So these are the best I have used good old Costco brand!!! I picked these up today before going to a job because I was running low on clean ones! 36 pack for 14.99
Have you tested them side by side against the ECloth? Just curious.
I have not but they are big and hold a lot of water. And doesn’t leave any lint what so ever. How much are the ones your talking about?
I L O V E these towels. I use them for everything except on the glass. Sills,
tracks, frames. screens…actually I do use them sometimes on glass but only for getting off silicone smudges…
Oh, damn I lied…What I meant was I don’t use them for detailing windows, I use scrim for that. I also use them with Spray Away on some high windows, stained glass, mirrors and they are great for wetting up small cut-ups cause I can control the amount of water really well.
I do use microfiber to sop water, but find they can leave micro-lint on some glass, as some glass surfaces are like sand paper. That’s why I carry and use the flour sack Wal-Mart towels at final detail. I’m really trying to decide if I even like micro fiber. Drop it? Forget about it. Recently bought 10 lbs. of Hucks. Even they can leave lint. The research continues. Oh, and I pretty much despise those “glass microfiber” towels. They are a joke, they seem to stick to glass. Micro fiber is good to wipe out tracks.
- Ninja micro for detailing
- Xero fishscale for detailing
- Unger 4000 HD for abrasive
Best 3 in the biz.
Honorable mention: Quickie Heavy Duty (Home Depot) for abrasive
Xero fish scale towel hands down. I love mine. Glad I bought a three pack before they went out of stock.
The ecloth is about eight bux. Very thin. I use it for detailing around stickers.
Jordie, do you like the ninja better than the regular Unger micros?
Also, as far as your list, have you tested scrims? Where would you rank them?
Yes, Ninjas are better than the Standard Ungers.
The Ninjas soak up quickly, so they need to be used as only detail, no sills whatsoever. But they dry quickly too. 70/30 blend, herringbone mesh.
Here are my tops for detailing
and tops for scrubbing/detailing
Scrim - Yes, I tried them a while back but need to retry. They were pretty good but same as Ninjas, soak quickly, dry quickly.
Btw, good to see you back here a little. Doing well in your business?
Thanks, Jordie. Yeah, things are going well. Still a lot of progress to make, but I finally landed some commercial jobs including three schools! Next week I’m meeting with the Regional Manager of a gas station chain. If I could land that one, it’d be a great step forward in reaching my storefront goals. Can’t wait to see how it goes.
Thanks for the input on the towels. I never bothered with the ninja line because i didn’t think it differed from the regular ones except for the scrubby corner. Now I’ll definitely try it. And I’m really intrigued by these fish scale towels. Never heard of them before. I’m a big believer in the scrim, but I feel it’s still not perfect as you often have to make several passes for the edges to be dry and not leave a haze. My goal is one quick swipe the way you always see people do on youtube videos.
I have found something that helps me. I have watched others dry the edges, and I don’t think they do it like me. It appears they put the towel over the finger tip and wipe from one edge to the other, using only the pad of the finger tip.
I roll my finger as I go. Start at the tip. rolling to the second knuckle. On very large panes, I get half way and have to stop, to keep a dry edge on the towel.
Don’t know if that will help you, but thought I’d offer it up if you hadn’t thought of that before.
