washing mitt

do u have any recommendation on washing mitt?
i ve used turtle something washing mitt
i dont kno if that one caused it or not but my car has many of those tiny scratches
i washed my car only two times..ive had it for 1 month
and yeh mine is black i kno scratches are more noticable on black but thats too many..
i use meguiars deep crystal wash..and one bucket for soap water
and a hose for rinse out the mitt after each section..
i dont kno what caused those scratches that much..
before i wash my car..i rinse it out with pure water using my hand kinda wiping the car
to get those dirts from the car's surface since im scared to just wipe those out with mitt cuz i think that will make more scratches..

civicdude will become famous soon enough
Some of the mitts are machine washable. I wash mine out with water and sometimes soap after each use

You need to spray the car down with a could spray nozzle on the hose before you wash it. This will get most of the loose debris and stuff.

Also, I wouldn't rub my hand down the car to remove dirt. A mitt is used because it is soft but also because small particles of dirt get trapped in the fibers keeping them from scratching the car.

Anyhow, I wash my mitt in the washing machine after each and every use along with the terry towels I used to dry the car. If I drop the mitt I get my backup.

I have a black car too. Scratches are a part of life with black cars. ALL cars have them, you just can't see them as easily. EVERYTHING shows on black but only when close up.

I think silver and champagne are by far the easiest colors to take care of and keep looking new.
