Can someone recommend me a good wash mitt please? Not something stupidly expensive either.

I've been using a medium dooka pad recently and I'm pretty pleased with it, definitely prefer it to the meguiars mitt I had before.

I've got a Meguiars, and a CarPro merino wool mitt.

I think the CarPro is kinder to the paintwork, but does malt a little.

I think he's being serious! Swirl heaven.

The Dodo one malts too. Still like it though.

Microfibre madness incredipad or incredimitt from polishedbliss. Will outlast a lambswool and you can chuck it in the washing machine with your microfibre cloths :)

Got to agree with tricky for the wheels, wo-wo's wheel mitt is excellent!

I use Wheel Woolies and Captain Crevice for wheels. If nothing else, I just love the name. Need to get another CC as mine's getting real tired now, but don't care on the winter wheels so much.

The other mitt I like is the Q2M from Gyeon. Their Q2M Bathe shampoo is pretty good too. Dodo's BTBM is still my fave though; nothing else quite matches it, and I've tried Swissvax, all sorts.
