    this on the fly method only works with not dried product. you should do this right after compounding when the pad is "wet"

    I usually hit the pad with the airgun from my compressor. It blows most of the product right out.
    If its fast, loud, and runs on a flammable liquid...count me in.

    There was either a Saturday class or Thursday open garage where there was a pad washer that was used. If I remember correctly, there was supposed to be a review, but I never saw one? Anyone have any experience with these?

    Do the soft buff 2.0 require different washing techniques than previously explained? Are they machine washable? Not that it is a big deal. I will probably try the garden hose method.

    Alcohol?

    Is that rough on the pads?

    I'm not familiar with the 2.0 pads yet, but I see no reason why they can't be machine washed.

    However, I think I'd rather do them by hand myself.
