    Re: What is your favorite microfiber towel for waterless MAINTENANCE wash?

    I used to absolutely hate waterless washes and I still don't do a ton BUT when I do I use TRC Pluffles. It's the only towel that I've used for WW that I actually liked.

    I use it for rinseless/waterless washes. My understanding is it was specifically made for waterless wash use.

    Was first released as a drying towel. Most waffle weaves were but this added a plushness not found in most waffle weaves. Hence the 16x24 and 20x40 sizes.

    I too like the 16x16 for waterless washes. Just as good as the EE for rinseless. Larger size are great for drying with drying aid.

    Re: What is your favorite microfiber towel for waterless MAINTENANCE wash?

    Been using Chinchillas for a while now and while they work great it makes for a hard time to see exactly where the dirt is on the towel after a wipe. Sure you can lift up or roll back the towel to expose the clean leading edge.

    The problem arises when you have to stop for lunch, talk to someone, etc and come back and not remember which side you laid the towel down. Dirty side up, dirty side down, who knows. Especially after lunch. Im now on a quest to find white towels to mitigate this problem.

    Re: What is your favorite microfiber towel for waterless MAINTENANCE wash?

    My go to is usually a EE from TRC. But I will damn near any MF I have when doing a waterless. My process when doing waterless is I use one side of the towel per swipe. Go through more MF’s this way, but I feel it greatly reduces the chance of marring. I have a few MF’s so I don’t mind 15-20 on a waterless.

    Re: What is your favorite microfiber towel for waterless MAINTENANCE wash?

    Apart from drying, I really have no use for towels outside of the 300-400 gsm range. I'd probably use something along the lines of Poorboy DMTs, wipe with the plush side and buff off residue with the flat side. I think technique is more important, using plenty of towels, and a heavy saturation of waterless wash. Also having a light-colored towel so you can see buildup and a weave that releases all the dirt well when washed!

    I like platinum pluffles for this reason as they are white and itís easy to see the dirt. The eagle edgeless is also very easy to see dirt on lighter colors as well.
