  • What is your go-to wash mitt?

    Hi everyone

    Keen to hear what your favourite wash mitt/wash pad to use is.

    Looking to use your recommendations to try the most effective wash mitt.

    Aaaaand go!

    Started with the Mint MF Deluxe mitts from CCP and they are serving me well. My lady friend bought herself the Gyeon Q2M Smoothie which I've used a few times. Don't mind it either. It holds heaps of water and suds so all you need do it give it a squeeze and you get suds galore!

      Surprisingly it's the Morgan microfiber noodle mitt from Bunnings. Noodles on one side, long plie microfiber on the other side. They are surprisingly good for the price.
      When is the next track day?

        I've got different mitts for different cars.

        For my own car I had a Wookies Fist till it got attacked by my cats - best damn thing, so soft and gentle.
        I've got MF noodle mitts for clients cars that are getting a full corrections and are not in the best condition. I've then got some nicer Mint MF mitts for returning clients or newer cars with better paint

            The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

              At the moment I'm using the Megs lambswool, the one with the mesh on the other side. The mesh comes in handy on the glass and also the unpainted bumpers, nudge bar and rock crawler bars on my FJ Cruiser. It's good on my Mum's old VZ as well, it gets washed every couple of months whether it needs it or not. I mix rinseless wash in with the normal car wash, to increase the lubricity, so the mesh side never seems to leave any marring.

              I might have check out the cheap ones at Bunnings now though, just to see how they compare.
              Remember,

                I have a bunch of bunnings noodle mitts as per previous posts, and a long noodle sweeper thing for the interior. They'll pick up all the dirt exceedingly well, but are a bit of a pain to clean!

                  Just the old Megs spounge covered in microfiber.

                  https://www.autobarn.com.au/meguiars...ash-pad-ag1020

                  I have 3 in different states. One really good one for paint, one not as good but still good for rims and one rather shitty old one with foam coming out the sides for engine bay/under car/other unhappy places.

                  I like being able to hold the spounge rather than have my hand in a mitt.

                    I have several noodle mitts, for each car I have separate ones for paint, wheels, inner guards & 1 for each of the kids to 'help' with.
                    Generally I'd only use the paintwork one for about 3-6 months thoroughly rinsing after use & washing monthly.
                    I have other wool and microfibres ones that I am yet to use.

                          Thanks heaps guys.

                          I was looking at the CarPro Merino and Gyeon Q2M Smoothie or Adams wool wash pad.

                          I'd like to try one of the noodle mitts as I've seen really good feedback on them.

                          Besides Bunnings, where else could I get a decent noodle wash mitt from?

                            Has anyone tried the Mint Microfibre Uber? Deciding between this and the Gyeon Q2M Smoothie (which I've heard great things about) and they both look similar, but the Mint is cheaper in price.

                              I'm using one at the moment and weighed up the same options with my last order. Very happy with it, holds a bunch of suds. The only thing I'm not sold on is the internal finger divisions- sometimes handy but I think the positioning is a little off
