that's a regular applicator to apply, just put same wax and start rubbing. for buffing i use some microfiber towels I got at another place.

Some waxes and sealants require micro fiber applicators, some don't. I like to use the "handi grip" applicator.Handi grip
It is easy to hold and spreads waxes and sealants really even. I bought 8 of them so I have a different applicator for each product I use.
Make sure you use a "quality" microfiber to remove the waxes and sealants. I now only use SOnus Der wonderful buffing towel.
It is really really soft.
Once again I bought 4 packages(2 in each package so I don't mix the towels up with different products) I am serious, try these buffing towels you will love them!!
Hope this has helped
Jon

I am a Griot's Garage fan myself. I have had very good experiences with almost all their products.
