When it comes to microfiber detailing towels for cars the options are seemingly endless. If you
understand some basic terminology and towel specifications finding the right
cloths for you will be easier.
First and foremost,
one thing that isn’t disclosed in the product specifications is the general
quality of the yarn. All of our auto detailing towels use premium AA grade yarn with a fine denier. Many competitors with auto detailing towels (like what you will find in big box stores, or cheaper online sources) will use lower grade, and less expensive yarn, but will have the same product specifications (blend, weave, weight, pile, size, color), this creates a towel that looks and feels similar, but doesn’t perform as well.
GSM - Grams per Square Meter - Is the weight of
one piece of material one meter wide by one meter tall. Some people confuse it
with quality or plushness, but it is only a measure of weight.
Blend - Ratio of Material Components: Polyester
and Polyamide. Usually between 70/30 and 80/20. Lower quality competitors use
85/15, 90/10, 95/5, and 100% polyester.
Weave/Pile - The type of weave or knit of the
fabric, mostly related to the machine on which they are made and it’s settings.
You can have high pile and low pile weaves, smooth and with contours.
Size - Small or Large Microfiber Towels
Edge - How the edges of the towels are finished
Country of Origin - The country of manufacture.
