This pad worked great! I found myself using less product with this pad also. Highly recommended!

It's just me, I wouldn't buy this again, but read on. This is a fine pad, good and strong, survises muliple washes and reuse. But, I'm likely to stick with Black for wax and Orange for Polish. However, this would be the perfect pad for applying a Cleaner Wax, or applying wax to a less-than-smooth surface. For those two reasons, it's good to have around. Otherwise, I'd want more cut for polish and less for wax.

Great pad for waxes. I use it with the Dodo Supernatural and even with the small 30ml size container, I can get all the wax I need onto this pad. This pad is as good as it gets.

Like the size and density of the red pads. Just need to be aware that they do retain a little more product than the thinner yellow variety. Clean up nicely in the wash. Much prefer them to microfiber cloth pads wrapped around a foam center. Plan to buy 4 more for different products applications.

This applicator is unlike the rest. "How so?" you ask in quiet hushed tones. BECAUSE IT IS RED! Not only is it defying social conventions of yellow wax applicator pads, it is better, stronger, more masculine, pure Commie fighting American pride! I'm not sure if these were made in America, but you can tell they want to be! They stand for everything America stands for, soaking up a bunch of chemicals and spreading a thin layer of it everywhere. You might ask, wasn't the color for communism red? WRONG. If this was communist red the only thing it would spread on the car is evil. Then you might ask, "Why does it matter if my wax applicator is Proletariat or not?" Well it should, unless you hate bald eagles. Because bald eagles love these applicators as they are the perfect size for holding in one's hand, and wash clean every time you run them through a clean creek or sink. They are capitalist so the applicators do tend to hold on to a little excess product, and after many a patriotic waxing, require a deep cleaning. Buy these for America, Chick Norris for president.

Great pad to apply waxes and sealents

Useful pad that is stronger than the 3 for $.99 you get at the auto store. If you don't like to apply wax with your bare hand, this is the next best thing.

Much better than the generic yellow foam. It is great for applying Klasse sg. You can squeeze it if you need more product instead of applying more after every pass. I dont think absorption is a problem but more of a tool especially on wheels when you can twist the pad around the spokes, the product can ooze out when you need it.

I dont like their ccs buffing pads but love this little red pad!

I used this recently for the first time with final sealant and am impressed - good pad that is now dedicated to that step of the process for me.

thought the pad did a great job of holding plenty of product that allowed me to get panels done much faster. nice size in hand and spreads product evenly across panels. maybe not as good as my polishing pal red pads, but much better than cheap yellow foam pads that come with many OTC products. used with Poorboy's Liquid Natty's Blue on one car and Mother's 100% Carnuaba on another. both products went on like butter. will buy more when needed.

For some things this pad is too absorbant but it works great for spot touch ups and small areas.

I read in the reviews that the Lake Country Red Foam Applicator Pad absorbed too much product and so I kept it away from my expensive wax and instead used it to apply my wheel sealant. It is nice and soft and easy to use. If it absorbed to much wheel sealant then I didn’t notice.

Good pads, have only been using one for a couple weeks so not sure about the longevity but so far so good. Many people said that it absorbs too much product but I don't seem to be having that problem.

the pad is pretty good, but it absorbs some product after a while. might want to try spray some way on the pad prior to using it so not as much product is absorbed. but overall pretty good pad, i like how theres holes on the pad so product can sit there and applied onto the car by giving the pad some pressure.

Good pads.
I used this applicator yesterday with EZ~CREME GLAZE.
Dry pad absorb to much product. so I sprayed water on this pad and then applyed ez~creme glaze on the surface of my car. wet pads doesn't absorb too much product.
I like softness of this pad. I ordered a lot more.

I love these pads their so soft and plush. I didn't feel that they absorbed that much product. Will be ordering a lot more soon.

They work fine but do absorb more than I liked. I'm not yet completely disappointed and have only them once so I will give them another try. quality seems way better than free pads so I'm sure you'll be able to use these a few times before having to replacing them

I like the fact that this pad can hold a lot of wax so I don't have to keep adding some. I can finish a fender in one swipe of the carnauba paste wax.

I have used these for my last few applications and am very happy with them. They hold in a fair amount of product but seem to help me go longer without stopping to re-apply product to the pad.

Much better then other cloth pads. Did not absorb or make it go on like icing. Wax went on smooth and I did not waste any because of the pad. Also with glaze it worked very well. I threw all my other fabric pads away after I used this product.

Used this product yesterday with Jet Seal 109. I agree with Nicholas below in that it REALLY absorbed too much product. I eventually switched to a DI yellow foam applicator and had MUCH better results. With this pad, I was applying way too much product. Oh well, live and learn.

Great pads, so everyone knows you are supposed to apply wax/polish to the side with the craters , it is lake country's ccs tech. helps reduce wasted product etc...

The pads are nice and thick, but I think they absorb to much product. They are much better than the garbage you get for free, but are not as nice as the Pinnacle foam pads. I pay great attention to my cost per application and I have found that the Pinnacle pads help me apply the right amount of product. If you are not concerned with that these pads are easy to use and easy to clean.
