  1. OK, OK, I may get one of the Green Monster Mitts from MFT, too! I did order one of the dogbone type MF sponges since Autopia was having a sale. I'll give it another try. I am assuming its pretty much the same as the MFT version. I'm a sucker for a discount! Which BLUE one are you referring to?
  2. Yea, I'm not honestly sure if I like sponges or not yet. Never would have considered them at all if Optimum hadn't recommended them. I do wish they were softer. I have to get my head around the fact that they don't supposedly scratch the surface. The Bone type sponges have always interested me but the size is a bit too big, at least with the ones I have seen. I think I remember this Meguiars sponges! LOL! Sounds like a big score at Big Lots! I have a couple Viking microfiber mitts (with the fingers) and they seem just fine though I have never compared brands. And I have lots of Autopia sheep skin mitts. Are those still being used by anyone? I guess I am still looking for the perfect solution. Yea, I know, there isn't one.
  3. On the subject of sponges, I am curious, has anyone had any experience with the Lake Country Grout sponge? At under $5 I wonder how different it is from the BRS? Or BGS?
  4. Thanks for the link. I haven't been in love with the BRS mainly because of the size. (I haven't really looked to see if I could cut it down without destroying it.) I would like a softer sponge but again the size is disconcerting. And at that price its a big risk, for me at least. Hmmm.
  5. Ok then, the multi-towel method sucks. I have the BRS but boy, it is BIG and un-wieldy. And I have the Blue Sponge but the few raised dimples that touch the surface don't seem particularly effective. Tell us, Ron, what is the GOLD sponge?
  6. I just got a few of the Edgeless 500 towels which are very soft, long napped towels. But I find that they don’t slide easily when used to wipe a wet surface whether it be ONR or a QD. A folded towel tends to grab and almost roll up or come out of your hand when wiping. It kind of forces you to put more pressure against the surface than you feel comfortable with. Disappointing.
  7. Are the Minx towels a long nap?
  8. Oh no, that’s a bummer. Those are the same towels I was looking at for the same washing process. It’s obviously not a fool-proof method. Ugh. When things like this happen to me, and they do, I get so frustrated and explain to my wife “Why is it so hard to have nice things?” Whimper, whimper.
  9. Interesting! I never would have considered using it as a cleaner.
  10. No worries, I will gladly convert to ONR. I’m getting soft in my old age. Besides, I just ordered a gallon of the wonderjuice.
  11. Thanks for the feedback. And the reminder of past discussions on which quick detailer is best for household duties. I still prefer the fresh scent of Zaino.
  12. I’m afraid I don’t know about Tort. I’ve lost track of most of the old Autopia moderators. Even David Bynon is off to yet another career. A half gallon for washing is amazing. After so many years of flushing a mitt with running water after practically every stroke I feel uncomfortable using so little liquid to wipe off dirt. Even after presoaking a panel with ONR spray, I like to have a saturated dripping sponge to wipe the surface clean. I understand I am over-doing it, and I know it’s not supposed to be necessary, but it’s a psychological barrier I have yet to overcome. I think that I may be more satisfied using the two bucket method that you are using but I will probably be more wasteful with the ONR mix for a while.
  13. Thanks, I need to gain confidence that ONR is encapsulating the dirt on the surface and that it is truly released in the bucket. I like doing a presoak as well.
