I'm currently using wo-wo sheepskin wash mitt and a car pro mitt, I've had my car pro long hair mitt for years and it's still good as new.

 

Drying towel wise I always use autofinesse aqua deluxe or kkd silverback.

I use a Dooka lambswool wash pad (not a mitt, but a great product) which has lasted me for 4 years now and is still going strong. I also use a Microfibre Madness Dry Me Crazy towel.

I have & use these 2 types of drying towels, both very good.

For wash mitts I have a few but tend to use these the most.

(In no order of using just what I have)

Dependent on budget - there are a few great options....

 

Dooka wash pads are superb, no denying it - but pricey

(Available dooka direct)

 

Adams Synthetic wash pad is nice, cheaper and machine washable;

does need a little after care - such as brushing out any tangles.

(Prestige car care or Motorgeeks sell these)

 

The KLiN style twisted pile drying towels are excellent.

(In2detailing, CYR and others selling these.)

Cheap wash mitt or wheel mitt - recommended on eBay at  approx £1 each;

really nice - wash well and throw away after a few months and buy a fresh one.

I also like the Adams wash mitt. Being synthetic a little easier to care for than the true lambswool ones. I got a WoWo wheel wash mitt a few months back when it was on a cheap offer and that's worn really well

Thanks heaps guys!

 

What brush do you use on the dooka and Adams wool pad?

 

Certainly over time it benefits from a brush now and again.

 

Look on ebay for the cheap "detangle" type brushes.

Works well on most wash pad/mitts of this type and deep pile MF's too.

Thanks again all, think I now have the wash mitt covered.

 

Any other drying towels that you would recommend?

      Hi again just thought I would post up my maintenance wash I recently did on a Bentley I know it's not a skoda again but you didn't seem to mind last time

      Hello everyone,
       
      I've recently been entrenched in the automotive detailing world. It's something I feel I have a passion for and want to know more. I purchased a Dual-Action Machine Polisher to assist me in this venture. I was wondering if any fellow Briskoda Forum users share the same passion as me and maybe could offer some tips in regards to Skodas particularly.  
       
      As I'm hopefully picking my new Skoda up in the next few weeks, I would like to make sure that I am able to keep the bodywork in tip-top condition. As I have no idea what condition the paintwork will be, I'm making assumptions. I'm thinking it'll be good but not 100%, so I think I'll have to clay bar the car, polish it, apply sealant and then add some Gtechniq Liquid Crystal C2 (pretty much spray on wax, reviews are stellar). I'd love to purchase some sort of coating for the paint such as the Gtechniq EXO Ultra Durable Hydrophobic Coating or C1 Crystal Lacquer but they're extremely expensive (£44 and £42.50 for only 30ml!). 
       
      I'd love to hear your thoughts in regards to this topic, I feel that it could benefit many other people who want to take care of their cars, not just me!

      Hi,
      I received an autoglym set as a gift and I haven't the heart to tell them I won't use much of it.  I feel really ungrateful, but sadly, it will go to waste if I keep so up for sale bits of it go.  Obviously all bottles are brand new, unopened and there for 100% full still.
       
      Autoglym Clean Wheels 500ml spray bottle £6 - sold 2x Super Resin Polish 325ml £8 each  
      Or buy both for £13
       
      Prices include postage, and I'd prefer them both to go together to save on postage costs.
       
      I may have more to add.  I have another spray on aqua wax that I likely won't use, but they may notice that 'missing' ha.

      Hello all,
       
      Having just had my new motor Gtechniq coated (Black & Exo) I wonder what products I can use over it. I dont really want to use anything wax based so avoiding those products but like most of you I have a lot of existing products that I am now worried about using.
       
      Can anyone point me in the right direction...
       
      Thanks all
