I'm interested in knowing too. So far I use the new ones on the wind shield, painted areas until dirty then eventually use them on chrome rims until they are totally dirty. I would love to recycle if possible.
I have found that they don't clean well at all. I usually just buy new ones. They are pretty cheap. Have even tried the high temp sanitizing cycle on the electrolux washer, and, they still don't work like a new one. Hope someone has the secret for Us.
Silver does hide defects well!The only thing I use mine on is my windshield. And as for the paint on the bike, that is why I don't have a black bike. Silver hides it well
I know what you mean. Its like when people think they are being funny writing "Wash Me" on the side of your car. Then when you finally do, it is etched in the side of your car and it is time to pull out the polish. I have a black truck done good by it for the first few months, then I just said I quit.Silver does hide defects well!
Nothing wrong with using a microfiber on paint; actually that's preffered. Just don't do it dry. Pledge, a waterless wash solution, or a quick detail spray to lubricate. Bonus points if you use a damp microfiber. Gets it clean without leaving any marring! I have a black car and it has very few marring/ultra-fine scratches; the ones that are there are from snow and ice sliding off. I'll polish them off of the clearcoat in the spring.
As a matter of fact, I wash it a couple times a week (at least) with microfiber towels. I fold them into 8 sections and wipe only once and do each panel with one section; and use lots of waterless wash solution. I live in an apartment and don't have a hose. Works great!
