The Gauntlet Microfiber Drying Towel

Recently The Rag Company introduced a new drying towel called “The Gauntlet Microfiber Drying Towel“.

I picked up a couple of them from Detailed Image. I got two of the 20″x30″ and a 12″x12″. The larger ones are designed to dry car paint and the small one is designed to dry wheels. This is a combination of a Twist Loop and Plush Towel. This is a 70/30 blend and is very soft and thick. Each side of the larger towels is a different color, so if you don’t like the color flip it over 🙂 There are some closeup photos of each side below and you can see the alternating Twist Loop and Plush material.

Over the weekend I was able to try the towels out. On Saturday I washed my Civic Si and used the towels to dry it. I used one of the 20″x30″ on the paint and was able to do the entire car with one towel. I was able to use the “drag” method and as I pulled the towel across the paint it left dry paint. As a matter of fact I think I could have dried another similar sized care with the same towel.

On Sunday I washed the Honda Crosstour and the Honda CR-V and used one 20″x30″ to dry both cars. These towels hold ALOT of water!

It is important to note that this towel is not one that you can wring out easily as it is very thick. I used the smaller 12″x12″ to dry my wheels and it completed dried all four of them and I think I could have dried more with the same towel.

Overall I am very happy with the towels and recommend them.
