Might be an odd question but I purchased a 5.25" Optimun Polishing Microfiber pad from autopia carcare. With the intention of trying it out to see how I like it compared to other brands that I have used in the past.
I used the pad with a porter cable DA on 2 cars before a total failure of the pad. ( the microfiber separated from the foam backing) After the first car the pad was washed in a pad cleaning solution and then washed in the washing machine and air dried.
So is this a normal life for theses pads or did I receive a defect one?
