Car wash and polish mitts - time to forget the sponge
Car wash and polish mitts - how are they better than sponges?
While the sponge has been a staple car cleaning tool for years, the truth of the matter is that they can actually damage the paint work.
Sponges are not as efficient at picking up dirt as car wash and polish mitts and instead of removing grit and debris, they can actually just move it around on the paint and scratch it in the process.
If you notice tiny scratches on your bodywork, your sponge and any dish cloth you have used to polish it are more than likely the culprits.
Car wash and polish mitts are different in that they are made from softer materials such as lambs wool and microfibers and are also designed in such a way that they are incredibly easy to use.
Lambs wool gently traps dirt and debris and pulls it away from your car's paintwork, meaning it is less likely to leave swirl and scratch marks.
Microfibre car wash and polish mitts work in much the same way, sucking up water and dirt much more effectively than a sponge.
Car polish mitts - how are they better than regular yellow cloths?
You can use the best car polish in the world but if you are using the wrong type of cloth to apply it then you are going to do more harm than good.
If swirl marks are the bane of your life then the chances are you have been washing or applying car polish with the wrong tools.
Yellow dish cloths are not as gentle ot your cars paintwork as car wash and polish mitts.
Instead of lifting the dirt away from the paint, you are rubbing it on the paint, which is what causes swirl marks.
Where car wash and polish mitts are better is in the use of lambs wool and microfibers, which are both better at lifting dirt off.
Your car shampoo will have removed most of the grit but even the best ones can leave a few grains here and there.
