    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 :think:) 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.

    Currently using a SV Wasch Pad.

    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 :)

    Ok, Thanks for the Advice all.

    The Bilt-Hamber Auto-foam I bought turned up today so I will have a go and see how I get on :D Also bought some Poorboys Polish with carnuba wax to try out :)

    Lambswool here too. THe microfibre one only does the pastics and 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!!
