    Default Bargain microfibre cloths/towels....

    Went to a Lidls supermarket today and saw that they are selling microfibre cloths.
    So I bought a box of smaller ones (3 in a box),
    and a box of large ones (2 in a box).
    The larger ones are marketed as floor cloths.
    They measure 50x55cm and are nice and thick and seem very good quality.
    They feel the same as the megs cloths I have and polished the car up a treat.
    The difference is the lidls cloths are £1.99 per box!!
    I will be buying some more tomorow!

    Yeah, I've bought the pound shop jobs before, but the ones I have bought were always, well, a bit pound shop!!
    The ones I got today from Lidls are really good quality, like the Megs cloths etc.
    I would like to say however I do NOT work for Lidls, neither am I on commision!

    Just to make sure they are safe you could try the "CD" test i.e. get a music CD and lightly rub the MF over the surface if it scratches the CD then it will scratch your paintwork.

    On the Costco ones........they are good BUT when we did the flat red Cosworth we found that they marked the paint so changed to teh Megs Supreme MF which didn't........the Megs supremem MF's are available at Halfords under their 3 for the price of 2 offer so it's £30 for 3 packs of 3 which = £3.20 or so each best value ever, even on ebay they're double that price
