Have a new car and wanted to keep it looking shiny and found jumbo car sponge for 15p in fulbourn tesco cambridge.

Thought at 15p it was a pretty good deal and might help someone out.

Perfect value for window cleaning, kids bath etc, heat added. However, I'd never let one of these things near a new or even a car up to 5 years old as it ruins the paint work. If it was a car I didn't care about then I'd consider it for ease but even then I'd rather treat my car with a bit of respect and use a lambs skin hand mitt or similar.

Well I don't have any kids for a start, but when I was a kid I do clearly remember the fun that you could have with a sponge over your head full of water in the bath.

Also kids tend not to be bathing in all the grit from the roads so tend not to end up scratched.

yup, these are a no no for a car.

micro fibre all the way

My husband is a plasterer he uses these to dampen down, ordered 10 with my grocery order, he was chuffed. Thankyou for posting

Coatbridge store had ticket on shelf for 15p,unfortunately,there was no sponges...great buy if you can get them,ideal for cleaning wheelie bins and planters and the likes,obviously not cars (according to others lol)..heat added

EVERYDAY DAMN ESSENTIAL

Always needed me a sponge, thanks OP. Now I won't smell like s**t

Sponges still useful for cleaning cars, can use them for wheels and exhausts and I use one cut down to to apply tyre gel and trim gel etc

You're washing your car man.......not buffing your Hampton..

You should *never* touch a car with a sponge. Ever.

Unless you like swirl marks.

I agree with astec123.sponges get small bits of grit in them and DO scratch your cars paintwork, get a woollen mitt etc. I would not use a sponge on my car, good price at 15p though... use it for wetting wallpaper before you strip your walls,,,

So what do you car lovers use for cleaning your car?

What if your car isn't a Jumbo ?

Do people actually think microfibre cloths and lambs wool mitts can't have grit in them?

No they don't think they wont have grit in them, but the science behind how a lambs wool mitt work compared to a sponge means they offer a better clean and less damage to the paintwork. Anyone using one will use a 2 bucket method of cleaning the car anyway.

P.S. Microfibre cloths are for wiping down once it's clean and for applying polishes.

They lick them clean and blow them dry.......

Always used a sponge, never had a scratch or swirl mark. But based on the advice in the thread I will only use a mitt made from a billy goats coin purse from now on.
