    I have been using the sheep skin ones, but they don't seem to last very long. Maybe I need to invest in a better quality one huh? I though a $25 mitt was a good one but I guess not.
    What's the alternative ? What brand doesn't fall apart? My driveway looks like I skinned and butchered a sheep in it from it falling apart. And it was 100% lambs wool . I also would turn it inside out after use and dry it real good thinking that was best.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    I pour a line of Maguiars liquid soap directly on a wet car wash brush ( the one on a pole) then with the truck wet I start from the top. Microfiber cloth to dry it. Seems to work.

    The $6 microfiber mitt from the hardware store seems to do it for me

    Personally, I don't like washing mits due to the fact that they trap in debris unless you use the two bucket system. Now I'm sure some people really enjoy theirs, but I have found that a washing pole makes washing so much easier. I purchased a washing mit (can't remember the brand) for a fairly decent price and on the first use it scratched the living hell out of the paint. Considering my taco is black, I notice every little detail and scratches drive me insane. The pole hasn't failed me and it doesn't necessarily require two buckets to prevent scratches.
