The idea is great. In fact, the idea is a five star idea. The yellow pads, however, make this an avoid-at-all-costs product.

Here's the deal:
I used the product and was very happy. Ultimately, however, the pads get dirty and need cleaned. Having been using these micro-fiber applicator pads for years, I washed these as I have all my other applicator pads of similar design and construction, in the washing machine with all my other applicators and drying/wiping/buffing towels. The result rendered the pad useless.

The sponge is not sewn together with the cloth cover. During the wash the cover shrunk slightly and the sponge inside balled up. The only way to fix it would be to rip the seam open, fix it, and sew it back up. Not worth it.

The packaging may have said to hand wash these. Frankly, I do not recall (I mean really, who reads the packaging for an applicator sponge?). But if one has to hand wash these delicate butterflies after use then that's probably another reason to not make the purchase.

I have six of those Viking 862400 Blue Microfiber Wax Applicator pads which I purchased here at Amazon. They've seen many trips through the wash (Air dry them! Never use the dryer!) and have come out fine. Therefore, I cannot recommend the Carrand 40123 The Gripper Microfiber 5" Round Applicator Pads even though the idea is stellar.

I bought one of these a few years ago and use it for cleaning iPad and iPhone screens almost daily. It stays handily near the chargers. An extra pad (without the handle) goes in my iPad bag and travels with me. I have arthritic hands and the handle makes it extra easy to use, but it is still nice in the hand without the handle. The handle simply sticks itself on with minimal pressure - normal usage will secure it - (thankfully no glue or hook & loops) and it easily comes apart when you want to detach the pad. I use it with or without eyeglass cleaner, which is sprayed, lightly, onto the pad. Does a bang up job. I was looking for another to give as useful gifts and was so happy to find it here - thank you Amazon!

my old terry cotton applicator pads have kind of worn their course, and one of the things i hated about them was how easily they slipped from my hand only to fall on the floor. So when i came across these, i thought they'd be worth a shot. And they work beautifully! The gripper hand grip is perfect. i use these to apply Klasse Sealant Glaze on my car, and it makes the job so much easier. Highly recommend them!

I realized I wasn't getting lifelong products for the price you pay for this, but I hoped they would at least last longer than what it takes to wax my tiny car. One of the microfiber pads came apart mid waxing, though the other endured. These soak up a lot of product, and, in my opinion, are not worth your money. But as I said, you get what you pay for.

I was a little worried the gripper wouldn't hold the pads very tightly, but after doing both my truck and my wife's car, I can report that they do. I still prefer a nice microfiber towel myself, but these certainly get the job done. I would recommend.

This product is okay, but too small in my opinion. It is great for a "grip" on the pad which keeps you from getting cramps in your fingers, but would be much better if the base was larger to improve pad contact on the car/truck surface.

perfect for anyone who hand waxes any thing (which we all probably have to do some small part of the car without a rotary). the pads that come with this are bigger than the Chemical Guys pads by a little but the gripper is just as effective.
