Professional Grade Premium Microfiber Towel With Silk Edges, Gold 16" X 16"
About This Towel
Microfiber is the industry-standard cloth for touching and wiping cars because it is super-soft, super-absorbent, and will not scratch paint when used properly. Premium Microfiber Towels are made with a select 70/30 blend of microfiber for exceptional softness and durability, and a luxurious silk-banded edge to further reduce the chances of scratching sensitive paintwork. Every towel features one short nap side, and one high nap side. Use the high pile to wipe away dust and debris and buff away detail sprays for a streak-free shine, and the low pile side to remove cured paste waxes and sealants. When only the best towels will do for exquisite detailing work, choose the Chemical Guys Premium Microfiber Towel.
Versatile Scratchless Detailing Towel
The two plush pile heights makes short work of liquids and solids alike. Use the high pile side to soak up wash water, detail sprays, and waterless wash solutions. Buff away dried wax, sealant, and polish with the short pile side without fear of scratching the surface. Gently pick up heavy dirt in one direction in the high pile side, and clean windows and glass with the short pile. The premium silk-banded edge further reduces the chance of scratching when buffing and drying along the edge of the towel. The soft, fluffy fabric absorbs and traps abrasive debris and dirt before they can cause permanent damage to paint or sensitive plastic.
Luxurious Silk Edging
The Premium Microfiber Towel uses ultra-soft microfiber and exclusive silk-banded edges to help prevent any swirls or scratches on sensitive paintwork and automotive surfaces. Every Chemical Guys Premium Microfiber Towel features an ultra-soft silk edge. While cheap microfiber towels have hard nylon edges that scratch paint, Chemical Guys Premium Microfiber Towels use soft silk edges to protect paint from damage with 100% of the towel’s surface. Detailers and weekend warriors routinely spend countless hours of meticulous work to achieve the perfect finish, only to have it ruined by the final wipe of their cheap bulk-bought towel.

I run a small auto detailing shop and without microfiber towels, we literally cannot operate so we're always on the lookout for the best ones we can find, and for the best price. I'm pretty sure we found that with these towels. The "nap" of the towel is long and soft which is very important for 90% of our uses, the size is perfect, the price is perfect--in fact there's only one downside, and I'll address it below: the tag.
*** DURABILITY ***
I've been using Chemical Guys products for quite some time now and although I have some problems with their customer support at times, their products are really good and their towels and applicator pads are very durable. These towels are no exception. I have washed the same towel, for testing purposes, over 50 times by using it for something on almost every car we got in the shop. It has held up nicely. While you can tell it's not used and it's "nap" is getting kind of worn, it's still usable. Now it gets tossed into the "scrap pile."
How do I keep track of when I bought a particular towel? I don't, and that's exactly why it's so important to know the durability of the towel before I go and buy them in bulk. We must have over 500 towels in the shop and we throw away at least 10 per day. That's not too bad, in my opinion.
*** QUALITY ***
My mom once told me, "you can always tell the quality of the garment by the quality of the stitching." Well, this isn't really a garment unless you plan on wearing it as a loin cloth, but it is stitched fabric nonetheless. That said, the stitching is very nicely done; they could have cheaped out and used a different stitching pattern but had they done so, the towels would be falling apart within 10 washes. Not the case here.
The second thing I look for is the "nap." For some applications, like cleaning engine bays and so forth, the nap is unimportant... for other things, like wiping off sealants and other chemicals, the nap is everything! A nice, short, more aggressive nap is best for wiping off other product like glazes, waxes, and so forth. For the most part though, I like a medium length, dense and thick, durable nap that will withstand multiple washes. These do just that.
*** CARE AND CLEANING ***
To be honest, I really haven't found "THE" cleaning detergent that works best on my microfiber towels. I've been using the Chemical Guys Microfiber Detergent which supposedly removes waxes and other chemicals from the towels, keeps them fluffed up nicely, and removes stains. I can assure you, it does NOT remove stains and the jury's still out on how well it's removing waxes and other chemicals. I get pretty obsessive with towels and I do not want to make a chemical soup in my washing machine because the detergent is simply mixing everything together and depositing it in all the towels. I've had towels coming our smelling like cherry from one product, Sonax wheel cleaner, and 50/50 type wax... not good, especially when that color towel is only used for a specific purpose.
Color coding helps but sometimes you need to do a load of towels and not all of them are going to be black engine bay towels (which I use a small amount of degreaser with in the wash and it works GREAT!) Enough about cleaning though... if I ever find the "best" cleaner, I'll update the review and let you know. If you find one, let us all know in the comments section!
*SIDE BAR*: Do NOT wash your window cleaning microfiber towels with ANY of your other wax/chemical towels. Do it and you'll see what I mean... you'll have streaks... not significant ones, but they'll be there and the customer will not be happy, and neither will you.
*** PRICE ***
The cost of these microfiber towels is amazing. To get a dozen towels of this quality for around $20 is a steal. Every penny counts when you're detailing and spending a buck or two on a towel really helps keep costs down. For the home user, a 12 pack of these and maybe a 12 pack of the black towels for wheels and engine bays should be more than enough. Price wise, these towels get a 10/10!
*** DOWNSIDES ***
Well, there's really only one, and that's the completely unnecessary fabric tag stitched into the side of the towel. Chemical Guys recommends simply pulling it off, however, doing so often tears the stitching and we all remember what mom said about the stitching! :-) You could cut them off but then a small bit of the tag still remains and could potentially scratch the vehicle. The ridiculous thing is, almost every towel they make simply says "Super Towel - Made in China." Okay Chemical Guys, we get it; it's a super towel made in China, now can you take the annoying tags off the towels please?
*** CONCLUSION ***
That's about all I've got for now on these towels. If I find out anything new, I'll update the review, and if Chemical Guys removes the annoying tags from the towels, we'll throw a party! (I mean seriously, can't you just put a little removable sticker on the towel telling us it's a "Super Towel - Made In China" so we can take it off with ease and without damaging the towel? Please!
I put the two year old towels next to new towels to compare. The new towels have a less dense pile, not as plush, and fibers are about 1/4 shorter than the ones I bought two years ago. The gap in the pile is larger and it sheds like crazy.
I wish I bought more of the old ones.
That advice was spot on. I let these sit on my "to do" shelf for a few weeks, but the other day I had to use the spare car. The spare car with the DIRTY windows. I cleaned them with window cleaner and new cotton glass cloth. Streaky mess. In a fit of frustration I ripped open one of the three packages of towels that come with this offer, and repeated the exact same two step - spray cleaner on cloth, wipe window with cloth, dry window with cloth.
Holy moly. No more streaks. Even after a few days and driving at night.
