How do you guys find the quality of the power ball? To me it looks as if it will tear those cellulose fingers out. Also are the waxers out there using the microfiber towels, they are the best! :)

Fixed your sig for you :)

I found that the figured started tearing after 1 use. I was not impressed at all and once again another "as seen on tv" does not do what it claims or work as it claims on tv. I found it just sprayed the polish on the car and everywhere else rather than buffing. And if you think about it! When you polish a rim you apply rim polish. It turns black and you use a CLEAN towel to remove and buff the area to a shine.

When you use the powerball the moment it touches the rim with the polish it turns BLACK. When you polish it you are just polishing the black off WITH a blacken miniball. Might not be so bad if you had 2 but either way I found it takes MUCH more time to use, more messy, and just unuseable for REGULAR shaped rims with spokes and mags.

NEVER polish your rims BEFORE you wash it!! You wash your rims first in order to get the dirty, brake dust, and contamenents off the rim first otherwise you risk scratch your rim.

Same goes for polishing your car BEFORE washing it. You want the surfact that you intend to apply pressure to, to be CLEAN and DIRT FREE. Otherwise you are turn your miniball + dirt = sandpaper.
