    check this out.. http://www.autogeek.net/dual-action-polisher.html

    click the intermediate swirl removal vid.

    i used my PC for months and thought.. "this thing sucks :hsugh:"

    until i watched the vid and figured out i wasn't breaking down the polish all the way :o

    it should just be a residue with no haze really

    It typically clears out as it breaks down. Another way to tell is if the polish is difficult to remove, you didn't work it long enough.

    how "easy" should it be? I did a wipe, and it wasn't difficult? but should it be like...dry? wiping dust? or wiping, say wax that has dried?

    If it is dusty, you buffed it a little too long. Just takes practice. As it clears out, stop buffing.
