Greenway's Wash Pad carries tons of suds, is super soft, measures 9" by 9" and will not scratch or swirl the most delicate surfaces. This pad works great when washing the entire vehicle or for lower sections only. If you prefer washing with our Microfiber Chenille Wash Mitt, this mitt could be utilized on the lower portions of the vehicle in order to prevent any heavy debris contaminating your Microfiber Chenille Mitt. Lorene-Dynel synthetic fibers make this product long-wearing and super soft.
We feel that the wash pad is able to transfer more shampoo solution to the paint quicker than a microfiber mitt/pad. This wash pad is excellent to use when working in sunny conditions in order to help prevent the shampoo solution drying before rinsing the vehicle. We always suggest removing the wash pad from your favorite Greenway's shampoo solution after use. This will help extend the life of the pad.
How to Use
It is important to start with a clean wash bucket. This wash bucket should have never had silicone in the bucket. Silicone is typically used in tire dressings and can cause issues with the foaming capabilities of your Greenway’s Wash Solution. Many people believe that rinsing a bucket out that had wheel and tire brushes located in the bucket is good enough, but this is the furthest from the truth. Always start with a dedicated wash bucket that has never had contact with any silicone-based product.
Using a grit guard or another similar type of bottom bucket dirt separation device is always recommended for best results but is not always necessary depending on specific services you will be performing on a vehicle.
Place a few ounces of wash solution into the bucket and fill to the appropriate level with a high-pressure wash. Do not overuse any Greenway’s wash solution as they are extremely concentrated and a little goes a long way. Dip your wash pad into the wash solution and began washing the vehicle from top to bottom. We suggest always using two wash buckets or two different colored wash mitts/pads to avoid contamination. Many of your paint defects are actually induced by improper washing techniques. If the same wash mitt/pad is used on the lower portions of a vehicle where heavy contamination can lay even after pre-rinsing the surfaces, this contamination can be transferred from the bottom to the top of the surfaces which can cause swirl marks, marring and fine scratches.
After washing the entire vehicle and rising off, simply store your wash pad outside of the bucket and allow to air dry. Keeping your wash pad immersed in water can cause premature breakdown of the fibers especially when using a high pH stripping wash.
