its backing.
