    Default Which Microfiber Towels to Choose?

    Need some help in regards to which microfiber towels I should use. I know there are a billion different ones out there and I got these Heininger 5400 GarageMate Towels a while back but they don't soak up any of the water. All they do is spread it around and around which is annoying me. I just got a new Accord Coupe so I want to take care of it. Plan on putting Xpel paint protection on it soon but what microfiber towels do you guys suggest going with?

    These two have been recommended to me by some friends:

    Dry Me Crazy | Microfibermadness.de

    Amazon.com: The Supreme Guzzler Waffle Weave by Cobra: Automotive

    And I scratched the black side window trim on the passenger side from using a rough towel . I'll post a picture of it but was wondering if there's any way to fix that.

    I have the guzzlers and they work well. From what I've heard, the microfibermadness towels tend to fall apart and lint everywhere, but I have not personally used them.

    I'm leaning towards getting a pack of the guzzlers since I've seen a few people use them with no complaints.

    I love my Adam's Great White towels. They're a big waffle weave towel and they soak up everything.

    Dont take in any of these comments until you have seen Larrys video. He will explain the reason behind the % and why each material is used to create the microfiber, and how to properly use and care for them.

    ^^ Those are nice, but any more GSM is sketch those are already at 480 GSM

    Sorry, I did not read you original thread. The moving of water around with microfibers will happen to all of them. You need to do the presoak trick to loosen up the weaves. It is not a type, it is a learning technique. Larrys video explains all. Do not go out and just buy shit, learn what the F microfiber is FIRST!

    Microfiber Madness makes the best I've ever used. I have thousands invested in MFs as a detailer.
