Micro Fiber Detail Cloths
choice of the professional

Micro fiber detail cloths are relatively new to the scene of auto detailing. With advances in textile and chemical engineering, we as consumers continually benefit; such is the case with micro fiber towels. Just like every area of life, they are not all crated equal. I have 3 levels of micro fiber detail cloths, each suited for specific jobs of car detailing. The Griot's Garage micro fibers are perfect for wax removal at the highest level.

Darren's Remarks

Some habits are hard to die; such was the case for me when it came to using baby diapers for use on the most pristine of paints. After making the switch years ago, it is hard to imagine detailing life without them. These amazing engineered wonders are so versatile and can be used for so many things. Just like the synthetic chamois I recommend, I never run out od useful purposes for these micro fibers.

Darren's Tips

The softness and absorbency of these amazing little wonders is second to none! Perfect for removing polishes and waxes alike in the most critical and sensitive of situations with regards to your paint. When I get new micro fiber detail cloths, I reserve these for the most pristine of paint work. As the cloths get used and become worn, I demote them down the scale of chores based on task. I use these towels until the very end, and continue to serve functions at every step of the quality scale.

Because they are virtually lint free, lint is virtually non-existent at the very end of their life. It is at this point I use them for detailing the interiors on dark cars where lint is problematic with traditional cleaning rags. Read my list of useful solutions that micro fiber detail cloths provide:

  • Use for pristine paint work when brand new.
  • As they wear down, use for dirtier jobs of detailing.
  • After worn down considerably, use for shampooing of dark interiors of leather and vinyl.
  • Many detailers use as window cleaning towels.
  • I also prefer to use micro fiber for applying wax.

Darren's Tips of Care

The one drawback of micro fiber detail cloths are their ability to grab onto, and hold foreign material or debris. Extreme care should be taken to prevent your cloths from being contaminated with random debris and dirt that can damage paint. Always wash and dry these towels separate from anything else. They will pick up and hold any other material from other fabrics if washed and dried together. They do make specialized detergents for micro fiber, but traditional detergents do just fine. Never add fabric softener or dryer sheets when cleaning or drying.
