As you probably know, our new Wheel Polishing Kit contains not only the very cool DynaCone Polisher, but the new All Metal Polish and Foam Pad Cleaner One-Step, each in 4 ounce sizes. We also introduced the All Metal Polish as an 8 ounce stand alone product but have yet to do so with the Foam Pad Cleaner One-Step. Of course, this product by itself is generating a lot of buzz due to it's highly effective cleaning ability after polishing bare metal, as shown in this thread (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46198).

So, if we do introduce Foam Pad Cleaner One-Step as a separate product, what size do you think makes the most sense? What size would you be most interested in?

Take the poll above, and feel free to chime in with any comments as well.

If I remember correctly from the original thread, this Foam Pad Cleaner is specifically for cleaning the Dynacone and is not recommended for use with the standard Soft Buff pads. This would be my indicator of how often I would use the product - if it was a general pad cleaner for all foam (including Soft Buff) then I'd say the bigger the better as I'd be using it quite often.

However, as it's a Dynacone specific product, and you'll need +-1oz for each time you clean the Dynacone, my vote goes to the 10oz option. For normal consumer use, the wheel polishing kit won't be used on a weekly basis, and probably less than once a month. A 10oz bottle will give you 10 "cleans" and for the average consumer will last for more than a year.

Obviously if you are polishing wheels for customers then you'll need a lot more cleaner and will probably be wanting the cleaning solution in Mirror Glaze size options.

As was previously stated, if this would clean all foam pads then the bigger, the better.

How would you clean the dynacone if you run out of the cleaner?

Assuming this is compatible for all pads, I would say the biggest size possible, for this reason:

Bigger size bottle almost always = less cost per ounce. Since something like a pad cleaner would be viewed as a "luxury item" since you can do the job with soap and water, I would want to spend as little on it per ounce as possible. I'm assuming it will have some magical ingredients that really help break down spent product and residue that clings to the inside of the foam. I've used products like DP Foam Pad Cleaner/Rejuvinator, and while they do work very well, they just seem like alot of money spent on something I can do just as easily (albeit, with slightly more work) without such expensive products.
