Wash mitt

Looking at buying a lams wool type mitt. Are they anygood?. On face value it looks like they will gather and scratch the paint, but lots use them?. The meguires one looks good?

Check out Microfibre Madness Incredimitt, it's an excellent pad and it will out last the traditional washmitt. I've had mine for over two years now and it's still going strong.

No, or at least no more than a lambs wool mitt. Scratches/marring comes from poor technique more than anything else.

Apparently the lambs wool is woven into a synthetic backing- longevity is not brilliant. I use sheepskin which is the full hide - current one still going strong after 3 years and still looking 'new'- highly recommend a sheepy

Race glaze - recently bought a back-up. The cuff doesn't look as good ( only had a quick look) - they do a better quality one in white which I should have bought this timebehave also got two sheepskinshop mitts which have never seen the light of day (keep forgetting about those!)
Just noticed - the dearer is white but appears to be same quality as the £14 mitt

It would be any dirt causing scratches not the wash media
