    Meguiars Micro-fibre towels

    I know micro-fibre towels are a pretty common thing but I'd never used them before so I thought I'd post yet another review Today I detailed the Z and used them to buff off the dried wax. It made buffing ALOT easier I only had to go over one spot a couple of time and the towels really reduced the amount of dired wax dust. Definitely good stuff don't know how I ever waxed without them.

    When you wash the towels themselves, do you use a detergent in the wachine machine or?

    We've got a baby in the house, so we've always got Dreft around - that's what I use. It seems to work really well, and leaves no residue. I have to be quick when I wash them, though. My wife always comes by and tries to throw a dryer sheet in with them.

    No fabric softener!!!!

    I read that the best way to wash them is with liquid detergent and let it air dry.

    I've tumble-dried them (very low heat) for years with no ill effects. It really doesn't take as long as you might think without heat, since the spin cycle on the washer pretty much wrings them dry.

    some things to consider when buying MF

    use the CD test before you touch your car with it. take a blank (not scratched) CD and wipe it with the towel. If it scratches the CD, it will scratch your clear coat. so dont use it.

    Meguiars MF passes the test. Ive used it plenty. MF doesnt last forever though, so throw it out after so many uses.

    Stay away from cheap MF not intended for cars, it can and will mar your finish.

    My favorite MF is made by Cobra, you can buy online. great stuff.

    Good to know. Thanks. I stay away from any cheap car detailing stuff. It's almost never good if its cheap.
