Yeah they're 90/10 mix apparently.

Ordered some nicer ones from Elite.

But the Amazon ones should be ok for plastic/vinyl/leather in the interior right?

Bought theses recently when they were on offer at £24. Happy with the quality for a cheap towel.

Thats quite a good price as well ! I've got with Elite Car Care as I know where I stand with them.

These AmazonBasics ones though, am I right in thinking even if they are "low quality" that they will still be fine for interior materials such as;

-Plastics
-Vinyl
-Leather
-Glass

Thanks in advance.

Should be fine on those surfaces, but I'd imagine you'll get some linting on glass.

Hey man, thats pretty cool.

When you say should be fine? Is there any chance they will damage the interior materials with just water and wiping off Dr Leather wipes ?

There was a microfibre guide but the link didn't work so I don't know the ins and outs of the whole thing.

Long story short low quality microfibres like the Amazon ones I bought won't damage interiors will they?

In 6/12/24/48 whatever size packs;

Are they ok for basically anything inside the car interior wise and won't harm/damage it, etc ?

Thanks in advance.
I have bought them, I use them everywhere except paintwork.

Ah ok thats pretty cool !

I am just a bit worried now about the "work quality" element of the towels.

But as long as they won't do any damage at all to the interior then I'll use the 6 I've got and move onto slightly higher quality stuff afterwards.

Its mainly just leather, fake leather, vinyl and plastic - I'll skip the glass.

Thanks

I bought 48 of these when they were just over £8.

They are not great quality and a bit small. However at 17p per cloth they are great for throw away dirty jobs like engine bays and wheels.

So you're saying you wouldn't use them on the interior bits I've listed above?

Thanks

They won't do any harm to general interior. I would not however use them on say polished "piano black" interior trim.
