Default Lambwool v.s. Microfibre wash mitt - 29th September 2017, 10:18 AM

Hi all you detailing experts.

I wish to start as I mean to go on with my new Mini.

Do I go for lambwool or Microfibre. Any opinions any reasons for your choice much appreciated.

thanks Jean

I've used microfibre mitts as I never looked for a lambswool one. I'm not sure that my wife would take me seriously if I went out with my buckets and lambs wool mitt. I'll leave it to a real detailer to answer properly...

Microfibre fan here, I tend to find lambswool deteriorates too quickly.

I bought a lambwool one, tried it, loved it.

Was testing it out using the two bucket method and really impressed how effective it is and it doesn't even seem like you are touching the paintwork.

A neighbour went passed and commented on me having my hand rammed inside a glove. I told him I don't like getting wet when washing my car. A little bemused he wandered off.
