Move the grid extension to the area marked on "Dry Pads Here" and work the pad
against it to remove excess water.
One of the biggest problems with buffing pads today lies in their backing pad and its tendency to separate from the pad. The major cause of this failure is from hand washing your polishing pads. When you hand wash pads, the backing pad gets wet, over saturating the foam. The Universal Pad Washer keeps the backing pads dry and extends the life of your pads. No more throwing away perfectly good pads because the backing pad has torn off.
Conditions wool pads
If you've ever used a brand new wool pad, you can appreciate the convenience of a tool that conditions the pads. By conditioning your new wool pads, you extract the loose fibers from the pad, keeping your paint free of excess wool fibers.
Use Pad Cleaner

Pad Cleaner leaves pads clean and new!
Pad Washer Cleaning Tips:
- Keep the pad’s hook-n-loop or Velcro® brand backing out of the water when using the
Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer.
-When using a dual action polisher, make a mark on the backing plate with a permanent marker.
This mark will indicate to you when the pad has made a full rotation. If it is not rotating,
lighten up your pressure.
- Fill with the appropriate level of water. Press down on the grid insert until the springs are fully
compressed. Fill until the water level reaches just above the Insert. When you press down
on the grid insert with the polisher, the springs will pump water upwards to the pad.
- Always operate the pad washer with the Splash Guard closed.
- For heavily soiled pads, spin the pad in the pad washer for 10 seconds to thoroughly wet it.
Then spray on the Chemical Guys Pad Cleaner Pad Renewing Solution and let it penetrate for
1 minute. Then use the pad washer again to clean the pad.
- Always use the Dual Action Pad Washer with the polisher on its lowest setting for cleaning.
You can use a slightly higher setting for drying.
- Move the polisher around inside the pad washer to be sure all parts of the pad are cleaned.
