    When it's on SALE - GETS SOME! - Edgeless Microfiber Towels

    When it's on SALE - GETS SOME! - Edgeless Microfiber Towels


    I've done this a number of times in the past, that is start a new thread to alert you that NOW is the time to buy some of the more expensive but COOL products so you can get the best bang for your buck.

    You can either trust me.... or read a few my my write-ups below.



    Mike I trust you, give me the link to buy now.


    The best deal is to purchase these towels by the 12-packs and get as many 12-packs as your budget allows.


    Forrest Green Edgeless Microfiber towels - 12 Pack $19.99

    Cobra Storm Gray Edgeless Microfiber Polishing Cloth - 12 Pack - $19.99








    Mike I need more information.


    No problemo.....

    Click the below links, see the cars I detailed and in these write-ups - I include a pictures of everything it takes to do this kind of work including..... how many towels I went through....


    Review: IGL Poly Ceramic Coating & IGL Compounds and Polishes - GREAT ABRASIVE TECHNOLOGY







    Review: Dr Beasley's Nano Surface Primers and 1201 Paint Coating - 1947 Dodge Panel Delivery Streetrod





    What does it cost to install a ceramic paint coating? Example #1







    Ceramic Coating & Paint Correction 1932 Ford Roadster








    Speed Master Work Inspection Light







    Original Paint Restoration - 1970 Bronze Metallic Corvette - Pinnacle Jeweling Wax- Porter Cable










    Must Have Microfiber! At least my opinion



    Towels for removing Polishes, Waxes, Sealants, AIOs and Coatings

    If a towel is soft enough to remove a polish without causing harm to the paint then it's soft enough to wipe off finishing waxes, finishing sealants, cleaner/waxes and the final buff for removing high spots after applying a ceramic paint coating. Here's what I've switched my classes over to and I use myself. They are SIMPLE and cost effective. Here's why I like them,


    1: Edgeless
    They have no seemed edge. A seemed edge is not a bad thing because if you hold a towel CORRECTLY you don't wipe with the edges. Duh. But by not having an edge they become bubba-proof and that's a bonus for newbies and people that don't really care about good technique.


    2: Low pile length.
    Long fibers mean it's easy for contaminants to LODGE into the fibers and NOT wash out and thus contaminate the towel and eventually scratch paint.


    3: Low pile length means EASY and FAST to inspect.
    If you have not read my article or watched my video on inspecting towels do so here.


    4: Same weave on both sides.
    I waste a lot of time trying answering the question - which side for what? - when using towels that have a flat weave on one side and a fluffy weave on the other side. I teach a lot of classes, I dare to say I have more people (paying classes), go through my classes than any other instructor and any other class so I get asked a LOT of questions by a LOT of people and the towel questions are good and they always come up. By switching my classes over to the Forrest Green Edgeless towels I save time and avoid this question. Not a big deal to someone that doesn't answer a lot of questions but a it is something I deal with and I like to make my classes fun and easy.


    5: Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
    By this I mean, these towels are not to hard, not too soft they're just right for most paint related car detailing duties. They are not perfect for wiping off compounds but they work and I have something to share for this.

    6: Did I mention they are soft?

    Isn't that one of the reasons we use microfiber instead of terrycloth or other options? Clearcoats are SCRATCH-SENSITIVE - this means even though they are harder than traditional paints they still scratch easy and of course there are some very soft clearcoats and anyone that has worked on soft paint knows a soft towel is crucial.


    My personal inspection
    I inspected each one of these towels and LOOKED at the fiber weave and simply FELT them and yeperdoo - they all feel the same except the white towel. Could just be me or maybe it's the processing the towel goes through to make it white, but it feels softer and more limp. Nothing wrong with that as it makes the towel better at jobs where you need a towel that is less stout and more gentle, for example for doing the final buff on very soft paints.

    I agree. These are all I use but keep in mind, I mostly do "Prep Washes", not maintenance washes.

    Cobra Blue Micro-Chenille Wash Mitt


    There is a 4-pack available

    Cobra Micro-Chenille Wash Mitt 4-Pack



    You save 10 bucks with the 4-pack.

    Just to clarify, you're talking about the WASH MITTS?

    Your last sentence uses the word TOWELS.
