    Default beware of cheap micro cloths

    I gave my car a wash today, thought I would dry the wheels with a cheap micro fibre cloth I noticed a mark on the side of the bumper, the sun highlighted it a treat,so I gave it a rub with the cheap micro fibre cloth[I bought it with the intention of useing it on the glass], with the sun highlighting it still you could see millions of small swirls from the cloth. I got my magiures deep crystal paint cleaner then deep crystal polish followed by maguires cleaner wax finishing off with NXT Tech wax. that prosses removed all the swirl marks, I will repeat al of that procedure plus maguires#21 sealent and then finaly PS21S wax all over the car,when the weather allows me. But the moral of this thread is, be very carefull of the cheaper micro cloths, I can recomend the more expensive micro cloths that are made for car polishing, they do not mark the paint finish at all ,the cheap cloth dried the wheels very well though,so they do have their use, I have not tried them on the glass yet but will do so and post my results. It is strange how you can get hooked on this detailing though,
