    for different products. foam is best for soaking liquids from expeirence so gently apply pressure will release more and wont get stuck in the cotton weaves

    cotton is best for natural waxes and other harder substances. you can use both but I prefer to keep seperate applicators based on the product.

    apart from the obvious (one is foam and one isnt lol) foam ones are best used for waxes and cotton ones best for applying polish/galze etc etc.
