I couldnt find the ultra plush chenille on MEG's website, do they still have it?

Anyway, the only thing that I dont like about the ultra plush mit, it leaves little pieces all over my jeep. Ive got to go around and pick them out of the cracks and off the windshield wipers. I just bought the ultra plush sponge at the dollar store since it was so cheap, but I would like to try out a Microfiber mit. :coolgleam

Unfortunately, the Deep Pile Chenille Wash Mitt (X-3000) is a product that has been discontinued. The Microfiber Wash Mitt (X-3002) is the product that has superseded it. It is a great wash mitt, gently lifting dirt/grime while still pampering the painted surface...

I really dig the microfiber mitt. I've used them several times now and I think they're going to take the place of my lambswool mitts. :xyxthumbs

I like lambswool until they get a little ball of dirt or grime in them, then it's the devil's own to get it out of there. I've tryed Wally World MF pads, and didn't like them. Time and technology have changed my mind more than once though . . . .

My only options are Meguiar's Deep Pile Chenille and Ultra Plush,
I prefer the Ultra Plush synthetic lambswool because it's more gnetle and dirt gets trap in the wool better, but does not clean well at all.

Currently using the cotton chennille wash mitt, no complaints ! :D

Just a FYI... If you really like them, stock up. They quit making them. I have the one I use and 3 backups. Big Lots has them on close out if you have one near you.

I use synthetic and natural lambswool. I do prefer the synthetic as they seem to last longer for me. Have no problems with throwing them in the washer and they come out like new. Natural mitts dont lend themselves to machine washing at all.

The chenille mitt is not bad, but barely use one and when I do its for lower panels only. I cant quite put my finger on what I dont like about them.

LOL! i though that it was you at first. I just found it kind of strange that you would be asking how many RPM's the G100 spun at at different speeds. I think I was about to refer you to Rotary vs. PC vs. Regular Orbital Buffer (http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1395)

You picked up on that too... it was just so obvious.

The part about the wash mitt was a little obvioius also.

The natural lambswool works best in my opinion it grabs all the crud and takes it off in one pass.

I voted for microfiber as that is my favorite mitt, but my prefered wash media is a good sponge. Currently, I use a grout sponge from Home Depot that simply works wonders!

I didn't like the Meg's microfiber mitt when I first used it; wasn't what I had expected. Now that I've used it more, I'm really starting to love it. My favorite has always been natural lambswool simply because it's so gentle, but I hate the fact that they're pretty expensive and they only have a limited lifespan. I think the MF mitt will soon become the only mitt I use.

Also, I still love the old chenille mitts that Meg's discontinued. They're great for cars that are absolutely filthy because you can easily rinse out all the grime you're collecting.

Please tell me more about the grout sponge.

Please tell me more about the grout sponge.
It is very cheap (under $2), lasts forever, ultra soft, very porous, holds a LOT of suds, it picks up dirt easily and 'hides' it in the sponge, and best of all, with a little Dawn dish soap, washes so clean that you would of think it has never been used. It seems to just release dirt as soon as it hits water too, so when you dunk it in the water, virtually all the dirt falls off very quickly.

I heard about it on another forum when they claimed it didn't scratch their paint at all with Optimum No Rinse, and after reading how many other people had the same results, I decided to jump on the bandwagon, and sure enough, it simply works. I highly recommend you try it, and for $2, you can't go wrong.

I stopped by Home Depot to get one, but was dissapointed at what I saw. I couldn't see any difference in their grout sponge and the old bone shape sponge I used to use.

Looked like the same thing to me.

I was thinking that a grout sponge had larger holes and softer material.

I use t o buy those old bone sponges to cut up and use as applicators, and from everyone I have felt, they feel nothing alike. The brand I use is Proline. Remember to get the single packaged ones though; you don't want the ones with the scrubber side. I also heard that Lowes carries a pretty good one too. I certainly notice a difference between them and most bone sponges you will find.

All I can say is just try it. It does work in having a scratch-free wash provided you use proper wash technique, and I find that it does so much better than mitts which is why I use it. If you like it, great, if not, than cut the thing up into 6 squares you have some pretty good dressing applicators!

For $2, you can't go wrong either way!

I've been using natural lambswool and I really like it, EXCEPT I don't know if I'm not taking proper care of it but it is ripping to shreads and I've only had it for about 4 months or about 30-40 washes.

I'm actually looking to replace it this week and was open to suggestions.

I have tried H ome depot grout sponge does NOT work swirl city.

Microfiber mitt cleans well but does not release dirt.

cotton chenille Viking brand with cotton loogo on it does pretty good.

My fav is a Lambswool mitt.

The ones from Lowes are $1.97. Back in the tile section, near carpet and flooring. My store had boxes of them. I'll be using ONR for the first time this weekend and will give it a try.

I used a Microfiber Wash Mitt I bought at Target. The outside works great, but after the 3rd wash or so the interior started falling apart. It functions fine just feels weird putting my hand in there since there's some torn fabric.

I thought of getting a lambswool one next but after reading these posts, I think I'll just get a quality MF mitt again, hopefully one that lasts longer.

I love the dogbone-shaped microfiber sponge with the dreadlocks on one side, and the bug-scraper texture on the other side. I think I got mine at WallyWorld for a few bucks.

Gotta love the dogbone-shaped MF dreadlock-wrapped sponges :thumb:
Has the bug-scrubbing netting on one side for washing the headlights and side mirror housings, and the dreadlocks on the other side for everything else =).
Got mine at WallyWorld, but my guess is that any chain store carries their version of it.


I also have a different MF wash mitt, but apparently it was designed with Sasquatch's hand in mind. It's a bit too large to go over my hand, and also too large to grasp like a sponge, too.

Well, we cant all have 4 straight seasons drafting 1st and 2nd overall.....:dunno

Though apparently I lied about the mitt. It was a Vroom brand one, but not dreads. It is a big blue MF, and it looks like the dreads were cut to fray. It actually worked very well though, held tons of water, and scrubbed nicely.

I also like the size of the MF mitt. Easier to scrub on the grit gaurd. My lamb's wool is too long. Plus using a MF will score some points with the animal lovers
