Kirkland mf's

Anyone use these, assume you do.

Pretty decent?. I need some more and spotted them at £23 for 36. Need them for applying spray sealents, removing polish etc.

I use them myself and see Pro's using them so they must be safe.

Just tear or cut off the label before use.

P.S. I usually discard after 4 or 5 washes as they will eventually become less soft.

Yeah i use them and they are okay, one side is short pile and the other is longer. I tend to use mine for the less noticeable jobs, interior and the likes but if they get contaminated in anyway, then i bin them off.

I use a lot of them and they're ok for the price.

But mainly we order 1000 mixed colours from a trade supplier which are good for maybe 10 uses.
Kirkland are decent for interiors, engine bays and plastics etc

If their the same yellow ones in the US i’m not a fan of the edges. They are sewn. Wouldn’t use because the can cause slight marring.

I used them for engines, door jams and interiors

I like the Kirkland yellow MF's they are pretty good.

Lose a bit of softness after a few washes maybe, but for the money they are really good.

I've used them to buff polishes and waxes off the Type R and Porsche in the past - no problems.

Think when me and @Tricky Red got them a few years ago they were something like £16 for 36
(Still a bargain at £23 though)

They seem to have gone up slightly, from memory I paid £15 for 36.
Think they've changed from 70/30 to 80/20, but for the price they're excellent value

Other than the obvious (Costco), where do you guys buy yours from? I have a costco card but the my nearest one is over 50 miles away....and my membership has expired cant justify it just for some MF cloths. Although the chicken is damn good from there...
