Don't use a buffer. I use old t-shirts. Put about a teaspoon full on the shirt
and then rub the area about half the size of your sunroof (just like you would
if you didn't have a glass sunroof, or your roof will be about 3-4 areas. Just
use some elblow grease going back and forth, you'll see the effect that it has.
You'll pick it up right away.

Then have another t-shirt right there and wipe it off immediately. Don't let it

The rag you use to apply the HD-cleanse will quickly become the color of your
paint and dirty. I change mine at least once during the cleaning processes.
