I am glad that you brought out this test. Hell yeah, I have used many and many wash mitts and yes, they marred the paint. Even if I use the same producer, they have different quality (I don`t want to say, which products) but this is merino wash mitt (merino hair is almost 6 times thinner than usual lamb hair. Much softer) They are different, if you touch them - one is harsher than another and this harder causes pretty good marring. I have tested a lot prewashes and shampoos, using different methods. Wash pure and dirt panel - results are the same. Same marring.
Already thought, that I must test dooka. Maybe it`s right time, because someone else has also found, that this marring is caused by the wash mitt.

I would very much like to see this test repeated with Gtechniq

Would also like to see it with just a wax, but appreciate that's a tall ask :P

Im afraid once the paint has been corrected and coatings are on the only pad going near the paint will be the Dooka, however it will still be interesting to see how it holds up over time as the Dooka did still mark the unprotected paint ever so slightly

This. I've never liked wash pads for this reason.
