The soft, open-cell foam Black Foam Finger Pockets make waxing and sealing your vehicle much easier. They slip over your fingers providing control as you apply wax or sealant. This method is alot less messy that using a small round applicator pad. There is more coverage with these than a round applicator pad. The finishing pockets are over your fingers as opposed to having to hold on to the applicator pad. They can be washed with McKee's 37 Polishing Pad Cleaner after each use. Or, in the washing machine.
