    Xtrafluff orange microfiber wash mitt, awesome value.

    XtraFluff Orange Microfiber Wash Mitt

    I finally got to try the Xtrafluff orange MF wash mitt. All I can tell you is, this is a no brainer purchase. Everyone should own at least two of these. I ordered this along with the Gyeon Smoothie MF mitt. The Gyeon mitt has not been used yet.

    The only difference I could tell between the two is the Gyeon has a noticeably thicker sponge material sewn into mitt.

    The cuff and fibers feel and look identical in my opinion.

    My only complaint and it really doesn't bother me is both mitts are sewn with a small single stitch in the center of the interior of the mitt. This gives the user a better grip and actually helps center the mitt when flipping to the clean side of the mitt. I just don't like the feel, but I will adapt and may come to like the feature. I switch between holding the mitt on the outside and putting my hand inside as designed.

    How did the orange mitt perform. One word: perfect!

    Glided across the paint effortlessly. Released dirt well, cleaned the paint well, and was the perfect thickness. The foam sponge liner and the longer fibers held a noticeable more amount of water/soap than the Meguiar's MF mitt I normally use.

    I look forward to trying the Gyeon mitt and comparing the two mitts performance. I have my doubts that the Gyeon mitt ($25) is going to impress me three times as much as the Xtrafluff orange mitt($7.95).

    Any plans of trying these mitts with rinseless washing?

    I haven't tried the mitt as a rinseless wash mitt, but I imagine it would work well.

    I'm curious whether you tried lambswool Gyeon Q2M Mitt. It has very fine individual fibers that also are not looped.
