    Re: How do YOU remove wax/sealants from paint?

    It really depends. I voted MF towel by hand. I use the MF when polishing because you need to remove the polish right away and are working in small sections. If I apply a wax or sealant to the whole car like NXT for example, I use the MF bonnet on the DA. Using the Bonnet over a pad just slows down the process while polishing. IMO.

    i voted for micro fiber by da. I remove the wax sealant with the da and a bonnet then do a final slower wipe down with a micro fiber by hand.

    Do you find that using the DA with the MF bonnet that it leaves residue since it builds up quickly?

    I have several bonnets but never use them because I figured it WOULD build up too quickly.

    Microfiber towels by hand for me. But sometimes I still use 100% cotton terry cloths.

    ^^ Me too. The MF does the bulk of the work, but I like to use a terry cloth for the final wipe.

    I seem to get better "feeling" through a terry cloth which I like during the final wipe. They also slide over the newly waxed surface better!

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Both. I usually use a bonnet on the DA but I always follow that with a MF.
