    Suggestions for best washboy sponge.

    I want really soft sponge and low water retention.

    Just can’t settle with a particular one.

    Bin the washboy and sponge. Use a microfibre cloth. You can wring them virtually dry. I use the yellow ones from Costco, but you can get blue ones (a bit thinner) from Screwfix.

    I like them @Sean Kelly@Sean Kelly for buffing the tiles after. Not thought to try them to rinse them. I'll give them a try:thumbsup:

    Microfibre cloths, the Kent ultra plush ones are fantastic for the second wash, and leave a nice clean acceptable finish but for the first wash, washboy or hand sponge !
