Are you looking for the ultimate wash mitt for your vehicle’s delicate finish? Well, look no further! I’m happy to say Detailed Image is now carrying the new reThickulous Wool Wash Mitt. There are many great wash mitts on the market today; however, this wash mitt is for those of us who demand the absolute best for our baby, or those who have very delicate paint. Previously, my go-to product was the DI Sheepskin Wash Mitt, and for most jobs it will remain so. However, the new reThickulous Mitt is the new favorite for my personal cars and high end client vehicles.
Here is how the mitt looks when new:
Note: In the below pics I had already used the mitt a few times and it wasn’t 100% dry either
Here is a comparison next to the DI Sheepskin Mitt. As you can see this thing is soft and fluffy!
Here is one with my hand next to both mitts:
Both mitts have a nice elastic band for excellent grip on your wrist as well as a loop for hanging to dry:
After dipping it into the bucked filled with Optimum Car Wash:
One thing I find attractive about this new mitt is a strong resemblance to my Himalayan cat. She’s super soft and fluffy and kind of looks like the mitt too!
However, I got “the look” when I told her I was going to use her to wash my car!
Caring for your reTHICKulous Wool Wash Mitt is simple; rinse it out really well after use and inspect for dirt…it does seem to release dirt very well too. After that simply hang it to dry in a clean environment or place in an empty bucket on top of a grit guard. If you’re OCD like me and want it to continue looking like new after each use, I picked up a great tip from my friend and fellow detailer, Corey (CEE DOG): after the mitt is dry, simply brush the mitt with a wire brush similar to the one in the picture below. On top of fluffing the fibers back up its also a great way to ensure any and all dirt is removed. After several uses mine still looks like new!
In closing, this mitt is definitely awesome, but given the high price point, I don’t feel it’s the best choice for cars that are very dirty and those that aren’t cared for on a regular basis.
