Quality microfiber towels are the gold standard for washing/drying/buffing towels in the auto detailing industry. As their name suggests, they have ultra-small fibers that are said to be two times thinner than silk and eight times thinner than cotton. Most of them are made from polyester and nylon. Thanks to their ultra-small fibers as well as the way they’re woven together, microfiber drying towels are great at picking up or lifting dirt particles or wax away from car paint. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about dragging dirt over the surface of your car with these towels. Microfiber towels also do a great job of absorbing moisture from car paint, especially when they’re already a bit wet or damp. The denser they are, the more absorbent they are, so you would do well to invest in denser microfiber towels, even if these are a bit pricier.
Torque Detail has developed an innovative detailing spray called the Turbo Waterless Detailer, which you can use with your damp microfiber towels when drying off your car. This detailing spray provides a layer of lubrication between the towel and your car’s paint when you’re wiping off moisture, meaning that it helps to protect your car’s paint from swirls and scratches during the drying process. This detailing spray also provides a high-gloss, anti-static shine, while enriching any wax or sealant you may have applied on your car previously.
Simply spray the Turbo detailer onto the section of the car you’re working on and then use a damp microfiber towel to wipe off all water droplets. Depending on the size of the microfiber towels you have, you can fold them once or twice. Use one side to dry off a section of the car; when it gets saturated, turn to another side of the towel and continue. Start at the top and work your way down, making gentle strokes with the towel. You’ll probably need a few towels to dry off your car fully.
Thanks to the hydrophobic attributes of the detailing spray, your paint will repel water and cause it to roll off. Moreover, the product’s anti-static properties will prevent dirt from sticking onto your paint. Therefore, with this product, your paint will stay dry and shiny for longer.
