There are a few different waffle weave towels available and they're all great drying towels. What makes this GuruFiber waffle weave drying towel different is that it's noticeably softer, lighter and easier to use. The lighter weight microfiber fabric used in the GuruFiber waffle weave drying towel absorbs water fast... very fast! One of the biggest complaints with most waffle weave drying towels is that they are difficult to wring out, and when you wring them out they stop drying streak-free. This is not an issue with the GuruFiber waffle weave drying towel. This towel is easy to wring out and continues to work absolutely streak-free, even when damp. The GuruFiber Waffle Weave is a soft, Ultra Premium plush waffle weave towel banded with a strip of silky soft satin sewn edges to insure the softest SCRATCH FREE TOWEL! The towel can absorb 10 times its own weight in water, making it 35% more absorbent and more plush then any retail waffle weave towels. Its unique magnetic charge attracts lint and dirt trapping it in the weave so it will not scratch any surface. The GuruFiber Waffle Weave is a generous 25 by 36 inches. It has a tufted, high pile loop that's woven from an 80/20 blend of polyester and polyamide microfiber. The ultra soft waffle pattern makes this towel 100% scratch-free on even the most delicate car finishes, including black and clear coats. The edging is bound in Microfiber silk to further prevent scratching and swirl marks. SILK BANDED MICROFIBER TOWELS are designed with the latest innovations and finest newest generation of microfiber fabric. Constructed with a dual pile weave, one side has long fibers and the other short fibers. The long fiber side works great in quick detail and waterless car wash applications where dirt needs to be carried away from the paint surface. The short fiber side is great for buffing away polish and wax residue, and cleaning windows.
