Yes, we've tried the competition's cheaper microfiber detergents at Parks Detailing - Q2M Towel Wash is the best we've used in terms of providing ample cleaning power without compromising the longevity of the fibers in each towel, wash mitt or wash pad. The other cheaper solutions have tended to turn our towels "crunchy" after several washes. If you're willing to sacrifice the longevity of your towels and don't mind replacing them often, we suppose the other options are viable.
Gyeon Q2M Towel Wash helps you safely remove contamination from your microfiber towels! High-quality microfiber towels are precious accessories for every detailer. They are extremely important for multiple detailing steps, along with being costly, making it important to take care of correctly.
Q2M Towel Wash is pure, meaning it contains no fabric softeners, no fragrance and no color additives. This allows the wash to safely clean your microfiber towels, removing dirt, grime, old polish, and other detailing chemicals, while leaving them clean, soft and looking new.
You can also use Q2M Towel Wash to tackle the cleaning of microfiber wash mitts and natural wool wash mitts, along with your clothes, bath towels and more. Without any additives, it is safe for various uses outside of the automotive realm. Gyeon recommends using anywhere from 25-50ml per normal wash load (dependent upon the level of soiling in the towels and your water quality in your area) and storing your bottle in a dark, dry and cool place.
