Glass polishers go over glassware but do not remove dirt, detergent residue, grease or lipstick. Glassware must be completely clean. .
Hand contact with fiber brushes should be avoided. Oils from the hands will be absorbed and may cause poor results.
If the parts to be dried are very wet, place them on one of the fiber brushes near the fan to remove excess water, then continue buffing as usual.
Washing fiber brushes regularly will give better results. Use only neutral detergents and wash them by hand. Never use products like bleach. Make sure they are well rinsed and let them dry.
