    i tried soaking the pads in hot soapy water then rinsing them off, and i scrubbed the velcro backing plate with a toothbrush - but the pads still dont stick well to the backing plate. thoughts?

    What backing plate do you have? The 5" Meguiars BP is notorious for getting hot and losing grip on the pads.
