Megs Lambswool Washmitts

Hi

After washing the car with these is there any rules to keeping them in good order? Is it simply rinsing them out of all shampoo and leaving to dry outside or can I use a radiator?

I completely destroyed my previous mitts so don't want to do the same again now I am getting back into it.

Thanks Li

Be careful with them. Just gently rinse and allow to dry naturally. Whatever you do don't put it in a washing machine like I did - it will fall apart. Unlike the CYC lambswhool wash mitt, Ive had one for ages and always chucked in the washer - only now, after years, is it starting to fall apart.

After rinsing put your hand back inside (not right in) grab the inside of the cuff very tight and shake the mitt vigorously a couple of times up and down, this removes the majority of the water and the wool then stands proud of the backing to enable it to dry quicker and more easily. I then hang mine from an old Banana stand and let it dry.

They don't survive like MF Mitts but this certainly helps.

I had one, it worked well, but started to fall apart after 4/5 months of weekly/fortnightly use, which I don’t think is unreasonable tbh! I just rinsed and left to dry on a clothes horse type thing!

Thanks so much. Been reading the forums for a few weeks and it looks like the Lambswool wash-mitt is the thing to use. Going to try a snow foam too, just because it looks fun
