    Re: Griots PFM drying towel

    I got the same towel from the same store about 4-5 years ago and am just now about to retire it. Starting to get a lot of threads coming loose and catching on things. BUT! That is after hundreds of car washes and dozens of times being cleaning in the washing machine. For the price it held up well, and still works great, just snagging on corners on panels and such. I was sad to see this particular size no longer offered... The larger one is too large(imo but I don't wash SUVs or trucks, ever) and the smaller size is too small, adding time to the process.

    I got a couple of the mid-size Gyeon Silk Drying towels, as they are similar is material on one side. Handling them I can tell they probably won't be as good, but they had good reviews and a few people compared them to the PFM towels. I sense I'll be settling for multiple smaller PFM towels at the end of the day. As mentioned above by someone else I find the massive towels too cumbersome and clunky for drying lower panels close to the ground. To each his own.
    I'm Polish and I like to polish.

    You can get these from AG and other places but griots doesn’t sell them. There smaller than the standard ones (28x20 vs 35x25).

    They may not be the 1120 gsm like the black border ones but they work great and will dry a whole car or small suv.

    +1 - The Griot's 55504 at 28x20 I find works perfectly on a small suv - enough to dry completely without the dragging of the big towels. Just ordered a backup -

    Re: Griots PFM drying towel

    The Griots PFM is still a favorite of mine but even one better is their PFM Edgeless drying towel. It picks up every drop of water on the first pass. PouncingPanzer made a good point about the threads coming loose. I have quite a few of those too. The towel keeps getting caught on the K of emblem of my wife's Buick.
    I believe in treating everybody with respect, and clean cars. That’s what I believe in.

    The edgeless is nice but just too big.

    I had some threads get caught on emblems and become loose as well. I just grab some scissors and cut off the excess. Works like a charm.

    I dry my car with air and that gets the car 98% dry so 1 16x16 PFM is all I need for my little focus.
