OOOOOO Goodness FocuseDat50. That was funny.

I use a towel. But I should get something a little more softer.

Unfortunately, due to living circumstances, I wash my car at a pressure wash car wash. Have yet to have any problems with scratches or damage. Use a chamois and wax as you dry between waxes, rim cleaner, and other products. Wish I could bucket wash. If i were bucket washing, it would be a sponge though! A small yellow sponge wearing shorts. HA! J/K

I use this really cool sponge that is soft sponge on one side and like a scrubber thing on the other side. Hope you understand that I have no idea what it's called but it works really well and will definally continue to use it.

I need a good wash bucket and mit. They need to make a bucket that is small. so far Griots has the best looking bucket. it is wide and shallow! Our cars are so low that we have to bend, wash, get up, bend, rinse, get up, bend, sud, get up, bend, wash... and if they are small you cant fit the grit catcher thingie!
I dont like the idea of crap getting "held" in the mit. I want it off my car and off the mit I want it on the ground where it came from! I might switch to a soft brush but I dont know if that is a good idea because it seems so unnatural. I think ReVamp is the only person who said anything about a mit...
maybe there should be some shock pads that we can use to shock our cars, and then all the loose stuff will get shocked and will fall to the ground!
Hey towel man, how often should we change our pads... anyone use menstral pads? Interesting!

I agree...,
That is the reason we have a new mitt with brand new technology.
It is MicroFiber that does NOT hold onto the dirt, dust, grit, etc.
It is easier to rinse than anything I have tried and has a long life(durability) making it an excellent value.

We continue to sell the "regular mitts" for those dirty jobs, however, for those that want the softest, easiest to rinse, easy to use mitt, the new High Performance Mitt is the answer:)

(we also have a new High Performance Towel that will outperform anything on the market)

Wayne, how do we go about getting these 'high-performance' mitts and how much do they cost? I myself was just thinking to myself that I needed to purchase a new mitt. I remember reading a review by Amanda and immediately thought of you and this mitt :)

I still love both mine, they each have their own unique qualities... it's like having to choose which of your children you like better

And to think I used to use big yellow Spongebob! My poor old car, it never knew anything else...
