    What are you guys using to wash your cars? I'm currently use a cotton wash mitt, and like the way it holds soap, but want to try something different. I tried a sponge I picked up from the local store and it didn't hold water well, and didn't have any scrubbing power. Thinking of trying either a brush, sheepskin, or mf mitt. Any recommendations?

    I prefer sheepskin mitts, and only the softest ones. I do use chenille on my wheels and wells though.

    Vroom chenille covered foam pads are pretty nice, very soft. Definitely wash first.

    Now are you talking about the basic chenille, or the MF chenille?

    Basic. Cheap and they last me about a month-pretty good considering that is about 80 cars on average.

    Fixed. ;)

    About half of those are weekly wash customers. With my older son staying here to attend college, I actually have some competent help now and we can do some serious volume now. :)
