    Can someone explain “wash induced marring”?

    There are a few ways and techniques to wash a car marring free. The involved foam gun way works for me but it’s not the only way. Researching will show which options are out there to get swirl free results.

    LOL. Thanks Setec!

    Ideally, but the OP was asking what wash induced marring is/means, not how it happens.

    Seriously, Bill, you were the first guy to promote the idea of not rinsing out your wash media after it got dirty, having a lot of them and just switching to a clean one, and laundering after. People have argued with me that because you did it with a conventional wash, you are not the father of the (rinseless) method, but to me, it's not whether it's conventional or rinseless, it's the idea of not reusing the media that was the breakthrough concept, and you were the guy.

    I likened it to playing golf or tennis. Sure you can play with one ball but several is a lot better. I figured one day to do the same with wash mitts LOL. Worked for me and I’ve been doing so ever since.

    Here you are in 2005: sheep skin mitt idea

    And here you are (post #6) saying you used the multiple-mitt method with rinseless, back when the only rinseless wash was QEW, making you the father of the BDM: Qew Disaster!

    People will argue that the other method uses towels instead of wool mitts...but I argue it's the concept of the multiple media that is the game-changer.

    Can someone explain “wash induced marring”?

    Wow I’ve been doing this since 2005! Boy does time fly!

    I’m too scared to try washing with MFs as the wash media. To me there’s not enough nap to whisk away contaminants when compared to a mitt but that’s just my bias

    Seatec,

    How much is Bill D paying you to be his PR agent?

    I don't even use the "multiple media" method, I just can't get myself to like it, at least for rinseless, using towels (I've never tried it for conventional wash). I am working up to (rinseless) trying it again using MF mitts or sponges. It's just that Bill and I (and I guess you) have been around these forums for a long time and there was so much noise about that other guy inventing the method and having it named after him (I think he probably named it after himself) when to me it wasn't really a new idea. To be fair, he did post a YouTube explaining it in detail...but I think when Bill started doing it YouTube didn't even exist.

    Re: Can someone explain “wash induced marring”?

    •I define “wash induced marring” as:

    -A trace amount of surface imperfection(s)
    [most commonly seen on vehicles’ painted
    surfaces] that can/may/might be created
    via the physical interaction(s) between:

    a.) the surfaces of whatever means that
    are used to wash (& dry) the vehicles; and,
    b.) the vehicles’ paintwork...

    while doing Car Washing & Drying processes.

    Re: Can someone explain “wash induced marring”?

    This makes my day, knowing the real deal on the mitt idea, thanks Setec.

    Bill D the innovator. I like the BDM acronym.

    I have been reading E2Ks posts about the mitts.
    I recently started thinking how much I dislike walking back and forth to rinse a mitt.

    Now I need to get another couple few chenilles and start 2019 off right.
