As you say for the price you can't go wrong and I bought this to have as my "other cars" pad but like I say after getting my hands on it I would seriously consider using it on my own car. I have the Dooka OSHA though so I likely won't be using this on my car anytime soon but once that is on its last legs I would consider switching to these and just pick up 3 or 4. One thing is for sure you can't beat this type of pad on maintenance, I love how they can just be chucked in the washer and come out nearly dry
Cheers mate

I do like the incredipad just find it a bit dense - it only gets used on the sills etc the Osha has been my go to since I bought it, just keeps getting better!

I recently took advantage of Carbon Collectives back Friday sale and bought their merino wash pad and Lusso shampoo combo. Offer has now finished but you can still get the combo (albeit a bit more ££) or buy the pad separately.

Now, I'm a great ham fisted oaf with massive hands (form.an orderly queue ladies ). It's just right for me.....



Fits great in my hand, does a cracking job of washing, hold plenty of water, good deep pile...etc. I love it.
Surely I'm not the only one who cringed when I saw this?????

Im wantijg a new pap or mitt, i use kent noodles for the crappy bottoms, but sheepskin shop mitts for the rest, can be a bit annoying with the drying time but they are nice and last ages.

Tempted buy dooka osha
Incredi
Adams

Anything else to consider

I managed to get on the truly buy for the Dooka and it is very nice. I'm a newbie so can only say it's he'll of a upgrade compared to my old sponges. A bit expensive but why not lol

Personally not liking dark coloured mitts. White is good to see remaining dirt on.

Not tried the Adams but heard good things. Having tried the dooka osha and incredipad the Osha wins hands down and I wouldn't use anything else now.

I suppose because of the ring on the finger? That could do some serious damage to paint if wash pad slips or he losses the grip of it.

In quite liking the carpro merino lambs wool mitt. It is quite pricey at £18. I see in2detailing do have a similar looking mitt for about £12
