    if you’re getting swirls from polishing, one might want to revisit what tools and techniques one is using.

    Swirls generally are the result of poor washing and/or drying technique....or a tendency to take ones vehicle through the car wash (unless its touchless). Depending on how significant the swirls are, polishing can remove them, not cause them.

    This.

    You shouldn't have swirls after you polish. If you do, you're doing something wrong.

    Try not to do it by hand. My guess is you’re doing it by hand. You’ll want an edgeless buffer towel to wipe it down after. It should come right off without too much pressure.
