    I'm a newby and this answered so many of my basic questions. I thank you for all of the effort put into this article. You should have this as the first page in a newby forum.

    Very precise and instructive. Great reading!

    So we must be careful to read some "comparative"
    spread around the Internet.

    Yes, DC1 can be used.

    It will still be mild, but the pad will allow some minor defect removal, more than by hand.

    Still probably not the best choice for defect removal, fine for regular cleaning.

    Great thanks . I was thinking of using it on a new car detail and car that has very fine swirls/cleaning. E.g cars I have detailed in the past that dont need u/c or swirl x but just a very mild cut.

    I would imagine as most people suggest do a test spot first then decide. In the uk they still stock dc01 and as I have 4 bottles left I would like to use it up.

    Is there anything to be gained by using all 3. starting with u/c/swirl x/dc01 other than more time? I have a friend who wants me to detail his porsche. Its not a daily drive so I have plenty of time to fit it in around my day job.

    Re: Let's talk about "Total Cut"

    It would be very rare to need all 3.

    You want the cleaner to leave a good finish, and UC may leave some marring on some paints, so you would want a milder cleaner to follow up. But would usually just need one or the other mild cleaners, not both.

    SwirlX is a cleaner/polish, so adds some oils that the other products dont. But following up with a proper pure polish (DC2) is going to be the best way to polishing oils on a show car.

    Re: Let's talk about "Total Cut"

    Great write up! Thanks. Now for the embarrassing thing I learned....I really never have purchased Mirror Glaze items but have seen them on the shelves. Never paid any attention to the red arrows....duh...what a neat idea and easily signals the cut of the product. Sure saves reading a lot of fine print and trying to determine exactly what it's trying to tell me.

    Thanks for your help, again .

    I have heard about that on some paint finishes uc can leave some marring. My plan is to follow with dc02 followed by nxt tech wax 2.0 and gc carnuba plus when it finally lands in the uk!!. For now it will be 2 coats of nxt tech wax 2.0.

    I would imagine since the launch of u/c and swirl x there really is no use/need for dc01.

    Some people still want something milder that SwirlX, but the 'need' isnt really there.
