This is Gyeons PH neutral shampoo, which is a gentle cleaning pure shampoo which leaves nothing behind Just the way you want a shampoo to be so that the behavior of the underlying LSP isn't affected :thumb:
Now i have used many shampoos some which are very good and some which i personally felt didn't do the job very well at all. This shampoo is certainly up there with the best that i have used including Duragloss which is a favorite for many people. Ok it doesn't have a nice fruity fragrance if that's what you look for in a shampoo then this may not be for you, but if you want something that has a lovely slick feel to it with good cleaning power but at the same time still being gentle enough to not damage the LSP then you should consider this especially when you factor in how much is needed for a wash With a concentration of 1-500 a little does go a long way.

Q2M Woolie (Full Info (http://www.gyeonquartz.com/product-guide/q2m-woolie))

This is one of Gyeons wash media's personally my favorite of the two for bodywork :thumb: The woolie is a nice soft natural wool wash pad made from the softest Australian wool that is available. One of the biggest advantages of this pad over most others out there is the back unlike most wool wash mitts this has a nice mesh back which doesn't go horrible and smelly if not looked after properly and also wont rot if not dried out. it has a nice long pile which really helps to keep the paintwork safe from dirt particles picked up from the wash process.
It isn't the cheapest wash mitt option available but personally i feel that if looked after and rinsed out after use and left to dry naturally and given the occasional brush then im sure it will last a long time making it a very good investment for a safe wash.


Below is a few pictures of the products in use today.

I started off by measuring how much the cap of the shampoo bottle held, a very convenient 15ml so the perfect amount for a normal size bucket so no need to get the measuring spoon here saves a little time :thumb:

This was pored into the bucket and as you can see it starts to foam almost straight away and once the bucket is full even 15ml has added a nice blue color to the wash bucket.

Giving the bucket a quick blast with the PW gives you lots of nice suds which i know aren't that important but it always looks nice and is easier to see where you have been.

Once on the panel the shampoo is very slick and leaves a nice amount of suds behind. these rinse away very easily leaving a nice clean look. These pictures also shows how deep the pile is once whet and in use :thumb:

Below is a couple of pictures comparing the Gyeon woolie to the Car Pro mitt

A can be seen the car pro mitt is slightly larger and has a slightly deeper pile but both are very good and would be my choice over a normal mitt and one last pic to give you an idea of how big the Gyeon mitt is in comparison to a bucket.

Sorry for the long review but Both products are very good and i would happily replace them both tomorrow so thought they needed to be shown fully, any questions please ask :wave:

I have no idea, never bothered measuring it as long as it holds enough water to do a car its big enough :lol:, but its bigger than a builders bucket

Dave, I think you took the Woolie's pictures after initial use with water. We need to underline 2 things:
1. After initial water contact, wool hair shrinks optically, as it gets curly.
2. Generally regarding natural wool - you never get 2 same sizes, you never know who was hairdresser and how old was the sheep etc. :lol:

Just to compare your Mitt and our friend's, have a look here...

ok, not trying to say ones better than the other jsut do a comparison as more people have used the car pro mitt due to it being available

However both of the mitts pictured have been used 2-3 times each and rinsed with clean warm water after and aloud to dry naturally, prior to the picture both mitts were given a brush to fluff them up.

The mitt in the above picture doesnt look like its been wet yet ? if so how can a fresh new mitt be compared to one which has been used a couple of times?

Nobody saying which one is better :) CarPRO is little different, but not worse, I am not saying that. CarPRO looked like never used, and Gyeon opposite, but this is my fault!

No, i wouldnt do that if you going to compare things then it needs to be fair :thumb: But i really dont want this to draw away from the thread as the mitt is very good and the shampoo is excellent

Website says 12 usd so as long as the uk supplier doesn't go mad it should be quite a good price.

Dave let me try some of this shampoo and it is very slick bubbles up nice for people who like bubbles it is one I would buy and probably will as only got couple of half bottles of shampoo left to use up.

Dave has let me try a few of the Gyeon products its a good line of products only one I was not overly impressed with being honest is the tyre dressing.

Wash mitts look good, what are the uk prices going to be roughly on these?
