    Ultimate Wipes are by far the better of the two towels... Not even a close one there..!

    Not even close.

    I just found some ultimate wipes this week. They were white. They were asking $7.00 a piece! I just ordered a 3 pack of SS for $6.50 from ADS. I haven't used either, but I think I will use the SS's over the UW for the money.

    Wow! I bought a 20 pack from Meguiars direct (when they were still available) for $69.99. That was a better buy then I thought!They are good MFs, they don't scratch or swirl paint, good for removing wax, etc. However I think the Supreme Shine MFs are even better. They are more absorbent and better for use with a QD.

    That's a great price on the SS 3 pack!

    I'm running out of places to store all my detailing supplies!

    The thing you gotta be extra careful about the SS MF's is that because they are so plush, they have the potential to hold a lot of hidden dangers. A problem that the UW don't have because of the very reason that many people don't like them as much is they are thinner.

    I find that with the SS MF's that if you drop them on the floor and they pick up some leaves, running them through the washer doesn't remove the particles, and that spells disaster if you think they are clean and you use them to wipe down a car.

    I always carefully check each towel as they come out of the dryer with tweezers before they go into my "acceptable" towel box.

    Generally if I drop a towel, I don't use it again until it is washed.
    MF towels do have a tendency to pick up debris very quickly, especially the Ultimate Wipes.

    Tweezers, now that is a good idea to remove stubborn debris! I'll have to try that.

    I agree with that, but I've found that not everything disappears when it's washed, especially not with the SS mfs.

    Tweezers are great! Try to use my fat fingers to remove debris and I end up pulling out fibers as well.
