before



cleaning



Several months of dirt after



You won't regret it, believe me. People think I'm lying when I tell them it's 28 years old.

Jared , What did you use to apply zep wet look ? I started to use white microfiber rags and I was getting to much lint in the coverage and looked really bad so I washed them first and dried them but haven't used them yet . I want it to look good but having trouble ! Wes

Mine were microfiber. I didn't wash them first, but I should have. They didnt leave any lint, but they were colored, and it came out in the polish. I ended up rinsing it in two containers of polish before most of the color quit coming out. Luckily, the camper isn't neon green.

I found out that you should wash the new microfiber rags FIRST before you use them !!! No more lint in the finish . Wes

Wes has it right. You wouldn't use a wash cloth or bath towel on your skin before washing them first ... why would you want to use it on your trailer's skin before washing first

In fact, because you're sealing those fibers into the polish, I'd wash them several times first! YMMV
