Wash Brush

I have always hand washed my Mustangs and cars. But now with 2 GC's i need a better way to reach and clean. Anyone have a really good wash brush they know of?

Maybe this?

Re: Wash Brush

My vote would be for the third one (on eBay). The ones with bristles have always scared me. They always look so abrasive compared to the microfiber/sheepskin wash mitts.

Re: Wash Brush

First I take it for a ride down the road to get most of the water off.
Then I stand on the rear wheels to get most of the roof with my sponge.
The front part of the roof I just open the front doors and stand on the sill.

Re: Wash Brush

Definitely "NO" to the ebay one. If you care about your paint, stick to the reliable detailing sites. Why no a step stool? You may already have this. I use the same media I've always used, and simply use a step stool or 5' step ladder.

Re: Wash Brush

Boar's hair is a great way to go! Just make sure that there are no synthetic bristles in the brush. Those that you have linked to appear to be of excellent quality.

There's nothing wrong with a good microfiber mitt, either, but don't be scared of using a brush made entirely of boar bristles.

I use a step stool. You need one if you are going to dry the top anyway to prevent water spots.

I put it in park/exit, and just steal a good non-skid step stool from the missus.
I dunno where the missus got it, but you can get washing brushes for most power sprayers--just be careful with the sprayer itself and never use too fine a point as it will remove decals, trim, etc.

As for drying, I use the same step stool, but have discovered that a leaf blower works really well for removing all but the last few drops. From there, a chamois or even synth chamois gets rid of the last and preps it nicely for waxing--where I'm still struggling with semi-liquid nanowax or good old fashioned carnauba.

Re: Wash Brush

Walmart sells a microfiber type pad that is on an extended pole. Works great.

Re: Wash Brush

I have a leaf blower that i specifically use only for drying cars. I lean towards the micro fiber pad one. After alot of searching I think im going with this...

AutoFiber Car Wash Mop Pad

By the way Im almost positive its the same one on ebay

I prefer to use a glove so that I can get into every nook.
