So I was at autozone looking for some wash mitts b/c I didn't like mine. While I was checking out I saw these in a bin: AutoZone/Microfiber chenille sponge (873900)

Default This beat my wash mitt by a mile...

So I was at autozone looking for some wash mitts b/c I didn't like mine. While I was checking out I saw these in a bin:
AutoZone/Microfiber chenille sponge (873900) | Sponge | AutoZone.com

They were $2.50 each, so I put back the mitt I had in my hand and bought the last three they had b/c they looked perfect for me. When I got home, I ran them through the washer and a low dry cycle and they don't shed now. For me these worked soooo much better than a typical wash mitt (since I don't actually put my hand inside anyway). These are very soft. Worked great with my grit guards and hold a lot of soapy water... One was cheaply made and tore in the washer/dryer, but the other two held up. I highly recommend if you are making a trip out,... for $2.50 these really beat the crap out of regular microfiber mitts in my opinion. I would order more online at that price but it appears these are only in the store...

Oh yeah, if anyone gets this, be careful to remove both ends of the little plastic wire that holds it to the cardboard display box it comes in.

Just thought I'd pass on my "find" since it is practically free for one of these, and I like it so much, lol.

Well, it definitely was nicer to wash with than a mitt. And most mitts are attached to the packaging they are sold in, in the same way. I guess one of them being defective is bad, but for two fifty, and the way this thing is so soft and holds so much soapy water, I thought it was great. No shedding at all after you machine wash it and dry it once. In any case, I like it and just wanted to share what I thought was a bargain. I guess no good deed goes unpunished. lol!

No harm, no foul.

If you want something that doesn't shed and holds a ton of soap, you should check out the Adam's pads. Those things are a soap magnet. Starting at $8.95, they are worth every nickle. Use my discount code and save even more.

I use adam' s wash pad-the big white rectangular/square one. It holds soap like nobodys business and has held up for a year. I rinse it after each wash and air dry. It looks brand new! I highly recommend it.

Okay, I ordered a couple of the Adam's pads to try them out. I used your discount code Junkman, so I hope they kick you back something or some extra discounts to you on your future purchases from them or something like that.
