      What is your preferred wash Media?

      Some of us prefer a Sponge, others use a Wash Mitt and then there are those whose simply wash using MF Towels.
      We are talking about both Rinseless washes as well as traditional shampoo wash.

      So what do you prefer as your wash media and do comment if you have an opinion.

      I prefer a Wash Mitt (noodle Type) both with Rinseless and Shampoo washes as I feel they have the minimal chance of dragging dust along. Ofcourse, I dry with MF towels and use them to remove polish or Wax but don't use them as a wash media.

      I used to use an old synthetic t-shirt rag (it is very soft) till quite recently. However, I have a noodle wash mitt with me which I have started using & love it. It can hold a lot of water & is easy to clean rounded areas, crevices etc. with that.

      Generally three variants...

      One is the normal mf noodles on both sides

      Second is normal noodles on one side and a flat MF (looks like short nap towel) on other side to help in a little more intensive scrubbing at spots

      Third is basically same as second with a small strip of harder net like material for removing bug spots from bumpers...

      Ceekay If you want more heavy duty retention capacity you will have to import... If answer to that is yes the have a look at lambswool mitts...

      To see what they look like go to Ultimate Finish website and have a look at the wash mitts there... Dodo has a couple of plus heavy duty ones

      Only thing is with such plush lambswool they take forever to dry, you have to wash carefully and when dried you have to comb them out... Maintenance is similar to having a ****gy long haired dog

      The bb Impex one seems decent... You can always buy one and see
