There are many brands and types of microfiber towels on the market, but only one line is called Pure Freakin’ Magic (or PFM for short) by Griot’s Garage.
Now this is a tall order to live up to, I mean I know AT LEAST 2 card tricks, so I know a thing or two about magic. For this review, we tested 4 different towels in the PFM line:
- Price per Towel – $38.99
- Drying Ability – Wow. Just wow. I normally use only waffle weave for drying so I was amazed the way this dried the water. It hardly felt wet after the whole car was dry. This is great as I was never a huge fan of the waffle weaves not being as soft but haven’t found a towel that could dry like one. Problem solved
- Size – It is a very good size. Large enough to do a quick job, but not too big that it is hard to maneuver.
- Price per Towel – $5.75
- Linting – This towel doesn’t even know the word linting.
- Wax Removal Performance – It did a good job. The fibers are short enough to give a good bite, but long enough to not load up with product quickly.
- Detail Spray Removal Performance – Did well also, the longer fibers allow the product to soak in as not to move around and streak.
- Size – I thought it was way too small but it actually makes for a very easy to use towel. It is basically the size of a towel folded in 4ths.
- Price per Towel – $6.25
- Size – The small size was perfect for cleaning inside windows (and outside) since you did not need to fold it, there was no layers to move around on each other so the towel stays flat.
- Cleaning Ability – Very good job. Glided very smoothly and cleaned a dirty window with ease.
- Streaking – Great as well. No streaks and the size had a lot to do with that as well.
- Price per Towel – $11.50
- Wax Removal Performance – VERY good. The tight terry weave is out of this world good. Had no problem buffing of a multitude of products with minimal effort.
- Detail Spray Removal Performance – Great. The fibers soak up quickly as too not leave any streaks. Even with CarPro Reload, which can be a bit finicky to apply/remove.
Overall – Griot’s said it best, “Pure Freakin’ Magic”.
