Insulated Mitts?

I was wondering if anyone knew of someone that made insulated washing Mitts? My car has yet to go to a Car wash and I wanna keep it that way....prob is that it gets so cold in the winter and was hoping that there was a mitt I can use to wash the car and my hands won't turn into ice blocks at the same time! Any help would be appreciated!

My Ride: is clean & protected
We are located in Albany, NY so I can feel your pain with how cold it is. I do sell this sheep skin wash mitt that is super nice to clean your car with. It feels like leather on the inside so the water doesn't seep right through. It's not water proof but it certainly has far less water in then a typical mitt. To stay warm while washing I put on a rubber glove underneath the wash mitt and then don't dunk the mitt in the water so far that the water will run into my glove. The job is still cold and no fun but it definitely keeps your hand warmer.

griotsgarage.com...they have a mit that has a rubber glove insert.

It sucks but this is a true test of how much you love your car.

Thanks guys for replying! I asked some of my friends and they also mentioned the rubber glove at Griotsgarage! I prob gonna order it! I guess I do love my car that much...the lowest temp I've washed it in was about 24 degrees! It was so cold that the water around the car started turning into slush! Someone also mentioned that I can use warm water from the hotwater heater or the sink facet....said it might be good to melt off any salt on the car...what do you guys think?
