Microfiber towels usually have three stacking heights: short, medium and high. The more universal the towel is, the shorter the stack is. Short pile towels are harder than other towels, while long pile towels tend to be more fluffy and fuzzy. In general, short pile microfiber towels should be used on insensitive surfaces such as instrument panels and plastic trims, medium piles for coating or removing automobile wax, and long piles for polishing and drying should be coated on vehicles.
Choosing a microfiber towel containing at least 80% polyester fiber and 20% polyamide is safe and can be made into a lightweight and water absorbent cleaning cloth. Towels with higher polyamide content may absorb more, but they tend to be less elastic. Another point to note is that towels with high polyester fiber content will produce more lint. Therefore, please make sure to use a lint roller to clean up any stray strands. Microfiber towels also come in a variety of textures. Some feel soft like suede, while others are woven from waffles, which can retain more moisture. Suede towels are more suitable for polishing and polishing.
