As many of us rely on hand polishes as opposed to using rotary's/porter cables, I thought this might interest a few of you:

ive had a bottle of super resin polish in my bedroom for ages , i got it with an autoglym set i bought, i never used it because i never realised it would remove swirl marks from my car, and my car is covered in swirls,

im gunna give it a go now,

i just wondered wot sort of cloth he used to apply the srp ???

It will do if its a new cotton cloth - just stick it in the wash for a rinse, then the tumble drier - and no more fluff.

Got mine from the wholesalers for buttons - because you'll go through them like no-ones business, drying car, drying QD, buffing polish, buffing wax...certainly a fair few.
