Lambskin Mitt Post Wash Care

Question

I bought a Lambskin Mitt just before the website change over.  On the old website it had the description of what to do for post wash care but the new website does not.  It just notes that the mitt will lose fibers prematurely if not cared for properly post wash.  Anyone know what the proper post wash care is for the lambskin mitt?

While I do not have the "official" Adam's recommendation, I can tell you how I have done my older Non-Adam's in the past and plan on doing with the Adam's one when it arrives.  A Lambskin wash mitt will last you many years if taken care of and used under the optimal conditions.

 

  • Rinse it well immediately after use
  • Use water volume, not a hard spray
  • Rinse the outside and put the hose on the inside also
  • Gently wring it out after the rinsing
  • Hang it up where the fibers are not touching anything and let it air dry
  • When you wash it, treat it like the microfiber towels

If you ever get anything stuck in it, don't try to pull it out - get a pair of scissors and carefully cut it out.

 

A few addition items to keep your Lambskin mitt lasting longer and ensure that you always get the best possible wash.

  • Always do a two bucket wash with grit guards in place
  • Use a Microfiber mitt or regular Washpad for bug infested front ends
  • Don't use it on wheels or wheel wells
  • Avoid exceptionally dirty areas or places with lots of grit
  • Exhaust tips may leave it strained, especially diesel's
  • Be careful around emblems, badges, etc., to prevent snags
  • To keep the Lambskin mitt for a long time, only use it on well maintained vehicles
