Hi,

My wookie mitt has trapped a lot of dirt at the root of the wool. Last time i put one in the washing machine it fell to bits. Is there a technique to cleaning them?

Ive just has the car painted and am being careful not to induce swirls.

Cheers
Richard

I would by another and keep yours for the wheels etc. I do give mine a blast from the inside with the pressure washer and a massage

Presume its a genuine decimal point error!

it reminds me of people bidding for an iphone box for £300.

Those listings for the iPhone box get removed by eBay now.

I actually washed mine with shampoo and conditioner, made brushing the knots out much easier!

I gave up using these big ass furry mittens. They tend to die fairly easily and yes I swear they trap dirt in the fibres. I prefer using a decent soft sponge instead - infact tescos (out of all places) sell these very soft blue/white car wash sponges, micro fibre on one side, bug removing netting on the other side, 99p. Out of all the fancy sponges and stuff I've wasted my money on over the years, this is the one I most like using now!

Hahaha, I'm not quite ready for slippers and a pipe yet.

But seriously, sometimes we buy into the hype of these products, but the reality is that they ain't that amazing
