    I searched as scottwax advised I do, and nothing came up. I have dried SSR and Optimum polish on my pads, whats the easiest and best way to remove it?

    Soak them in water/dish soap for around 30 minutes, gently wring out and rinse. Shake the excess water out of them and allow them to air dry.

    All over.
    I have a question similar to this. I'm hopefully getting a DA soon, so if I use it on a car with single stage paint and the pad turns the color of the car, is that pad safe to use again and/or safe to use on another car?

    The paint may permanently change the color of the pad but if you wash any build-up out of the pad, you can reuse it.

    If you don't have to clean your pads out alot (where buying specific pad cleaners would add up quick) then I'd try this stuff called "Snappy Clean". It is pretty amazing, and its still pretty cheap. http://www.autogeek.net/snappytool.html
