MICROFIBRE CARE TIPS

Microfibre technology has revolutionised the automotive polishing/buffing towel industry with it's superior scratch free performance, easy cleaning, no linting and drying power over conventional towels that look like a snow storm when used and can see straight through the towels

They have made cheese cloth obsolete and threatened the chamois very existance in the top end detailing market

The best microfibre towels are made in south korea
Chinese towels simply cannot compare and only sell due to price

Some of these korean towels contain 225,000 fibres per square inch and are not cheap

So extending their lifetime so you can keep on using the same bunch of towels on your car is very important

here are my cleaning tips

MACHINE WASHING

Earths choice liquid laundry detergent is my number one favourite for towels
it contains an extremely low amount sodium laureth sulphate (reduces plushness in towels, slickness in paintwork) and many other factors, is phosphate free and made with many natural resources

Warm water is best for them
Do not machine dry or leave to dry on outdoor clothes line (risk of airborne dust contamination and bird poo on them)

Once they have gone through the whole wash cycle, take them out and put on an indoor rack, one at a time

Put one towel on the rack and spray them liberally with either Aussie Gold Showroom sealer glaze spray, Driven to Perfection Quick spray concentrate or Prima Slick

There are many detail sprays that contain alcohol and engine coolant and these can affect the softness and plushness of the towels and attack the fibres

Once sprayed well (both sides), do again with each towel

Let them dry indoors and they will soon be ready to serve you again with superb performance

PLEASE NOTE : Do not treat waffle weave or other drying towels as the products will prevent the towels from being able to absorb water as efficiently

It may make the drying towels hydrophobic

Our range of microfibre towels from microfibre korea which none are waffle weave, are totally fine to treat with each wash

Happy Cleaning and motoring

It seems as though meguiars is out of stock, and won't have more in Australia until early next year

Even the meguiars website states out of stock
Our beloved Hans Hartman here at FM bought the last one in Australia just the other day
