I have both the blue and this black microfiber applicator pad. I used the black to apply some Clutch to my Tacoma since my blues were in the wash and it did great. Not as thick as the blue ones, but certainly did an excellent job. Way less product soaking into the pad like some other pads I've used in the past do.
We use this black applicator pad in our shop and it works great for applying dressing to all types of trim and our favorite it using it for tires! It levels out the tire dressing great and doesn't fall apart like most foam applicators! Great value!
