I started the real cleaning this weekend, I have been washing for a couple of weeks now and just finally had time to polish and wax the top and bonnet.

Those microfibre towels ROCK!!! They take the dried wax off like no tomorrow. What used to be a serious workout and time commitment is nothing now. I also like that the microfibre applicators don't seem to such up so much wax as you are applying it.

Hear, Hear. I ordered a bunch from a GB last year through yosteve, kept some and gave a few others away to family and friends. I used them mostly for post-water-blade drying, and for buffing/removing wax etc. And touchup between washes, for interior cleaning, etc etc... you get the idea.

I even use the MF towels under the foam pad on my buffer to remove wax .. save a lot of time.

If you have a sewing machine or access to one you can make MF applicators by sewing them into small pockets and inserting the kitchen sponges with the green backing into them.

I made these from the 5/$4.97 Walmart MF towels.

Try to use Internet Explorer? Are you still having problems with out it? There are a bunch of java type programs associated with stuff that "moves" on the site. Maybe you can check your settings. Otherwise you can e-mail me [email protected]

Jesstzn, I don't have much as far as data is concerns (lemme contact the supplier). I can tell you they're one of the better plusher towels on the market and they don't scratch. I've sold this model for over a year and its quality has remained top notch. Many have purchased from 2 of my group buys on here. You can ask them about satisfaction.


As for uses, there's a ton. Here are some.

FOR CARS' EXTERIORS: For drying cars I recommend you use two towels: one to get the big water spots and the other to finish to a streak free shine. If you only have one MT then you could get most of the water off with another scratchless cloth and then finish with the MT. It also depends on your car's finish. I have so much wax on my car that it beads up so much that I am able to completely dry my car with one MT by frequently wringing the towel. On my sister's car (which is 5 years old), when I used an MF on her front windshield she had thought I used Rain-x because when it rained the water beaded from the towel buffing. I never new this (because my window is always clean, hehe), it makes that much of a difference.

FOR CARS' INTERIORS: It works wonders for the inside or your car. If you have any dust on this inside it will pick it right up. I do this sometimes at stop lights (some people really wonder what I'm doing). It won't scratch your instrument panel screen. It will make your rearview mirror shine streak free used dry or with a little "breath". The inside widows will also remain streak free (you can sprits a little water if there is gunk or whatever). If you have any chrome or wood trim, it will polish those right up too.

PERSONAL: Some people use them for hair or bath towels. One guy said he used it backpacking in Europe as his bath towel; so small and easy to carry yet very effective. I imagine if you're a swimmer it would be handy at the pool.

AT YOUR DESK: I also keep one by my computer. I invested so much money on that thing that I wipe it and the screen down constantly. I save one side for the screen and the other for all the plastic parts. It works well. You can also use it on your reading glasses, CD ROMs, and anything else that's glass or plastic that needs dusting or polishing with out scratching.

HOUSEWORK: Of course you can use it for housework like dusting, mirrors, dishes, spills, carpet spills, and windows. You can attach it to a cloth holder like those "disposable dusting cloths" that are weak and dust floors and other flat surfaces. There are so many uses around the house.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR TOWELS: It is important that you wash or rinse your towel regularly to free it from all the debris it picks up. I use Dawn and soak it in a bucket and then rinse very well and hang to dry. Many others machine wash with fabric softener free detergent and tumble dry low without dryer sheets and find good results. Any residue from fabric softeners and dryer sheets will show up on whatever you're cleaning. This is truly a special and unique product, it is recommended you save it for finishing work and save the initial dirty work for cheaper products.

Make sure you keep you towels separate depending on their duty. You don't want to mix up something for your car finish versus something you use around the house.

I'd be happy to get another five or six from you -- they've been great!

If there's no GB soon, I'll be getting some more from you anyway, along with some of the SS license plate screws.

Im just going to say that I bought some MF towels at autozone the other day. What a difference in softness, etc. Best part was waxing the car. The whole waxing of the car took less then an hour and a half to do (minus the roof) and was a whole lot easier to remove the wax then with the basic towels I use from around the house.

Yosteve, some members might like to see the applicators on group buy, too. Or, maybe a package deal like some towels plus some applicators. Just a thought. I'd probably be up for buying some of each. Thanks.
