Basics Buffing and Polishing Cloth - short pile microfibre buffing cloth 40x40cm 380gsm
A versatile and economical ‘general purpose’ microfibre, with pile that's soft, short and ideal for removing stubborn residues. Perfect, in fact, for buffing and polishing, inside or outside the car.
This 40x40cm sized tag-less cloth comes in 380gsm microfibre with gentle cotton edging, but if you need to go softer still, try the Basics Extra-soft Buffing Cloth.
Finally, please don't confuse these with other 'economical' yellow cloths on the market - these are very different from the microfibres you get in bales down at the Cash and Carry. They're just a similar colour.
Care of buffing cloths. All our microfibres are fully machine washable. Wash them with a non-bio liquid at 30 degrees for light soiling or 40 degrees for heavier contamination - or even better, grab some of our Dodo Juice Furry Liquid, which is made for the job. Powders may not dissolve and get caught in the fibres, so liquids are better... and bio detergents may eat the stitching over time. Avoid the use of fabric conditioners or softeners at all costs as these can make microfibre cloths water repellent. If this happens, dry clean the cloth with your tuxedo and duvet next time you are in town, or soak it in a strong APC solution overnight (our Total Wipe Out concentrate is ideal for this). Finally, fluffiness can be restored by tumble drying on a low heat. High heat will damage the fibres. Some clumping/entangling of fibres is natural as the microfibre becomes older - consign old microfibres that are past their best to secondary duties like wheel cleaning.
