    Default Meguiars yelllow microfibre cloths changed?

    Just noticed this on a pack of these cloths I got recently....

    Cloths used to look like this.....



    Now they look like this...



    Anyone else noticed this?, or have I got some counterfeit cloths? lol They were bought from Halfords so they should be genuine ones.

    Wonder why they dropped the little yellow trimmed edge?, possibly causing scratching due to the material (can't think it would) or simply cost cutting?

    thats a possible and probable reason.

    I would also suggest cost as the second one has less work involved in its manufacture....

    I think the edging has been removed so they do not cause any scratching. I have many micro fibre cloths that I have bought from reputable companies and they don,t have any "fancy" edging, might be easier to manurfacture too.

    i bought a pack of 3 cloths yesterday and was the same as the second pic so not a dodgy batch, probably just to make sure of no scratching and save pennies

    I have 3 Water Magnets.... the first 2 I bought have a black trim round the edge... the latest one doesn't.

    Must be a cost cutting redesign..... which is quite fitting really... they're just dropping the refinements off them to save costs after they have been on sale for a while, just like Vx do with their cars!!!!
