A robust waffle-weave microfibre cloth for applying products and removing contamination/scratches. 30x30cm in size.

Think all microfibre is the same? Think again. Even if you discount polyamide vs polyester counts, there's cloth density, edging, pile length - and in this case, weave. Waffle-weave microfibre is sturdier than standard short-pile microfibre cloth, giving it more 'bite' on a variety of surfaces, and it can have a larger surface area - making it more absorbent. And it's still softer than cotton terry cloth. This small 30x30cm cloth gets into all areas of your bike with ease, without tearing or shedding fibres. You can apply polishes with it, buff metal to a high shine and it even mops up spillages and overspray.

Care of microfibre cloths: All Crankalicious microfibres are fully machine washable. Wash them with a non-bio liquid at 30 degrees for light soiling or 40 degrees for heavier contamination. Even better, grab some Dodo Juice Furry Liquid, which is made for the job. Powders may not dissolve and get caught in the fibres, so liquids are better... and bio detergents may eat the stitching over time. Avoid the use of fabric conditioners or softeners at all costs as these can make microfibre cloths water repellent. If this happens, have your cloth dry cleaned, or soak it in a strong APC solution overnight (Total Wipe Out concentrate is ideal for this). Finally, fluffiness can be restored by tumble drying on a low heat. High heat will damage the fibres. Some clumping/entangling of fibres is natural as the microfibre becomes older - consign old microfibres that are past their best to secondary duties like wheel cleaning.
