Thanks to our new sponsor of this forum, I thought I'd share with you their latest and greatest deal. :) You guys are going to love this. If you are familiar with Microfiber towels then you will really enjoy. If not, well, get ready for an education.

Microfiber is the softest material you can use on your car. Ever see your car under those really powerful lights at a gas station? Ever notice the hairline scratches all over the hood? They sort of look like circles all over your car. Those are the dreaded swirl marks. The most common way that people get swirls in their cars is simply by using towels that are too abrasive to dry their cars or buff off polishes. I mean, what good is it to spend hours polishing your car if you are only going to put the swirls right back on them by buffing off the polish?? Microfiber towels are the answer to that question. I can't even begin to explain why they are so soft, but they are. Trust me.

The other way that people put those swirls in their car is by drying it with something that is too abrasive. How many of you use a bath towel to dry your cars? I used to. I was held in a prison camp for 8 years as punishment for my crimes in detailing because of that.
Not really, but I should have been. That is the worst thing you can use. You might as well use a piece of canvas. A lot of people use chamois to dry. Those are ok, but the chamois usually don't hold water very well and they streak all over the place. A really great invention was The Absorber. Now that is a drying tool of the Gods!! All hail to the mighty Absorber!! I used to swear by that thing before I discovered Microfiber drying towels. If you are currently using the Absorber then you probably won't believe me when I tell you that there is a better way to dry your car.

CHECK THIS OUT!! That is 4 Star's latest deal on their site and Team Integra is the first to be told about it. They have decided to sell their Microfiber towels at the lowest price they possibly can. Believe me, those are amazing deals. If you would like a really good comparison then check out THIS SITE They are selling practicly the same towels at twice the price. Fore example... [url="http://www.premiumautocare.com/16purwafweav.htmlTHIS%20TOWEL/a> is the exact same thing as

That sounded like one of those guys at car shows stands that try to sell you products.

Anyways, I have never used microfiber towels but I have been meaning to buy some

What's great are microfiber shirts! I have one that I wrecked my first car in... and even though it flipped at over 100mph... I was still pretty comfortable after crawling out of the car

Hey, if posting the link and saying "buy this" would have worked then I would have done that instead.
I just wanted to educate anyone that didn't know what microfiber was. Its pretty cool stuff if you've never used it. Plus it keeps your car from getting all swirled. I detail cars for a living. I'd love for you all to swirl your cars up because then I can charge you $200 bucks to buff them out. lol I'm just trying to save all the Integras I can find from the dreaded swirl marks. They are a pain to take out completely.

How long do they typically last?

Do they last at least as long as regular towels/rags?

Shadowhunter, The question is.. "What do you get out of all of this?"


I don't know if Jngr gets anything, but even if he does it doesn't bother me at all. T-I is getting great deals on excellent products, no scams, and great service.

All of the group buys have been on items I have spent full cost for, and it was worth every penny even when I was paying more!

I highly recommend you pick up some microfibers if you don't have any :)

I don't get anything out of this. I don't work for 4 Star. They aren't kicking me back any free towels or anything. Hey, I got them to get on board with Team Integra for 2 reasons. one is so that Team Integra can get some support for the forums. The other is so that you guys can have access to some sweet detailing supplies. If it sounds like an informercial then I'm sorry. I'm in the industry and know what a good deal that is. Normally towels of this quality are twice as much. Its nothing for detailers to drop five bucks on a towel. I'm just trying to help you guys out. I guess I'll just let 4 Star do their own advertising from now on if it bugs people.

Naw, yours & Styletegs info is always well looked upon since you are the only pro-detailers here.
Oh except for that new chick - if she's still here.

Now back to my original question, let's cut down to the shiznit, let's schmoove the greasedown on this mofo, lay the cheese on this joint: how long do you estimate these microfibre towels typically last - let's say for a typical weekly anal teg washer.

Would you say they last about as long as regular cotton terry cloth towels?

Depending on how often you use them and how well you take care of them. Like I said before, I've got some that are more than a year old. You can wash these pretty easily. I wash mine once every other week at least. It takes me awhile to go through all mine. ;) I've got a laundry basket in my garage. lol They will last you forever basicly. At least as long as your cotton ones. Actually, I've got terry cloth towels that I threw out a long time ago that I bought at the same time as my microfiber towels. Just don't be using them to clean your engine or something and they'll last you forever. A very very wise investment.

They are still working on the Canada shipping thing. Fear not, though. This isn't a temporary type sale. These are going to be the prices they are going to sell them for. I'll definatly look into the Canada thing again for y'all and let you know what is up with that. I agree that its important.

As far as the difference between the two towels, I have some pictures that will give you a good idea. Basicly I would suggest getting the Waffel Weave if you want to dry the car the fastest. It holds more water. They are both awesome towels, but I use the waffel weave towel more often than the other one. I'll find the pics and post em. :)
