Microfibre madness incredipad, nice size, fits right in your hand, durable and seems to release any dirt you should pick up easily.

These ones http://www.in2detailing.co.uk/thick-...-pad-blue.html
I have one of these and I rate it, gets rid of the dirt easily in the rinse bucket as its not grabby and holds the shampoo well. A good all rounder.

Dooka or Adams wash pads are the best. The dooka pad is almost to good to use

I have just moved over to the Adams wash pad from the dooka lambs wool pad as the dooka pad literally fell apart by the fact I did not baby it enough Lol...I’m so glad I made the change to the Adams pad as it’s superb and much more durable with less maintenance which is a “BIG” plus in my books.SJ.

I've just changed from Merino to a CarPro Microfibre mitt and I like it. It goes in the washer with the microfibre towels with some non bio at 40 degrees and comes out spotless and nearly dry.

I stick to the Kent wash mitts on Amazon http://amzn.to/2AUFfAd. Decent quality mitts that are cheap enough to replace when they start to look less vibrant. I downgrade body mitts to alloys, alloy mitts to the exhaust and then bin them.

I've just moved away from a wash mitt. I prefer the extra flex I can get from a wash pad.

I recently took advantage of Carbon Collectives back Friday sale and bought their merino wash pad and Lusso shampoo combo. Offer has now finished but you can still get the combo (albeit a bit more ££) or buy the pad separately.

http://carboncollective.com/product/...wool-wash-pad/

Now, I'm a great ham fisted oaf with massive hands (form.an orderly queue ladies ). It's just right for me.....



Fits great in my hand, does a cracking job of washing, hold plenty of water, good deep pile...etc. I love it.
