    ................ why exactly is that?

    When applying polish or wax, they always say to rub in the direction of airflow. Is there a reason for this? :)

    Minimizes the chance of swirling your paint.

    Why would rubbing exclusively back and forth cause any less swirls than exclusively side to side?

    I can understand if you did both, but either way if done exclusively should work just fine.......... right?

    I don't see a reason why you couldn't do it another way, as long as you consistently did it the same way.

    The reason is as follows: Under certain lighting conditions either inside or out, any damage to the surface in a streight line is not as apt to be noticed by your eyes as easy as a circle ( Spider web scratches-circles).
