Dooka pad also for me, but I have a incredi pad for the lower areas of the car as its easier to chuck in the wash, plus I don't want to fill the dooka with the lower sills dirt.

I much preface the Adams to the Dooka. I find it much easier to handle.

Imho, the best washmitt I ever used was the Petzolds one (formerly called FIX40). Nothing
else carried as much water, was nicely white to show dirt, stuck nicely to the wrist etc.

That said, I wouldn't do crazy transport cost experiments for it .. theres good enough alternatives.

Best Wash Mitt?

I’m using the in2detailing microfibre wash pad , and I must say I really like it , it’s just the right size and doesn’t retain dirt once dunked in the rinse bucket . I find my self using this more the the Adams or dooka . It’s defo worth a punt in think it was around a tenner

Also don't like how you have to care for them so delicately etc.

I'm assuming with dooka pad it's the same care technique.....

Don't know how all dooka users can be bothered with that.
yeh dooka needs care from what ive read, cant put it in the washing machine etc.
adams you can spray with adams microfibre revitilizer and brightner fill up the ball with non bio and stick it in the washing machine and tumble dry on a low heat

I tried the Dooka wash mitt and as much as my initial go was ok it shed its fur in under a month,a member on here recommended the Adams wash mitt and I have never looked back it’s superb.I will also pick up one of the in2detailing wash mitts as they look pretty useful.SJ.

Don't think you get much safer than the Dooka, mines is reserved specially for my own car. Had it for about 2 years now and it looks brand new. No special care either, toss it in the machine then air dried.

I do like these new MF pads/mitts hitting the market though. Love both my microfibre madness pad and mitt as well but still don't think they feel quite as slick on the paint as the Dooka.
