Ok, I've Googled the the nads off this one but I'm still none the wiser as to the best ones and expected price to pay. I know about the $100,000 cheap machines in Korea and China compared to the Gucci $1,000,000 machines. I know that a 70/30 blend of polyester/polymide is better at water absorbing than an 80/20 blend.
What I want to know is what Brand, what type and expected price and where to shop so I ain't p!ssing my hard earneds up against the wall.
.....and your welcome in advance:lol::lol:

Hey Stewie, I purchased a Mequiars MicroWipe Superglide Microfibre chamios
http://www.meguiars.com.au/productdetail_2006.php?seq=19&category=DETAILING ACCESSORIES&subcat=Wash and Dry&subsubcat=&show=4
on the weekend and I think it was around $20. It seemed to do the job quite well. The other one I was considering was the Gold Class Supreme Shine microfibre cloth
http://www.meguiars.com.au/productdetail_2006.php?seq=22&category=DETAILING ACCESSORIES&subcat=Applicators and Cloths&subsubcat=&show=4
which was also around the $20 mark.

If I didn't already have Meguiars products left over from previous cars I probably would have gone with Bowdens Own. I know why you are confused though, there are so many different products out there and picking the right one for you is a tough choice. Hope you find what you're looking for.

Dont know the brand name buddy but I got them from the Kmart, yellow in colour and double sided,
exterior one side and interior the other,
exterior one side and glass the other.
and there are other combinations as well.

Very soft should suit your bunny hands... ha ha.

Thanks to one and all for your responses. It has definitely narrowed the field somewhat. I do like the idea of the really soft ones for my really soft bunny hands too....but I've got other plans for those :D

Stewie I've used almost every mguires product including the chamois mentioned above and can say it is a good unit when used properly !
I'm going to suggest you a soft wash shampoo I've come across in the last couple weeks and have been amazed with the results . It's the bowdens own as sniper suggested
http://www.bowdensown.com.au/premium-car-care . It's very soft on polishes and waxes so you don't go stripping wax you just applied. Gives a great finish and can be bought from autobahn for around 15 -20

I use an autoglym silicone blade to remove 98% of water arfter rinceing,works a treat then pick up what's left with a fair dinkum shammy! Got a cloth from Dan murphys that they recommend for wine glasses,and it's white stewie..lol for the windows and that does the job for them!

Loving the feed back....doesn't make it any easier though.....

Stewie, I'll take the brunette, so I guess that leaves you with the blonde :D... Hope that helps somewhat :)

Let us know which way you decide to go, with the microfibre cloths that is ;) and let us know how you go.

$4 from super cheap. Been using them for a while and never had any issues. Apart from the name on the tag, I cant really see them being to different from those triple the price.

Gotta disagree with ya timmy975. I've tried plenty of different microfibre cloths, you can do much better than the cheapies from the likes of supercheap. A lot of cloths can actually add tiny scratches to your paintwork which show noticeably when you car is viewed in direct sun, which will be much more noticeable on dark coloured paint.

Stewie to answer you original question you don't need to spend a fortune to get some nice plush cloths I'd recommend something like these: http://www.chemguys.com.au/Microfiber_towel_p/mic_333_6.htm

I'll take your advise dan08R8, the cheapies are now in the rag pile.
