Cheap polishing mops and compounds are a false economy. Good quality compound should have a high concentration of abrasive grit held in a suitable waxy matrix. When applied to a thick, tightly stitched sisal or calico polishing mop they give a fast cut, excellent control and a uniform finish.
We recommend British made Canning-Lippert polishing compounds, which have outperformed everything else we've tried. Our Calico mops have thick leather supports and riveted staple construction, guaranteed to be free of folds, seams and creases they will deliver many years of reliable service.
