I have been using the prototype version for about 3 months now and love it! I just got the new ones in and they look great. Below are the details, this mitt will change washing cars forever!
The makers of the Edge 2000 foam pads have reinvented the wash mitt! By forming a pocket between two layers of their unique foam compositions, they’ve made a foam wash mitt that retains its shape, sheds dirt and fits your hand like a glove.
The ShMITT is a multi-purpose foam mitt that uses soap-retaining foam to wash the car, rather than natural sheepskin or sea sponges. While these are excellent tools, they have a shorter life span than engineered foam. The ShMITT utilizes material that has already been proven safe and effective on vehicle surfaces because it’s the same foam found in Edge 2000 pads.
The ShMITT is available in two varieties:
White/Yellow Wash ShMITT: Wash with the gentle white foam front. This is the same foam found in the Edge white ultrafine polishing pad. The soft, closed-cell foam sheds dirt, rather than retaining it. Dirty water is able to escape from under the mitt thanks to the convoluted wave surface. Since the dirt is not rubbed into the paint, wash-induced swirls are less likely.
Because the ShMITT is made of smooth foam, it will not leave threads or fibers behind on the vehicle. The solid foam mitt maintains its shape through countless uses. The beveled edge allows the ShMITT to clean in crevices and seams easily.
The backside of this ShMITT is made from coarse yellow foam. This foam works well as a spot scrubber to remove insects and tar from your vehicle’s exterior. Use it on lower body panels and problem areas as you wash your vehicle.
Black Wheel ShMITT: The black foam is very coarse. The black ShMITT is best used for scrubbing wheels, tires, and the undercarriage. It can also be used for stubborn spots on interior vinyl, but not if it’s already been used on the tires or undercarriage. This could cause cross-contamination. Our recommendation is to reserve this mitt for cleaning wheel wells and tires. The rugged foam will easily dislodge tar and grime using your regular car shampoo and water, or a degreaser, like DP Cleanse-All exterior surface cleaner.
Features of both the ShMITT Wash Mitt and the Wheel ShMITT:
1. Fits like a glove, not a bag
2. Ergonomic design reduces carpal tunnel stress
3. Completely manmade materials
4. Saves water – rinses clean in seconds
5. Environmentally responsible manufacturing: all materials are recycled
6. Foam resists deterioration so texture stays consistent
7. Won’t rot or mildew
