Microfiber sponge and microfiber mitt are the same right?NitrousG35 said:Do not, I repeat, do not use sponges on your car. Use a good quality sheepskin or microfiber mitt. Use a good bucket with a grit guard. Doing so will help to eliminate damage to the paint by running dirt or particles of sand over the paint. Sponges can actually drag particles over the paint and increase swirls and scratches.
Actually, I would not use a sponge simply because the nap of the sponge surface is shallow, allowing particles of dirt to be run over the paint. A mitt is more plush and can prevent particles from remaining on the surface of the mitt, thus stopping swirls and scratches.Civic1stGen said:Microfiber sponge and microfiber mitt are the same right?
Actually, they can be avoided. My FA5 is 4 months old and I don't have one scratch or swirl in the paint. I had Rasky take a look at the car and even he said there wasn't anything he could do to improve on the paint quality.ronin said:Swirls are unavoidable. You can do/use things to minimize it.
