you soak the paper in water for at least 15 min prior to use (it will usually roll up into a little burrito), unroll it and sand with it. Make sure you have a spray bottle to keep the surface you are sanding wet. You can also put a drop of soap in the bucket while soaking the paper and in the spray bottle for extra lube.

I agree dont clear just sand and buff I do about 5 6 sets a week 1000 2000 high speed buff high speed polish then put wax on them they will stay a long time if you keep wax on them

even without regular wax.... once you SAND off the oxidation and defects there is no way for them to come back, I mean you removed them lol. Now granted overtime they will go back to where you started, but realistically that will take years...
