How do Microfiber Towels Affect The Appearance Of My Vehicle?
Microfiber towels are specialized cleaning and detailing towels designed for use in the automotive industry. They are known for their high absorbency, softness, and ability to clean without leaving streaks or scratches on vehicle surfaces. These towels come in various sizes, types, and GSM ratings (Grams per Square Meter), each with specific applications in automotive care and detailing. Here are some common types of automotive microfiber towels available at Benami Autocare:
Drying Towels: These towels are designed for drying a vehicle’s exterior after washing. They typically have a high GSM rating (e.g., 300 to 800 GSM) to maximize water absorption and minimize the risk of water spots.
Waffle Weave Towels: These towels have a textured waffle pattern that increases surface area and improves water absorption. They are often used for drying and detailing.
Buffing and Polishing Towels: These towels are used for applying and buffing off wax, polish, or sealants on a vehicle’s paint surface. They are usually soft and lint-free to prevent scratching and leave a high-gloss finish.
Glass Cleaning Towels: These are designed specifically for cleaning glass surfaces, such as windows and mirrors. They are often lint-free and streak-free to ensure clear and spotless results.
What is the difference between 300 and 400 GSM?
- Absorbency: Towels with a 300 GSM rating are moderately absorbent. They can handle light to medium moisture levels and are suitable for tasks like wiping down surfaces in the kitchen, cleaning mirrors, or quick car drying.
- Versatility: These towels are versatile and can be used for a variety of cleaning tasks, both wet and dry.
- Durability: Microfiber towels with a 300 GSM rating are typically durable and can withstand multiple washes. They are often used in households and car detailing.
- Cost-Effective: They are often more cost-effective than higher GSM towels, making them a good choice for everyday cleaning needs.
- Lint-Free: Like most microfiber towels, those with a 300 GSM rating are lint-free, which means they won’t leave lint or streaks behind when used for cleaning.
Microfiber Towels with 400 GSM:
- Absorbency: Towels with a 400 GSM rating are more absorbent compared to 300 GSM towels. They can handle heavier moisture levels and are suitable for tasks that require more thorough drying, such as drying a car’s exterior after washing.
- Versatility: They are versatile and can be used for a wide range of cleaning tasks, from household cleaning to automotive detailing.
- Durability: Microfiber towels with a 400 GSM rating are also durable and can withstand frequent use and washing.
- Softness: These towels are soft and gentle on surfaces, making them suitable for delicate tasks like cleaning glass or polishing surfaces without scratching.
- Cost: While they offer increased absorbency and softness, they may be slightly more expensive than 300 GSM towels.
