    Hello everybody. I was told a few weeks ago that I should not use a sponge to wash my car and insted should use a microfibre wash mitt.

    Firstly, is this statement true?
    secondly, is the meguiars microfibre wash mitt good?
    Thirdly, do I use the wash mitt exactly the same way as using a normal sponge (dipping it in a bucket of soap and water and rubbing the car)?

    If you have anything else to add, please do!!

    Thanks for the help guys!

    If you use a micro mitt, then you should really be doing the 2 bucket procedure

    Ditch the sponge, grab yourself a lambswool mitt or microfibre mitt and as NealP says "2 bucket procedure".

    Don't worry about what the neighbours will say about you having so many cleaning receptacles, they think you're crazy anyway

    Some really good advice HERE.

    Thanks Slowtech. Always wondered what the "two bucket method" was.
    I had to postpone the "alone" time I wanted with my car this week.
    Im gonna have a thorough of the link and give my car some proper love next week!

    Cheers and thanks for the post

    I've always used those micro mitts, and to be honest they are the best thing you can have (on a budget), obviously lambswool is better, but more exp.

    The micromitts are good as you can use the netted side to remove all flies, and tar from your front bumper without scratching your paintwork.
