Question Amazon Basics Microfibres

Hi Guys,

The Amazon Basics Microfibres here;

https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasic.../dp/B009FUF6DM

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.

Not quite On topic but: I don't know about the quality of the towels but, at the risk of seeming right on, and not a personal dig, please reflect further before giving those tax-avoiding any business.

Decent businesses (including sponsors of this site) do their bit, treat staff well and, as a consequence, struggle to compete with them. Should we not be voting with our wallets?

Forgive me, rant over!

Great value at 3 for a £ if you have a store local to you.

Peter,

Couldn't agree more about supporting site sponsors - I normally buy from Elite Car Care when it comes to detailing.

Having said that, I was on Amazon having a browse and 48 microfibre cleaning cloths for £15.43, I mean, that's quite a price, there's no two ways about it.

I can't really comment too much on the company or its tax procedures or its staff, I do use them from time to time, can't say I've ever experienced anything too bad in the way they've dealt with me - but I take your point on board and thanks.

Totally understood and cool :-)

Has anyone used the Amazon ones on interior leather/plastics/etc - do you think they will be fine?

Also is there anything anyone wouldn't use them on in the interior of their car?

Thanks

I use the Kirkland MF from costco. Around £15 for a pack of 36 and they look a bit more plush than those amazon ones.

Detailing is about quality, for me in that respect a few better performing towels are more appropriate I do buy bulk, towards that 300+gsm quality.

These will have to be washed continuously plus able to support and apply any given product to the interior, plus absorb any residue to leave a clean protected result.

Buy one quality towel first see how it performs then base your bulk purchase on that, as an interim, Home Bargains do a blue or pink for 60p that meet the above criteria. I buy the bulk grey towels from AutoSmart....he gave us one to try on that basis we bought more.

Quality exterior microfiber are even more important, plus a suitable drying one if required.

We all here want to save some money, we are here to help.

Good luck, John Tht.

Hi,

Completely agree on the quality arguement - will go back to my main people (Elite) and pay their prices I think.

Having said that I did order a few of these (just the 6 pack to test) so was wondering in general would they be ok for the interior?

I was of the understanding that lower quality microfibre cloths like these were perfectly ok for the interior for wiping down, etc?

Thanks !

I only use cheap (Action stores) microfibres in the kitchen and engine bays. The ones under the bonnet i throw away after using. The Amazon ones look a bit thin and too soft maybe (90/10 polyester/polyamide), but you can try them for the interior, or maybe the windows. When you don't like them just give them another purpose.
