    Its a common question that Im sure has been asked before, but what are DB's members using these days for washing. I mostly use the LC Ulti-Mitt, I have a sheepskin that I used to always use and still do sometimes, and I have a MF covered sponge I plan to use for rinseless.

    Whats everyones favorite mitt or sponge or whatever you want to call it.

    hmmm...well I got a few, I still don't mind using the Black, White ShMITT and I've been using the Zymol Sponge...they all work well but I like the Black ShMITT, has a really good bite to it and I only use it knowing that I'm doing a paint corrections.

    But I'm pleased with all the washing utensols I currently have and use :thumb:

    I've heard great things about the Sea Sponge? Not a cheap bugger but sounds like a good sponge :confused: dont' know much about it though, or why it's so expensive?

    I like the Home Depot grout sponge, and the sea sponge if price was not involved.

    When you guys say chenelle you mean the MF chenelle? the one that looks like dread locks?

    What kind of RV brush? Ive been looking for something to get for my dad's rig, boar's hair is too expensive though.

    Have tried Ulti-Mitt, but still prefer a Shmitt over it... White/yellow is my favorite.
    Sea sponge is nice, very soft, and works the best with Pinnacle Bodywork Shampoo (glides so easily)'s pricey, I probably won't be getting more of them, had 2 or 3...still have 1 laying around...
    Maybe it kinda for nostalgic feeling of car washing, using natural sea sponge with a coconut shampoo (Pinnacle), and they dry up a a with a chamois...Pittards dry soft champois...

    For me the best is a lambs wool wash mitt. I have a Schmitt that was given to me by another forum member and have used it. It works but I prefer the lambs wool mitt. If taken care of the wool mitt lasts a long time for my washing regimine. I did like the Schmitt for a rinseless wash though.
