Simoniz Genuine Sheepskin Wash Mitt
Good wash results will it lasts.
I bought this mitt at the beginning of summer and used it about once a week. I always rinsed it after use and allowed it to air dry. I did find that it did shrink and was quite stiff after it dried, so I always allowed it to soak in the wash for a few minutes before use. The results after using this mitt are quite good, never any swirls or spot on my paint. So after a summer of regular use, the mitt finally started braking down during the last wash, leaving strands of fur all over my car and small fluffs in the rinse water. So thats about 16 washes before the mitt decided to die. I guess I got my moneys worth, but would prefer spending a few extra bucks for something I can get a few years out of.
End result, if you're worried about your car paint then this mitt is a good choice. If you want more bang for your buck, you might want to consider a different mitt.

Poor Quality Sheepskin
I recommend skipping on this product and either look for another brand of sheepskin wash mitt or get a chenille mitt - either Simoniz or Armor All. The sheepskin of these new mitts are of poor quality; it is rough and uneven!
In the past,this WAS a recommended product but now is recommended to be avoided.

Brand Name does not equal quality.
I bought this because I thought it was a premium product. However, after using it for the first time, there seemed to be a lot of bits of fluff coming off the mitt. By the third time (washing two cars) it became unusable and we bought a new one from a different manufacturer.

Avoid! Do not buy!
It only lasts 12 washes in 6 months. After each wash, it will shed chunks of hair like a cat! When I left it air dry, the skin will turn rock hard once it's dry. And shrinks half the size after few months. Finally on the 6th wash, the seams broke apart. It's a total junk. Worst purchase ever!

Don't buy - very poor quality
First one came apart after about 1/2 car wash. Second one lasted for 3 car wash.
It seems the 'brand name' is only a sign for a higher price not a better quality.

I purchased one of these at the beginning of last summer and with my weekly washes it didn't start to fall apart until the fall. I would say 20+ washes is a pretty good run for one of these.
I keep my cars paint nicely polished and this wash mitt never left so much as a single micro scratch in it. I would recommend this product to anyone who is concerned with such small things as micro scratches. I bought another one to start this car washing season off right!
Tip, when your done using it rinse it out well in cold water, then hang it up to dry. I use a metal coat hanger folded in half with the ends bent down, and the hook bent up to hang mine up. This holds the inside of the mitt open for drying so that it can dry inside and out.

Very soft and effective mitt for washing the car. Only problem I had is that after a few washes bits of the mitt would start to come off.

1 time use only
Use the wash mitten 1 time allowed to dry at next use found the inside leather stuck together and when using large portions of the sheep skin fur would fall out on smooth surface and new vehicle painted panels. It appears to be a problem in the tanning and bleaching process

after only 3 weeks of use the mitt started to torn apart while i was physically using it to wash my car. no good.

Best Wash Mitt I've Used
We purchsed this wash mitt a year ago and it's still intact and works very well. The mitt is soft and not abrasive to vehicle paint. Make sure to rinse and dry it well to preserve it's use.
