No, they don't. As a matter of fact, this is the same procedure followed by A.S.S also. Spray, leave for 15 mins and run blower. If you DIY, you can dismantle a/c grilles and insert a cloth into the vents for a more thorough job

You probably ended up using too much, which is why this happened.

You can clean it by hand with a light detergent. If you decide to machine wash, wash only with other microfibers.

I use 'Genteel' liquid detergent!

some brush action might be needed for tough stains

I wash in hot/warm water depending upon the dirt on the towel!

Polish and then wax is recommended, no harms at all. Just that polish is not as often as wax, once in 2-3 months only

No idea dude!

I looked like all over Delhi for DA polisher!

I took a photo along too, but no-one had even the slightest idea that such a thing even existed!! (everyone kept showing me the rotary buffer)

After a lot of explaining to loads of ppl related to this industry, I finally got a lead that allegedly 3M, Gurgaon might be having the DA polisher!

regarding its sponge pads, I made one myself to use with the rotary polisher!

I was showing it the other day to this bodyshop guy and he said that such ready made pads are available!

(his description of the pads quite closely matched the 'lake country' brand pads I have seen on websites)

I hope I get my hands on one of these soon!
