    Yes, no problems. I do pretty much all the laundry for the garage and afterwards, I fold them and store them and when I fold them I also do a quick inspection like I show here,


    How, why & when to inspect your microfiber towels when detailing cars


    FWIW - I consider the above the most important article I've ever written.

    Re: Review: Wolfgang Uber SiO2 Silica Spray

    Nice rpeview, as SiO2 spray on sealant, it’s a different approach to McKee’s Si02 sealant where you have to spray and rinse with stream of water. Wolfgang Uber here and the blackfire Si0 spray sealant seems Similiar where they both can be applied to a clean and dry, prepped surface, Can McKee’s SiO2 be applied the same way !??? Or just applied with streamed water

    Re: Review: Wolfgang Uber SiO2 Silica Spray

    I’m not attacking this product or any SiO2 spray on product but how do they measure hardness when it is so very thin? It is not thick like a coating product. I think that this is the only SiO2 spray product that speaks to hardness. Most manufacturers use pencil hardness as a measure and we are all familiar with 9h being the hardest (I’ve seen 10h but I don’t believe it). So is this product 1h? What measure do they use?

    How long it lasts is a loaded question. If you keep it garaged and never touch it and oxygen does no harm it lasts indefinitely. Now on a DD that lives in Florida and gets subjected to rain and 100 degree days if it lasts two weeks you will be lucky. You have to wash the vehicle anyway so reapply. Mix it with your favorite rinseless wash and create a cheap drying aid.

    How does it compare to PBL Coating Booster or Blackfire SiO2 Spray or (fill in the blank)well buy all three and put them side by side and if you see a difference I will be shocked. I have tested 12 different SiO2 sprays and there was only one that looked different on application and in 24 hours I couldn’t tell one from another as they all looked good. How many manufacturers show pictures of their product with another product side by side and say their product is glossier than another? Zero. Take that for what it’s worth.

    I would think they measure hardness like many others, that is, via the marketing department. Or in this his case, pencil hardness gives way to 'rock hardness'.

    I'm sure this product works well, as many similar products do; the hyperbole of the description does stand out though.
