This what I now do Zeddd I feel happier with the clean mf for every wipe. I get two strokes from each side of the folded mf....lightly using the trailing edge. No swirls yet.

That SP sponge looks similar to mine

The same seller just got this one that also looks interesting but I don't need it and am quite happy with what I use.

There was a post on here showing someone's method of using small mf towels singularly on each panel. So you start with 8 or 9 in your solution, take a towel, do a panel and then take the next clean towel for the next panel...

Then someone came along with a modification to that method by rolling the towel as you moved it across the panel such that the dirt didn't get dragged put just picked up. The towel was then turned to use a clean face on the next wipe and so on.

The towel is never put back into the clean solution to rinse it off and you only mix enough solution to thoroughly soak the number of towels required to clean the car.

You still use a pre-wash mix of the rinseless to soften the dirt before using the wash solution.

Andy, that sounds very much like the original Gary Dean method.

Thank you.

It is something I am going to try. I wasn't totally happy doing a rinseless wash but using many clean towels looks very positive.

Would love to see the Big Red Sponge this side of the Atlantic and one day I might try the original OPT mitt but as my cheap noddle mitts seem to last a very long time it might be a few years before I get one

Same mindset I guess
