What to look for when purchasing a Chamois or Microfibre Drying Towel
This decision can be based purely based on personal preference and whether you are looking to replace what you already have or buy your first one. Each do the job of removing water effectively yet each has their pros and cons that may sway your decision.
Drying towels - A relatively recent development in car cleaning, a microfibre drying towel is designed with super thick microfibre to literally suck the water off the surface of your vehicle. Requiring minimum movement and maximises absorbency, the soft material minimizes scratches and swirl marks. Depending on size a drying towel can be quite unwieldy to handle when full of water so always look for a towel that is compact enough to easily maneuver. A down side of these towels are that they are usually not housed in a plastic waterproof container enabling you to stow in the boot or glovebox when wet. This is the upside of a synthetic chamois as these enable you to remove dirt or the dreaded bird droppings when out and about to limit damage to your sensitive paint.
Traditional chamois - made from natural leather or a synthetic composite, a chamois relies on the residual water from your wash to lubricate as you drag it across the surface of your vehicle. The less water the more likelihood of swirls marks as you dry. Due to them also being relatively thin they can become infused with dirt therefore will require rising in clean water to remove dirt particles. Chamois are also available in a range of different sizes which allows for personal preference on which size you prefer.
Still undecided on what drying towel or chamois would suit best?
As a certain girl in a certain advert said, "why not have both?". With the relatively cheap cost and the definite benefits of either product you can afford to buy one of each and utilise them where appropriate. Buy yourself a small synthetic chamois to store in your glovebox or boot to quickly wipe away road grime or bird droppings in a flash when out on the road. Then for a more comprehensive clean when giving a proper car wash you can switch to a large microfibre drying towel to handle that task. Using the microfibre towel at home enables you to easily hang out to dry when finished leaving a clean dry towel for next time.
