    I've used sheepskin wooll for a while now and it seems to work well. problem is the last few i've bought have fallen apart only after a few washes. The wool starts coming off in clumps.

    I've also read microfiber mitts are good but may hold dirt more than lambswool.

    Lowes/HD grout sponge, ONR and two buckets w/ grit guards. Kind of paradoxical in that the sponges seem to last for fucking ever, but they're cheap enough that I could open a new one every other detail and not even blink at the cost.

    Microfiber covered foam pads work for me.

    Regardless of what material you use, cycle them out as often as you can afford.

    I've recently fallen in love with the Dodo Yeti's Fist. Pricey, but it's too cool not to have. :big grin:
