    I was wondering what most people are using to apply their sealants by hand. I have MF applicator pads and foam pads. I know the foam pads are great for waxing, but what about applying a sealant? My bottle of 4* UPP says to apply two dime size drops to a foam pad. I always just assumed the best to use was the MF, although I can see where it would absorb lots of product. What`s the best to use?

    I like Meg`s Even Coat Applicators for applying #21, EX, and EX-P. They help spread the sealant over the finish evenly and very thinly.

    I was using Clearkote MF applicators but found they used to much product, back to yellow foam hand pads now.

    I`ve been using MF applicators -- I tend to use a bit more product on the MFs since some seeps into the pad. I`m going to try the foam pads next!

    When doing it by hand, I use the MF applicators. The only thing I use foam for is my Souveran.

    Yellow foam pads for me, but for Tropi-Care TC-3 I use a MF applicator.

    I`ve been cutting a Meguiar`s ultimate wipe into pieces, and applying wax and sealants by hand. I cut the ultimate wipe into strips, fold into .25`s and have found that I really prefer using "cloth" this way over foam.

    Another vote for Meguiars foam hand pads. I never use mf pads to apply product.

    I test for Optimum, Clearkote, Meguiars

    Are you talking about these?

    These are okay to apply sealant with as well?

    I have come to prefer foam pads for LSPs.
