I do that as well. I buy the cheaper mitts and then toss them after a while. I think there is greater danger in scratching the paint with an older, expensive mitt, than there is using the cheaper models and just tossing them after several washes.
I usually have 2. When the car wash mitt has been through enough wash cycles, it gets relegated to wheel only use. And a new one goes on the car, and the old wheel mitt goes in the can.
