Can You Handle A Big Green FAT BOA – Drying Towel

For the past few years, waffle weaves microfibre towels have been my bread and butter go to drying towel. They have always done an great job, without a single complaint from me.  I really thought they were as good as it gets, until I used the new green 800gsm Fat BOA’s from CarPro. At first I thought that something so fluffy would be a bit to handle when wet, but I was wrong. I drag over the roof and it didn’t leave a single drop of water. That was impressive, and not so different to the other waffle weaves microfibre towels we have. Where it really started to surprise me, was when I finished the first car and it still seemed dry. Then I moved on to the second car, without having to ring it out. And completely dried that one too, Amazing !!!

These 800gsm  towels come in two sizes

Protecting Your Interior With Silk Shine Dressing – Before & After

Silk Shine dressing is one of Chemical Guys secret weapons, not only can it be used on all exterior plastics, trim and even tyres. It can be used inside your vehicle as well. Here we have the inside door of my own Audi. Before starting we cleaned the door card with Chemical Guys – Nonsense Colorless & Odorless All Surface Cleaner. On the left it shows the door card once cleaned, but still feeling a bit dull. And on the right it has been treated with Chemical Guys Silk Shine Dressing. This has not only brought the rich dark look back to the interior leather and plastic, it will also continue to protect it from any harmfull UV’s that could dull these materials even further
