    So I've got my ONR and soon a garage to wash in :)wiggle:) but I was wondering what you like to use with your ONR. I got 2 Cobra MF wash mitts when I ordered the ONR (clearance sale at $7.99 for both I think so why not) but I see lots of people using sheep skin mitts with ONR, does MF work just as well as SS or should I pick myself up a good SS mitt too?

    Blue, MF covered dog-bone sponges.
    They have them a Wal-Mart. They are really awesome for ONR.

    I like to use chenille and chenille/microfiber mitts. I just tried a grout sponge the other day and that worked really well too.

    I got several at Big Lots for $2 each. Very durable too, even after 4 months of professsional use, I am still using the first two. No splitting at the seams and they still fluff up nice after washing.

    Exactly what I do or I use a grout sponge.

    Pakshak's Ultra fluffy towels work great. On a heavily soiled car I can go through up to six though.

    I have limited experience with the grout sponge so I am not totally sold on it yet.

    :ugh: doesn't matter! you should still use quality products no matter what. that's like us saying to you "oh, you're only washing a station wagon." :slap: don't bring that hate shit in here.

    1978 BMW M1, less than 2000 actual miles when my sons and I detailed it back in late '03. That's Chris (Son of Scottwax) wiping off the wax.

    You think with as much as you know you'd get more than 2 applications out of a bottle of wax. :ugh2:

    Now go away troll, back to OT where you belong, this is where the grown ups play.
