Best pad for buffing wax?

I was wondering what kind of pad I should use with my Meguiar's polisher for buffing wax? I generally apply and remove wax by hand but figure I can use my polisher to buff up the shine far more efficiently.

Usually a black pad is used for applying wax or sealant

Thanks for the reply. That's not what I looking for though. After some research I determined I need terry and microfiber bonnets for buffing wax.

you said pads so i assumed you wanted a wax/sealant applying pad for your polisher. to buff it off get some premium microfiber towels. if you want some examples let me know

Terry is no bueno. Use a soft MF towel.

By hand, using an ultra-soft MF towel, flipping it frequently.
