The White and Blue pads are of very little use, compared to the Maroon (Burgandy), Green and Grey.

The White and Blue's don't really seem to remove much if any surface of the ball. They may have some use for cleaning or maybe scuffing up polish.

EDIT: (4/6)
*** The blue's do seem to remove material, guess I'll have to examine the White's again. ***

Here is Slap's Review of "Gold Scotch Brite"

I'm not sure how to describe this but the gold pads feel different. I'm not sure if they are constructed from a different material, a different style of weaving or what but there is a difference. Nothing like the blue or white pads I have. Although in scanning 3M's website there appears to be different type of scuff pads. I'm curious to see if there are other types of white and blue pads.
Think I'm gonna order a roll of Gold Scotch Brite.

Tried the Blue Scuff Pads again it does seem to work okay. Might not be the best to remove to polish.

We need to determine where the Blue and Gold fall is order of grits.

Think I got my blue pads at WalMart by the dish soap. If I find the part number, I'll post it.
