I just received a couple of sham-wows (towels) as a gift. Has anyone tried these on their Bullitt? Do they scratch? It seems a little abrasive to the touch. I have had good luck with the micro-fiber towels...just wondering. I am totally anal when it comes to those dang swirl marks.

I thought about those but I'd be afraid they might strip the wax off. Test 'em and let us know if you note the wax being stripped off.

I've been waiting to hear about those too....I have been using "the Absorber" for years and pleased. As with anything we dry our cars with you have to clean/rinse/wash it after every use....to rid it of the microscopic sand pieces.

Has anyone used a Sham-Wow on a car?

I use those blue paper towel things that you get from the machine at the car wash. They're $0.75 and work great!

What are they made of?
Stuff like that sold on TV is suspect. Could be great though
I make it household policy to buy NOTHING that the irritating Billy Mays sells, PERIOD. He is even way way way more irritating than I am.:wink:

Now that I think about it, he doesn't sell the sham wow deals does he? Still ain't buying them. That guy is a pain in the a$$ too!


I use micro fiber towels that I buy at Oreilly's.

I like you philosphy boB! I don't buy anything off the TV, or over the phone.

BTW. How is it that you know that guys name, I refuse to even listen to his schtick.

Bought them earlier this year and all they do is push the water around. Good for soaking up large spills around the house but not for drying a car. I still haven't found anything better than 100% Egyptian Cotton towels. Sham-Wow? With the Sham-Wow it's like trying to dry your car with a kitchen sponge and when it's slightly damp they're useless for drying. More of a "Sham" than "Wow".

I wash my bullitt constantly and only use micro fiber towels.It has zero scratches or swirls.I hate them in dark colors and have gone to great lengths to not have them,I wouldn't be experimenting with unknown stuff.I stick to what works.

Several years back, I started on my 05 with a genuine chamois. Then, after reading tons of input on Mustang Forums, I switched over to micro-fiber towels....

Now, I use a micro-fiber water absorber towel, then follow with a regular micro fiber. This is the ticket for me. Oh, and it also helps if you spray the area to be dried, with your favorite detail spray, just prior to drying.....

I have a similar cloth, and I find it absorbs water very well, too well, that it seems to "suck itself" onto the car surface. I was worried about scrathes, and now prefer to use a good quality chamois (which I'm still careful with).

Yep, no real chamois on my ride, animal hide on paint?

Thanks

Thanks for your input. I found a good use for these things over the weekend. Mom visited with her spastic Boston Terrier...they pick up poop out of the grass very efficiently!!

Agree with this.....I also use the Asborber and love it.......
