Product Review: DI Microfiber Black and Yellow Towel

by

High quality microfiber is one of the most important tools in a detailer’s arsenal of products.  The Black and Yellow Towel is one of my most used microfiber products.  I have quite a large supply of these towels and have found them to be great for many tasks.

This 407GSM towel features a two sided design that has a shorter nap (as seen in the following photo) on one side and a longer, more plush nap on the other.  The towel is tag-less, so you don’t have to worry about potential marring from a tag or having to remember to remove the tag before use.

My main use for this towel is for removal of compounds, polishes, sealants, and waxes from the painted surfaces.  The soft, high quality towel has proven to be very safe on even the most delicate paints.  The shorter nap makes quick work of safely removing more stubborn residue, and the plush side (seen below) works great for reaching dust particles in cracks and crevices.  This towel is also great for rinse-less washing, quick detailers, general interior cleaning, and much more.

Within my collection of Black & Yellow towels, I have many that have been used regularly for quite a long time.  The towels are in fantastic shape and are still very soft.  The bound edge helps to prevent fraying, which means these towels will be very durable when properly cared for.

If you’re looking for a great towel that will work great in any situation, inside or outside of your vehicle, check out the Black and Yellow towel.  I’m sure you’ll be happy you did!

    Great review Zach,
    I love these towels and before I had as many I would cut the corners off my older towels due to the hard stitched corners that would seem to always leave a minor mark right after I finished polishing a panel. So when it comes to towels, rolled corners are all I use.

    hi zach..what is your cleaning program for m/f….and foam pads???? I’ve heard so many ways to wash them.right now I’m trying to get blackfire off white pads.it must be good shi….because it doesn’t come off easy.thank you for your time….john.

    • Similarly to what John mentioned, I clean my pads with diluted all purpose cleaner immediately after I am finished using them. This makes it much easier to remove residual products compared to letting the pads sit for a while after use before cleaning. Many paint sealants or waxes will be very difficult to remove completely. For this reason, it is a great idea to have a dedicated soft finishing pad that you only use for spreading wax or sealant. Then you don’t need to worry about completely removing the sealant since you’re only using that one type of product on the pad.

  3. John,

    I’m not Zach, but if you’re talking about Blackfire Wet Diamond, it’s pretty much impossible to completely remove. I dedicate a few pads and towels to only Blackfire, and then just wash them the same way I do all my others (very hot water, a few spritzes of Meguiar’s APC, and All Free and Clear detergent).

    thanks guys for your help.right away with apc and a good rinse seems to be the ticket.blackfire will now have its own pad and clothes..
