Pad or mitt

I like pads that can hold ALOT of water but I just ordered a Meguires lamb wool mitt.

Will have to see how well made it is, quality is becoming ever rarer

Both.

I use a pad for the bulk of the car but revert to a mitt to do the lower areas such as sills, bumpers and arches.

I prefer washing a car with a mitt and not being afraid that i might drop it on the ground.

Mitt - feel like pads are too easy to drop (or maybe that's just for me)!
