Multi Purpose Microfibres can be used for most jobs around your car, be it exterior polish application and buffing or interior cleaning. Any detailer is to have an extensive range of microfibres at their disposal to complete all areas of detailing a car. The one they will use the most will be a standard multipurpose detailing microfibre.
Normally around 40cm square and 20-30% polyamide these cloths can be used to apply polish to your car's paintwork, removing residue, glass cleaning, interior cleaning, engine bay cleaning, even the removal of sealants applied to the paintwork.
Multipacks can be helpful as the microfibres being very absorbent will end up smearing product everywhere if they are “full”. Swap it out for a fresh cloth to complete the job at hand, after use a microfibre wash to effectively remove any product residues without damaging the microfibre.
What are the different weaves of microfibre
Standard, waffle, loop, knot, twisted, pearl and scale (zero pile) are the most common found in detailing cloths.
