Greenway's Car Wash Pad

$4.50

 

 
  • Carries an abundance of soap and helps prevent frequent trips to the bucket

  • Perfect to use on the entire car or  as a dedicated lower section only sponge

  • Thick pad surface area for better control

  • 9” by 9” size is easy to handle

 

 

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 excellent when washing the entire vehicle or for lower sections only. If you prefer washing with our Microfiber Chenille Wash Mitt, use this mitt on the lower portions of the car to prevent any heavy debris contaminating your Microfiber Chenille Mitt. Lorene-Dynel synthetic fibers make this product long-wearing and super soft.

The wash pad can 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 to prevent the shampoo solution from drying before rinsing the vehicle.  We always suggest removing the wash pad from your favorite Greenway's shampoo solution after use. Doing so will help extend the life of the pad.

 

How to Use:

It is essential 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 your Greenway’s Wash Solution's foaming capabilities. Many people believe that rinsing a bucket out that had a 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.

We always recommend using a grit guard or a similar bottom bucket dirt separation device for the best results. Still, it 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 incredibly 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 induced by improper washing techniques. Suppose you use the same wash mitt/pad on the lower portions of a vehicle where heavy contamination can lay even after pre-rinsing the surfaces. In that case, this contamination can transfer from the bottom to the top of the surfaces, which can cause swirl marks, marring, and slight scratches.

After washing the entire vehicle and rising off, store your wash pad outside of the bucket and allow it to air dry. Keeping your wash pad immersed in water can cause the fibers' premature breakdown, especially when using a high pH stripping wash.

 

Tech Tip:

  • Use two dedicated wash buckets (one for the upper surfaces, one for the lower) or two different wash mitts/pads that vary in color for ease of recognition (one for lower panels, one for upper panels).

  • Never use a bucket that had contact with any silicone product. Silicone can significantly reduce the foaming capabilities of any wash solution.

  • Do not overuse the wash solution. Greenway’s Car Care wash solutions are incredibly concentrated, and a little goes a long way. Using a measuring cup dedicated to your wash solutions is an excellent, cheap, and quick way to monitor your wash solution usage.

  • A high-pressure wash can significantly affect the sudsy solution when compared to a standard garden hose pressure output. If you use a garden hose to fill your wash solution bucket, try to use a fireman’s nozzle or another type of high-pressure nozzle to get the most out of our wash solutions.

  • Washing in the sun can present difficult challenges. Using Greenway's Eco Wash is an excellent low foaming shampoo that is nearly self-rinsing and can help avoid water spots.

  • Wash solutions are a cheaper alternative to a clay bar lubricant spray. If your vehicle does not have severe contamination and observing the particles being removed from a clay lubricant's opacity is unnecessary, using a shampoo can yield excellent results. You can merely suds up the vehicle panels again after your main wash and rinse procedure and then start your clay process. Our shampoos will provide outstanding lubricity to allow the clay bar to slide on the clear-coated surface (Do not use a strip wash with a clay bar. This might lead to deterioration of the clay bar).

  • Using a dedicated soft body brush is an excellent choice to combine with your wash solution. Grille areas, openings around mirrors, and other crevices are tough to reach with a wash pad. Using an incredibly soft body brush with a short handle will help you get these areas while not marring the paint. This is an excellent method to use with Greenway's Bugs B Gone if insects are an issue.

  • If working outdoors in hot conditions where shade is not available, washing the one side of the vehicle that is not located in the sun will help reduce the chance for water spots and undesirable quick drying of the wash solution. You can then turn the vehicle around and wash the other side that is no longer in the direct sun.  While this technique might be somewhat of a hassle, it can be invaluable when conducting a  full detail, and extensive contamination removal is needed by utilizing a clay bar.
