    Re: Waxing and Polishing Towels?

    For exterior paint, I like The Rag Company's (particularly the Edgeless line) offerings and the Griot's Garage PFM wax removal and detailing towels the best. For interior detailing I just use Meguiar's Supreme Shine.

    Wasnít a fan of the creature.
    I too use the 365 for polish removal, paint prep and spray sealants.
    The one thing that bothered me about the creature was that the edges would fray alot.
    I used it for spray and wipe a rinseless wash after a do it yourself rinse on my truck during the winter. no scratches or marring which is good but I doubt I would order them again.

    Eagle edgeless 350 is a go to as well

    Re: Waxing and Polishing Towels?

    So with my finish being soft it sounds like the kirklands are probably not the best option. Rag Co Edgless 70/30 365gsm sound like an option. Then there is the question of the foam app. Let me know. Thanks

    Re: Waxing and Polishing Towels?

    I have way too many towels, but I'm always on the watch for something that's a good performer and a good value. There are some exceptions, but I prefer edgeless construction, the same nap on both sides and light colors, so dirt or contaminants are easy to spot. One that checks all the boxes for me when using a QD or Waterless Wash are these: Edgeless Microfiber Quick Detail Towel
    I don't know the science behind it, but these just seem to absorb better and prevent streaking with a minimum of wiping, noticeably better than plusher and more expensive towels I have from both AG and TRC.

    Do you think these from some GUYS compare well to the Gold Jr.s?

    I feel you can never have too many towels. While the edgeless QD towels from AG are pretty nice, I wouldn’t say they perform better than towels from TRC.

    i've used those microfiber towels from those guys and they tend to degrade/matt-up quicker. IME, the gold plush jr's are better...

    Donít know will order them. Just thought it was weird. Same color, gsm (close?), both 70/30. Both from China. For the half the price Iím gonna try them.

    All in all though if I had to do again would buy a case of creature edgeless for 195$. And about 10 16x16 PFMís and call it a day. (My plan on next order)
