What are the best microfiber towels on the market?
If you are thinking about detailing your car internally or externally, you can’t go without microfiber towels. They serve different purposes like drying, removing birds poop, debris, and can also be used in waxing and polishing.
People often don’t care what they are using and they use old t-shirts, dusting cloth for drying and cleaning of their vehicle after a wash
But that’s dangerous for the clear coat as well as the shine and they end up having scratches all over the car’s surface.
Here we have mentioned the best microfiber towels that are specially built for the vehicle and are safe to use on the car.
1. Top rated the best microfiber towel – Chemical Guys MIC_781_01 Waffle Weave
Chemical Guys waffle weave microfiber towel is made up of premium quality fabric like 70% polyester and 30% polyamide, unlike any other towels which are not soft and have the risk of scratching your car.
It is large enough ( 36” x 25” ) to tackle the whole car or other large vehicles.
The waffle groove pattern comes in handy while removing the dirt or debris because its pattern holds the dirt leaving behind the clean and shiny vehicle.
It is also very effective in drying the car. This is the premium microfiber towel from chemical guys which can be easily reused after washing.
|Could be a great upgrade for those who use chamois towels||It is thin which means that excess water after a fresh wash may required water blades to remove excess water then it does the job very well|
|Large enough to dry the whole car in two passes||Better is to get two towels to deal with the drying because one is thin enough that it can’t deal with the excess of water|
|Soft enough to reduce the risk of scratches and durable enough to reuse it many times after washing it|
|Its waffle-weave pattern holds up the dirt and debris very well|
2. Runner up – Chemical Guys MIC1995 Gray Woolly Mammoth Microfiber Dryer Towel
This woolly mammoth from chemical guys is the best microfiber towel on my list except but because of its price I have to put it on the second number.
It is the same in dimension ( 36” x 25” ) as waffle weave from chemical guys but it is thicker and more absorbent than that.
It has well-sewed luxury silk edging. The woolly surface helps in removing any dirt left after the wash.

Are there any quality differences among different microfiber towels?
Mostly, No but there are some premium grade microfiber towels that possess the extra capacity to absorb water like they are thick, and double-layer microfiber towels e-g Terry Weave Drying Towel from Griot has the double layer or line of cloth
Is microfiber more absorbent than cotton?
Yes, Microfiber is made from a combination of two fibers polyester and polyamide. And it is among the list of top absorbent fabrics
Do microfiber towels cause scratches?
In most cases No, but if you pay too much attention ( like using a magnifying glass ) to search for scratches then there might be a chance that you might find some. But it also matters that in which condition is your microfiber towel present. Too much use and drying microfiber towels may cause them to damage and there is the probability that might cause scratches
Is the microfiber towel along with the detail spray enough?
It all depends upon your car’s clear coat condition. If it is in good condition then you can go with the detail spray and microfiber towel to give it a shine and fresh look. But it should be among the major wax sessions and you should not miss the major wax sessions
