Step 2: Select the Correct Polish or Compound
Choose a suitable polish or compound that matches the desired level of correction for the surface you are working on. Refer to the product documentation or consult with a professional if you are unsure about the appropriate product to use.
Step 3: Attach the Mint Foam Cut 1" Pad
Attach the Mint Foam Cut 1" Pad (Green) to your polishing machine. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for attaching the pad securely. Ensure that the pad is centered and properly aligned with the backing plate.

Apply a small amount of the chosen polish or compound directly onto the Mint Foam Cut 1" Pad. Be cautious not to use excessive product, as a little goes a long way.
Step 5: Spread the Product
Spread the polish or compound evenly across the surface to be polished. Use slow and controlled movements to ensure an even application. Apply light to moderate pressure, allowing the pad to do the work.
Step 6: Start Polishing
Turn on your polishing machine and begin polishing the surface using the Mint Foam Cut 1" Pad. Move the pad in overlapping passes, covering a small area at a time. Maintain a consistent speed and pressure throughout the process.
Step 7: Monitor the Progress
Regularly inspect the surface to monitor the progress of the polishing. Check for any desired improvements and adjust your technique or product application if necessary. Take breaks to prevent overheating the surface or the pad.
Step 8: Wipe Off Excess Residue
Once you have achieved the desired level of correction, wipe off any excess residue left on the surface using a clean microfiber cloth. This will reveal the polished finish and remove any remaining product.
Step 9: Clean and Maintain the Pad
After each use, clean the Mint Foam Cut 1" Pad thoroughly with a pad cleaner or mild soap and water. Rinse it well and allow it to air dry completely before storing. Proper maintenance will extend the lifespan of the pad.
