Bought the woollen mit about two weeks ago from VIP car care. From memory it was around $13. I love using it, the only problem is that on the reverse side it has a mesh that is for removing bugs. They only recommend using that side on plastic and very lightly on paint, so I'm always scared that I'm going to scratch the duco.

*EDIT*

The other product I recommend is the car care mit from ENJO. If you know anyone selling that product buy it. It's pricey but it's the best thing I've used to clean the car with.

Ahh, then you are missing out.

I drove the car to Melbourne in April and the car was covered in bugs. My mate had one and washed my car a couple of weeks later with the mit with only water and it was like new again, without even scrubbing hard the bugs washed off.

I picked up the polishing cloths in Big W about two months back. Sounds like I should get the mit too.

it seems as though there are many companies emulating the 'enjo' products, even thes new meguairs products have a 'microfibre' type technology to them...

After using both the Enjo and Meguairs mitts. I'd have to say that the Enjo wins hands down. However price makes a big difference. Meguairs $13, Enjo $50.

Well i use the Meguires polishing cloth, seems to be ok though i have tried bed sheet linen like what Aurora mentioned and that works pretty good too.

I am having problems with getting rid of the clear coat swirl marks and though it's not that noticable in the day, under the neon light at night it shows up Big time. :dead:

So far i'm trialing a product from Turtle Wax called clear coat swirl reducer. Though i haven't tried Scratch X.

If these new wizz bang cloths from Meguires work good then i might have to pickup some.
