    Is there anything else these can be used for? I used to only use them to apply #7/Vanilla Moose, but now I'm switching to the basic foam applicator.

    I use my terry cloth applicators along with the regular Moose Wax to remove tar from customer's cars when I wash them. That way, I remove the tar and rewax at the same time and terry cloth applicators have more bite than foam to remove tar.

    Alright, thanks! You still use the foam applicators for basic Vanilla Moose/Final Polish, correct?

    I use foam pads for glazes and waxes.

    What's the difference between a glaze and a polish? Meguiar's calls #7 a glaze... does that mean that Vanilla Moose is a glaze, too?

    It says right on the bottle that Vanilla Moose is a glaze.

    There isn't always a difference between a polish and a glaze. Meguiars Show Car Glaze #7 and Hand Polish #81 both have super light abrasives but a lot of polishing oils and Meguiars rates them the same on their cutting power scale (extremely light). Wax Shop's Super Glaze is in fact a wax.

    Polish and glaze can be interchangible or completely different, depending on the manufacturer. Just go by how the cutting power is rated, not by the terms 'polish' and 'glaze'.

    I use terry applicators for tire dressings and the like. I use Meg's Endurance on my wife's car (yeah she likes glossy, greasy mess on her tires!), so they work great. Also for Vinylex, Zaino Leather in a bottle, etc. I have not done this yet, but when I detail my engine, I will use them for the hoses and plastic parts. Don't throw them away!!:nono:

    I have a bottle for show car glaze #7... can i replace it with vanilla moose or maybe use one after the other?

    and funny thing about my car... the driver's side door has an uniform amount of abrasion on it (i.e. moderate swirling, but it's consistent throughout the panel). the rest of the car is uniformly lightly swirled. It almost seems as if the driver's side door has been replaced, but the maintenance records don't note it.

    Shaka-#7 is fine and will work well in place of Vanilla Moose or S100's paint cleaner.
