    when it comes to cleaning pads you can just toss them in the sink and run them under warm water. scrub them with your hands and press the water out frequently and continue this until it is clean. the pad must be dry to use polishing products. so to dry them if you have compressed air i wich is always helpful for car detailing. blow the air over the pad getting close to the pad with the nozzle. dont go overboard on the pressure you dont want to rip the pad. now if you dont have air then its not as easy to dry so well. getting a microfiber towel and squeezing the pad in the pad to try and get a lot of the water out. you can also brush the top of it with the towel to remove contaminates. if you do have a micro fiber cutting pad the air works very well also get a small brush the stand the fibers up on the pad. if your pads are just too dirty they need to be replaced. i wouldnt throw them out tho becuase they can still be useful just not on paint. like metal work or in the engine bay.

    hi im more than happy to help. first off the 105 is an ultra cut polish. meaning its very abrasive. i your looking for removing swirls i dont recommend it. also when it comes to orbital and DA polishers i recommend to everyone the DA. being a pro i know how to use an orbital but 90% of the time i dont use it. most of the time it makes my process longer because then i have to go back and remove the swirls it puts in with an even finer polish that i wouldn't have to necessarily use before with a DA. its true that a DA has less cutting power than an orbital buffer but if you mix a DA with a microfiber cutting pad its easily powerful enough to hand any task you can throw at it and again wont burn through paint. the orbital isnt so much the basics as much just a better tool in most casses.
