    I use an old MF but it gets old, I can never get the results that I want. What do you all use?

    I use the yellow foam applicator and then wipe it off with a MFT.

    I just use a regular household sponge, then buff it off a few minutes later with an MF towel. The sponge really lets you get good coverage, especially if your dash is textured at all.

    someone on DC recommended the sculpted applicator pads from TOL so ordered some today...I can`t detail my dash or rear deck without getting the glass smeared.

    A cheapie foam paint brush. Usually one inch wide. I use the wedge end to get the edges and the wide flat sides for the wider part of the dash.

    I like to use a couple of MF pads and it works well to evenly spread whatever product I am using. Also works well getting into corners and against windows. Have to buy some more as they`ve become pretty crummy.

    Have been using a Viper foam tire dressing applicator. I found it too soft and flexible to use on tires, but it works well for dash dressing.

    I just picked up some of the Black Magic foam apps with the plastic backing. These should work nice for dressings etc. The backing should keep the dressing from leaking onto your hands.
