Shopping for cloths and towels to use when caring for your car can be confusing. The available options for fibers, weaves, colors and sizes go on and on! We’re going to simplify the process. For most any task, micro fiber cloths and towels are superior. Micro fiber is lint-free, super-soft, and very absorbent. Its filaments are typically split and re-split into ultra-fine fibers, allowing the cloths to lift and trap dirt and moisture, rather than push it around as cotton does (see illustration). Caring for your micro fiber is easy. Machine wash (only with other micro fiber) using a liquid detergent. Do not add any fabric softeners or bleach. Air dry, or tumble dry on a high heat setting (do not use dryer sheets).
