Not "the best wash mitt" but the "better than wash mitt"

Hi All,

I will shortly be buying a new mitt, typically it would be a Megs mitt since I buy them for about $7. I split washing the vehicle 50/50 TBM / ONR as more often than not I am dealing with light dust and sand. I also use an Incredimitt for regular daily drivers and thought I would get one in place of the Megs this time.

Before I do, I would be interested in alternatives that some of you may have tried since there appear to be a few names that crop.

There are a some specifics as follows.

The item needs to be better than the Incredimitt or at least as good in your opinion. Ideally respondents will have used an Incredimitt to answer that.

It must be man made material / synthetic. That will negate one well known brand out but I will just have to live with that.

Preferably it should be a mitt but I would consider a pad (not the Adam's pad as I have one)

It does not need to be particularly long lasting but decent for use with TBM.

So there you have it, what do you suggest?

Thats very strange. A very kind offer from yourself I hope it was removed by accident by a mod and not intentionally.

Auto Rae Chem/In2detailing

Auto Rae Chem/In2detailing do an unbranded thick Korean washmitt and pad

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Extra-Thi...75.c100623.m-1

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Extra-Thi...-/253044400262

Ive used the in2detailing one and its the same as the one in the link except the Auto Rae Chem one is a bit cheaper, im picking a second one up soon.

They are super thick and have a bit in the middle inside that fits between your 2 fingers to stop it turning on your hand, I would highly recommend these.

Super thick and soft. better quality than the megs synthetic ones

So have you all used the Incredimitt?
As he wants comparisons with this but if you have not used it then your answer holds no value to him.

I have no idea what happened here because the last time I looked this morning there were no posts at all, I thought I had made it a bit to hard with the all the specifics. But it was a very kind offer, I will pm Alan anyway.

I know what you mean, it was more specific to that 1st statement so folk knew I had some sort of goal rather than just a lot of suggestions piling up but with the other points I opened it up a bit, at least that was my intention.

I was just trying to avoid another "best wash mitt" thread.
