    they will be ok for general cleaning but they may scratch your car. When i say scratch i mean ultra fine scratches that you probably wont even notice but a trainspotting detailer may.

    They recommend buying good quality cloths only and leave the cheap ones for things like door shuts, alloys, bottoms of doors etc

    I got some cheap ones from tescos, and use them on the paint fine. however, I always make sure that there is a product on the cloth for lubrication, quick detailer or spray wax. when taking off polish, when you want the cloth to be dry, I use a decent one.

    if you get them, try using them on a brand new cd..for copying etc...if it scratches that then dont use on your paintwork...it will amaze you that they can actually scratch a cd..
