Which one do you guys prefer from Walmart? The sheep skin mit or the microfiber mit?

I have used the sheep skin mit and it worked well but started to fall apart...

Are you talking about the muppet-head MF mitt? I like the muppet-head wash pads from Target, which are very similar. The terry-type mitt you have to be a bit more careful with.

I'm not sure which MF ones, I think they only had 1. But for the Sheep skin one, it's made by EUROW. http://autopia.org/f...mitt-eurow.html

Those Eurow Sheepskin mitts are pretty good. Just go through them and pick out the ones that feel best (thicker, softer, etc.).

Get the microfiber mit (blue) from target. At least their aisles are wide enough to walk through, and you won't get tuberculosis there.

Re: Target blue mitt

It leaves behind blue pieces of itself. I also didn't feel like it let go of dirt as well as the eurow mitt and did not feel as soft (dry or wet) but seems like it would stand up to machine washing better. I delegated it to wheel duty after one paint use, even there it lacks flexibility to get in between the spokes with my hand in it.

I personally use both :2thumbs: microfiber chenille mits with ONR and sheepskin with normal car washes. I do think sheepskin are safer but how ONR works your mits seem to get real dirty real quick and I find my mf chenille mits survive the washing machine allot better then the sheepskin do. Optimum also recommends the use of mf all over the bottle so I take that for what its worth. With the added lubricants in ONR I don't think that there is much more risk as far as scratches with the mf. :cooleek:

I was a little disappointed in the blue wash mitt from Target. It's a nice soft mitt,but it's almost TOO thick and plush. After I dipped it in the bucket, I had almost ZERO suds instantly when I started washing. I love the Vroom sheepskin mitts though.

I like the Eurow mitt I just bought from Wal-Mart. Very good mitt for the price!

i hate the blue target one, it holds TOO much fluids making it difficult to get through a car wash without a pulled muscle.

Yeah get the grout sponge's, there great. You can clean the car faster and the dirt in the sponge release all the dirt.

Also my eurow sheepskin fell apart after 24 wash.
Just trying to keep my family's cars clean.
