    Griots PFM drying towel

    Hi all,

    I am going to continue giving my feedback as i try new products as it seems to be the best way i can contribute back to the forums. all that said:

    Recently i purchased a griots PFM drying towel from Advance auto. Its the 25 dollar one. 55504 is the part# I dont think it is available from griots any longer but it can be had other places.

    First off this thing is heavy for a microfiber towel. It looks like 4 smaller pieces have been sown together. Its nice and thick too

    Drying: WOW, ive been using waffle weave drying towels for years. Ive NEVER had a towel completely dry a surface after a simple wipe. Out of the package it only did about half my car before needing to be wrung out. After running it through the washing machine, it was able to do my entire s4. Its not that big of a towel. I have no doubts the bigger ones they offer would dry some pretty large vehicles. Its low effort to use. Not much more to say

    Bottom line, this is a great drying towel.

    Ah, see...they're probably one of the best detailing products on the market. They pleasantly live up to the manufacturer's claims.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Yup, they are so much better than anything I've used in the past. I'm as happy with the PFM towels I have as I was in the mid 80's with a good worn-in chamois LOL.

    Nice towel for sure. I believe you can still buy that in the AG outlet MF section. I have a couple of those, but IMO I feel the other grey PFM’s are a higher GSM (55590 & 55596) and can easily dry off most vehicles completely, even without a hood LSP. If they do have a decent LSP, will easily dry a couple cars.

    one of the bigger ones is definitely on my wish list. But this thing was a game changer coming from using a chemical guys and Meguiars waffle weave drying towel.

    I agree. These style of towels are a staple for anyone that washes vehicles in any capacity.

    PFM really is amazing. Just be careful if using a drying aid that leaves protection behind as with time it will reduce the towel’s performance. Having said that, I use mine with CarPro Ech2o and don’t have issues.

    I have some of the 25x35 towels (55590) but I've found myself preferring the smaller 16x16 towels (55586). They're more manageable and less likely to touch the ground if you're drying the bottom of panels.

    I like using the full size towel because there’s less touching involved. You can lay and drag the large 1 compared to having to go over every square inch of the paint with your hand using a small towel folded in quarters.

    For me, The small 1 is nice for waterless wash drying.

    The PFM's are awesome. I have 3 and I am not a pro detailer.
