S'funny how years ago we all used sponges with no qualms. No all of a sudden we need to use mitts, z-sponges and s*hmitts.


yes but the sponge idea was ressurected purely with using ONR as it releases the dirt so much better into rinse bucket than a mitt or towel does .

not quite - you'll see I started this thread 2 years ago, quite a long time before I started using ONR and it became popular over here. Many people use soft sponges with traditional full rinse shampoos.

pretty much any sponge designed for tiling/grouting would fit the bill for you . Is non scratch so it errrrrrrr does not scratch ceramic tiles or clearcoat for that matter.

I havent looked back since getting a 3 pack...far better than the wash mits...and not inflicted any swirls or scratches.

Not to mention is easier to use than a wash mit....no drying or faffing about!
