  Chemical Guys IAI_507_3 - Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer with Pad and Wool Cleaner

Why Buy This Product?

  • Cleans and dries all types of buffing pads
  • Works with virtually any machine
  • Convenient and efficient way to clean pads
  • Adjustable to accommodate any pad size
  • Complete with Pad Cleaner and Wool Cleaner



How it Works
The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer is the first and only pad washer that cleans and dries all types of buffing pads on virtually any machine. The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer cleans foam pads, wool pads, hex-logic pads, convoluted foam pads and buffing bonnets. This pad washer works with virtually any machine including Flex, DeWalt, Porter Cable, Black and Decker, Hitachi, Rupes, any Dual Action machine and many more. Washing machines can destroy and deteriorate foam and wool pads. The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer does not require electricity to clean pads, all you need is the power already produced by your polisher machine. The rotation of the polisher agitates and cleans the pad in seconds. Simply insert the pad into the universal pad washer, turn on your polisher and let the grid insert clean and dry your buffing pads. The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer prolongs the life of your polishing and buffing pads.





Keep Your Pads Clean & Dry
One of the biggest problems with buffing pads today lies in their backing pad and its tendency to separate from the pad. The major cause of this failure is from hand washing your dirty polishing pads. When pads are hand washed, the backing pad get wet which over saturates the foam. Which causes the backing to separate from the pad. The Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer keeps the backing of pads dry while extending the life of your pads. No more throwing away perfectly good pads because the backing has torn off.

Pad Cleaner
The Foam & Wool Citrus-Based Pad Cleaner is a citrus-based cleaner and conditioner that contains citrus degreasing agents that break up oil and eliminates every last trace of residue. From wax, polishes, glazes, compounds, dressings and grease - the pad cleaner leaves pads clean and new and ready to be used again.




Pad Washer Cleaning Tips
  • Keep the pad's hook n loop or Velcro brand backing out of the water when using the pad washer.
  • When using a dual-action polisher, make a mark on the backing plate with a permanent marker - this mark will indicate to you when the pad has made a full rotation. If it is not rotating, lighten up your pressure.
  • Fill with the appropriate level of water. Press down on the grid insert until the springs are fully compressed. Fill until the water level reaches just above the insert. When you press down on the grid insert with the polisher, the springs will pump water up towards the pad.
  • Always operate the pad washer with the splash guard closed.
  • For heavily soiled pads, spin the pad in the pad washer for 10 seconds to thoroughly wet it. Then spray on the Chemical Guys Pad Cleaner and let it penetrate for 1 minute. Then use the pad washer again to clean the pad.
  • Always use the pad washer with the polisher on its lowest setting for cleaning.
  • Move the polisher around the inside of the pad washer to be sure all parts of the pad are cleaned.

great accessory April 16, 2014
Reviewer: Stephen Michalski from Syracuse, NY United States  
Works fast. Pays for its self quick.  Get you done fast so you can get get back to driving your ride. It is a little small for 9" wollies though.  But still works its magic on them.

Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer February 17, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Jose, CA United States  
I have had my Porter Cable 7424 XP around 2 years. It is rarely used. Reason being I did not like cleaning the padsmandmfelt they were never really clean. I read severalmreviewsnon the UPW and decided to give it a try. That in combination with the Chemical Guys Pad Cleaner made pad so much easier. The first time I cleaned my pads I had a little moremwater outside of the bucket than desired. Once I lowered the water level it was great. My pads come really clean in less than a minute using the Pad Washer. The firstmpad I cleaned were 2 pads that I had not cleaned since my last session. I just left them in a plastic. They came out great. Great product for me. I love it when something performs as advertised.

Easiest way to clean pads January 6, 2014
Reviewer: Gonzo from Randolph, MA United States  
A bit skeptical about the ease of wash that was being claimed but there's no comparison! Washing by hand is tedious and I never felt as though the pads were washed completely (not to mention they would be soaked). The pad washer cleans and dries your pad better period. Plus you can wash as you work meaning less pads to use.  A tad pricy for a bucket, some springs and a grit guard (hence the four stars) but IMO it's well worth the investment.

Very efficient August 22, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fresno, CA United States  
I am new to detailing and my car needed several passes with the D.A.  This product was very easy to use and sped the process up considerably.  The pads look great after just a few moments on the washer.
