I just got my new G110 polisher and the new washable pads, and have used them once. I was wondering are most of you going to wash these pad after every use, or just every so often. I guess I am asking, because these are machine washable, is it "recomended" to wash them after every use, or only when changing chemicals, or if they are very dirty?

Thanks for the reply Mark. I guess i will toss these pads in the washer then. Plus, I can try other products next time i get a chance to detail
Sorry for the late reply.
After a long detail, my pads tend to be saturated with product as well as paint particles from the detailing/buffing process. So in my case I tend to wash the new 2.0 pads after each detail. If they are lightly saturated, I place them in a 5 gallon bucket with warm water and Dawn soap. I wash them thoroughly and rinse thoroughly.
If the pads are really saturated, I throw them in the washing machine and use a combo if liquid Tide and Dawn soap. I do a double rinse and then dry.
As you can see from my original post at the beginning of this thread, I have had and used these pads for sometime now. I can not emphasize just how much I enjoy being able to throw them into the washing machine to clean them!!!!
So is it really ok to low heat dry the 2.0 pads after machine washing, or is air drying safer?
Sorry for the very late reply. I was waiting and hoping someone from Meguiar's management would provide the "official" response.
Anyway, I have machine washed and dried the pads many times. I have found that while using the dryer seems to be just fine, I think it may be stressing the pads more than necessary. Therefore, I now machine wash the pads and then I let them air dry for a few days.
A good way to dry your pads is if you just put them on a DA or rotary and put it on a high setting. You might want to do it outside though.
