Hey all, does anyone have one of these?

I went to halfords after hearing raving reviews, paid £13.

Tried it out today, it was almost too hard for the car, and my did it suck.

It is very hard to squeeze out, and doesnt pick up any water in my opinion, just moves it around.

Sad to say I am sticking to my autoglym synthetic as it is 100 times better!

Anyone want this rag lol!

I have one but use something else now! (Sonus Der Wunder drying towel)

Did you wash it before its first use?

The best way to use it is to wet it first so the towel is not too wet but heavy enough to drag over a clean car like a matador with no rubbing, only ring out the excess water and not all of it so it stays heavy if you know what I mean! :roll:

Auto EXPRESS recommended the Armor All Polishing Cloth as a drying towel in 2008, and in 2006 the Meguiar's Duo-Fibre Super Towel won the Car Accessory of the year award for its drying performance.


In my opinion the Armor All product is exceptional for the money it costs; it is more absorbent that the Meguiar's cloth, but it isn't as good quality and I don't think it will last as long. When new it also can leave some fibres on the car, whereas the Meguiar's product does not. It is tremendous value for money though.

BTW we're also now stocking Collinite No476s as it just walked all over the competition in last week's car polish test.

I have the megs cloth and its brilliant :D
Make sure you soak it with clean water first, then wring it out and dry the car by wafting the towel over the panel like a bull fighter !! it soaks up well and is more gentle on the paint that way.

lol, leaf blower.

The autoglym fake chamois will do fine for me.

For those of you who have vacumed and polished the interior of ur car, when you have done drying the cars exterior with it, wash it out and then ring it out, then use it to go over the dash etc of the car. Cos it gets all of the dust out and makes it all shine nice again!

On a serious note, people do use these to avoid nasty scratches :x
I've seen this mentioned on 'DetailingWorld' and have seen it being used by Detail Matt.

A leaf blower is the answer

It certainly is
I have a nifty 4stroke Honda .........blows nearly all the water off
then a waffle thingy cloth finishes it off
job done
Specialist product companies do recommend blower for ultimate care thats where I got the idea from

Just changing (sort of) the subject slightly....

autobestbuy do you offer any discount on products to fellow Baby BMW members - getting a bit low so need to restock on a few things - collinite being one of them????

Just thought I would ask if that's not tooooooo cheeky :wink: :wink:
