Swirl marks

Probably a repost BUT I DID SEARCH BEFORE WRITING THIS. Any advice on removing swirl marks from alpine white paint?

I like Chemical Guys Scratch and Swirl Be-gone too. Lots of good products out there.

Less than you'd think. It's not a super-aggressive combo, and if you sort out what's causing the swirls in the first place (ie, poor washing and drying), you could polish with just 106 and the blue pad to boost the gloss and remove light marring. That combo should be safe for the life of the car.

you can probably do that combo on your car 10-12 times and be safe.
