My wash mitt from Griot's has seen better days. I really don't think it was worth the price, and the cost of shipping. Does anybody have any good recommendations for something to wash a car with? I'd like something that has a good sized area, can absorb dirt well, and isn't very abrasive.

Viking Sheepskin mitt (http://store.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/clink?autopia+yc5RwM+vk-103.html)
It looks like they are out of stock on this but it is avainible with the wash trio.

The Ultimate drying towel is great!!
Look how big it is. This car is a 2000 Grand Prix GT.
Here is the wash mitt.

I was extremely skeptical at first, but I like my boar's hair wash brush (similar to Griots at half the price).

I use a CMA Microfiber Wash Mitt.
One side is a soft high pile microfiber the other side is a scrubber microfiber.

I've heard that you have to know what you're doing with these, or you potentially can do some damage.

~One manís opinion / observations~

Boar's hair Wash Brush
My favourite washing tool, a natural boar's hair brush specifically made for delicate surface washing, a 100% natural boar's hair brush is a soft as a sheepskin mitt and is the only brush that is safe and will not harm or scratch the paint surface.

Note: use both the boars' hairbrush and sheepskin mitt by applying very light even pressure and wiping in one direction only, shaking and/or rinsing frequently.

Care: rinse thoroughly in clean warm water and allow to air dry by hanging up.

~Hope this helps~
