Top critical review
Way too SKIMPY-Thin - keep looking.
May 6, 2016
Dismiss all these 5 star reviews - you're reading text from someone who has tried tons of them and is also a Meguiar's 'fan-boy' - even took one of their detailing classes a while back & almost exclusively use Meguiar's product. My guess is that all these glowing reviews are half from users that haven't compared or if they have compared they did so with other cheap towels & the other half from users that hadn't experienced a 'waffle weave - microfiber' drying towel before.
Fact is that this towel is skimpy-thin compared to what's available and should be about 6" wider in both directions. Maybe it's ok if you own a Mini Cooper but even then I'm disappointed in Meguiar's quality on this one.
There are far better, not to mention larger, microfiber towels out there for drying and since drying towels last a long time they are worth the extra price for quality & size. I'm not saying a drying towel has to be 'plush' to do a better job - I'm saying that my two existing / remaining towels that survived the cut (sorry tore tags off long ago) work way better. One's white & twice as thick as the Megiuar's & the other is blue with deeper pockets and also thicker - maybe ChemGuys not sure. Whatever - forget the number of positive reviews they've just never used a proper drying towel before, so do yourself a long term favor and keep looking.
*edit - I found the name of the white waffle weave (thicker, denser, with deeper pockets) microfiber towel in photo - it's the Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel Waffle 19 x 39. It really is a cut above the other waffle towels designed for cars, quality weave and they don't fray. The size of 19 x 39 is ideal, it holds far more water (not just because of size), and dries quickly. (Tip - try to squeegee windows first with water blade to remove excess water. Though 'water blades' are technically not the greatest idea for use on clearcoat everyone uses them anyways - the issue being if you missed cleaning a spot on your car and you later use a water blade to evacuate water the silicone blade could burnish the dirty area into paint). Aquis makes other towels and sizes so be careful. The one I have found to work is 19 x 39 and has a "square" label (not rectangular) that you will need to cut the threads off of to remove. Can't vouch for thickness of their other sizes. These are microfiber 'Hair Drying' towels, so see if your woman has one already, just don't tell her what you're about to experiment with it for if you want to live.
