it's time to replace a few items in my detail cabinet.

so it seems that the preferred wash mits (in order) are:

1) microfiber
2) sheepskin (good, available at Target & on-line but don't last)
3) chenille (available at Target & on-line )
4) synthetic (available almost anywhere)

can anyone vouch for this? what are you using?


I've been fairly satisfied using The Absorber but am looking to retire it to wiping down the interior and using something new for drying the paint. I already sheet the majority of the water off the car using a hose with low pressure and no nozzle. I won't go to a leaf blower :eek: but am seeking a new way to get the remaining water off of the car.

I'll pass on the California Waterblade.

the P21S drying towell seems to be a very popular choice.

what are you using and how do you like it?

I've read the Classic Motoring Accessories web page and have exchanged a couple of emails with them as well. they do indeed seem to push the microfiber wash mit and the Big Blue towell. using the water blade on the glass is a good idea. I may have to try that.

so is there only one "California Water Blade" or are there several brands that carry the same product with the same name. there's one sold at Target under the "Sol" brand.
according to posts on autopia, the viking 100% cotton mits have been discontinued and replaced with a blended fabric.
thanks. matter of fact, I ned to drive over that way and stop by the pep boys.
yeah, I see no reason to give up The Absorber. I did switch to Viking 100% cotton chenille wash mits, though. I threw them in the washer for one cycle and they linted badly but I think they seem softer and puffier now compared to unwashed. I'd probably wash the next couple of new mits as well.
