adams's hand applicators

does anyone/or Dylan know if they are machine washable? i used the all purpose cleaner to try to get the wax out but it seems very stubborn. or maybe soak it in some APC and let it sit?

They should come clean with APC no problem, but if you let them sit after use and the product dries then soaking them in a bucket of clean water with a few capfuls of APC will help break it up.

What exactly isn't coming out of the pad? Just polish/wax residue??

I typically don't wash my hand wax pads. Other applicators (tire, trim yes-that junk is so oily and dirty) but i like to keep my wax pad dedicated to just that and see no reason to get the wax out. Perhaps i'm a different case though b/c I use my pad daily. Not to mention, Adams wax smells so good, why clean it out!?!?!

maybe im over-reacting because i can still smell the wax on the pad, but i guess that will happen regardless. ill soak it in a bucket with water/APC just to be safe
