    I voted lambs wool. I didn't care for the shedding of chenille. I do use a chenille with a reach stick for trucks and SUVs. Shedding was gone after several uses.

    Hey,

    I too use a lambs wool mitt. I will get probably 20 washes out of each one and then I replace it (the fur is usually coming out by that point).

    Cheers!

    David B from Autopia states the lambs wool mitt he uses lasted 21 months. He uses the mitt once a week.

    I use a water sprite that has served its usefull life for drying cars. It holds a lot of soap, is very slippery and of all the other things I have tried for washing produces the least amount of washing marks.

    I can say they take a little getting used to but do the job well and for the most part they are free, if not fo using them for washing I would be throwing them away.

    I use a microfiber sponge. Easy to use and clean.

    As of late I've been using a buff n shine cuffless wash mitt... well sorta, it's not really a mit, just a 9" X 9" square with wash mit type material on it, but you can't put your hand inside. It's got a really nice and deep nap on it and so far has been doing quite well in reguards to not leaving swirls. I like it because I never put my hand inside the mit, I always just grabbed it so this makes more sense for me.
    Later,

    Like David, I've managed to get an extended life out of my lamb's wool mitt. I think I'm working on month 14 now and it's just about as good as new. Mine is used, at least, once per week.

    Wow! You guys are getting a lot longer life-span out of your mitts. Maybe I am throwing them out too soon. I am going to have to look at that a little more closely.

    David B also went on to say he wash and drys the mitt after use. This helps the fibers stay attached to the backing. This option rather than letting the mitts air dry. The mitts stay damp for a while and the fibers start to peel away when they air dry.

    I'll try to find that post.
