How I Tested The Gtechniq WM2 Microfiber Mitt

For my Gtechniq WM2 Microfiber Mitt review, I took into account the size, softness, length and density of the cleaning fibers. Fit, comfort, and features, like different washing surfaces, as well as price, were also taken into account. I then tested the Gtechniq WM2 Microfiber Mitt by cleaning my car, where I observed how it felt in use. I also took into account how heavy it felt and how much shampoo it could hold. Finally, I also considered how the Gtechniq WM2 Microfiber Mitt felt in use and how easy it was to wash with.

First Impressions

The Gtechniq WM2 Microfiber Mitt is exactly the sort of quality product you’d expect from Gtechniq. It feels very nicely made, and everything about it says quality. From the feel of the fibers to the cuff, and the quality of the stitching inside.


The Gtechniq WM2 Microfiber Mitt features a mixture of longer microfiber strands, and shorter, more densely-packed fibers. These different lengths of strands make this wash mitt better at capturing dirt and keeping it away from your paintwork. There’s an inner foam core, which has been designed to absorb a large amount of shampoo for easier washing. That also allows you to wash larger areas of the bodywork in one go. On top of that, Gtechniq says that it’s got ultra-low-friction glide characteristics, which help minimize swirl marks.

What’s It Like To Use The Gtechniq WM2 Microfiber Mitt

Everything about this wash mitt is very good and it’s really nice to use. It’s a good size that fits a wide variety of hands, but isn’t too big and doesn’t feel too loose. It’s the perfect size for efficient washing, as well as being easy to squeeze into tighter spaces. The foam core really does suck up loads of shampoo, which means you can easily clean large areas of the bodywork in one go.

The elasticated cuff is a little loose, but that makes it easy to spin the mitt around when you want a clean side. It’s also got a little grab strap inside, handy for when you need more grip on your mitt. I would have liked to see some sort of scrubbing surface, but it’s a very minor gripe.

The Verdict

The Gtechniq WM2 is a superb wash mitt. It’s plush, super-soft, and is lovely to use. It honestly does everything so well. It’s good value, too. A scrubbing mesh would have helped it get a perfect score, but it’s a very minor gripe. You honestly can’t go wrong with this wash mitt.
