    MircoFibre Washmitt or Lambswool mitt?

    Hi all, Looking at getting a new Washmitt as mine has seen better days. I was wondering which one would be better to use on my Bora (Yes the S3's gone for a shiney brown Bora ) out of the Meguiars Lambswool Mitt and the Meguiars Microfibre mitt?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Microfibres are to tightly weaved for a wash mitt, Lambswool is the better option. Dirt just gets stuck in the microfibre, microfibre is awesome for polishing tho.

    The only trouble I have with Lambswool is they rot and deteriorate.

    Get one of each mate. I use the microfibre for the tyres/alloys/underneath of skirts, bumpers etc and the lambswool for the bodywork.

    Lambswool are best for the paintwork - the shorter pile of microfibres can lead to marring the paint quicker, best to save these for arch lips/alloys/door shuts etc

    I use lambs wool, the key to not marring the paint really lies in the amount of pressure you put on. You want to be as light as possible, some people tend to scrub rather than lightly wipe! let the mit do the work!!
